Video: Referee instructs Ole Miss to stop landshark gesture
Just a week after ESPN’s College GameDay dedicated an entire segment to the landshark sign used by the Ole Miss defense (see below), a referee has instructed the Rebels they are no longer allowed to use the move when on the field.
Considering the sign was not only a large part of the Rebels defensive identity, but also a way to honor the memory and mentality of former Rebel Tony Fein, this new decision shouldn’t be taken lightly.
You can learn more about the origin of the landshark sign by watching the video below. Do you consider the move “excessive celebration?”
