Oklahoma Sooners Football Hot Links: Baker Mayfield has a “boulder” on his shoulder

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield joined The Dan Patrick show Monday Morning

NCAA Football: Texas Christian at Oklahoma Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Oklahoma Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield has become a regular on The Dan Patrick Show, and the quarterback checked in with Dan once again on Monday morning before his weekly appearance at the media luncheon.

When asked (for quite possibly the millionth time) if he plays with a chip on his shoulder, Baker had a nice response:

“A boulder, I think.”

Yep, a boulder. A chip will not suffice, nor will even an entire bag of chips.

Dan also brought up a little wager between the two of these guys from a previous interview. Back in August, the host agreed to make an attempt at arranging Mayfield to be a backup dancer at a Justin Timberlake concert if the QB threw for 40 touchdowns this season. Mayfield currently sits at 31 with plenty of action remaining, so the goal is well within reach.

Here’s Monday’s interview in it’s entirety:

Alright, on to the afternoon Hot Links:

OU Links

  • Speaking of Baker Mayfield, Dan Kadar of SB Nation has him going No. 7 overall to the San Diego Los Angeles Chargers. He also has Orlando Brown and Mark Andrews going in the first round.
  • On the recruiting front, a major OU offensive line target has pushed back his commitment announcement. Reuben Unije has been considered a heavy OU lean for some time, so this isn’t fantastic news.
  • Rodney Anderson was named Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week this morning. Anyone who gains at least 139 yards as both a rusher and receiver is usually going to be a runaway winner in that race.
  • Speaking of individual awards, freshman point guard Trae Young was named Big 12 Player of the Week after scoring 15 points and dishing out 10 assists on Sunday.
  • Do you like stats? Here’s a good one for you. The possibility of Mayfield matching Jones’ TD mark seemed unthinkable heading into the season, but the milestone is actually within reach.
