One more entry to be filed under “college football officiating madness” (or “college football thought police”) for the 2014 season:
Shaw says it's a penalty if player uses celebration he "worked on in hotel room night before." Towel theft touchdown dance, someone, please

You can’t make this stuff up.
Hopefully, players will find creative ways to make the end zone a hotel of happiness… but not lead officials to litter their “hotel rooms” with more laundry. The potential for comedy is great. Unfortunately, so is the potential for that 15-yard penalty after a touchdown with 1:12 left in regulation which gives the other team a much better chance of kicking a tying field goal, shrouding a game in controversy.
