COLUMBIA, S.C. — With 45 seconds left in the first half of Sunday’s game against Georgia, South Carolina linebacker T.J. Holloman was ejected for targeting after a hit on quarterback Jacob Eason.
However, after the officials’ replay review, Holloman’s penalty was wiped away and he was allowed to remain in the game.
To say the initial ruling was wrong may be an understatement.
T.J. Holloman delivers a nice hit on Jacob Eason. He got called for … targeting. Uh, what?
