Texas coach Mack Brown drew some attention this week when in response to Longhorns receiver Mike Davis being penalized for mocking Texas Tech's "Guns Up" hand sign, he pointed out that Texas opponents mock the "Hook 'Em Horns" sign.
"The 'Horns Down' is disrespectful," Brown told reporters. "We ought to talk about that as a league."
No team turns "Hook 'Em Horns" upside down like Oklahoma. So as you might expect, Brown's comments drew return fire from Norman.
"Maybe that's the down side to having a one-handed hand signal," OU coach Bob Stoops said when asked about it after Wednesday's practice. "The bottom line is they don't seem to have a problem with it when they're doing well and they put it in everyone else's face. When they're not and someone else does it, you get it the other way. So be it."
