Missouri QB Drew Lock responds to Tom Herman’s alleged taunt

Posted December 28th, 2017


UPDATE: Here is the video that allegedly started this exchange:

As a winning season neared for Tom Herman, the first-year coach was caught on the sideline apparently mocking Missouri quarterback Drew Lock.

After Texas jumped out to an early 21-7 lead, Lock seemed to make a gesture after throwing a touchdown pass in the first half when Missouri looked to make a comeback.

Herman seemed to respond later with a gesture of his own.

Whether it was an actual taunt or not, Lock didn’t seem to mind Herman’s action.

In fact, he would’ve loved it if his coach did the same thing, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch’s Dave Matter.

Texas, of course, won 33-16 over Missouri in the Academy Sports + Outdoors Texas Bowl. The victory secured Texas’ first winning season since Mack Brown’s last season as the Longhorns head coach in 2013. It also marked the team’s first bowl win since the Horns’ 2012 Alamo Bowl win over Oregon State.
