Louisiana Governor Chimes In On No-Call In LSU/Alabama Game
On the first Saturday in November, the eyes of the College Football world are typically on LSU/Alabama no matter what time the game is at. This year, it was a tightly contested game throughout until the Tide pulled away in the 4th Quarter. The Bama win over the Tigers isn't what is making headlines after the game though...
LSU Quarterback Jayden Daniels had to leave the game in the 4th Quarter following a hit from Crimson Tide linebacker Dallas Turner. Daniels, who tried to stay in the game, was placed in the concussion protocol after a stellar effort that saw him throw for 219 yards and run for 163 in the loss.
The hit from Dallas Turner has turned some heads after the hit appeared pretty vicious, but only warranted a Roughing the Passer penalty. Even some of the big names in college football began to chime in on the situation. Ole Miss Head Coach Lane Kiffin had this to say about the hit...
"I can say — nothing against those officials — I was blown away that was not targeting," Kiffin told reporters on a Sunday Zoom meeting. "I mean, from the second that I saw it. And the hit to the neck and head injury — how that wasn’t and how that wasn’t reviewed."
LSU Head Coach Brian Kelly was also not pleased with the no-call on the targetting either...
"We asked them. They said that the replay booth was reviewing it for targeting," Kelly said. "Obviously I don't have the ability to see that. Anytime there is contact to the head or neck area you're thinking there must be some form of targeting. They reviewed it, didn't feel there was, so we moved on."
The no-call even warranted Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards to make a post regarding the situation.
The Tigers would eventually lose to the Crimson Tide 42-28.
