    I mean it's taunting. I don't care either way if they throw a flag unless the player does it in the face of a Texas player or to Texas' sideline...but those two scenarios are obvious.

    If one of our players gives the double middle finger to your fans is that taunting? Same thing.

    I think it's how it's done. If you just throw it up in the air, no big deal. If you do it in someone's face, then yeah, that's taunting.

    It's widely known that it's a sign of disrespect. It's also the least original dis in college football. If your bag of taunts is so limited that you resort to the horns down, well, you just aren't doing it right..... on any level.

    It makes players and fans look like tools when they do the Horns down. Come up with something original on your own. A two-year old can do the Horns down. I'm glad that the WV player got flagged for doing what he did. Karma.

    Players have gotten flagged for guns down (Tech) and thumbs down (aggy). No different. If it’s a taunt, it should be flagged.

    We're just getting everyone used to throwing the yellow hanky so the next time we play you Sooners, your whole team & fanbase will be DQ'd!

    Forfeit due to lack of eligible players

    Back in the early 90's the students were placed behind the opposing band at DKR for football games. The band would turn around and do the horns down to us and well that would not go over well and it was not smart. I remember all kinds of things being thrown on the opposing band AFTER the gestures were given. It ranged from stale bourbon and coke, to pocket change, to well anything taken into the game that would fit in one's pocket-boot.

    Shouldn’t be flagged. Shouldn’t have let that mf’er gash you. It’s disrespectful but so what? Make the cat pay if you don’t like it (hello defense). Just my opinion. Whining about it is soft.

    Actually, he understands. I would have loved to see the fans litter all kinds of crap onto those guys. In other stadiums it ranges from batteries to urine bombs. That will teach'em.

    What does this have to do with his post?

    Taunting is taunting. It is a penalty. Personally I don't care either way, but if it is deemed illegal then call it.

    Note to self: talk with team before next trip to Austin about how Texas fans are pussies who get offended by a hand gesture.

    Note to self: when realigning conferences in 2025, leave the white trash hillbillies at the curb.
