Two games into the season, college football's new rules and emphasis on eliminating 'targeting' has come into play infrequently.
Clemson coach Dabo Swinney believes that's an encouraging sign for the game, but he says "it's too early to tell" how the rule will be implemented, long-term.
"From my standpoint, because we've only had two games, it really hasn't been an issue," Swinney said. "We don't coach anything different here.
"As I said earlier, my biggest concern is those unintentional collisions and guys getting thrown out, where it's bang, bang, obviously no intent, guys getting ejected. That's the biggest thing to me."
Swinney said he has no problem with 'obvious ones' being called and punished.
"The obvious ones - I'm glad to see they're enforcing those," he said. "That's the biggest change. The rule hasn't changed; it's just how they're enforcing the rule. I think we'll see more as we go.
"Again, from our standpoint, it hasn't been a factor these first couple games. We'll see as we keep moving forward. I think it's just too early to tell right now."
