Mayfield Won't Start On Senior Day As Punishment For Sideline Outburst

Mayfield's offseason arrest for public intoxication in Fayetteville, Ark., brought only an internal punishment, and the senior apologized after planting an OU flag on Ohio State's field following the Sooners' 31-16 win in Week 2.

Dineen later said it was done to fire up teammates and partly as an attempt to rattle the short-fused Mayfield.

Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield will NOT start this weekend - and has been stripped of his team captain status - as a result of the junk-grabbing gesture during the Kansas game. "That was a situation where we needed to make a better decision there".

Here's the deal, the Heisman rules say it should go to the college player who shows not only great numbers, but also exhibits integrity and sportsmanship.

Indeed, Menendez today seemed very much like a candidate who intends to seek another term, and his odds of success aren't bad. Federal prosecutors are expected to review the details of the trial prior to deciding if they will retry Menendez and Melgen.

"I think its important for everybody here, across the country to keep in perspective ... that not just Baker but all these players across the country are still young men", Riley said. "They're not adults. They're still learning".

'I got caught up in a competitive game, a chippy game, but what I did today, tonight, was unacceptable, ' Mayfield told reporters.

For that reason, he won't start next week against West Virginia but he will play in the game.

"I wasn't sure really what was going on, because it was a little bit unique", Beaty said. Thinking about the kids that are watching this now, it's not something I want to do to the parents out there.
