OT: Player Safety
I am watching Mizzou vs. Auburn and a Mizzou player just got shoved while out of bounds right into the corner of a golf cart. Luckily is wasn's as bad as the player that ran into the band equipment cart years ago (and severly broke his leg).

Why is anything like this allowed anywhere near the field of play?

Also, what makes what the Auburn player did any less egregious than "targeting"?

I saw the play, and the first thing out of my mouth, "I hope that kid is OK". It was a personal foul. Not sure if you can start ejecting players for every personal foul though.

I agree that that type of equipment needs to be off the sidelines during play.

IMO it should have been an ejection.

RE: OT: Player Safety
All non football equipment (in my view) should not be allowed on the field at all. If the band geeks can't get prepped for the halftime show in a timely manner, then they need to shorten their routines.

Golf carts really have no reason to be anywhere on the field. I've never seen an injury to a player where he got carted off and needed the cart in the first minute. There's nothing stopping the cart from parking in the tunnel and waiting until they are needed.

All the experts talk about player safety, but there's so much crap on the sidelines that can hurt a player... and nothing ever gets mentioned.

What was that thing behind the end zone at South Alabama? Everything else is padded besides it and of course the player runs right into it. He seems to be okay though.
