Baker, Baker, the brunt of jokemaker

Did you hear the one about the quarterback and the ex-coach?

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield was arrested over last weekend and charged public intoxication, disorderly conduct and resisting arrest and fleeing the scene in Fayetteville, Ark., by the Washington County Sheriff’s Office (and all Auburn fans say, “Why didn’t this happen on New Year’s Eve in New Orleans?”).

Acccording to the arrest report, the police commanded Mayfield to “come over to me” but the Sooners’ frontrunner for the Heisman sprinted away. The officer chased and tackled Mayfield (and all Auburn fans says, “check and see if that cop has any eligibility left”).

His inability to run away from the officer has drawn a lot of attention, especially from one former Oklahoma head coach, Barry Switzer.

Switzer tweeted: They couldn’t have caught my quarterbacks!!

Another coach living in a glass house? CBSsports.com Tom Fornelli points out, Switzer must have selective memory.
