Many observers thought the play that injured Hills should have been called a late hit against Winovich.
Refs missed a blatant late hit on Perry Hills, who's down on the field.

How is that not a late hit in Michigan-Maryland?

That should’ve been a late hit on Perry Hills. Maryland would be in a world of hurt without him. Can’t be one-dimensional vs. Michigan.
