A couple quick notes

Posted by Bob Condotta

Here is the official statement from referee Larry Farina on the penalty on Jake Locker at the end of the game:

"After scoring the touchdown, the player threw the ball into the air and we are required, by rule, to assess a 15-yard unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. It is a celebration rule that we are required to call. it was not a judgment call.''

The rule in question is Rule 9, Section 2, Article 1 of the rule book.

Section C of that rule states that "throwing the ball high into the air'' is an unsportsmanlike act.

Also, UW coach Tyrone Willingham said that the news appears good about Darin Harris and there is no sign of a neck injury with the major concern being a concussion.
