Baker Mayfield running around like a maniac and planting the Oklahoma flag at Ohio Stadium was easily the best thing I’ve seen in sports all year — and this is coming from a guy who lost money on the Buckeyes. Something about over-the-top, brash celebrations just do it for me:

But sadly, it looks like the Fun Police got a hold of Baker after the big game and convinced the quarterback who gutted Ohio State to apologize… “It did not mean for it to be disrespectful towards any Ohio State people at all”.

Come on, Baker. The only thing you need to apologize for is failing to firmly plant the flag.
Update: Lincoln Riley says Baker made the choice.
"That's something Baker (Mayfield) wanted to do"
Lincoln Riley says it was the QB's decision alone to apologize for planting the OU flag. pic.twitter.com/TruuG5GemZ
