Georgia’s A.J. Green was flagged after celebrating this touchdown catch that put Georgia ahead of LSU late in the fourth quarter of their game Saturday. Green was flagged for an excessive celebration penalty, which gave LSU great field position on the ensuing kickoff for LSU’s Charles Scott to run down the field and score. Earlier today, the SEC said, “Our bad, yo.” You know, but in a real folksy way.
