Baker Mayfield takes shots at Texas, Sam Ehlinger
Baker Mayfield continues to make it clear where he stands in the Red River Rivalry.
The former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback spoke with Sports Talk 1400’s Ted Lehman and Tyler McComastook from his football camp in Norman on Wednesday. During the interview, he took some shots at the Texas Longhorns. He said that they’re not “back” yet despite Sam Ehlinger’s proclamation after the Sugar Bowl.

The other comment Mayfield made has to do with him playing at Lake Travis in Austin for high school, while Ehlinger played at rival Westlake, another top football program in Austin.
“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 said. “That will stir the pot. He doesn’t like me and I hope he knows I don’t like him either.”
This is new for Mayfield, who was actually complimentary of Ehlinger after Oklahoma’s win over the Longhorns in 2017. But the Cleveland Browns quarterback has been making it quite clear he is not a Texas fan.
