Baker Mayfield calls award snub for Oklahoma offensive line ‘blasphemy’

The finalists for the Joe Moore award didn’t include the Oklahoma offensive line, and Baker Mayfield took to Twitter to defend those who defend him.

The finalists were Notre Dame, Alabama, and Auburn.

College football awards outside of the Heisman largely mean nothing, but Baker Mayfield is still defending his group. He stated that it’s “blasphemy” and that he was “dumbfounded as to how you can actually leave them out of that conversation.”

He’s absolutely right, by the way. The awards are mostly meaningless, but the Oklahoma offensive line is incredible, especially Orlando Brown, who will almost certainly go in the first round of the NFL Draft. It’s strange for them to be left off for offensive lines of significantly worse offenses like Notre Dame or Alabama. But at the end of the day, Oklahoma will be playing for the biggest prize of all if they win on Saturday, and two of those three teams mentioned will have to be content with a lesser bowl.
