    Lincoln Riley pledges no ‘Horns Down’ gestures from No. 6 OU vs. No. 11 Texas


    As anyone who’s ever been around a child or a dog knows, the surest way to get them to obsess over an item or action they want is to it it away from them.

    Turns out, that works for college football fans as well.

    Last year’s Big 12 football season was highlighted by Kyler Murray‘s Heisman Trophy run, Texas’s long-awaited resurgence, a high-flying West Virginia offense and the Big 12’s official outlawing of the “Horns Down” gesture. The storyline reached its zenith ahead of the Big 12 Championship, a Red River rematch that saw every Oklahoma fan defiantly point their pointer and pinky fingers toward the floor for the entire drive from Norman to Arlington, then saw the team finally join in after OU won the game.

    With the Cotton Bowl edition of the Red River game set to arrive on Saturday (noon ET, Fox), Lincoln Riley pledged his team won’t throw their horns down, at least during the game.

    “Our players won’t do it. Just like the Big 12 (championship) game,” Riley told the Tulsa World.

    Regardless of how you feel the Big 12 classifying what has long been an accepted gesture now worthy of a 15-yard taunting penalty, this is smart football by Riley. Oklahoma racks up plenty of penalty yardage over the course of a typical game (90.4 yards per game, second most nationally), so they don’t need to go looking for 15-yard flags.

    The fans, though, that’s another story.

    Saw ESPiN FPI only gives App State a 35.8% chance to win. Realizing just how unerringly accurate the FPI is I immediately put down a BP bet on App State. Should be free money.

    I think the Illini need to go back to their roots, remember that they had an Native American mascot for decades and go bury a tomahawk in someone’s fucking skull.

    I mean, what do they have to lose?

    Since the FPI is formulated by throwing darts against a dartboard, the only people who give it credence are ESPiN employees.

    I’m here for Wake Forest fucking some shit up in the ACC. Seriously, 5-0 ranked 19th and no one cares (why should they). But hey, they’ll likely beat Lousiville and should be favored against NCST. FSU isn’t good at all and VT is pretty pedestrian.

    It might seriously get weird.
