Targeting
Does anyone know if they made any changes to this rule or how it is reviewed? Think we lead the NCAA in BS targeting calls. There needs to be a better way to assess this.

RE: Targeting
Here is an article that includes the new targeting rule for 2019: The new rule no longer allows referees to “stand” with the play as called, meaning targeting penalties will be imposed only when they clearly withstand more scrutiny.

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/08/29/sport...rtime.html

Here is what was said in another article:

Targeting: This is a good news, bad news scenario for the call that causes more confusion than any other in the game. First, the bad news. The standard half-game suspensions for targeting -- forcible contact to the head, neck or shoulders of a defenseless player -- will remain intact, but a player who is ejected for the third time in a season will be forced to miss the entire next game no matter when that third (or subsequent) foul takes place.

Now the good news. You'll likely see targeting calls decrease because calls that would merely "stand" based on the ruling on the field will no longer exist. All targeting calls will still be referred to the replay booth, but the booth will now have to "confirm" the call on the field in order for a targeting foul to stand. If it can't be confirmed, it will be overturned.

I like the if it can't be confirmed, the call is overturned. This should cut down on the questionable targeting penalties and gives the best opportunity for the refs in the booth to get it right.

RE: Targeting
Something that chaps my hide is that nobody seems to mention (and/or conveniently forgets) that NIU got screwed in the MACC when Corcoran had to sit out the first half due to a bullshît targeting call from the game prior.

The "great comeback" wouldn't have been needed if NIU was allowed to play at full strength from the opening kickoff. Everyone saw what happened in the second half. It would have been a blowout and NIU would have voluntarily sat most of its starters for the 3rd and 4th quarters.

RE: Targeting
I think Corcoran gave the team the boost and energy it needed in the second half. I don’t know if the Huskies come back and recover if Corcoran wasn’t chomping at the bit to kill the Buffalo QB...

RE: Targeting
In theory I like the way targeting is written. Call it, verify, uphold/overturn. In reality it seems that officials (or at least some of them) don't bother watching the video when reviewing.
