Baker Mayfield does not want Texas signees trash talking Oklahoma without comeback.

Four-star Texas signee Keondre Coburn made a promise to beat Oklahoma in his announcement he was signing with Texas on Wednesday.

Mayfield, the former Oklahoma quarterback and reigning Heisman winner, took note of the defensive lineman’s tweet Wednesday afternoon.

It would have been too easy for Mayfield to ignore Coburn’s tweet, especially given his status as the best player in college football in 2017 while Coburn hasn’t taken a snap yet. But it’s also part of Mayfield’s charm (or unlikeability if you’re an opposing fan) and what makes him such a great competitor. He does not like being slighted.

If Texas beats Oklahoma in the next few seasons, Coburn better fire a tweet to Mayfield as soon as he gets a chance.
