If NCAA excessive celebration rules are applied, Wisconsin or LSU players could be penalized for attempting a Lambeau Leap on Saturday.
Under Rule 9, Section 2, which addresses unsportsmanlike conduct fouls, of the 2016 and 2017 NCAA Rules and Interpretations, the rules prohibit, “Any delayed, excessive, prolonged or choreographed act by which a player (or players) attempts to focus attention upon himself (or themselves).” The rules also prohibit, “Going into the stands to interact with spectators, or bowing at the waist after a good play.”
According to rules, a player is supposed to give the ball to the official or leave the ball near the dead-ball spot to avoid a 15-yard penalty.
Adams, seemingly without knowing the rules, said he would like to attempt a Lambeau Leap if given the opportunity but said he has not spoken to coach Les Miles about it. He’s also hoping Wisconsin fans wouldn’t reject him if he tried to do so.
“I sure hope not, honestly,” Adams said. “Hopefully, I can just jump high enough just to get up there.”
Fournette, however, has no interest in the celebration.
“Nah, I ain’t trying to leap,” Fournette said.
