He should watch the tape again.
It is borderline but this pic sure supports their claim.

Scored 4 touchdowns...in a single game. Polk High!
Face in chest. If this is illegal football just needs to go away.
So you admit he is hitting with the crown of his head and is looking down, you are simply claiming it is only to the chest?
I'm saying his facemask/forehead go into the RBs chest. He would have to be lower than the ball carrier, launching up for that to be with the crown of his helmet.
Your pick shows he is clearly looking down and leading with the crown of the helmet. The only question is whether or not it was to the chest only or chin and chest and if that matters according to the rule. Like I said at the top, borderline.
You are crazy. Facemask is directly into the chest, not the crown of the helmet. That is a form tackle and perfectly legal.
If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.
This is crown of the helmet.
1997 Michigan (#4) vs Penn State (#3). Two careers were ended this day on this play.
It's all about how it looks in real time and if a hit even looks too violent, then the player will be ejected....it is what it is football is a pvssy sport, at this point hockey chits on football in the violence aspect
Not sure what pic you are looking at but the one posted above clearly shows the facemask pointed toward the ground.
Look at photo 2 and 3. No way you can honestly say he is leading with the facemask.
This is funny. They ran away from Clowney most of the day. They also rolled the pocket a lot and quicker throws. Clowney did not have a chance to get up the field.
Good game plan and Lewan did a good job, but a lot of it was game planning for Clowney.
My son's message to Obama, Clemson, and Georgia
Sorry fenny, but he hit with his forhead, not the crown. It was a great hit and perfectly legal.
Seems like there might be an argument for spearing. leading with the helmet, whether or crown or forehead, would probably qualify as spearing. That being said, spearing is a 15 yard penalty, not ejection.
This^^^ Came in low, put his facemask right in his chest and drove up and through him. Perfect textbook hit.
The ACC , AUG 29 I personally am laughing at sc who can not even win their division much less a NC. Yet they try and talk more smack than anyone. Prolly jus to cover that up. You do not see real champs like Bama LSU and so on havnig to put down other teams and conferences,There games speaks for itself, The one who said they would have ejected Clown Possee is stupid.FSU,Clemson, UNC VT are setting the tone for an ACC roll. When sc actually wins a division come back and talk then. AUG 29
Former NFL Vice President of Officiating Mike Pereira disagrees with you.
Apparently you're new to the internet.
I, for one, welcome you.
Also, congratulations on your championship last season.
I agree, they definitely do not have to put down other teams and conferences, but that doesn't seem to deter them from doing it.
Lets break this down, b/c I am not sure if serious.
Bama doesn't put down other teams? You can't be serious. Take a step back from this thread and open up any of the dozen threads on Auburn and OSU. Then please report back on this comment.
Also, you say we shouldn't put down other teams or conferences, and then proceed to tell us how SC sucks b/c they can't win their division. Hmmmm, seems like you are putting down another team.
SC can't win their division? We won our division 3 years ago.
CU is setting the tone? They haven't come within double digits of us in 4 years.
You know SC beat your ACC champion by 22 points a few years ago right?
Truly awesome post on your part. You should come around more often.
FWIW, our DC agrees with you.
“I can see them saying that because he did lead with the crown of his helmet, even though he hit the guy in the chest,” Ward told TheBigSpur.com. “I can see how that’s possible. But that was a bang-bang play. I’m glad that he doesn’t have to miss a game this season.”
It is ok they will be back there this year when the championship will be recognized by the league, Hope to see you in the championship if you can boot Clemson. As for Last year the players know what they did then sent 3 OL to the NFL and the first back taken in the draft. Enjoys the laughs while you can! AUG 29!!!!!!!!!!!! I almost wish sc would win their division so they would not feel the need to be a bully Looking forward to the season. You guys enjoy! Still think the refs would be ruling is stupid. Let the kids play. You can tell if a player hits to mane and then throw the yellow and do your thing!
I really don't care what an ex NFL VP says about college football. That his was perfect. If a guy can't lead with his facemask, 50% of the tackles would be illegal.
We should also keep in mind we are talking about a "down' lineman hitting a RB who already has the ball. He is starting with his hand on the ground, and only has about 8-10(?)ft before contact. Its not like this is a safety running in full speed and lowering his head for a spear.
