New College Football Rules

If you watch the Forcier TD against ND, you notice that before he gets to the end zone he stretches the ball out. Some may think he is just trying to cross the plane of the goal. Or, maybe he was celebrating early. Is that against the new rules?


  1. I think that would be under the juedgement of the officials. In my biased opinion, I don't think it is early celebration, but it would depend on the view of the official. Since we know they were against ND in that game, the out of bounds call, and letting the clock run out from 1 second etc. so I say TD!!!!

  2. That's my point. It seems like there will be a number of controversial calls/non-calls early in the season and they are going to have to tweak the rule. I don't think it was a big deal because it was celebrating, not taunting. Unfortunately, an official will have 5 seconds to make that decision. Not 12 replays and 6 months.
