NCAA keeps it a dull buzz in the endzone The NCAA keeps taking all the fun out of college football The latest attempt is a crackdown on prayer and showboating that draw individual attention What it means is that a player who crosses goal line after an 80yard touchdown run has to gather him self and quietly return to the side line No getting down on one knee to catch a breath No looking up into the sky and pointing No jumping around and soaking in the moment Keep it quiet and just get back to the bench The NCAAs intention is to cut down on individual ism and keep other players feelings from being hurt especially the defensive guys who just got burned and might still be nearby as the celebration happens The idea is not altogether bad Some players tend to get excessive in their endzone antics Taking off a hel met prancing around and moving in for a television close up takes away from the notion of sportsmanship Those players know who they are and should expect a flag The Miami Hurricanes are the masters of poor taste in that respect but for the most part players on the college level arent out to steal the glory from the rest of the team They have the NFL for that When you get down to it touchdown celebrations are generally harm less and more often than not it adds some spice to the game knowing that the guys behind the helmets are not robots Cutting down exhibitionism has its place in college football The problem however is that the rule requires a major judgement call on the officials part and it could penalize a team whose player simply let his emotions run away in the heat of the moment Let them live it a little Thomas Godley is sports editor for the Herald Zeitung Catching on HeraldZeitung photo by MICHAEL DARNALL The Canyon Cougars are getting a handle on

1974 Texas will start the season with a true freshman at running back Coach John Mackovic said Monday that Ricky Williams a 6foot 215pound fullback from San Diego will be in the starting lineup when the 18thranked Longhorns open the season Saturday night at Hawaii While other true freshman running backs have started games for UT none have started the season since Campbell who is the schools allume leading rush er Coaches say Williams a solid block er with good speed and hands has fully grasped the offense and may help Texas ignite a potent running attack lacking in recent years The Longhorns ranked 76th in rushing offense in 1994 Ricky has done everything we have asked of him and Mackovic said Mackovic says his team is healthy and ready to begin the season in a firstever meeting against the Rainbows who are also making their 1995 debut The only concern now is concentra tion said Mackovic adding that he pur posely failed to discuss his teams season opener during fall drills because he didnt want his players dreaming of beaches instead of blocks We didnt talk about it very much simply because we wanted our team to understand that this is an important first football game
