Baker Mayfield Punished By Oklahoma ... For Crotch-Grabbing

Oklahoma disciplines Baker Mayfield for obscene gesture

Riley didn't give a timetable on how long Mayfield would be out but my guess is that it might be just one offensive drive before Baker trots out back onto the field for the Sooners and all will be forgiven. It will be interesting to see how he answers questions about whether his three captains will be disciplined in any way for not shaking Mayfield's extended right hand during the pre-game coin toss.

Mayfield made an obscene gesture and appeared to yell expletives toward the Kansas sideline during OU's win over the Jayhawks on Saturday.

On Monday afternoon, Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley said he will not start the Heisman hopeful quarterback and also has stripped Mayfield of captain privileges for the team's final game Saturday against West Virginia.

". I think it's important for everybody here (and) across the country to keep in perspective. that not just Baker, but all these players across the country are still young men". Mayfield spent much of his postgame address Saturday apologizing for his actions. "I am a competitive player but what I did was unacceptable so I apologize". He's added another 240 yards and five touchdowns on the ground and should win the Heisman in a landslide this year, regardless of his behavior. It's disrespectful. It's not the example I want to set. "I know the kid good enough to know that he's a really good person".

Riley got emotional when describing Mayfield, who is second in the nationa with 3,816 passing yards.
