They don't also get the conference championship guaranteed in their backyard was more my point. At least as far as I can tell. Sounds like it's a non-issue though - take that, Rams & Chargers fans!
Honestly , Atlanta is almost as much Alabama's backyard as it is UGA's. When Alabama is playing the SEC championship game there against anyone other than Georgia it is a huge Bama home crowd. It is only when UGA is on the other side that UGA has the home edge

Georgias secondary got exposed and now trying to hurt people.
That was a shoulder to shoulder hit.. cmon.

edit: you can't float a ball into the end zone and not expect to get hit.. QB put his WR in a very dangerous situation there.

What a shitty anouncer. Called a touchdown in the ifrst half while the guy was still on the 15 (he then tripped and didn't make it) now here he says the ball is out of bounds -- then starts talking about the next play -- and completely missed the receiver almost catching it.

I can’t kill Fowler too much because I also thought that was a throwaway live.

Seems like the officials are calling targeting one way in these big games and a different way in every other game.

Seems like it’s been pretty consistent according to rule, it’s just that the understanding of the rule is poor. You still hear people say “helmet-to-helmet” as if that matters.

No targeting. vast majority of the hit was shoulder to shouler. One angle looked like helmets may have touched, others didn't
The view from the sideline showed it was a clean shoulder to shoulder hit.. albeit an extremely fast and pretty brutal hit. The other view, as you said, made it look like he led with his head.

How was the Michigan-TCU one not crown to a defenseless receiver? I totally get NOT wanting to call it, but it seemed very blatant on replay.

Again it’s OSU’s night. What a nightmare day for Michigan fans.
The only thing worse than losing Super Bowl 42 would somehow having to watch the Colts earn the opportunity to wax the Giants the following week.

The CB put so much force into his upper body that he deflected himself upward on contact, and hit the ground after the WR.
Did he leave his feet? What part of what you're saying is defined as a 'launch'? I didn't see him jump.. saw him run through the receiver, but that seems like a clean hit to me.

Targeting review works different from other reviews. For targeting the replay booth must confirm all aspects. Where is the smoking gun shot of the crown of the helmet making contact to the receiver? The video is all over the internet yet I’ve not seen that shot yet.

He definitely launches but the force was to the shoulder. Not a foul.

I've only seen targeting called with leading with the crown of the helmet.. can targeting happen any other way? (I know you're specifically saying helmet to helmet..) Just wondering as I'm not sure how it's typically been called since I've only seen a few games this year.

You don't think #2 leads with the crown? I guess we all see things differently, but in every angle it seems obvious to my eyes. He lowers the head and leads with it.

Two types of targeting. Both need a player to “take aim” to punish with an “indicator of targeting” (such as a launch, lowering head, etc):

Type 9-1-3: Forcible Contact with the crown of the helmet to any opponent anywhere on the body

Type 9-1-4: forcible contact to the head/neck area of a defenseless player with any part of the body

OSU's coach is almost as unlikeable as OSU is in general (as a PSU fan)

He absolutely leads with it. But I haven’t seen evidence that the crown is the first part of the helmet to make contact (as opposed to the side of the helmet). The blow looks glancing.
