targeting. I believe there's a special section about it in the NCAA rulebook.
His quote after the game:
“We knew that they were going to play cover zero when we were inside the 5,” Watson told ESPN’s Tom Rinaldi. “And all we needed was a good pick by TE (Jordan Leggett). And TE picked ’em and (Hunter) Renfrow got inside the end zone, and I just threw the ball where we could make sure he caught it. And that’s what he did."
ND is the only school I ever seem to see get flagged.
There is a little difference in the two plays. On the play vs Florida State, our offense picks the defender, who if you are looking at the formation, is the one to guard Robinson. One the Clemson play that WR looks to run a slant route, NOT a straight ahead run it looks like the DB engages him.
You will not get away with blocking the person that has the WR in coverage at the snap of the ball. In the Clemson game no one tried to block the guy who had coverage of the player catching the winning TD pass. I know it sucks but that is how it is called.
Disagree totally. The Fla St defenders engaged our receivers too on that play. Clemson clearly committed two offensive pass interference plays in the game. They just weren't called. The enforcement was also incorrect on the defensive pass interference play prior to the game winning score.
Additionally it was a late flag.
difference in the plays except that the Ref called it against ND and no one else gets called for it.
I did not hear Kurt going on and on about the illegality of the play last night like he did when it happened to ND. My God, the "experts" just could not talk enough about how it was the perfect example of illegal when ND did it - just like the A-hole commentating on the video you posted.
Not a word last night. Anyone from Alabama who raises the issue is called a whiner. Which is good because they called us all whiners when it happened to us. Nice to have some payback here.
