Barry Switzer Blames Baker Mayfield’s Crotch Grab on Madonna & Michael Jackson (VIDEO)
Last weekend against the Kansas Jayhawks, Baker Mayfield was certainly fired up during the game after the Jayhawks captains refused to shake his hand before the game. It only escalated from there as Mayfield taunted the crowd by telling them to stick to being a basketball school, and it got worse when he grabbed his crotch and screamed obscenities towards the Jayhawks bench.
Oklahoma coach Lincoln Riley announced on Monday that his star QB would be stripped of his captaincy for Senior Day, and would not start the game for the Sooners. The coach cried as he delivered the punishment and then Mayfield cried as he reflected back on his actions during that game.
Oklahoma legend Barry Switzer doesn’t think Mayfield thought about the consequences before he did it, but certainly doesn’t blame him for it. He went on to state that it was Madonna and Michael Jackson’s fault that the kids are into crotch grabbing nowadays.
“When there’s an action, there’s always a reaction. You don’t have time to think, you don’t have time to meditate. ‘Oh, should I do this? What are going to be the consequences?’ Most of the time with personal fouls and someone’s ejected from the game, they’re the one that retaliates. The other guy hits him, they hit back and that’s the one the official sees.
That’s exactly what happened to [Mayfield] the other day. He retaliated, he reacted to what someone was saying to him instantaneously.
…. I blame it on Madonna and Michael Jackson. They started all that grabbing the crotch years ago. And it’s been on social media, everybody sees it. We see it in the movies. We see it every day out there.
So all of a sudden everybody gives me this ‘it’s an insult, we ought to fire him, we ought to kick him off the team.’ They’re idiots, and thank God they’re not the coach of the Oklahoma Sooners.”
