|Kansas State's Adrian Hilburn, right, was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct after scoring this touchdown against Syracuse.|
"By rule, it is a penalty. You have to call it. But there are definitely situations where ... I guess the best way to put it is that you just don't see it. Get busy bringing the new ball in and getting set for the extra point. If you don't make the call, the complaining lasts about five minutes from only one sideline. Make that call and you end up leading 'SportsCenter' all night. But again, the rule is the rule and that is a penalty, so you can understand why it was thrown. And there were two flags thrown, not just one. And they came out simultaneously, not one in reaction to the other. So the call was pretty adamant."
"If it's a throat slash or the guy starts break-dancing, like something we've seen Chad Ochocinco or Terrell Owens do, then it's unavoidable. But something like a salute or just standing there with his hands on his hips, it leaves the window open to warn the kid not to do it again and move on."
