Listen: Baker Mayfield, Oklahoma, Football discussed on The Herd
"For this network. First of all we have a massive game this week. Oklahoma tech is I'm gonna say it, and you're not going to be comfortable with this. And you're gonna wind about it. I don't gay. Cuyler murray. Baker Mayfield leaves I watched Oklahoma. Their offense has better Cuyler Murray. You guys buggies all over the field. He throws beautiful deep ball. They're not better. But you don't think the offense is better than Oklahoma. No, they they're good. They're very good. This are basically even they're basically the exact same right now. Kyle is going to have to do a little bit more with his feet than Baker did just because of the loss of Rodney Anderson. He throws the ball down the field better than people give him credit for looking at the same. As as this guy. I will say this color Keiler is the most unique quarterback. I've evaluated in a long time. Here's why he is elite as a runner normally when you have elite runners at quarterback, they're not great thrower of the football. This kid is he's a great thrower of the telling you the combination is as good as I've seen maybe ever. And trust me. I've talked with Texas coaches issue this year, the FAU coaches, UCLA coaches, all these coaches are going to face him. Him every single one of those coaches are like never seen this before by the way, never seen anything like it before. I only is not as good without Josh Allen US's not as good without Sam darnold UCLA can't win a football game. Without Josh Rosen. Louisville's not as go without Lamar Jackson, Oklahoma's better without Baker may Baker thing. Because the last time I checked Cleveland is like actually relevant now in the National Football League. Because we guy like Baker Mayfield. Good. He's a great thrower the ball. Unbelievable. They're not even in that game. Without Baker Mayfield. Why why do you make this about Baker Mayfield? Hey, hey, it's called big j journalists, and we touched on all the time. Jay leno. We don't avoid topics on this show shows are scared of the stuff on us. This is big j journalism. You just. Trouble journalism struggle. No, I I will say this in you know, how I feel about this. I have told you I think college football's getting a little regional for my. I think Tom Herman's close. I don't think he's close enough to win. I think Oklahoma's game. But I will say this Tom Herman is working. Here's all I've ever said when you take over program by the middle of the second year, I got to see growth, and you're seeing seeing total Texas next year, Texas is a eleven when team and this year calling. I'm telling you, maybe this year think about this. Now, he's he's lost seven games as the head coach of the Texas longhorns. Five of them. They had the lead in the fourth quarter of those losses. I'm not even talking about the games in which now they've clearly turned the corner when they're beating USC scorned thirty four straight beaten a ranked opponent beaten up on TCU, by the way in the Lao. TCU to score over seventeen that's three straight games at their defense has held the opponent under seventeen they're legitimate. And I will. I'll tell you this too in this game specifically. Yes. Oklahoma's unbelievable. Lincoln Riley, probably the best offense of mine in college football as the Sean McVay of college football. Yeah. Absolutely. Probably gonna get NFL looks at the end of the season guess, which defensive coordinator is like kryptonite to Lincoln Riley. Todd Orlando at Texas when he was at Houston. What did Todd Orlando do beat Oklahoma last year only defensive coordinator, hold Oklahoma under thirty points? Only one Georgia. Didn't do it allows. They didn't do it Texas was the only one I'm just telling you this game likely going to be lower scoring than you think. Yeah. And tighter than you think this is I gotta tell you something I love, and I've been to Austin a half dozen times. And I don't know why this is I always as a kid. I love Michigan football in Texas football. It was the uniform way to go. You're trying to tell me those two schools were not football. So no, no. I didn't say they weren't. They're not the best football town because they view their stuff to do. In an do you say? Football school is."
