        Targeting:

        After a targeting call on the field the replay officials will either confirm or overturn the call, the “let the call stand” is removed. that means that for the replay officials the targeting has to be clearly targeting, this “removes” the if in doubt throw him out part of the call.

        Also, if a player is called for a 3rd targeting call during the season he is disqualified for the rest of that game and for the entirety of the next game.

        Blind side blocks:

        Forcible blind side block will receive a 15-yard penalty. targeting call may apply to this call as well.

        Overtime change:

        After the fourth overtime period, if still tied, the ball is placed on the 3-yard line for a 2-point conversion try. That continues until a team has won the game.

        Kirk will explain

          And they have ruled a field goal.

        What is the definition of a “blindside block”? Where would I find it?

          The block Bolles laid on Cam Smith vs USC a couple years ago is now a penalty.

            I’m not so sure about that. I just watched the play and Smith saw Bolles for much of the time. He just chose to focus on CBB.

              I think it was legal as well, but Pac-12 officials like to let the rest of the NCAA know they are following the rules for some reason.  I remember yelling at Brady Quinn on my TV to shut up because he was saying something like “You could almost call that a block in the back.”  Or some BS.  I bet it would get called just because of the new focus.

          I am assuming crack backs. Basically when you can’t see the block coming.

          Hope that works as I’m posting on my phone. But it’s basically when a defensive player gets clocked without opportunity to defend themselves. Very similar to hitting a defenseless receiver.

          I think these calls have been subject to targeting in the past, but usually only if the act is extremely egregious. Sounds like they will just be tightening up, which I think is good.

            So… how do you block someone that isn’t watching for you? Just stop and let him make the tackle? The game is getting softer every year.

              When it isn’t your body on the line it is easy to say that. I think pads and helmets have made the hits too brutal.  The game needs to return to what it was based on: Rugby.  And if you want to talk about tackling and hitting they get it right.  Making sure there is a future for the game.

              You can’t simply ignore CTE anymore.
