Targeting has been a hot topic in college football for the past few years, with questions of ‘What is targeting?’ ‘Should the player be kicked out of the game?’ ‘Is a suspension for the rest of that game and part of the next game a just ruling?’
Regarding the hit Gaye made on Travis, there was no question whether or not it was targeting. After the game, he reached out to Travis to apologize.
Between Gaye getting ejected and Maason Smith getting injured in the game’s first drive, the defensive line for LSU is in a rough spot.
Luckily, the Tigers play against Southern on Saturday night so Brian Kelly has some time to get the defensive line ironed out before LSU enters SEC play in a few weeks.
