Cincinnati's all-conference lineman ejected for dumbest targeting penalty of bowl season
Cincinnati’s all-conference left tackle James Hudson was ejected late in the second quarter of Friday’s game against Georgia in the dumbest targeting call of the bowl season.
Bearcats quarterback Desmond Ridder completed a pass to running back Jerome Ford for 12 yards, and Hudson ran over to the sideline and hit Georgia cornerback Tyson Campbell. Campbell was standing out of bounds after the play, and Hudson took a cheap shot against him.
After a review, the officials called targeting and ejected Hudson for the hit on Campbell. Was it a late hit and a personal foul? Sure. Should he have been ejected for the hit?
