Twitter reacts to no-targeting call on FSU’s Jacques Patrick

Jacques Patrick-Florida State-Florida State football-targeting

Depending on who you ask, Florida State running back Jacques Patrick just might be fortunate to remain in Saturday’s game against Duke after a targeting call against him was reversed.

In the third quarter, Patrick was originally whistled for targeting after a helmet-to-helmet hit on Duke safety Jeremy McDuffie. After an official review, the call was not upheld and Patrick was allowed to remain in the game.

Was it targeting or no targeting? You make the call. But Twitter was certainly quick to chime in with their reaction.

It would have been a huge loss for the Seminoles: Patrick had led the team in rushing up until that point. But, as Rittenberg said, no one really knows what targeting is now, and that includes FSU safety Derwin James.
