Mack Brown says the ‘horns down’ gesture is disrespectful Texas coach Mack Brown is tired of people being mean to the Longhorns and he wants the Big 12 to do something about it. Brown, who's done a lot of complaining this season, says the upside-down Longhorns hand gesture is offensive and that it shouldn't be allowed. "The horns down is disrespectful," Brown said Monday. "We ought to talk about that as a league." Brown would also like you kids to get off his lawn. Texas athletics and its supporters throw up their pinky and forefinger to make the horns of a longhorn as part of its tradition. However, opponents have been turning the hand gesture upside-down as an opposing symbol. The former Big 12 South — Texas, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and Baylor — are big fans of hand gestures for their respective teams and opponents often mock those gestures. It's part of the competitiveness of the game. http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/ncaaf...n-gesture-disrespectful-214143148--ncaaf.html Wow....embarrassing for a coach to raise this issue after being there so long. It is almost like he wants folks to focus on something else, besides the win loss and his job performance. Oi! Big Weenie !!
