Nick Bolton ejected for awful 'targeting' call against Arkansas
What is targeting?
I’m not sure anyone knows anymore.
Missouri’s All-American candidate linebacker Nick Bolton was ejected for a controversial targeting call against Arkansas wide receiver John David White.
White attempted to make the catch, and Bolton absolutely leveled him at midfield. The call on the field was targeting, and somehow, the review “confirmed” the call on the field, which disqualified Bolton from the game.
Here’s the replay:

After watching the replay multiple times, it was clear that Bolton led with his shoulder. There was no ill-will attempt at injuring White or leading with the head.
