GAINESVILLE -- The 2013 season hasn’t started yet, but coach Will Muschamp already hates the NCAA’s new targeting rule.
For the second time this preseason, Florida’s coach voiced his displeasure in the latest rule that allows officials to eject players immediately who they determine intentionally led with the crown of their helmet.
“I don’t like the rule,” Muschamp said. “I don’t know what was wrong with what we were doing before.”
Muschamp griped that the rule places too much pressure on everyone involved.
“I’m all for player safety, but I don’t think it answers any questions about the other issues. … I think it puts too much on the officials. I think it puts too much on the replay booth and too much pressure on them to err in a way that I don’t think helps our game.”
