We know the Oklahoma Sooners hate the Texas Longhorns, but this is ridiculous.
The hated rivals have a long history of riling each other up, with Oklahoma's "Boomer Sooner" chant and Texas' "Horns Up" gesture both equal parts of the fabric of college football. But as someone on Twitter pointed out, the "Horns Down" gesture--the antithesis to "Horns Up" and something Sooner fans love to troll the Longhorns with--is actually part of their logo.
And once you see it for the first time, you'll notice it every time you even glance at Oklahoma's logo from now on.

The Horns Down gesture is a sensitive issue for Texas fans, who've worked hard to stamp it out and went so far as to actually trying to get it banned from their games.
Well, good luck trying to ban Oklahoma's literal logo.
This is only going to add fuel to the fire that is the Red River Rivalry. And with the Sooners playing in the CFP after exacting their revenge on Texas in last week's Big 12 Championship game, Oklahoma fans have a lot of fuel to add.
Safe to say Oklahoma fans will use this every time they can, especially as they make a run at a National Championship. If Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray references Horns Down in a CFP game, the internet may just explode.
