Tonight, the Oregon Ducks sent the Texas Longhorns packing in the Alamo Bowl, cruising to a 30-7 win in a game in which they dominated both sides of the ball. It was a disappointing ending to the wonderful Texas career of Mack Brown, as he will not return as head coach in 2014.
After the game, Oregon sophomore wide receiver B.J. Kelley took to Twitter to gloat a bit about the win — he threw the “horns down” sign — a gesture that Mack Brown has said numerous times in the past that he finds very disrespectful:
Obviously Kelley is taking a shot at Texas, but it was likely not meant to be truly malicious. After all, the Ducks clearly took the Longhorns seriously in their bowl preparation, and it showed tonight.
