Kansas State’s Adrian Hillburn scored a touchdown to bring the Wildcats within two. He salutes to the crowd and gets flagged for excessive celebration. The personal foul yardage gets tacked onto the two-point conversion attempt. Kansas State doesn’t convert. Syracuse wins 36-34. The excessive celebration rule should be reformed and objectified. It should acknowledge that human beings will react spontaneously in dramatic situations. It should distinguish between reasonable, benign celebrating and taunting. The standard should be recognized, transparent and universal. This was absurd.
