It’s early, but the line of the day goes to Baylor head coach Art Briles, who is taking part in Big Twelve Media Days. 

Briles was asked his opinion on the new NCAA taunting rule, which everyone knows will be an utter failure.

This season, if a player taunts an opponent on his way to a touchdown, the play will be nullified. In other words, there's no room for salutes, flips, and high stepping. In short, no trying to pay homage to Deion.

So asked for his thoughts, Briles responded, "When Edwin Moses ran the hurdles, he wasn't low-stepping at the finish line."

FYI: The new rule will assess a penalty from the spot of the foul.

Our prediction: Kirk Herbstreit will lose it on on College Game Day a week after some officiating crew blows a ridiculously subjective call that costs a team a ball game. Herbstreits' rant will become a YouTube sensation. We're talking, Herbstreit will be seriously agitated and rip the NCAA. By the post-season, the NCAA will get rid of the penalty.
