Adrian Hilburn's Pinstripe Bowl salute, a play burned in the memories of Kansas State fans, has become a case study for interpreting college football's celebration rules.
The play, a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty assessed after the K-State receiver saluted the stands to celebrate a late touchdown, was projected to a packed ballroom Saturday at the Big 12 officiating clinic. K-State was forced to attempt a game-tying conversion from the 18-yard line, allowing Syracuse to escape with a 36-34 win.
The public backlash was swift and decisive, which encouraged the NCAA Football Rules Committee to revisit its interpretation of excessive celebration.
"That was the straw that broke the camel's back," said Walt Anderson, the Big 12's coordinator of officials. "The rules committee realized the pendulum had swung too far to the left and accepted the blame for forcing us to call some of those things."
Officials now are instructed to refrain from flagging spontaneous celebrations, reserving the penalties for premeditated or prolonged displays.

I can get around the house pretty well and have started rehab. I’m doing some push-ups, knee bends (which is the medical term for wimpy squats without any weight), and have been able to ride the stationary bike a little (for all you folks who think now is the time to finally beat me at something, you better hurry up cause I’m coming back strong, baby! :)
"I'm 100 percent committed ... right now," said Dunn, who rushed for more than 2,000 yards and 22 touchdowns as a junior.
Quick thought on the cowbells at MSU. Personally, I don't care either way.
But I fully support letting ALL SEC schools bring in noisemakers, if only to see how far they'll take it, as the Bama's and LSU's of the world tend to do. Seriously, think about it:
Vandy fans would bring in little New Year's Eve party favors to games, which would lead to Kentucky fans bringing in the blow up "thunder stix" type things. Then Sacerlina and Georgia would end up with a student section full of rocks in milk jugs.
Auburn fans would bring in vuvuzelas, making a State/Auburn game somehow even MORE painful to watch. Arkansas fans would all bring in bullhorns, but not yell, just play "La Cucaracha" over and over again. Florida, at some point, would end up having the student setting off black cats on third downs, which would lead to Tennessee fans blowing up meth labs in the stadium right before critical snaps. Alabama would get pissed off at everyone else, so of course they would take donations to hire F-16s and B-1s to do fly overs non-stop during the Iron Bowl.
And here's where I try to think of how LSU fans would top it all. I'm honestly frightened at what they'd do. There's no doubt it would evolve to letting live animals loose on the field, but I'm sure there would be more.
Oh, and Ole Miss fans would be the only ones in the SEC to be too drunk and pretentious to even care. They'd still sit on their hands and silently complain about Nutt calling a dive on 3rd and 12. Giggidy.
