Florida State's 2018 sideline traditions went viral last year — but not for the best of reasons.

The Seminoles unveiled a tradition for whenever the defense forced a turnover. The turnover-forcing player got to wear what was deemed the 'turnover backpack'.

It was instantly deemed the worst celebratory prop in college football — maybe even in all of sports.

In FSU's 2019 season opener, another celebratory prop has been discovered. Except this time, the prop is only being used by a specific offensive player.

FSU receiver Tamorrion Terry, otherwise known as 'Scary Terry', made a big play in today's game against Boise State.

After taking a screen pass to the house for a 75-yard touchdown, Terry went straight to the sideline. Upon his arrival, the receiver was handed a mask which he proceeded to put on.

Apparently, the mask is known as the 'Scary Terry mask'. It looks as silly as it sounds.

Social media is blasting Florida State and Terry for the mask. A University of Miami fan-made account tweeted, "That moment when FSU proves that the Turnover Backpack was not the worst possible idea that they can come up with .... a Touchdown Mask?"

What do you think? Is the 'Scary Terry' mask as horrible as people are making it out to be?
