    Clemson as long as they can keep it close in the 1st half I think they will wear LSU starters down in the last half Clemson rotates players more than most teams

    LSU bay-bee! SEC all the way. I picked LSU before the game started but also picked under on the over/under of 66. They're at 67 now and will likely climb higher. LSU was just a 7 point favorite but currently 42-25. I really thought it would be defensive battle both ways. But, Burrow is being Burrow. Also, Clemson is taking it on the chin after losing their defensive leader for targeting.

    I couldn't make it through the longest game I've seen in my life. The targeting call was weak IMO, with the helmet making a glancing blow which to me signals a lack of intent to injure. It is foot ball, right? The the point that I quit was the completed pass by Clemson which would have brought them to with seven IIRC. LSU initiated contact grabbing the jersey and the receiver fought back, making the catch. It may have been a different outcome without those two key officiating items...call and non-call.

    The targeting call was legit. You can't spear and never have been allowed to- so don't lead with the crown of the helmet. He did and got to take a shower early because of it. There's playing hard and then there's trying to hurt folks. He was riding that thin line between the two for the whole 2nd half.

    The refs were letting the DB's and wideouts hand fight and push off too much for the whole game. I noticed it and formed that opinion on the opening drives of both teams. It was just a matter of time before something happened well up the field that resulted in changing a key play.

    Targeting/Spearing is exactly what it was. Leading and hitting with the crown of the helmet. Doesn't have to be to the head. Totally legit call IMHO. Some calls could have gone either way but it all evens out in the end. That's why they play the game.

    Agree with the targeting foul. Clemson's MLB (can't recall name now) was spearing all night. He is the one who tore Burreaux's rib cartilage loose from his ribs with the backfield hit as Joe unleashed the TD pass just before half ended. Hard hitting has always been part of football but never got called. The targeting foul/DQ has been one of the most significant rules changes of the past decade and has been good for football. Not convinced? Think Jack "the assassin" Tatum's hit on Daryl Stingley which left Stingley "Quaded out". I was at the UGA vs Auburn game the night UGA wide receiver Reggie Brown went up for a pass over the middle and Auburn's safety hit him helmet to helmet and Brown lay lifeless on the ground for ~ 5 minutes. Everyone in the stadium and watching from home thought he was dead. It wasn't a penalty back then but has been one of the better additions to the game. And who can forget the dreaded '70s era Steelers' MLB Jack Lambert? Spearing was his specialty and his personal goal was to take his targets out of the game. Tackling the QB by "going low" is one of the more ridiculous foul changes - back in my football influenced days about the best way to tackle was to wrap up your opponent around the legs. Overall, I think football - at both the collegiate and NFL level - still calls too many fouls and needs to be more tolerant of incidental contact. Especially since replay, while good for the game overall, adds a lot of dead air time to games. But, then again, an uncalled defensive PI can change the outcome of a game.
