    Dude, that's targeting in every single college football game this year, last year, and next year.

    You got to deal with these. Only reason their in this is because of lack of red zone execution by OSU.

    Lawrence is a great athlete. He made the Buckeye safety look awful. That was a heck of a play. Now it’s 16-14 Buckeyes. It’s hard to believe how they could look so good in one quarter and just the opposite in the 2nd quarter.

If it needs to be a penalty still fine, but a player who puts in all this time should not be ejected for a play like that.
    If tackler keeps his head up, it's not a penalty...simple as that.

    Shaun Wade is 6’1”. Trevor Lawrence is 6’6”. Explain how Wade can hit Lawrence in the helmet, unless Lawrence sees it coming and cowers up to brace the hit.

    I wouldn’t have expect any of you Buckeye haters to understand but thank you @futurecoach for being somewhat rational.

    Ohio St dominated that half but Clemson should be heading in to the half with the lead. Make that 1st qtr FG and they're up 17-16 right now.

    Okay. You really need to get over yourself...

    OSU is a great team. They have the lead. They'll come back.

    Every college football team has had to deal with calls like this. Don't act like this is a new revelation.

    Take off your Buckeye glasses. Helmet to helmet on a QB has been called all year, it's not like they just made it up. If Wade tackles with good form, head up and putting his facemask into the ball carrier...it's not a penalty.

    At the end of the day even though I don’t want OSU to win. I still am a football fan and one I hate that is called a penalty, and two a player should never be thrown out for that.

    Who is going to win this thing now?

    It doesn't matter who you picked going in, who is going to win now?

    You can literally never lower your head and initiate contact with the crown of your helmet, regardless of what the opposing player does. By the definition of the rule, that is a penalty 100% of the time, regardless of how much we dislike the rule.

    Exactly, you have no explanation or logic, when someone presents facts. He was going for the body and Lawrence turtled.

    I’ll give you a second chance to explain how Wade could have adjusted running full speed with a 10 yard head start...

    This is where I am at.

    All things considered no way that deserves an ejection.

    If Ohio State wins can he play next week or does he have to sit that one out too?

    Wait for what? It's not the QB's job to make sure a player doesn't lead with the crown of his helmet. It doesn't matter if QB is standing, crouching, squatting or crawling around on all fours, you can't hit him with the crown of the helmet in the head.

    Sit out a half.
