First, terrible no call right in front of an official. Second, no suspension from the SEC? BS, again.
No way they suspend a player for the big game
He deserves it. If there were ever a defenseless player I think Murray fit the definition. If he pulled that in the NFL he'd have been fined and suspended.
That was definitely worse than some of the ones that got players suspended. My stepdad made the comment after the hit that he would be suspended and I told him that there was no way they would suspend him for the NC. They will use their "apply when it feels good" approach as usual.
If they let him off with no suspension after DJ's bs suspension, then I will buy into the favoritism theories on this board.

They have already.
It was a dirty play if I have ever seen one. Right in the earhole.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
If there were any favoritism shown in this case I would think it would be more for the SEC than for bama?
If you go by the helmet to helmet rule, then it should have been a penalty. But don't be a baby. He was running towards the ball carrier, and the tackle hadnt happened yet. he is allowed to be hit.
Good point. He clearly led with his head, though.
No, he wouldn't have. Kurt Warner got destroyed worse than that in a playoff game nothing happened.
Got a text immediately after that play from the son of a 25 year SEC ref "Dad said that's not a penalty".
I don't think he was running to anyone. Guy saw an easy shot and took advantage. Legal, yes. But it was also cheap.
But he did lead with his head which is why he should be suspended.
Would people be acting like such babies if he hadn't been a qb? He was running toward the play and deserved to get his head affected. Needs to keep thing on a swivel.
If you don't want to get hit after an int, run back to the bench.

I don't get the whole suspension thing. Slive is turning into Roger Goddell. First the 25 man limit on commitments then he wants to be the guy handing out suspensions every week. It's football. I thought the Swearinger suspension was soft as hell. Doesn't the commish have better things to do like making sure UGA doesn't drop to Chik Fila bowl.
If you don't think Slive is a Bama guy, you not paying attention. Also, Ga gets these scheduling deals cause Georgia has X times more TV's than So Carolina. Slive wants the televisions on so Ga must be relevant
Don't worry they will suspend him the first game next year thay open with Virginia Tech, so it won't be a big deal.
Is that an official ruling? If so, it shows that the 'priviledged class' of the NCAA wins again.
Did anyone get suspended in the league after DJ was handed his down?
You may run like Hayes, but you hit like $*!#
I didn't think it was either.
I am one of the most vocal about them calling things square for all teams. Thought there were several examples of hits that players didn't get suspended for that were much worse than the one that got DJ suspended. But, this was a correct no-call. He was running towards the ball carrier, therefore not defenseless. If he fails to protect himself that is his problem. It makes no sense for a QB to not be aware of the threat. DL's automatically look for QB's in situations like this. As long as he's on his feet and impeding the ball carriers progress he is fair game. I also think he lead with his shoulder, that the helmets collided was a by-product of the hit. That was a big issue I had with DJ's suspension as well. He didn't lead with his head.
Murray was fair game after throwing the INT. He should have expected to be hit.
Agreed. A guy with his experience should have known better, IMO.
SEC - Iron sharpens iron.
