BYU Coach Criticizes Texas for “Horns Down” Gesture
BYU head coach, Mark Pope, expressed his disappointment after Texas players performed the controversial “horns down” gesture during their recent game against the UCF Knights. Pope stated, “That’s just not us. That’s not how we roll. Just a miscalculation on some eager kids…but it’s not what we do here.”
BYU Coach Calls Texas Players “Classless”
Following the incident, Pope criticized the Texas players, calling them “classless” for their actions. He stated, “When you do those kind of things, it looks very classless, and it also looks like you were just hoping to win. We never go into games trying to hope to win. We go into games expecting to win, so we don’t act like that.”
Texas Players Defended by Former Alabama Coach
Former Alabama head coach, Nick Saban, defended the Texas players and urged his own team not to engage in similar behavior. Saban stated, “We’re not doing this. Don’t do it. It’s not classy. We don’t need to degrade the other team’s traditions. Just go play.”
BYU Emerges Victorious
Despite the controversy, BYU had the last laugh as they secured a convincing win over Texas, with a final score of 84-72.
