Lol, nobody has posted shit, yet a few a act like they did post shit.
You so called insiders, repost what you claim to know. Nothing new, just repost what you already posted. I ain't seen nothin indicating he would not be on the team, and nothing to suggust he would not play vs tOSU. Other posters (not insiders) have posted guesses but they never claimed to be insiders either.
I find it funny to read "PM me if you want to know" lol. Who, if they had insider facts, would come here and claim they know and will tell you if you PM them. What a crock of shit. That would leak like a seive. I think they want to feel important like I said several pages ago.
One guess of mine is Baker will be motivated to play hard and especially vs tOSU. Since this will hurt his Heisman chances the one game we all know will have a national telecast and exposure to voters is tOSU and if he has a monster game it could mitigate the PI situation.
I think for most fans that game is the bottom line. Any punishment up to tOSU is fine but that game is the line in sand. We rarely get markee matchups like this and he needs to play or OU risks huge longterm backlash.
Just because I'm a die-hard fan doesn't mean my well-being revolves around OU football. I just want the best, the very best, for the team that I've cheered my ass off for since I was 6. If you guys don't see the similarities between this situation and 4th and goal on the 5 with 00:02 left on the clock in Dallas, then you're not perceiving this situation correctly. Just because we're not live doesn't mean this is not pins and needles shit. We've all been there, it just depends on how one ascertains the situation.
Bourne is not stupid, and neither is Boren (maybe a little bit). He knows damned well that having Baker Mayfield at QB gives OU a chance (at least in the media) to make the playoffs, and this means publicity and money--and more chances for him to be on TV promoting OU. He also knows that BM's recent stupidity hurts OU's reputation where it counts for Boren. So he's pissed, as he should be. But he's not going to boot BM or or make him sit for half the season. He's going to rant and rave to Stoops and issue threats and endorse Bob's one-game with a short leash suspension.
This is rock-solid information from my own head.
