Mizzou TD taken away for excessive celebration after RB dives into end zone
Army Of One
Not nearly as bad as the NFL celebrations.
Wow...i think they should have called the play off once he broke free...cause that's not fair to the other team who couldnt catch him for tackle. A 75yd td run is a over excessive play, it taunts the other team their lack in defense
How can you take a legit touchdown away, celebration or not?
He hurt the other teams feelings. Awe, poor team.
Stupid, absolutely stupid on the part of the refs. I thought we were finally moving past the participation trophy mindset. A rule that subjective has no place in the rule book. Don't want to be embarrassed, stop him and you don't have to worry about looking ridiculous without referees having to play mommy for you. I would understand if he stood over a defender and spiked the ball into the defender's chest.
What the video clip doesn't show is that he broke one tackle at the 15, had another defender cutting his angle, and didn't know how close he was to being caught from behind. There's a BIG difference between showboating and just trying to get in the end zone to cap off a 75 yard run.
Really? C'Mon man!
There was nothing excessive about a dive into the end zone. #$%$ call by the refs. Let them have a little fun and stop trying ruin the game
This ref certainly had another agenda. No way could he have made such a crazy call to take the points away based on what we have seen.
I don't see anything wrong with what the kid did. Now if he would have pointed or started yelling at the opposing team I could see it but a dive?
