NCAA To Make College Football, Flag Football

THE RED STATE REPORT

Obama has promised that NCAA football should be regulated by him, so as to avoid concussions.  Well, the NCAA has heard Obama and is acting.

Next college football season, an NCAA player who targets the head of a defenseless player could be ejected from the game.

On Wednesday, the NCAA Football Rules Committee unanimously approved a proposal that would tack on an ejection to the 15-yard penalty that comes with such hits.

According to the proposed rule, “if the penalty occurs in the first half, the player would be ejected for the remainder of the game. If the penalty occurs in the second half or overtime, the player is ejected for the remainder of the game and the first half of the next game.”

While I feel a purposeful helmet to helmet hit, in order to knock a player out (unconscious) should be penalized, I witnessed a large number of helmet to helmet calls that were actually bad calls.  I have seen one heck of a lot of absolutely horrible calls over the last couple of years pertaining to “head to head contact”. I do not have faith in the refs on the field being able to make that judgment call. Even if they review the play right after it happens to determine an ejection, they are always going to error on the side of precaution and people are going to be kicked out of games when they shouldn’t be. I would estimate 80% of the helmet to helmet calls were bad calls.  Either the player wasn’t aiming for the others helmet, hit the other with his shoulder pads or the other player lowered their head, therefore causing the hit.

    There is a business that makes signs that are pulled behind aircraft that is really excited about this.

    They have the Mooshelle prototype ready complete with the “Middle Belt” pull feature for extra challenge.

    Oh, and also, no score will be kept, there will be no win-loss records, and there will be no BCS Championship Bowl. Each year a different team will be declared the national champion, according to a federal department of athletics regulatory schedule. All other teams will be awarded ribbons, trophies and a free meal at Chuck-E-Cheese.

    The only way Goodell can stomach doing that scene is to know he has Jane Skinner waiting at home.

    I think Obama may have been hit in the head with a football at an early age, years before he started wearing that swishy mom helmet while bicycling.

    @ sablegsd- AMEN

    I hope he’s all snuggy comfy with Reggie by the fireside up in Stuart, FLORIDA, where the temp is in the 40′s and the north wind off the ocean is about 20 knots and there’s no press haranguing him about his soft balls with softball questions.
