No, we’re not kidding. After running into the end zone for a four-yard touchdown in the second quarter of this afternoon’s game, Thompson-Robinson signed a fan’s UCLA cap.
It was a pretty awesome gesture from Thompson-Robinson, but it did result in an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
Fox Sports broadcasters Joe Davis and Brock Huard laughed after seeing the replay. Although the refs penalized Thompson-Robinson for signing an autograph, Huard said it was “well worth it.”
