Texas WR Mike Davis puts a cheap shot on Iowa State’s Deon Broomfield (Video)

College football has spent a lot of time penalizing players for targeting opponents – often with mixed results – but it also needs to crack down on players who willfully try and injure others.

Following a Texas touchdown against Iowa State, Longhorns receiver Mike Davis dove at the knees of defensive back Deon Broomfield. Neither player was near the touchdown and it was just a malicious cheap shot from Davis.

Texas was assessed a 15-yard penalty even though coach Mack Brown protested (we believe he didn’t actually see the play), but Davis should get a harsher punishment from the Big 12 for what was clearly an attempt to injure another player.
