It appears as though some defensive players were given the lay of the new land yesterday as far as the targeting rule. Many of them took to twitter to voice their displeasure. I thought freshman Ryne Rankin's were especially cogent.
I can't stand the thought of one of these calls changing the course of the game. I can't stand the thought of one of these penalties costing us a suspended player, per the new rule. And I certainly can't stand the thought of one of these flags costing Georgia the game completely.
But you know what, I can't stand the thought of our defense playing soft and scared either.
