It was and it wasn't. I'd say that very play and Howard's pose was a "culture" changing moment. And it happened in Ann Arbor and the folks there didn't seem to mind so bad.
It's also ironic since that play and his "showboating" lead him to a Heisman Trophy win over arguably the classiest player of our generation. Who happened to play in the SEC.
And no, I largely don't see the culture differences that you refer to. I want to watch exciting football. I could care less if kids thump their chests or showboat a little, so long as they play hard, do some amount of work in the classroom and aren't criminals (which eliminates most programs).
Wait a minute, I'm talking myself out of liking college football altogether here.
