Baker Mayfield Disses Texas/Ehlinger
Baker Mayfield may be in the pros now but that doesn't keep him from talking a little college football. The Browns quarterback didn't hold back his feelings about the University of Texas in an interview with SportsTalk 1400 on Wednesday.
When asked about Texas being considered an early favorite to win it all this season, Mayfield was far from impressed.
"They said the same thing when they beat Notre Dame a couple of years ago, and they won like three games after that," Mayfield said. "I'm sick of that crap."
Well at least he didn't get that colorful, it was on AM radio after all. But then he got a little personal when talking about Texas QB Sam Ehlinger.
"He couldn't beat Lake Travis, so I don't really care about his opinion on winning," Mayfield said. "Westlake is a great program, but the two best quarterbacks to come out of there are Drew Brees and Nick Foles. Sam can stay down there in Texas."
Mayfield played at Lake Travis, both schools are in the Austin area.
All this talk will just add fuel to the fire come October 12th when Texas plays Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry in Dallas. Baker may want to hold his tongue, rankings usually don't mean a whole lot in that matchup, the team with the bigger chip on its shoulder usually comes out on top.
