Baker Mayfield is no stranger to “drama” (used in quotes as most of it was silly things and not actual drama) surrounding him in college. While he has not had anything similar at the NFL level with the Cleveland Browns, he stepped foot back into his college roots this week.

The Big 12 recently came out with a new rule to try to stop players from using the “Horns Down” gesture toward the Texas Longhorns. That gesture has been used to mock Texas’ “Hook ’em Horns” gesture for years.

Recently it has been penalized as taunting but, as discussed on Sooners Wire, it will be a point of emphasis going into the upcoming season.

Teams will be penalized for doing so toward a Texas player but might not be if doing toward the crowd.

Mayfield jumped into the subject matter with a tweet that shares his, trolling, thoughts on the matter:

Mayfield is always passionate, especially about his college team. It will be interesting if any Longhorns playing in NFL respond to Mayfield. Texas has struggled recently with only a few starters at the pro level at this point.

Perhaps Mayfield’s AFC North rival DeShon Elliott will take up the cause and respond. Either way, it is not shocking for Mayfield to share his thoughts on the Big 12’s new rule.
