After taking time to think more about this it still kind of bothers me about how many head shots Alabama took on defense. To see targeting called throughout the season. With some calls really made you think about really you called that. Even the Bosa hit as the game got started last year. Players have adjusted the height of their hits. While staying away from the head area. Alabama at times went all out hits directly to the head. Not close to a clean football tackle. Also some tackles were not tackles just using your athletic ability to run through someone. Not even attempting to wrap up.

Some of the hits seemed at least close to being across the line. But also why Alabama just couldn't bully there way to a win. I thought some of the hits deserved a flag and looked at for targeting. But then the refs were already getting enough air time to look at a replay.

The vaunted Tide defense gave up a whopping 511 yards ! Got to love ole Dabo,he like a big teddy bear,and Boulware reminds me of the energizer bunny.

Boulware is a fired up beastly bull. :shock: One he((( of a tough kid. Great getting to the ball. Best linebacker play I seen all year imo. Cabinda for Penn State comes close but Boulware takes the head hunter prize. :shock: Will Boulware be back on the Tiger roster next year Bolt? Cabinda and a bunch of Nitt's will be back next year. Both sides of the ball. Should be pretty good and a tad better.

I agree farmer I was telling mrs. bait the very same thing. she's turned into quite the analyst and rules guru as well. makes ole bait proud. she went from being a majorette in high school. not knowing a home run from a field goal to she could talk football with anybody now. my bestest football watching buddy.
