Injuries are a part of football.
It seems like more and more the issue of safety is creeping into the game and there are rules being implemented in the college game to keep concussions from happening.
If a player is determined by an official to have administered a head-to-head blow to an opponent, they can be suspended for the rest of the game and possibly part of the next. It has been termed as targeting.
That means last year's play by South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney in the Outback Bowl that almost took the head off Michigan running back Vincent Smith is now illegal.
As if the coaches didn't have enough to worry about, they now have to instruct their defensive players to pull back and not aim high.
