There's no truth to the rumour that from the start of the 2011 season, all college football players will have to have an immaculate high school record and universities will be fined if a football player misses a team meeting from the death of his grandmother. There's also no truth that every game will now have the NCAA logo with the slogan "Big Brother Is Watching You," either.
While we can understand the wedge blocking rule we don't want anyone to get injured or killed out there but the eye makeup? Really? What difference does it truly make? Is it going to change the world?
And don't get me onto the taunting. The VFA was at the Georgia-LSU game in 2010 in Sanford Stadium for one of the biggest piece-of-crap calls in NCAA history, involving AJ Green, a great touchdown catch and a celebration that was called "taunting." It eventually cost Georgia the game.
First of all, what is considered taunting? Is diving over a defender considered taunting if the wide receiver is the size of PSU giant receiver Derek Moye and the cornerback could star as 'Grumpy' in Snow White & Seven Dwarves? Is celebrating in an end zone taunting? If so, then every player in college football is dead.
Secondly, how is it going to be reinforced? Which school is going to be made an example of? Will Ohio State get a flag in the Horseshoe, Florida in the Swamp or LSU in Death Valley? Or will away schools be punished because the home fans bitch and moan about a decision?
Thanks, NCAA, you've taken just a little bit more fun out of a fun game. That's what college football is, right? Fun?
