Players are NEVER going to understand they can't lead with the crown of the helmet, launch, etc. Part of the problem is the guilty players are treated like they just made the winning play in, well, the CFP. Instead of like they set out to intentionally injure someone. Unless the player flagged for targeting just tripped & totally accidentally met the criteria, it is a deliberate attempt to injure, potentially seriously. 150 years from now, if CFB is still being played, and helmets are still rigid, someone will be called- if not disqualified- for targeting in almost every game.

Okay, burrow is Tom Brady with legs and balls.
Brady may not be a runner, but he sure as hell has balls.

"What did LSU do to start moving the ball?" Answer, "They started opening it up for Bourroughs."
NO NO NO. What did LSU do? They finally started getting the ball outside the 3 yard line. After that, Clemson had to start covering the receivers and the running backs so that when they got it on the 5 there at the end, there was room for LSU to maneuver.
Not counting out Clemson, simply because Dabo is a football genius, but LSU is looking pretty good.
Have to agree that the officiating was obviously sub-par!

LSU also eventually stopped running every other play out of a bunch formation. Having the best wide receiving corps in the country does very little good when you've got 4 of them bunched shoulder to shoulder with the offensive tackle. The running lanes and passing windows get squeezed pretty tight when all 22 players are between the hashes and within 5 yards of the line of scrimmage.
