NCAA rules committee firms up sportsmanship rules

The NCAA rules committee held its annual meeting the last three days, and among the key topics it discussed was celebration penalties, which gained a lot of attention last season after what happened with UW and Jake Locker against BYU.
Here’s the official release from the NCAA and while it seems to indicate that if anything, the NCAA will be more strict in enforcement of such penalties, also debating making them “live ball” penalties (which wouldn’t have impacted the Locker play since his happened after he scored).
Here’s an initial AP story about the meetings (and I’m sure you’ll note who the committee chair is this year). There may be more stories later that have more detail on what the committee did, possibly addressing the Locker play, so if I see those I’ll pass them along.
