Oftentimes college football coaches are OK with their team taking certain kinds of penalties. We can only hope and pray that SMU head coach Chad Morris is OK with a couple unsportsmanlike conduct penalties for excessive celebration.
Morris, entering his third season as Mustangs' head coach, has the optimism flowing once again in Dallas. They went 5-7 last year and return a ton of talent, including defensive end Kenny Lawler and All-American receiver candidate Courtland Sutton. And if all goes well, those two could doing a lot of dunking and home-run hitting this season.
SMU has introduced two phenomenal celebrations during fall camp. When the defense gets a turnover, they dunk the ball into a Turnover Basket.

The offense needed something to match it. So they now they have the Home Run Bat, which Sutton used after making a spectacular touchdown catch. (He was called for offensive pass interference but no one cares.)
