I see ppl bashing him on here but you have no Idea how it went down.. Geno waited a LOOONNNGG time then he responded.. RESPONDED.. Also he shot the bird at the guy who cursed him out..
I'll say this Geno avoided it as long as he could.. The guy heckled the hell out of him. Then he got a small crowd behind him. A "Texas Angel" "Cole Luke's family member" even left her seat next to me and sat by the guy. She asked him to tone it down. After a while she came back to her seat and told me," he's too belligerent".. Finally in the third Geno responded. Was just jawing at the guy. We scored, he looked at the guy and said watch this drive.. WVU TD. Would come back and jaw with the guy some more. Guy challenged Geno to a fight GS told him he'd kick his ass end zone to end zone. Guy called GS a Tampa, Fl St, Mia, FL, USF, and SEC reject.. Geno fumbled in the 4th and about 85% of the recruit section began yelling GENO- GENO...Even me lol... He was mad.. FERA missed FG and he turned and said , y'all MFs in trouble now.. Score WVU go up 10.. The entire offense comes over and gloats in our face.. From tongue sticking out to DX suck it, to the horns down. Trainers too... I didn't see a head set, so no cOaches... Buut they didn't stop it either.. Geno stood on bench and just stared at crowd. Players argued with Raulersons crew. Then drunk fan says Geno you pussy you wouldn't survive in Texas. GS replies F you and Texas. Throws up the blood sign and leaves.. It was funny really.
Brenhams next star Darrion Johnson Class of 2014
Also I have video of him arguing with fan.. I'll post around lunch
Thank you so much for this. A voice of reason from someone who was there is GREATLY appreciated when everyone else is running with a collection of exaggerations and fabrications. I'll get off your board now but we have a lot of pride in our football team and we sometimes take attacks/complaints very personally. It's hard to sit back and watch people spew hate about your players and fans. Good luck to you guys and I hope we move past this pretty quickly.
This has grown old very quickly. We lost, and barely lost at that honestly, to a great top 10 team with a Heisman trophy candidate. I just wish some of our own fans had a 24 hour rule themselves. I don't think GS reacted in the right or mature way but I also don't know if I could keep my cool and not retaliate after hours of being trashed by some random fans from the opposing team sitting right behind me. None-the-less I enjoyed the game and wish some of our fan base would move on. Its sour grapes and over and done with and the only way to rectify this is to destroy WV next year.
Our fan should have shut the hell up, and geno should have shown a little class and continued to ignore it.
Agree with the above poster that this story line is played out and it's time to move on.
He could and should have avoided it the entire game. Why does everybody deserve an excuse for their poor actions in this country. It's always somebody else fault. I would never have spoken to women and kids like he apparently did, even when I was a kid. Stop making excuses.
we lost...Geno won...gooners up next.
Trash talk from both sides....this happens in a lot of sports. Really time to move on. He will learn to ignore this otherwise he's going to have problems at the next level. Unless he intentionally threw something in the stands (football), this topic has really been exhausted imo. If we take care of our business the rest of the way on the field, we still have a shot to win it all. Time to get ready for blow u!
What is with all of the fan bitching about an opposing player's actions in the heat of the game? This board has a bunch of old babies on here running around and bawling about some meanie who beat up on their team. It's nauseating. The dreaded "class" condition comes in to play way too often around here.
There is no moral victory worth having.The guy kicked Texas in the teeth. That he did it while apparently mocking a bunch of fans and giving Manny Diaz an atomic wedgie should be enough to embarrass the whiners into silence, but all it seems to invoke here is more blind mewling against anyone who doesn't shit themselves and kneel at the altar of Mack like they're apparently supposed to do. Anyone complaining about Geno Smith's actions is utterly lost.

There are lots of sour grapes on this board, no doubt, but the notion that geno shouldn't have flicked off and cursed at our crowd isn't one that's "utterly lost." The people clinging to this as some sort of moral victory are absolutely taking it too far, but those of us that like to see people gracious in victory (and defeat) aren't misguided just because you say we are. Some of us still believe in sportsmanship.
He never addressed a woman or child. Geno went back and forth with the two grown men who heckled him.. Now the other teammates argued with recruits..
Gangsta. It was really gangsta.
Now that sounds like a good time.........LOL.
There is nothing more dangerous in this world than a man with nothing to lose.
Could you post a version translated into English at some point?
Without getting into the right/wrong aspect of it, you'd think when the score was 21-7 that the fan might have reassessed his strategy.
“Kansas may wind up number one in these polls, but that would be so unfair to Texas...” -- Len Elmore, 2/13/11
In my fantasies, the entire defense this weekend moons the OU fanbase inside the stadium after shutting them out and parading the RRR golden cowboy hat on each other's heads for the final 7 minutes of the blowout. I'd love to have some marauding badasses who lacked this board's definition of class as the tore the hearts out of opposing offenses. This is of course another indication of how bad a fan I must be, I guess. The Geno Smith stuff is whining nonsense, nothing else.
Funny mental image that produced.
