Oregon's Terrance Mitchell ejected for this brutal hit on Nicholls State player

New, comments

Mitchell demolished Nicholls State quarterback Beaux Hebert, getting sent to the locker room early for his efforts.

Oregon Ducks defensive back Terrance Mitchell became Saturday's second player to be ejected for "targeting." Unlike Texas A&M's Deshazor Everett, however, this penalty was very much warranted:

Mitchell led with his head, crushing Nicholls State quarterback Beaux Hebert (the most Louisiana name ever, for the record) while was sliding. A look at the still frame right before he made contact shows exactly what they mean by targeting.

The Ducks led 24-0 after the first quarter so this won't really affect the game, but woof ... you probably shouldn't be hitting guys like that.
