Shifting blame for Cowboys' excessive celebration

Miles Austin is taking a lot of heat for drawing an excessive celebration flag after leap-frogging Roy Williams this past Sunday. And the receiver is accepting full responsibility (he stood up apologized to teammates this week).

But as it turns out, Austin wasn’t the one who drew the flag. The penalty was actually on Sam Hurd for joining Williams in the Hook ‘em Horns gesture. That classified as a “choreographed celebration”, which is what the league has banned.

This makes sense if you consider that Austin’s leapfrog is not much different from players jumping and bumping in midair (how in the world did that silly trend get started, anyway?). What doesn’t make sense is why Hurd was giving the Hook ‘em Horns. The guy went to Northern Illinois. Granted, he grew up in San Antonio, but San Antonio is not Austin.

"Choreographed"?  Yeah, right, sure.  Because he made the same hand sign as Roy Williams.

San Antonio may not be Austin, but lots of people from Texas are fans of the UT Longhorns.  It's not as strange as it might seem at first glance.
