No More Celebrating?

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) -- The NCAA football rules committee wants coaches to debate turning some dead-ball celebration penalties into live-ball fouls, which could result in taking points off the scoreboard.

Chairman Mike Bellotti, Oregon's coach, cautioned this was not yet a formal proposal and is not likely to take affect for at least two years.

The committee wants to gauge support among coaches. If the rule was eventually changed, players who begin taunting opponents before reaching the end zone could have those touchdowns called back.

The committee also suggested strengthening its sportsmanship statement. Under the recommendation, coaches could be disciplined by conferences or schools for repeated infractions that occur before, during and after games.
