Baylor player suspended for one half after vicious block

Baylor receiver Corey Coleman will be suspended for the first half of Saturday’s game with Iowa State after leveling Kansas State cornerback Kip Daily with an illegal hit, the Big 12 announced on Monday.

The hit occurred during the second quarter of the  Bears’ 35-25 win over the Wildcats.  On the play, Coleman smashed Daily to the ground with a violent block. Daily stayed on the ground for a while and then came out of the game. There was no penalty on the play, but it looked like Coleman’s helmet hit Daily’s helmet, which is a violation of the new targeting rule in college football.

The Big 12 reviewed the play and and the league’s coordinator of officials, Walt Anderson, deemed that a flag should have been thrown.

“As a result of our review and conclusion that targeting should have been called, Mr. Coleman will be suspended for the first half of Baylor’s next game against Iowa State under Rule 9.1.4 of the NCAA rules book,” Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said in a statement.

Coleman is third on the Bears with eight receptions for 160 yards and one touchdown this season.

    Legal in the Big12:

    Not legal in the Big12:

    It must suck to be in a conference where every single detail is put in place to favor the University of Texas *

    *unless you are the University of Texas

    Texas Tech, prepare your anus. You are next.

    Did you double post to highlight the “double standard?”

    It actually stopped being funny a while back. This league truly does have rules for Texas and rules for anybody else. No jokes, just reality.

    That Iowa State replay call was a travesty. With video clearly showing the Texas guy hitting the ground with the ball long gone in the hands of a Cyclone, the Big 12’s official statement was “Yep, right call, couldn’t see anything to overturn on replay.” And delivered by an alum of Texas, to boot.

    While perusing the Big12 Football schedule, I have come to the realization that Texas got 12 days to prepare for Iowa St. 10 days for Oklahoma, 14 days for TCU, 12days for Tech and 11 days for Baylor.

    Why don’t you just go ahead and rename it the University of Texas Plantation Conference?
