This Is The Worst Call You Will See All Bowl Season (Video)
Will someone please do something about these “excessive celebration” calls in the game of football? I mean, since when did a salute to the crowd become excessive? The answer to that question may very well be during the Pinstripe Bowl on December 30th, 2010.
After hauling in a 30-yard touchdown pass to bring his team within two of Syracuse with only 1:13 remaining in regulation, Delone Carter and his Kansas State Wildcats were only a two-point conversion away from tying things up and possibly sending this game into overtime. However, one simple salute to the crowd would essentially dash those hopes, as it set the Wildcats back 15-yards for their convert attempt. One incomplete pass later and the Orange had themselves a 36-34 Pinstripe Bowl victory.
So was a simple salute really worth a 15-yard penalty at this juncture of the game? I’ll let you be the judge of that.
