Former OU star Gerald McCoy loses bet, sports Longhorn gear during NFL interviews

Posted October 22nd, 2015



Former Oklahoma defensive tackle Gerald McCoy looked miserable Thursday when he reported to work.

It seems that McCoy and Texas ex Henry Melton, now teammates for the Tampa Bay Bucs, made a friendly wager on the Longhorns-Sooners game.


McCoy lost the bet and was forced to don Texas gear Thursday. According to Tampa Times reporter Greg Auman, McCoy said “My skin is burning. I almost threw up this morning.”

As part of the bet, McCoy also had to flash the Hook Em sign and do some pushups. Melton posted about it on his Instagram account.
