I know I trash Baker Mayfield on a regular basis. I’m not going to hide from that fact, and I’m not going to deny it.
Having said all of that, he’s without a doubt one of the greatest college football players of all time, and he starred for the Sooners on his way to a Heisman.
Anybody who says he’s not an icon when it comes to Sooners football is simply a liar. Even a guy like myself, who doesn’t like Mayfield, can admit that he balled out for Oklahoma.
While he hasn’t done anything at the pro level worth writing home about, I think it’s more than fair to say he’s earned his statue.
