During the SEC Coaches Teleconference this week, Mississippi State head coach Joe Moorhead was asked about his opinion on the targeting call against Devin White. Here is what he had to say, according to the The Daily Journal:
quote:

Do you have any thoughts about the targeting ejection call on Devin White this past weekend?

Moorhead: “I saw the play and that was the call that was made. It's a difficult situation because of the interpretation of the rule. You have the back-up in the replay to try to make it right.

“Any rule that's in place that helps facilitate player safety is one I'm in favor of. It's really not my position to judge the calls that were made in our game for or against us. Those are made by the referees and you've just got to deal with the call that was made.”

Does there need to be some sort of adjustment to what constitutes an ejection and what doesn't?

Moorhead: “They usually solicit the opinion of coaches like that and we provide our input and decisions are made. Those decisions are made to try to help prevent hits that put players in jeopardy from a health standpoint. It's hard to say if less ejections would lesson some of those hits. You'd have to look and see if the player ejections from a result of targeting calls are helping to bring the number of targets during the season down. To me, that's really where you have to make a decision there.”

What a bullshite answer. Stop asking questions of coaches that are just going to result in crap answers like that. Everyone knows that call would not be made against certain teams. And to not have a tiered penalty where everything is not an ejection and even an ejection does not always result in suspension into the next game. It's absolutely stupid.

How about starting with calling the penalty against every team instead of selectively choosing which team will be called for it and which won't. Frick the SEC!

You won't get any coach criticizing it because the SEC would fine them and possibly suspend them. There will be zero tolerance for any coach or player to run their mouth against the SEC and their ilk. I don't get how the fans or even the media don't understand this. You will never get their real opinion.

Basicly says he has no opinion. Why even ask a question to a coach. They know if tgey say something critical of the referees there will be Hell to pay so they just say nothing.

If the comments I have read are accurate, he will NOT and can NOT say anything as he has yet to play AlaBama. If he says anything, they will screw him more intentionally than was already in the works.
