Georgia defensive lineman Ray Drew was ejected from the Vanderbilt game today after what looks like a very bad targeting call.
With just over eleven minutes remaining in the 2nd quarter, Drew (#47) came in virtually unblocked and hit Vanderbilt quarterback Austin Carter Samuels. Drew extended his arms and hit Carter Samuels in the chest, and his facemask also appeared to hit the Vandy QB.
The play was reviewed, as all targeting calls are, and the ejection was upheld. It’s seems very obvious that this was not targeting, just a late hit on the quarterback.
Impartial fans and writers have even taken to Twitter to defend Drew and dispute the call. What do you think? Check out the GIF of the hit below.
