NCAA football considering harsher celebration penalities

reggie bush.jpgIn news that will surely delight old-school football fans and wreck havoc on taunting your opponent in football video games, the NCAA is considering a rule change that would impose harsher penalties on celebration.

Currently, post-touchdown celebrations are assessed as dead-ball fouls. Under the proposed change, these would become live-ball penalties if the scoring player began taunting before reaching the end zone.

This is not a formal proposal and wouldn't take effect for at least two years, rules chairman Mike Bellotti said.
I would think this change would be met with some skepticism. Can you imagine points being taken off the scoreboard just because the scorer began high-stepping at the 10-yard line?

It'd be madness.
