OT: And so the unsportsmanlike conduct BS begins...
If they flag that they should flag CBs for getting in the face of the WR everytime the QB overthrows and the CB just happens to be within 5 yards of the play.
I could do without that.
Disagrees with you, dosleches.
Throwing a flag on him is a one-way ticket to Hell, buddy.
You're basically right. I'm watching the Utah game and the Ute defensive lineman celebrated a sack, quite obviously I might add, with no flag. I'm glad he didn't get flagged, but college football can be retarded when it comes to celebrations.
It all seems so stupid, I don't get why players celebrating is in anyway a problem.
That was a terrible call. I thought the exact same thing. It wasn't over the top at all.
1. i thought it was a little excessive (particularly when you're down 2 touchdowns).
2. i'm not sure that the flag was for the celebration...the refs called it on #18. the sack was by #99. i could certainly be wrong, however.
You are correct. The penalty was away from the sack on a different player. Not sure what exactly it entailed, but the celebration by #99 wasn't the flag.
Number 18 (a DB) was literally 30 yards away from the play. The ref was looking straight at 99 when he pulled the flag. Calling the wrong number is just one gaffe on top of another.
Maybe the celebration was in poor taste, if you say so, but that ain't unsportsmanlike conduct friend. I can't argue with your opinion on something that is 100% subjective. However, the rule says nothing about how close the game should be when you're celebrating.
flag on #99
flag on #18
I for one want to see some old school, da U style celebrating. This is a contact sport, not tennis let 'em go!
... about Marshall or OSU, or anything in that state (except the guy with the Michigan plate who has excess club level seats, I care about him) but thanks for posting that play. That made me happy.
I know--I loved this play so well. You can practically hear Graham saying "This one's for the Michigan State hockey team!"
That is exactly what I heard.
It's like Adam Carolla's new book title: "In Fifty Years, We'll all be Chicks"
What do they expect them to do, make a savage hit on somebody and sit down to drink tea?
I fail to see what's so wrong with celebrating a big play.
That one was a joke. If a guy's taunting an opponent, OK, flag him. But looking at the crowd?
call was justified, the guy ran across the field celebrating by himself.
Is this the "If Armando Allen is going to get pinged against Michigan, everyone else better get flagged" argument? :)
Listen, you can't hit a 2-time Heisman trophy winner like Pryor...wait, wait he HASN'T won the past two Heismans? But based on the preseason buzz and his "dismantling" of Oregon in the Rose Bowl, I just presumed that he was the greatest college player of all time and thus should be treated differently. Huh. And what is this game with all the guys tackling each other called? Football! Man, this televsion really does play tricks on people.
Compaining about all the Pryor hype is growing tiresome. He was a big-time recruit a couple years ago, and he's finally an upperclassman. It's only natural to have high expectations for him, and he's certainly shown flashes of brilliance...
I be all like damn
ahem, it's "I be like dang."
