Wing says he agrees that taunting is disrespectful. He says he simply spread his arms in celebration near the end of his 52-yard run against Florida on Saturday because he's never been anywhere near an end zone before.
Wing was the first player to be flagged under a new NCAA rule aimed at further curbing unsportsmanlike celebrations by disallowing touchdowns if the scoring player celebrates before crossing the goal line.
LSU won 41-11, which softened the blow. LSU coach Les Miles says he believes Wing was celebrating, not taunting, but that officials made the right call.
