This is not how referees should be inserting themselves into games.
Missouri and Missouri State were in a shootout during a noon opener on Saturday, with both teams scoring touchdowns all over the place. However, one of those touchdowns got called back for this absurd call for excessive celebration.
Really? Diving across the goal line is going to be a penalty that negates touchdowns? Come on, we don’t need that in football. Let the guys celebrate a bit, and if it really gets to be too much, then call the penalty. Just diving across the goal line? That’s not a penalty.
Missouri wound up with only a field goal out of the drive.
