Urban Meyer: Targeting Rules Needs Review
Posted By Seth Moed On October 21, 2013 @ 9:23 PM In NCAA,Sports Media | No Comments
After having his first player ejected because of a targeting violation, Meyer took exception to both the interpretation of the rule that led to the disqualification of cornerback Bradley Roby and the heavy loss that accompanies the flag after reviewing the hit and consulting with officials over the weekend.
Like all plays involving a targeting call, Roby’s hit in the first quarter of a 34-24 win over Iowa on Saturday was reviewed in the booth on replay, with a chance for the ejection to be overturned. But officials upheld the on-the-field verdict, and the No. 4 Buckeyes played the rest of the game without one of their most important contributors.
