Big 12 Coordinator of Officials Greg Burks made headlines on Thursday for his comments about the “horns down” gesture. It’s pretty apparent that former Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield doesn’t agree with Burks on this subject.
Burks told the media this week that players who use the “horns down” gesture in the direction of Texas players will be penalized.
“Lemme put it this way,” Burks said, via ESPN. “If you do a horns down to a Texas player as an opponent, that’s probably going to be a foul.”
Those comments didn’t sit well with Mayfield, who posted a few pictures of him doing the “horns down” sign on his Twitter account.
Mayfield also posted a hilarious message on social media, albeit Texas fans might not find it very funny.
“The following content might offend some viewers, the mentally week ones of course….#Boomer #ZebrasProtectingLonghorns,” Mayfield wrote.

It’s safe to say Mayfield isn’t a fan of Burks’ decision to penalize players who use the “horns down” sign. And judging by the college football world’s reaction on Thursday, he’s not the only one who feels this way.
“Horns down shouldn’t be a penalty,” ESPN NFL Draft analyst Matt Miller said. “It’s ridiculous that it is.”
We’ll see if the Big 12 officials stay true to their word when the Sooners takes on the Longhorns in the Red River Showdown later this year.
