    political correctness run amuck?

    This has just gone to far, even for the NCAA.

    Just wondering what everyone else thinks about these crazy rules.

    Guess the NCAA is trying to be the, "No Celebration Allow Anywhere" league, like the "No Fun League", at least in respect to it's "no taunting or we'll remove the TD" rule. Just crazy & I didn't realize that it was ruining my enjoyment of the game. But, maybe the new breed of youth just can't take any type of mocking whatsoever & everyone's feelings were getting hurt. Who knows what their thinking was with a rule like that..

    As for the eye black, meh.. they'll just figure out some other way to get it out there. Maybe breath-rite strips will come back in style w/colors or words on them (but guess that might have already been outlawed).

    I know i'll be annoyed if either one of those comes in play against my team, costing them in the end..

    My take is, it will last one year. This is such a subjective ruling by the refs and after one year of the refs costing games for teams, there will be such an uproar that it will go away.
