Clemson linebacker James Skalski was ejected in the National Championship against LSU when he collided with LSU wide receiver Justin Jefferson on a play over the middle.

Naturally, this caused everyone with even a passing interest in Clemson football was up in arms, as they sharpened their pitchforks to attack the NCAA's targeting rule that results in an automatic ejection.

These Tigers fans must have amnesia, because they seemed awfully quiet when Ohio State cornerback Shaun Wade was ejected just weeks ago for a hit on Trevor Lawrence. Jeff Okudah is having none of that.

Wade's hit brought up all of the same talking points about the NCAA's ridiculous targeting rule. The diehards in South Carolina seem to think that's totally different than Skalski's hit, when they're almost exactly the same play.

Apparently the targeting rule is now the worst thing in the world in Clemson, just weeks after the most recent controversial play was "called to the letter of the law."

How convenient.
