Florida RB ejected from UGA game following contentious targeting call
Florida might not be having much trouble with UGA during Saturday’s rivalry game in Jacksonville, but the team has had to deal with one of its players getting ejected.
Leading 20-3 late in the third quarter, freshman running back Jordan Cronkrite was flagged for targeting on a sideswipe block he made during a one-yard Gators run toward the left sideline. After reviewing the play, officials determined that the hit involved helmet-to-helmet contact with UGA defensive back Malkom Parrish, who had been making his way toward Florida ball-carrier Demarcus Robinson.
The ruling means that Cronkrite will miss the first half of next week’s game against Vanderbilt. You can decide for yourself if the play actually constituted targeting below:
