Typical ESPN soundbite politics (trying to sensationalize a story) trying to say Baker was classless (he made a mistake) without putting it in proper perspective or at least telling the whole story, not a self-serving one-sided bite to build a typical soundbite headline.

First, the Kansas players refused to shake hands with Baker and the others in front of little children at the coin toss (see picture below). Then, their defensive tackle starts chirping away at Baker in first quarter, then a horiffic missed targeting call that was flagrant against Baker (image below, the video is stunning). The Kansas Coach grabs his private area (See picture below). Then in the second half the Kansas safety did an obvious horse collar and personal foul against a sore loser Kansas player (see image below).

It does not excuse Baker‘s grabbing his private parts, but it definitely puts it in better perspective, as he is only human. If that would have been a top SEC quarterback like AJ McCarron or Cam Newton, the ESPN talking heads would have given them a pass and they have.

Coach Riley said it was a chippy game, but will not accept the action by Baker that and address it And that should be it, but the ESPN talking heads will try to make it something more than it was.

All of this sensationalization by ESPN is not surprising, since the Oklahoma and the Big12 is with Fox Sports (FS1, FSSW< etc...) ESPN needs to refrain from bias and provide even coverage. It is why they have lost millions of subscribers and had to layoff lots of people. Numbers do not lie! Boomer!

Sooner4OU*** It is political correctness gone wide! *** It is an emotional sport and Baker apologized, so let‘s move on. But, you know ESPN and the hypocritical talking heads aren’t going to let it go. The have their SEC investment to manage. ESPN sucks!

Sooner4OUHere is Baker’s apology, but watch as the hypocrites and soundbite loons at ESPN will not stop sensationalizing the story And only tell one part of the story, not all of it. It is more oF the East Coast and SEC bias they have.

Bronson WebsterI thought it showed some lack of class by the network to continue to video him for several minutes after he made the gesture. They were wanting him to continue ana were gonna air it and that's not classy in the least.

Brent WilliamsEveryone can be a homer all they want. Grabbing your crotch and saying F you is wrong at home, in public, at work, at a stadium, in a stadium, and on national tv. It doesn’t matter what anyone else did or said. it does not make it ok anywhere any time. Considering his past arrest and current situation, I don’t care how good you are OU FOOTBALL the OU brand and the state deserves better people than that representing us on the field. Winning is important but at what cost? Morals? Integrity? Reputation? I had two young daughters watching the game, they can’t even replay what he did on highlights it’s adult content. I say Baker take a seat for the remainder of the season son. We expect more and we are better than this!

Kenneth YoungThe other thing is that the games are tape delayed 8-10 seconds....they could have easily switched to another camera if it was so offensive. But they didn't because they want to demonize Mayfield and OU. ESPN sucks...period.

Jeff SurrattOk. Nuf said!! Baker just lost it s little. He is tired of the ribbing he and his team had taken. The arrest is over and done with. In my opinion Kansas is the assholes. They have no sportsmanship. Glad the Sooners kicked their ass. In summary, all you OU and non-OU people need to get off of Bakers ass and start backing your team!!!! I have for 58 years! BOOMER SOONER!

Charles KayHe’s a very emotional player who you guys declared the best QB in OU history less than a week ago. He was disrespected at the coin toss, chirped at repeatedly, laid upon by defensive linemen, and the victim of one of the cheapest shots I have ever seen. He is at his best when he plays with an edge. I wonder how many of these sanctimonious SOB’s would’ve liked having a camera following their every move when they were 22 years old.

Jeremy GlennI am VERY disappointed in the Jayhawks’ behavior. I’ve been a lifetime Jayhawk as I was born in Kansas and I went to KU. I’ve supported KU sports (not just basketball), but I always have supported a local team no matter where I lived while maintaining my love fo KU. I moved to Oklahoma in 2012 after the Army and have been supporting the Sooners since late 2011 when I decided to move to Oklahoma. I think it’s time Foe Kansas to clean house and change the culture of their team.

Michael FalleurWell, sorry it happened in a moment of emotional play, but again, Kansas, has always been players of trash talk and dirty play, then you have trash talking ESPN, players, wouldn't have even tuned into ESPN if it weren't for our team Oklahoma Sooners. So talk that and stick ESPN and Kansas

Leigh Anne BiselAgreed. It started off bad and only got worse. Kansas set the tone, however; Baker and the team have to realize they can’t buy into that. He has to realize he is on camera constantly. He shouldn’t have done what he did. I’m sure Coach Riley will discuss his behavior with him. And like you said that should be the end of it, but media won’t leave it alone. Haters are gonna hate.

Gregory ShuckWhat he should have done was leave the field after the coin toss and put 50 points on the board before halftime, and tried for 100 by the final gun.

Barb WesleyPoor officiating and the announcers spent a whole lot of time discussing Baker's attitude on the field. Why wouldn't he have an attitude the way the Kansas boys were acting????

Sooner4OUThis is a painful game to watch. Not going to help their CFB playoff cause, given the other contenders strong play today.

Sarah MedskerGet over it. It’s football, it’s not always classy nor is it correct. They didn’t happen to show what was happing on KUs side lines now did they?! They aren’t going to! They will do anything to make us look bad. I like Baker I think he’s funny and entertaining. KU started it and kept it up just because they didn’t show what they were doing doesn’t mean they weren’t in the wrong.
