Quarterback Brett Smith gets drilled and taken out of the stadium the field in an ambulance after a horse-collar and a late-hit tackle to Smith’s head in the fourth quarter.
A penalty was assessed for the horse-collar by freshman cornerback Chris Dukes of Toledo. No penalty was assessed on senior safety Jermaine Robinson on the hit to the head on Smith. Was it a late hit? That’s debatable, but it was a hit to the head, which should have been another penalty or perhaps other disciplinary action.
Robinson had one of two interceptions Smith threw. Robinson is one of Toledo’s captains and Toledo beat writer Ryan Autullo said Robinson was emotional about the hit, meaning he felt bad and there was not any intent to hurt Smith.
