Default College football bans messages on eye black; will deduct points for taunting in 2011

http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=5092774

Quote:
INDIANAPOLIS -- Eye black with messages and wedge blocks will be banned from college football this fall, and taunting in the field of play will start costing teams points in 2011.

On Thursday, the NCAA's playing rules oversight panel approved the three rules changes.

The eye black trend grew in popularity because of Heisman Trophy winners Reggie Bush and Tim Tebow.

Bush wrote "619" on his eye-black patches, in reference to the area code for his hometown near San Diego, and Tebow cited Bible passages, such as "John 3:16."

One year after the NFL banned wedge blocking on kickoffs because of safety concerns, the NCAA followed the lead. The new rule says that when the team receiving a kickoff has more than two players standing within 2 yards of one another, shoulder to shoulder, it will be assessed a 15-yard penalty -- even if there is no contact between the teams.

The reason: NCAA studies have shown that 20 percent of all injuries occurring on kickoffs result in concussions.
Quote:
But it's the taunting rule that likely will create the biggest buzz.

Currently, players who are penalized for taunting on their way to the end zone draw a 15-yard penalty on the extra point attempt, 2-point conversion attempt or the ensuing kickoff.

Beginning in 2011, live-ball penalties will be assessed from the spot of the foul and eliminate the score. Examples include players finishing touchdown runs by high-stepping into the end zone or pointing the ball toward an opponent.

Celebration penalties following a score will continue to be assessed on conversion attempts or the ensuing kickoff.


"I think one of the reasons it's been looked at is that when a penalty occurs on the field, it's normally taken from the spot," Teaff said. "This was the only occurrence that it wasn't taken from the spot, so they wanted to change that."




So basically if you catch a deep ball and start high stepping into the end zone beginning on the 8 yard line, the TD will be taken away and you will be given the ball on the 8 yard line. WTF is this pansy shit?

I really, really doubt that's the way the rule'll be written in the rulebook. There's no way they'll bring back a TD for something as simple as high-stepping. I assume it'll only be used for the most egregious cases, like Georgia's (I think) entire team running off the sideline to celebrate a few years ago.

I understand where there coming from with these messages to try to promote good sportsmanship but they really need to stop this shit. If a player goes like TO and does the stanky leg on the star then he should be suspended but in other cases no. If you score a TD the first thing you'll do is celebrate... These are college kids and the eye paint is so stupid.. Why would they care about them having a certain message on a eye black it doesn't give them a better playing field. these rules are retarded


if they want to fix CF, make a BCS playoff system

The taunting thing is stupid, but I understand the eye black stance. Eventually someone was going to put something controversial and it's much easier just to ban it then try to regulate what's allowed and what isn't.

My concern with the new taunting rule is how they execute it. If they just have refs blow the whistle on the spot you could have poor interpretation of an otherwise innocent gesture now take back TDs instead of just the 15 yarder (which sucks enough already). The rule should be enforced by booth review if they must have it.

Your putting even more decisions into the hands of part time officials, many of whom are pretty incompetent.
