Baylor Bear Claw "Sic 'Em, Bears" or Texas State University (TSU) Cat Claw Brass Hand Sculpture
In 1960, Baylor University's yell leaders introduced the Bear Claw Hand Sign. The sign is made by slightly curving all five fingers inward to form a claw. The use of both the hand signal and the "Sic 'Em, Bears" yell was sporadic until Grant Teaff arrived as Baylor's head football coach in 1972. Teaff initiated a new era of Baylor football, and the "Bear Claw" and "Sic 'Em, Bears" yell came to symbolize pride in Baylor University athletics.
