Dax Eating a Towel Dot gif

It had me laughing when I saw it live. More importantly, it was evident how much Dax wanted to be on the field.

Dax is a Hokie through and through.

There's always a lighthouse. There's always a man. There's always a city.

Phantom Targeting Calls will get after ya. He seems to be adapting well to his role this year, finally seems to be playing the right position. Hopefully he gets ample time to audition for the show the rest of the season.

I can imagine no more rewarding a career. And any man who may be asked in this century what he did to make his life worthwhile, I think can respond with a good deal of pride and satisfaction:
“I served in the United States Navy"

There wasn't much phantom about it. It's a harsh call but the rule seemed to be properly applied

Agreed. I hate that Dax was out, but it was applied letter of the law.

Outspoken team cake advocate. Hates terrapins. Resident Macho Man Gif Poster. Distant cousin to Dork Magic. Frequently misspells words.

At some point I might have to watch the game online. Live it looked like a perfect hit. Even the replay showed in the stands showed a clean hit.

one thing that is tricky is measuring intent. I think Dax was trying to tackle with his shoulder but made incidental contact with his helmet. By the book, targeting. Was he head hunting? I doubt it.

Onward and upward

exactly, not the kind of the play the rule is intending to prevent, but the kind of play that is prevented by the rule nonetheless. watched on TV at live speed as it happened i thought it was a BS call, but the replay showed it was correct. harsh, but correct.

At live speed i knew it was targeting, he lowered his head. It was blatantly obvious they were going to call it. He keeps that up and runs through the guy its legal.

While this play might not have been dangerous, the rule is meant to stop players from lowering their head, so its trying to teach players not to lower the head in more dangerous situations.

Chomping at the bit lol

You're the only ones that I can talk to about this, you guys.

Chumping at the bit, then?

If you're not sure if my comment warrants a "/s", it probably does.

Dax, I so hope you have the opportunity to play at the next level. Same with Tre. The people who have really stuck things out so deserve a shot at glory.
