    NCAA Mulls Tougher Taunting Penalties

    Per ESPN

    NCAA football rules committee floats harsher penalties for player celebrations - ESPN

    Don't know what to think of this. On one hand it is good and eliminates the Reggie Bush diving for the end zone taunts. Then again the refs were dumb enough to penalize Jake Locker for his "celebration".

    All that matters is that this will screw ISU someway. No sarcasm pirate either.

    I've always been ok with the NCAA having stricter standards for taunting since these kids are playing for the game and their school. Plus the NCAA is supposed to be preaching teamwork and sportsmanship.

    The NFL has went way overboard in their enforcement of the rule and I'm afraid now the NCAA will basically take any emotion out of a celebration. Even to the point that teammates celebrating together will garner a flag.

    Re: NCAA Mulls Tougher Taunting Penalties

    I guess I see this thing turning into a "if you don't toss the ball straight to a ref upon entering the endzone and then directly proceed to the sideline without gesturing at anyone and then when you get to the sideline you had better stand there without emotion like the good boy that we all know that you can be, then we'll penalize your team for 15 yards." Wow - nothing like sucking emotion and momentum out of a football game...
