Oklahoma disciplines Baker Mayfield for obscene gesture

Oklahoma disciplines Baker Mayfield for obscene gesture

Sooners coach Lincoln Riley announced Monday to reporters he's punishing the senior signal caller for his crotch-grabbing and trash-talking antics he displayed Saturday against Kansas.

Riley teared up as he explained why Mayfield was so important to him.

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield will not start his final regular-season game Saturday at home against West Virginia, thanks to his conduct during a 41-3 win over Kansas. "I think this will do nothing but make us stronger". "He's got a great heart that a lot of people don't get the chance to see like I do, and I'm proud as hell to be his coach".

Beaty said he holds no ill will toward Mayfield. "They're not adults. They're still learning".

He pointed toward the team's three turnovers and nine penalties for 87 yards as examples of failed execution. Kicker Harrison Butker has been carrying the team in points scored the last few weeks.

Police officer shot and killed, suspect flees
Police have identified the shooter as 29-year-old Rahmael Sal Holt and released a photo of him on Twitter late Saturday evening. National Football League head coach Mike Tomlin of the Pittsburgh Steelers also gave his condolences.

Jerry Jones apologizes for racially insensitive remark
The intra-league drama has made the NFL's behind-the-scenes negotiations more interesting than the games themselves. It's because Jones sees the Elliott suspension as "an unforgivable breach" of his trust in Goodell.

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.

Beaty, who said he has since spoken to his team about the incident, said he was not aware before the game that his players were going to refuse handshakes. "When I realized the coaches said something, that's when I realized that I really messed up".

"They made a mistake, and they'll get better as a result", Beaty said. "It's not anything you want your kids to watch". "I talk about being a competitive player".

"But you know, there's things you've got to think about beyond just the moment, and that's what we're using as the teachable moment".
