It seems like nobody has any idea what a targeting call is these days.

Players are getting ejected for tackles that look routine, and the rule seems to have a variety of definitions. One of them is that a player cannot lead with the crown of the helmet and aim for an opposing player’s head.

On a punt return in the second quarter of the Michigan-Michigan State game, it appeared that was exactly what happened.

Still, there was no call on this hit:

Chris Frey was shaken up by the play and was taken off the field. Officials did not review the play.

Surely that won’t sit well with Michigan State fans.
