Targeting ejection

Player #1 is at Middle Linebacker

His is called for targeting on this tackle. Do you think they should have ejected him?

Doesn't look flagrant, which is the prerequisite for an ejection. Targeting in NFHS is really more of a description of a type of personal foul.

Under NCAA rules this would APPEAR to possibly be targeting (QB becomes defenseless when in grasp of other 2 players) and contact may be to head or neck area and is forcible. Again, not 3D and not the greatest angle, so can't make a definitive ruling here. NCAA now allows a non-flagrant targeting foul to be a 15 yard penalty with no ejection as long as its the first targeting foul on the offender. I would definitely go that route but not rule out the ejection in my game.

NFHS may vary, of course. I don't think you can clearly judge flagrant or not through the video unfortunately.

In a FED game, I’d strongly consider a DBPF. I don’t see any reason to eject.

NCAA does not allow this.

Texas allows this.

You cannot be ejected for any targeting unless there is deemed flagrant. So a player could have multiple targeting fouls and not be ejected from the game at all.

That is not the case in NCAA games or rules.

Peace

You're right. I got ahead of myself and mixed the new NCAA replay rules with Texas HS UIL changes. Haven't had any targeting calls on the field this year.

I think this would be considered a targeting in college. The player is defenseless at this point because he is in the grasp of two defenders and his forward progress has been stopped, and the defensive player does appear to lower his helmet in the process of the hit and make contact with the crown of the helmet.

I can't say if in HS it would or would not be an ejection, because I am not familiar with the wording of the HS rule.

What I will say is that based on where the flag comes in from, I would have an argument from the DC that the official did not have a view to actually see the contact to the head or neck or if the contact was with the crown of the helmet.

I do think it is absolutely a personal foul because his momentum was stopped and it was well after that happened.
