The Neutz Hit

My belief is that Umass DB Antoine Tharpe led with his head. See for yourself.

Alex Neutz is having a dream season.  Going into the UMass Alex had a TD catch each week.  The injury took Alex out early and his TD consecutive string was snapped.  Every team knows that Licata's favorite target is Alex.   Sorry that you have to listen to Howard Simon again and especially his pronunciation of Neutz.  I totally disagree with the announcers stating the hit was clean.  Tharpe lead with the crown of his helmet.  How was this not called?  Then to call the pass incomplete? I would like to see your thoughts on the hit.  I sure hope that Alex is 1. OK 2. Gets back on the TD train against Kent.

Here are Alex's stats:
