Pitt Safety Damar Hamlin Ejected for Targeting

Pitt Safety Damar Hamlin Ejected for Targeting

Pitt safety Damar Hamlin was ejected from the Panthers’ game on Thursday night against the North Carolina Tar Heels.

Hamlin was flagged for targeting near the end of the first half while diving to make a play on a ball thrown to North Carolina wide receiver Dazz Newsome.

By rule, Hamlin was ejected for the game, but because the play happened in the first half of the game, he will not be suspended for Pitt’s next game.

Hamlin was leading Pitt with five solo tackles before being ejected. He was replaced by redshirt senior Jazzee Stocker. The Panthers led North Carolina, 17-10 at halftime.

The ACC officials should be ejected for cheating. The Tobacco Road boys always are the 12th man for Pitts opponent

Without a doubt the ACC officials are the worst of the Power Five officials. Week after week, just head scratching calls.

He was definitely missed. Stocker was torched a few times during the North Carolina comeback. Pitt has a lot of talent at DB, but when Hamlin graduates and starts playing on Sundays, we saw last night how much it will affect the D as a whole.

Stocker was in there because he’s a senior. Although you’re correct that Hamlin will be missed, they have talent at the position and they’ll have a young player that can step up.

Was at the game, another blown call. Add to the list the NC player holding down Mack’s arms so he couldn’t catch the ball in the endzone.

I have to give Narduzzi credit for not just going off in a presser about how bad that Back Judge was. At some point it might be worth the fine. The ACC officials are a caricature.

UNC OL doesn’t even do a good job of hiding or disguising their obvious blatant and unashamed holding. The ACC UNC Tobacco Row Cops just ignore it.
Finally beat the bastids, H2P!

Week after week the officiating is worse,on the targeting call on hamlin i just do t know how when both guys are diving for the football you can call targeting, my opinion that was one of many horrible calls and non calls that should’ve been made
