    Guessing he just needs to avoid SEC teams if he ever wants to win one. His chances are better..

    What is it, 1 & 12 versus SEC in bowl games (all-time)???

    I know at one point, it was 0 for 9……I just called them the Ohio State “0 for 9’ers”

    Ryan Day is on the hot seat. Lose to Michigan again this year and he is out as OSU coach.

    The call was REVERSED. And it's not like the replay was unclear; you can see exactly what happened. That means the officials found clear evidence that the original call was wrong -- not even close.

    It was a nasty, nasty hit -- just like DBs are trained to do. If Day wants to protect receivers by changing the rules so that a hit like Bullard's would qualify as targeting or a personal foul, he should start campaigning for that rule change right away.

    But don't go whining about something that was entirely legal under the current rules -- just so you don't have to look inward at your coaching and your preparation ... and the fact that, in another year, your job may be in jeopardy

    I honestly don't see it as targeting. When I was watching the game live on TV, I did think it was targeting at first until I saw the various replays. After watching them, I don't see targeting, All I see is a defender making a great play to knock the ball from the receiver, and boy, he succeeded. Just a legit hard hit. Nothing more. I guess coach Day don't see those kind of hits in the Big Baby conference. We hit hard here in the SEC. It's football, not a dancing competition. Maybe that beard coloring he uses is affecting his brain or something. Tuck those lips in and quit crying, coach! The game is over! 😜

    • For it to be targeting one of these would have to apply. There was never any shot to the head or neck. The receiver went out of bounds came back in and touched the ball first. He hit him in the shoulder not the head. -
    • 1. Launch-a player leaving his feet to attack an opponent by an upward and forward **** of the body to make forcible contact in the head or neck area
    • 2. A crouch followed by an upward and forward **** to attack with forcible contact at the head or neck area, even though one or both feet are still on the ground
    • 3. Leading with helmet, shoulder, forearm, fist, hand or elbow to attack with forcible contact at the head or neck area
    • 4. Lowering the head before attacking by initiating forcible contact with the crown of the helmet

    Boo freakin' hoo. My football player got hurt by a football player while playing football in a football game.

    Hey genius, check the rules. It was a textbook, "Greg Blue" hit. Next time teach your guy to hold onto the ball and not bang his head on the turf. If he had, you score. Seems that should be your focus.

    Well of course he does. The one thing I can say about Day was he was in desperate mode for that game. His emotions were like Shane Beamer on speed. He wanted and needed that win so bad he could feel it on every play and that play pretty much knocked them out. I understand why he is so wound up - he has proven he can’t win big games with equal and often better, talent and this game would’ve given him some breathing room. The replay was clear - the hit was indeed very hard but also very clean. The fact he was “knocked out” isn’t indicative of a helmet hit but of his head bouncing off the turf. He will be like uncle Rico soon - if only they hadn’t picked up that flag…

    I can understand thinking it is targeting initially. I did as well! But replay clearly shows it wasn’t. If a head college football coach can’t look at a replay and say “ok, hard hit, but a clean hit”, then something is wrong with his knowledge of the rules of the game. Maybe he should teach his players how to play tough and hit like Kirby does. Some of those hits I’m certain have won UGA games over the years.
