Baker Mayfield Apologizes For Mocking Kansas Fans And Grabbing His Crotch On Live TV While Children Were Watching
Baker Mayfield had a very eventful day against 1-9 Kansas. It all started when Kansas players refused to shake his hand during the coin toss.
Things escalated a little while when Mayfield began talking trash to Jayhawks players and fans which led to a Kansas player hitting him with a cheap shot in the third quarter of the game.
While blowing out Kansas, Mayfield grabbed his crotch and fired off some expletives at the Jayhawks sideline.
After the game Mayfield released a statement apologizing for his actions on the field.
I am extremely sorry for how I carried myself today. I am sorry to the Kansas fans, coaches and players for disrespecting them. I am sorry to Sooners fans for not representing our university the way I should. I am so sorry for any parent that had their kid watching, I was not the good and inspiring role model that I aspire to be. What I did was unacceptable and in turn has taken away the attention off our team. Not to mention my solo act reflects poorly on my team/program…which is the opposite of what I want to do. I want my teammates and coaches to get all the attention and credit for working hard and having success. I am sorry to my brothers and coaches as well. I am an extremely competitive player once on the field but that does not excuse and will never excuse my actions today. I truly am sorry from the bottom of my heart.
Hopefully Mayfield doesn’t turn down his attitude too much. Mayfield has easily been the most entertaining player in college football this year.
