    Sir, step away from the toolbox!
    "Oh no, Biff!"
    "I say, Buffy!"

    The Harvard football player ran into the end zone with the ball but, no touchdown.
    It was ruled unsportsmanlike conduct because he apparently came down the field giving a middle finger to the Yale players who were running after him.
    Harvard wound up winning Saturday's game anyway, 45 - 27.


    Harvard has touchdown called back against Yale after running back's obscene gesture
    Harvard running back Devin Darrington...charged up the middle for a 27-yard score in the fourth quarter...but as he raced toward the goal line he appeared to flip off the chasing Yale defenders.
    Instead of adding another score, the play was called back for unsportsmanlike conduct, and ultimately the Crimson had to settle for a field goal...
    Harvard coach Tim Murphy, who is now 18-7 in the rivalry, came down hard on his player following the win.
    "The bottom line is: He was wrong," Murphy said.
    "He was wrong. It's that simple. It was the right call; he was wrong. I'm just so grateful to our team that he didn't have to learn that the absolute hard way of trying to live with that for a year or however many years."

    Still photo proved it was a bogus call. He had his index finger up, not his middle.

    In the Harvard vs Yale game, showing your #1 is the same as the middle finger is certainly unsportsmanlike conduct.

    Doesn't really matter which finger he used, the penalty was for "taunting"
