Jadeveon Clowney was just doing what he was taught to do ... go after the player with the ball, wrap up and tackle. But now his infamous hit on Vincent Smith in last season's Outback Bowl could result in not only a 15-yard penalty, but possibly an ejection under college football's new targeting rules. South Carolina coach Steve Spurrier doesn't believe a play similar to that of Clowney's warrants a penalty, saying "it was a clean hit because he hit him in the chest and sort of ricocheted up and knocked his helmet off," and other coaches around the SEC agree.
Game changing hit
ACC coordinator of officials Doug Rhoads stated he would have penalized Jadeveon Clowney for targeting for his hit on Vincent Smith.
