The NCAA is thinking about instituting a new no taunting rule. The new rule would basically turn some taunting calls from dead-ball fouls into live-ball fouls, meaning, if player A taunts Player B while headed into the endzone the TD could be called back.
Orson hates it because, well, it is retarded.
I hate it because it should be completely unnecessary.
Look, taunting happens when young men meet in the crucible of college football. But is taunting such a scourge upon the sport that we need to ramp up the rules even more? I mean, if you taunt another player you will already be penalized but now we want to take points off the board?
I will say, I don't think this will impact PSU that much. I'm not saying that PSU doesn't do any taunting, however, I think that when it does occur the offending player finds himself in Joe's doghouse for at least the rest of the game. A penalty is bad, however, the way to affect the players is to take away their playing time.
Success with Honor!
