This is the dumbest thing in college football not to come out of Lane Kiffin's mouth in a long time. The problem with excessive celebration penalties in college football isn't that they're too lenient -- it's that they're too strict. Essentially, a player who takes the burst of emotion after a big play too far is penalized the same as a player who attempts to hurt his opponent by grabbing his opponent's face mask and jerking it to the ground or by making a horse-collar tackle. That's absurd and just a touch short of morally bankrupt.
Now, the same people who brought us that brilliant idea want to make the excessive celebration foul even more stringent by enforcing in some cases as a live-ball foul? Really?!?
Excessive celebration should be a five- or maybe ten-yard flag. It should always be a dead-ball penalty. And the people involved in making the rules should really consider the virtues of allowing kids to play football instead of trying to turn the game into a tea party with shoulder pads.
