Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield made a big mistake Monday when he apologized for his post-game actions after defeating Ohio State.

Mayfield took a massive Oklahoma Sooners flag and planted it at midfield of the Buckeyes stadium after he rocked them late Saturday night.

I hated the move. It was only the second game of the season, and it seemed a bit early to be planting flags on the field.

The only thing I might hate more is the fact he apologized for it. He claimed he didn’t mean for it to be disrespectful, which is a joke because you don’t plant flags on the field of an opposing field unless you want it to a slap in the face.


He shouldn’t have done it in the first place, but you have to stick to your guns once that bullet is fired. I would have gone out there and told the every member of the media I’d do it again if I got the the opportunity.

Winners don’t back down. Winners double down. I was pretty high on Oklahoma, but this pathetic apology has me rethinking the Sooners.
