    How many so-called Trojans thought that was the right call?

    That was helmet to the chest.

    At least Helton's coaching is consistent. 2 big penalties on the first drive.

    if you need ANY more proof the PAC is against SC check out the booth review for targeting when there was no flag on the play

    I can’t blame Rector on that play. You can’t stop and pull up not knowing if the RB is going to drop his head. Weak call in my opinion on the refs....

    That’s why sometimes arm tackling is the only option. Sucks but it is hard to play the way the game used to be played.

    Okay....I'm all about player safety.....however this targeting and automatic ejection rule is getting ridiculous.....there was no intent there.....such a fast bang bang play.....if there's no intent, there should be no ejection!.....it's impossible to change your launch mid-air as the opponent dips there head.

    By the letter of the law, it was the correct call. But what do you expect from a team that doesn't practice proper tackling? And...who was that clown dancing behind the referee? The very personification of a Helton coached team.

    It’s not just the ball carrier being protected by that rule, Nick Bouniconti’s kid was paralyzed lowering his head like that.

    I miss the days when getting the guy to the ground was a tackle.

    Agree. Not a good call but Helton has lost the benefit of the doubt due to all the other calls in prior games. This one was questionable but these personal fouls happen every game to multiple players.

    The rule is anyone leading with the crown of the helmet. It doesn't matter where the hit was on the opposing player.

    Damn when I played in the 70s and 80s I would have got a helmet sticker for a hit like that. The problem is a great defensive play like we just saw, is a huge motivator and gets guys pumped on both offense and defense. Guess I'll have to watch the grandson's flag football team play more, they have more life and fire than my Trojans.

    Fight On !!!!
