    Yeah, let's see that no-TD rule enforced in the last minute of a big game.

    Yeah, that's a rule that has a very broad interpretation. But teams have a year to get ready for it.

    Unfortunate typo there. But probably accurate considering it may be 2024 before UGA wins the SEC again.

    The ESPN story cites "examples including" (although they don't specify whose examples) "high-stepping into the end zone."

    Which fat old white man gets to decide how high you can lift your feet off the ground before it constitutes "high-stepping into the end zone?"

    the new penalty should be a rant from Head Coach Mark Mangino

    High stepping doesn't refer just to the act of lifting your legs high when you are running. There's a pretty distinct difference between running into the end zone and taunting version of "high stepping" into it.

    Glad to see the NCAA has all its other problems under control.

    The racial and social undertones of this rule are pretty obvious. Act really white, but don't put any religious messages on your eye black. That's TOO white.

    I at first read the first part of the thread title as "NCAA Blocks Wedgies."

    I was gonna say, about time they blocked a 30-year-old hazing activity.
