Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield was asked about Texas Longhorns QB Sam Ehlinger during this week’s press conference. Baker admitted that he doesn’t know much about Ehlinger, who has just three career starts under his belt, but the Lake Travis product did offer up one fact he does know about Ehlinger.
Baker Mayfield, on fellow Austin native/Texas QB Sam Ehlinger: "He went to Westlake and he’s never beaten Lake Travis,” Mayfield’s HS.— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) October 9, 2017
Another classic example of Baker being Baker. These one-liners are one of the reasons OU fans love him and opposing fan bases tend to hate him. This joke was in good fun, and most everyone had a good laugh about it and moved on with their day.
Credit Baker Mayfield. He has every Texas writer looking up the history of the Lake Travis-Austin Westlake series.— Chuck Carlton (@ChuckCarltonDMN) October 9, 2017
The amazing thing about the reactions to Baker’s comment was that not a single person got mad online after hearing what he said. Texas fans were especially not mad. In fact, they thought it was funny! Here is a compilation of the least mad Texas fans who decided to drop some fire takes about Baker on the web.
