take a minute to read this terrific post at Black Shoe Diaries.
Note that it’s from last season. Did it give the NCAA any pause for thought? Not if you recall this little tidbit that got tossed out a couple of months ago:
… The NCAA’s football rules committee, meanwhile, is weighing its own sportsmanship-related measure. Taunts or showboating by players in mid-play — for instance, as a ball carrier is five or 10 yards from crossing the goal line — could be treated as live-ball rather than dead-ball fouls, potentially wiping out scores in the same way holding and clipping do.
The panel considered the change for the coming season and passed, but will look at the issue again next year, say its secretary and rules editor, Rogers Redding.
Could you imagine the uproar if something like Green’s TD were reversed over a call like that?
These guys are threatening to cross over from the realm of the merely stubborn to that of the truly insane.
