    Big Ten coordinator of officials still regrets targeting call against Gophers

    CHICAGO — Big Ten football officials called targeting penalties 21 times last season. After video review, they reversed that call on the field nine times, and coordinator of football officials Bill Carollo wants one back.

    In the second quarter of a scoreless game Nov. 7 between the Gophers and Ohio State, Buckeyes safety Joshua Perry was flagged for targeting as Minnesota quarterback Mitch Leidner threw an interception. Vonn Bell then returned it 16 yards for a touchdown.

    After rewinding the footage multiple times, the call was reversed, and the Buckeyes took a 7-0 lead en route to a 28-14 victory at Ohio Stadium.

    “I know these targeting plays that still hang with me,” Carollo said Tuesday at Big Ten media days.

    meh. Can't cry over what happened last year... only what they do this year. They've got a good foundation, and if the hype surrounding Leindner proves true, they might be able to contend for the west.

    Let's get 'em, boys!
