Cincinnati coach Luke Fickell was honored Saturday as the FWAA’s Eddie Robinson Coach of Year in Indianapolis, and with his time at the podium, requested more leniency with regards to targeting penalties moving forward when asked what he would change about current rules across college football.

According to Action Network's Brett McMurphy, Fickell wants the rules committee to “stop ejecting kids out of college football games (for non-malicious targeting calls).”

Last season against Georgia, Fickell watched from the sideline during the Peach Bowl as Cincinnati's all-conference left tackle James Hudson was thrown out of the game for targeting after launching himself into Georgia cornerback Tyson Campbell after an 11-yard gain.

Essentially, it was a late hit from Hudson, but due to the rule and leading with the crown of his helmet, he was ejected for targeting.
