What They Are Saying: Skalski’s ejection causes grumbling

Share this post:

Senior linebacker James Skalski, the quarterback of Clemson’s defense, was ejected due to a controversial targeting call in Friday’s Sugar Bowl semifinal following a hit on Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields midway through the second quarter.

It marked the second straight year that Skalski was ejected for targeting in a College Football Playoff game at the Superdome in New Orleans, as it also happened in last year’s national championship game against LSU.

While some people agreed with Friday’s targeting penalty against Skalski, many others took exception to it.
