Deshazor Everett: Texas A&M DB Ejected For Targeting [Update: Oregon's Terrance Mitchell Ejected]

By Ty Duffy

Texas A&M DB Deshazor Everett was ejected via the targeting rule for this hit on Rice WR Klein Kubiak, son of Gary Kubiak. This seems pretty straight forward. The pass was clearly incomplete. Everett changed his trajectory and went out of his way to launch high on a defenseless player. This was unnecessary and could have been avoided.

Rules won’t make football safe. They may help make them safer.

UPDATE: Oregon DB Terrance Mitchell was ejected for targeting against Nicholls State quarterback Beaux Hebert, who was sliding to the ground.
