Sports Illustrated appears to troll Texas on social media
The 2021 Preseason Coaches Poll, released Tuesday, has the college football world talking.
On Tuesday evening, Sports Illustrated tweeted a graphic of the poll’s Top 25 with a curious decision. On SI’s tweeted graphic, No. 19 Texas stands out for going “Horns Down” by flipping the Longhorns’ logo upside down.

Who’s ranked too high?
Who’s ranked too low?

Either someone in Sports Illustrated’s graphics department made a mistake or decided to troll the Longhorns. Either way, SI can expect a penalty flag from the Big 12 for going “Horns Down” in the tweet.
As of publishing time, the tweet is still up.
