OU NOTEBOOK: An issue of respect?

NORMAN — On Monday, Texas coach Mack Brown said players who flash the inverted Texas’ hook ‘em sign should receive penalties.

“The horns down is disrespectful,” Brown said at his weekly press conference on Monday. “We ought to talk about that as a league.”

Texas receiver Mike Davis received an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty last Saturday against Texas Tech for mocking the Red Raiders’ guns-up sign.

Brown made the comments after Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops’ press conference on Monday. OU defensive coordinator Mike Stoops weighed in after Monday’s practice.

“I’ve never done it, but I’m not going to hold it against my players. I think if I did it it would be a little immature and foolish,” the defensive coordinator said. “They’re just having fun. I don’t think they’re trying to disrespect anybody.”

OU defensive end R.J. Washington was less diplomatic.

“Sounds like Texas is whining like they’re always whining,” he said.

Tulsa Washington defender commits to OU: Tulsa Washington standout Dominique Alexander confirmed to several media outlets on Monday night that he has committed to OU.

Alexander, who is Rivals.com’s No. 4 player in the state, is projected as an outside linebacker/safety. The 6-foot-2, 195-pound senior had previously committed to Arkansas.

The Sooners now have 12 commitments for the 2013 class. All oral commitments are non-binding. Players cannot officially sign until Feb. 6.

Playing both ways: Bob Stoops said Geneo Grissom is working at both tight end and defensive end this season, but his future will be as a defensive end.

“He just moved back. We thought it was really gonna come together, and it just hasn’t,” Stoops said.

Grissom was used as backup defensive end against Iowa State. He spent the summer, preseason and first seven games working as tight end.
