This Deleted Baker Mayfield Tweet Is Going Viral After Texas Beat Oklahoma In The Cotton Bowl

first_imgbaker mayfield speaks at browns press conferenceBaker Mayfield no longer plays for Oklahoma, but he’s still catching some heat for his former team’s performance on the field against Texas on Saturday – partially because of something he tweeted this past February.Mayfield, back in February, took exception what a Texas recruit had tweeted about playing the Sooners in their annual rivalry game. Keondre Coburn, a four-star player who is now a freshman at Texas, promised his followers on Twitter that during his time in Austin, his team would beat Oklahoma.Mayfield responded, calling Coburn “naive” – adding that he has “no idea” what it’s like to step into the Cotton Bowl and win. He later deleted the tweet after getting criticized for blasting an 18-year-old.Well, it may not have been Coburn’s doing, but Texas stepped into the Cotton Bowl and knocked off Oklahoma on Saturday. Fans have been letting Mayfield know just how wrong he was earlier this year.??DELETED TWEET?? by @bakermayfield(? by @jonvillanueva_)#TEXvsOU— Freezing Cold Takes (@OldTakesExposed) October 6, 2018Texas, with the 48-45 win, moves to 5-1 on the year with just a loss to Maryland. Oklahoma also now owns a 5-1 record, but loses the tiebreaker against the Longhorns, should it matter.As for Mayfield – he’ll be fine. He was the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s NFL Draft and he’s looked solid as a rookie so far for the Cleveland Browns. But he likely did not like what he saw on his television screen on Saturday afternoon.last_img