I never said you were a bad fan, just insinuated that you don't value sportsmanship, which I'd say your post all but verified. Our fan base has gone wayyyy too far with this topic, but smith deserved to be called out for flicking off and cursing at a section of fans of all age groups and genders. We both know you're not so obtuse that you can't recognize how that might offend some people. No point in dwelling on this any longer, so I'll leave it at that.
We lost. They won. Geno screwed up. Some of our fans screwed up. It happens at every stadium pretty much every weekend. Time to put this too rest and move on.
I wasn't really directly addressing how you might view the post, versus the generality of "that guy is a bad fan!" that seems to waft through the spirit of this board on a frequent basis.
In truth, I value sportsmanship. If the guy flipped off the crowd or what have you, I'll consider him an asshole from here forward. And then I will move on. I don't root for cheaters, I don't like dirty play, and I get tired of the taunts and excessive celebrations. The reality is, this topic has crossed over from being about sportsmanship to being about enabling people to focus their frustrations on something meaningless as opposed to trying to understand what happened with the defense, the interior OL, or any myriad number of other things.
A lot of people spend a lot of time puffing their chests out about how classy they are or how classy their program is and that shit ends up being relatively meaningless. Win games without cheating, play clean, and look down in condescension on those who don't.
Great post, and couldn't agree more.
Here you go, Newy...
(apologies to Brenhamhorn if some of my translation is off)
I read posts on our beloved hookem.com board where posters were bashing Sir Geno Smith on here but those posters have no idea how it truly occurred. Geno waited a significant period of time after initially getting heckled to respond at all, and when he did, he responded quite vocally. He also shot the bird at the guy who cursed him out at some point during said heckling.
I will make the following contention, as I have alluded to before: Geno avoided it as long as he could. The perpetrator of the heckling had harassed him verbally in a continuous manner. The heckler soon had a small crowd form behind him. A "Texas Angel" that was accompanying Cole Luke's family even left her seat next to me to sit to speak with the heckler. After a legitimate lengthy attempt to speak reason to the heckler, she returned to her seat and informed me that he was "too belligerent".
Finally in the 3rd quarter of the game, Sir Geno Smith responded with vigor. As Geno and the heckler began their back and forth verbal lashing, Texas scored. When this happened, Geno looked at the guy and said "watch this drive!" The subsequent West Virginia drive resulted in a West Virginia TD.
Geno returned to the sideline after scoring a touchdown to partake in more verbal sparring with the heckler. Mr. Heckler challenged Geno Smith to a fight. Sir Geno Smith told replied passionately that he would "kick (Mr. Heckler's) ass from end zone to end zone. [Note: Black Shipley finds this particular part of the story absolutely freaking hilarious!]
After Mr. Heckler was put on notice by Geno Smith that his backside would be whooped from on side of the pitch to the other, he stated that Geno Smith was a "Tampa, Fl St, Mia, FL, USF, and SEC reject"..(which makes little sense because Mr. Eugene Smith was offered by all of the Florida schools, but I digress).
When Sir Geno Smith fumbled in the 4th quarter about 85% of the recruit section began yelling GENO- GENO...Even yours truly, Brenhamhorn, kinfolk of one Darrion Johnson joined in on the GENO chants.
Geno Smith was incensed.
After Anthony Fera missed the FG attempt, Geno Smith turned to Mr. Heckler and the accompanying crowd of recruits that had joined in on the GENO chant and said quite prophetically, "Y'all (lovers of females that hath given birth to a child) are in trouble now!"
Just as Geno said, West Virginia drove down the field and scored to go up by 10 points. At this point, the entire offense for West Virginia came over to that section of fans that had previously heckled Geno Smith and began to gloat in our faces. This gloating included sticking out their tongues, the heart-warming "Degeneration X" "suck it" move where a person takes both arms and crosses them in an X formation just above the pelvic region to suggest that the viewer of said "suck it" sign is encouraged to perform fellatio like a sooner (it's a World Westling Fake thing), as well as the horns down sign.
The West Virginia trainers took part in these childish actions as well, but I didn't see a head set, so none of the West Virginia coaches were involved, but they didn't stop it either. They were aware, but apparently didn't care, since the game was not over. Geno Smith stood on bench and just stared at crowd. The other West Virginia players argued with Jake Raulerson's crew.
Then a drunk fan states to Mr. Geno Smith that he is a vagina of the derogatory sort, and that he wouldn't survive in Texas. Geno Smith replies "Furk (subsititute c for r) you and Texas." Then Geno Smith threw up the blood sign as if the bloods could 'come and take it' and he left.
It was funny really. (Or gangsta).

I doubt you're doing your bronther any favors by publicly commentating on so many issues, including your opinion of his potential coaches at Texas.
But carry on. I'm certain you'll get positive feedback from many here and the other boards you post on.
I doubt he cares what you think. And I'm sure he'll carry on posting as he pleases unless the hookem staff has a problem with it. But that's just me.
I've never posted about a coach..
The thread I started that said "Fire manny????" Basically put it on the players making plays and not manny..
This Geno conversation is almost as annoying as the Ole Miss Marine. Let's talk about OU.
