During the initial review of the Penn State game Brian opined, "The play on which Donovan Warren was shoved into Junior Hemingway needs to be a penalty. As we saw, it's dangerous as hell. Kick catch interference should extend to people you're blocking into the returner."
Upon further review it was an unfortunate play, but neither inherently dangerous nor dirty, as some commented.
The FannMan said, "From where I was sitting (I only saw it live) it looked like a shove in the back that could only result in Hemmingway being hit in the knees."
However, the replay shows that Warren and Hemingway were at least TEN YARDS APART when our gunner (#1 A.J. Wallace) put his hands on Warren. It was neither inevitable nor likely that Warren would hit Hemingway and it strains credulity to believe that was Wallace's intent.
This was simply a gunner trying to get someone out of his way. Again, an unfortunate result, but hard to label it penalty-worthy.
