Also by Eugene Gant: "Too Many Jigs In The End Zone." (Which is about touchdown dances.)

Continuing its race to the bottom with the National Felons League, college football has a new end-zone celebration: imitating a dog at a fire hydrant.
Amusingly, receiver Elijah Moore's obnoxious display cost Ole Miss the game against rival Mississippi State, known as the Egg Bowl, because excessive celebration get a 15-yard penalty. The kicker missed the extra point that would have tied the game.
After the game, the coach covered for Moore:
Elijah is a fine young man who lost control of his emotions in the moment. This incident does not reflect in any way the type of student-athletes on our football team or the culture of respect that permeates our locker room. Discipline is a staple of our program as evidenced by being the least penalized team in our league, and we will continue to uphold uncompromising standard of behavior on and off the field.
Yeah, right.
