Baker Mayfield has great quote about his Oklahoma statue
Baker Mayfield’s new statue at Oklahoma would have had a different pose if it had been up to the quarterback himself.
Oklahoma unveiled the statue on Friday, which depicts Mayfield stiff-arming an Oklahoma State player. Mayfield admitted that it was the second-best option, solely because athletic director Joe Castiglione would not allow one of Mayfield’s famous flag plant at Ohio State.
Baker Mayfield asked about the choice of pose for his Heisman statue.
“Joe C wasn’t going to allow the flag plant. We decided on the stiff arm of little brother. That’s there forever.”

Mayfield signaled his arrival on the national scene in 2017 by famously planting an Oklahoma flag on the Ohio State logo after a road upset of the Buckeyes. While obviously controversial and a big sore spot for Ohio State, Oklahoma fans loved the act.
Maybe the Sooners should have taken Mayfield’s statue suggestion considering how weird the finished product wound up looking.
