No Celebrations At All (NCAA) Football



Just saw this story on The Big Lead.
The NCAA is pondering a dramatic rule change - one that wouldn’t take place until 2011 - wherein anyone who showboats in or around the end zone would have their score wiped out.
Are you fucking kidding me?

This is the stupidest god damned thing I have ever heard since, um, ever.

Exactly who does this rule benefit? Mike Belotti and the Oregon Ducks, apparently.
"College football is a team game and prolonged acts that draw attention to the individual are not consistent with that philosophy," said Bellotti, the Oregon head coach. "The rules committee reminds head coaches of their responsibility for the behavior of their players before and after, as well as during, the game ... Repeated occurrence of such unsportsmanlike behavior by a team may result in punitive action by the conference."

"We feel that there may need to be more ejections," Bellotti said during a conference call.
Oh, it's a good thing that the Oregon team in 2007 was able to stand strong as a team when Dennis Dixon went down with a torn ACL.

Chalk one more up for the pussy-fication of America.

...nevermind the fact that year-in and year-out there is some controversy over who gets to play in the championship game

let's make male college students, perhaps the most testosterone driven demographic on the planet, completely refrain from showing any emotion whatsoever when they score....yeah fucking right

paraphrasing jim rome...now florida v. florida state will be a no holds barred, triple OT, 3-0 slugfest...

and the peasants rejoiced...yaaaaay
