    I don't like that type of behavior. There's no need to talk trash and rub it in the guy's face, because the next play he could out jump you and get the INT and you're there sitting their holding your j*ck.

    Act like you've been there.

    oh boo hoo. Make a good play and talk your sh*t. But you better be ready to do it again next play. That's what I tell my guys

    Well I disagree with your approach. What good does it do to talk shite??? I guess your generation doesn't teach sportsmanship these days!

    In case you're wondering Kirby doesn't like Pickens getting emotionally out of control either. Such behavior cost him the first half of the SEC Championship game. Not smart.

    You can justify trash talk anyway you want, but sportsmanship is part of the greater lesson of sports. You'd do well to remember that life lesson.

    Randy moss , Ocho cinco , Ab , TO , Odell , all great players with big personalities and yes the wideout position is full of players like this . There only so any Michael Thomas players or Reggie Wayne’s or Marvin Harrison’s. Comes with the territory . Steve Smith one of my favorite wide outs of all time was the best trash talker out there and my favorite player because he played way bigger than his 5’9 stature . Always attacking and high pointing the ball.

    I think once we've reached the level of SEC football and beyond, sportsmanship takes a major backseat to being talented and producing on the field. I will absolutely teach my kids sportsmanship because I think it's an important quality; but if my kid grows up to score the winning TD against Florida in 2040 and spikes the ball in a gators face I'm going to be thrilled. If they did that in Pee Wee league they'd run laps and come home with a sore ass.

    Let your good play do the talking.

    Arguably the greatest player in college football history, Herschel Walker, did not spike the ball, dance around or trash talk other players.  I was sitting in the student section in 1980 vs. USCjr when he swept right and blew by 3 players with a potential angle to cut him.  All he wanted to do was hand the ball to the ref and return to the sidelines.

    Apparently a less popular opinion, but I'm with Cassanova here, act like this isn't your first rodeo.

    Sounds like I’m in the minority here, but I’m big on “act like you’ve been there”. Celebration is fine. Over doing it is not. What is allowed in the college game is fine with me, although the dawgs have got some big time BS excessive celebration penalties that have cost them games. (LSU a ways back, TN Hail Mary)

    Trash talk is something totally different to me. I dont Agree with it, but can’t usually hear it. So go for it , if it’s your thing.

    Totally ok with trash talk in a golf group amongst friends. I better Be anyway
