For obscene display, Baker Mayfield won't start Saturday for Oklahoma

For obscene display, Baker Mayfield won't start Saturday for Oklahoma

Kansas football coach David Beaty expressed remorse Monday for his captains' actions before Saturday's 41-3 loss to Oklahoma.

"It's disrespectful, it's not the example I want to set, it's not the legacy I want to leave at OU, so I truly do apologize", Mayfield said.

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield will not start Saturday against West Virginia as part of team punishment, after he was captured on national television shouting expletives and grabbing his crotch during last week's game at Kansas.

"I would also say that despite this - no matter how long I go coaching, whatever the rest of my career ends up being like - I don't know that I'll ever have a player that's as special to me as he is". "They'll learn from this and continue to grow into successful productive men and great Jayhawks that the Jayhawk family can be proud of. They're still learning, they're still in that phase where you're going to make mistakes and the important thing is that you learn from them and grow from them, and I think what we're setting forward here is going to provide Baker an opportunity to do that". Oklahoma hosts West Virginia on Saturday at 3:45 p.m. ET.

"I wasn't sure really what was going on, because it was a little bit unique", Beaty said. "When they're not met, there's got to be consequences". "I talk about being a competitive player". Thinking about the kids that are watching this now, it's not something I want to do to the parents out there.
