Henry Josey's injury was dirty and Ryan White should have been ejected

On Saturday, all the talk about the SEC Championship game was about the offensive display that both, Auburn and Missouri put on. However, the Auburn Tigers pulled away late and there was a legitimate reason why. Here is the timeline of Henry Josey's injury by Bleacher Report.

Defensive back Ryan White made a touchdown saving tackle, but then he made a game altering play. After Josey’s long run through the heart of the Auburn defense, White pushed Josey into a cart. This was no accident, however. The play was already five yards out of bounds when the final push happened.

White effectively, ended Missouri’s chances of winning the game on that play. The fateful play happened around 7:17 p.m. late in the third quarter. Henry Josey didn’t return until 8:02 p.m. The game was all but over at that point.

College football says they are all about safety, but when they had a real chance to eject a player, they didn’t. Yet, there is this phantom rule called targeting, which primarily means, hitting too hard. Henry Josey finished the game with nine carries and 123 yards in three quarters. With him in the lineup, Missouri scored 42 points. Without him, Missouri was shutout in the fourth quarter.
