07:43 AM ET 01.17 | On Thursday, Gabe Ikard tweeted that he'd "never buy something associated with UT." So how did the former Oklahoma center get his hands on a burnt orange Longhorns sticker to add -- upside down, of course -- to his East-West Shrine Game helmet? Former Texas defensive back Carrington Byndom hooked him up. Ikard and Byndom are teammates on the West team -- along with former OU running back Brennan Clay -- for Saturday's game in St. Petersburg, Fla. A little after noon Thursday, Ikard sent out a tweet with a picture of his helmet, to which he added an upside-down Longhorns sticker. After the picture went viral, the former Sooner clarified that Byndom had provided him with the sticker, which, naturally, upset some of the Texas faithful.

Upset some of the Texas faithful? Then those "Texas faithful" are nuts because that's what a land thief is supposed to do. And rusty cows are supposed to do the same to land thieves.

Sounds pretty normal to me.

pretty much. a giant "yawn" for me and about as offensive as saying TU or Sips or T-Sips. Who cares.

Well now, it's not going to help Ikard's dating prospects. What self-respecting woman is going to give any notice to a guy who clearly hasn't a clue about her anatomy?

Gabe's popular with the reporters. First, a blurb about getting his ashkabibble pushed around by a future pro stud NT, then anatomically confused helmet stickers. What's next?

About as long as you want it to last. :-)

If you lube the chain, air up the tires and keep the frame clean, can last 10-15 years easily.

The East West Shrine game is about as interesting as the Po Bowl.

This thread is a perfect example of what happens once the season is over.

Nothing good, with lots of redonkulousness tossed out by the suddenly-without-any-actual-material media.

Grow up, son.
