Missouri Gets 75-Yard TD Called Back For ‘Excessive Celebration’

|

While the NFL is loosening up on their rules for celebrations on touchdowns, the NCAA appears to have picked up the slack. Following a long run that resulted in a touchdown for Missouri, it was called back for excessive celebration.

There were no flags on the field until the instant that Damarea Crockett crossed the goal line.

Judge for yourself whether his celebration crossed the line of what is acceptable.

There was no hesitation on the part of the referee to throw the flag. It does come as a bit of a surprise considering diving across the goal line is a mild way to celebrate a touchdown.

The penalty hurts Missouri in a game that is far closer than they expected.

Playing the inferior Missouri State Bears, the Tigers have been gouged for 43 points. They’ve managed to open the lead up to 22 points in the fourth quarter, but it doesn’t bode well for their defense moving forward.
