Bear vs. Cow, Part 2: The Curse of Shawn Bell's Premature Hand Gesture

Thanks to our Oso Amigo (we'll always have Stillwater) Andrew Wiseman over at Colonial Hoops for alerting us to this pathetic news item from the Sporting News. Apparently, Texas is digging deep for motivation for tomorrow's game and has settled upon Shawn Bell's now-infamous "Horns Down/Saw 'em off" hand gesture, following a first-play-of-the-game 80-yard TD strike to Trent Shelton. While we did score more points on Texas that game that any other team had prior during the 2006 season, perhaps Bell's enthusiasm was a bit premature. Maybe he was just celebrating the fact that GuyMo gave him the starting spot over kleptomaniac and part-time tight end Terrance Parks, whose performance against UT the previous year was a special kind of ass-whoopin'.

"Surely, such taunting will intimidate the 'Horns."

Will the ShortHorns truly use Bell's disrespectful hand signal as a motivational tool to defeat the worst team in the Big12? Do they really need motivation? Is it possible that we could "fall on our sword" and forfeit the rest of the season rather than face certain shame, humiliation and emasculation? In case you'd like a recap of the miraculous 1st Quarter from last year's game, here is the youtube of the finest quarter of Baylor-Texas football since 1997.

  • I'll be there tomorrow throwing the horns and sic'ing 'em with two bottles of rebel yell fools.

    Any word if they're going to have tryouts for QB before the game?

  • B. Meat,

    Appreciate the gallows humor. One day, if the Lord tarries long enough, the goal posts will come down again.

    But not tomorrow.

  • When does Samairi Mike start?

  • BDP - you could definitely take a few snaps for old BU.

    Samurai Mike has been crashing at the ALICO and working up most of his offensive plays based on the D-Day Invasion of Normandy. Similarly, most of his defensive plays are based on the heroic defense of the Alamo.

    He doesn't drink much and demands we join him in prayer every 15 minutes, but other than that, we're honored to be in the presence of a Baylor legend.
