Flag-planting in Ann Arbor...ouch
There was much ado about the Spartans after they planted the Michigan State flag in South bend after dethroning the then-undefeated Fightin' Irish. Here's a painful shot of Minnesota's Laurence Maroney doing the same at midfield in the Big House after taking out the Wolverines.
ESPN guys were panning the practice, but I say let it go. This really hurt a UM fan like me to see, but the players certainly earn it. People are worried about injury? How about potentially thousands of kids ripping down a goal post?
Whiel I'm at it, the NCAA really needs to re-think the "excessive celebration" rule, without doubt the dumbest penalty ever created in sports. Don't get me wrong, I'm all in favor of banning the practice of crotch-grabbing and throat slashing, but let players celebrate achievement.
