    I-State hand gesture idea...

    I know there was a thread a while back that suggested we should have a school hand gesture to compete with those like Texas' hook 'em horns, aTm's "gig 'em", and TT's six guns.

    An idea for one just popped into my head but unfortunately it already has some solid and not so polite symbolism already...

    The look of our new I-State logo matches pretty nicely to the "middle finger salute." I'm imagining one of those big foam hand/fingers thngs in a cardinal color with yellow letters starting on the thumb with an "S" to the little finger with an "E" (in our logo typeface) - then the outstreatched middle finger would nicely emulate the big cardinal "I".

    It's probably a bit crude to consider seriously but it's a funny thought.

    But maybe one of you creative guys can whip up a graphic that would demonstrate it.

    I thank god every day I wasn't born a Tech fan so I don't have to pretend the gun's up thing is cool, because it totally isn't.

    Agreed

    My hand gesture is bringing a can of grain belt close to my face so I can drink it.

    bad idea. My wife's an aggie and I still don't get how a thumb's up can mean "gig em." And "putting your guns" up makes me laugh at Tech fan's every time. So lame.

    Hand gestures are gay. Don't believe me?? Look no further than TCU...or tech. Texas might be the ONLY exception because they are Texas and they do what they want.

    I'd say Miami and Texas are the exceptions.

    No hand gesture is more idiotic/lame than this...

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZmNycGPngUQ&feature=related]YouTube - ‪Chuck Norris leads a Sic'em‬‎[/ame]

    Sic 'Em Bears is so lame, even Chuck Norris can't make it look cool.


    In 1984, I was hospitalized for approaching perfection.
