    ... for giving the Horns Down signal.


    My question: Why? As Travis pointed out, Screamin' A can get away with the N-word but Jesse Palmer has to cowtow to UT for a horns down. Why all this cowering and fear of an overrated program with an even more vastly overrated coach?

    Yo, Texas ... Here's one big horns down for your ass.

    ESPN isn't partners with the NAACP.

    Jesse's a Canuck. He didn't know any better

    Wouldn't horns down be udders?

    I'm guessing he won't appear on Bevo TV any time soon. I'm also guessing that at some point, it will be learned that Jesse Palmer won't return to ESPN for 2013.

    I kinda doubt they get rid of him over this. He's one of their rising stars among their college football analysts, in many ways being groomed as the next Herbstreit.
  9. Could someone refresh my memory ... Horns down means what?

    Can he apoligize to the viewers for lowering their collective IQ during Thursday night broadcasts?
