    If I ever saw targeting with intent to harm, it was on that play. The linebacker was clearly beat and he speared Lazard after Lazard completed his block. Dangerous and uncalled for.

    Anyone see it differently?

    I saw it. Looked like a cheap shot, but good luck getting a targeting call on someone for hitting a player who doesn't have the ball in their hands.

    I didn't see it, but one of my buddies texted me about it and sounded pretty pissed, so you are definitely not the only one.

    A desperate lashing out from a troubled youth who knew that his deity-like status was soon to be crushed forever and after getting his sociology degree from Norman he would be soon left with an unrewarding career. Targeting? no.

    Thanks for clip --- I think play in question starts about 48 second mark. Benefit of doubt: A jarring high-hit, probably not targeting, although I'm not sure why OU defender went for Lazard instead of Ryen, who was actually carrying the ball. Possibly inadvertent focus during flow of the play.

    Also the video on that page a bit further down titled "Cyclones snag the lead with 57-yard TD" is specifically of that play with 2 angles and a slow-mo.

    That was the worst cheap shot I've ever seen. He should've been suspended games in IMHO.

    As I posted in another thread Stoops' defense is known for that stuff and in the final ISU drive it cost them at the wrong time when the OU defender punched the ISU receiver.

    The Big 12 said they took safety seriously after that was trending.
    I remember sitting there going how serious do you take it if he's not suspended? What happens if that knee gets shredded?

    I think the "kind" word for that is "blatant."

    O wasn't that bad... Was meant to prob knock him down, but it is football.

    Lazard is one bad ass blocking wide receiver. He destroys every single corner he gets. Sets edges. Big advantage.

    Every time they show Ryen's TD in highlights you can see that cheap shot.

    Combine it with the back-of-the-helmet shove into the ground, and a few other dirty plays ... send the video to the league. Tell OU to clean up the cheap ****.

    Our WR blocking is legit all around. Those little swing plays to the outside work extremely well because of that. I'm going to miss Lazard next year for that very reason.

    I want to murder Davis for that cheap shot. Still gets my blood boiling.

    It was definitely a cheap shot. The OU defender didn't go after Ryen to make the tackle. Instead he hit Lazard in the helmet area while Lazard was blocking another OU defender. IMO another example of OU's undisciplined defense.
