Baker Mayfield Fans Butthurt: ESPN is picking on their boy.

"Every single thing on that offense is really good".

Seems like he forgot about one kinda important position ...

I believe Colin was eluding to the supporting cast, not the QB. Cleveland is stacked at receiver, running back, tight end and they plugged up their porous offensive line with a solid set of tackles. If Baker fails during the 2020 season the Browns may as well move on because he'll never work out.

The Lake Travis fanbois on the 6A site are gonna buy in on this shit again, right?  Last year one of those cats said BM was going to be MVP and was better than Mahomes.
It was fun watching that Popsicle melt in about Week 6  3.

Username checks out...

Only because his agent told him to do so.

there are a looooooot of white coaches and players saying what they think they are supposed to say right now

I don't personally think Tom Herman believes much of what he's saying. To him, it's no different than when he gets asked about playing A&M. There's a right way to answer, a wrong way, and his personal opinion, and whether his personal opinion lines up with the Correct Answer or not, the Correct Answer is what comes out.

What makes you think that? He seems genuine to me, but that too is only my opinion.

Yep, I'm right there with you.  And not just him, any white coach right now who's talking....why weren't you talking before this?  The ones who are silent, at least you know they're genuine.  Doesn't mean they're good people, but they're not lying salesmen either.  Kirk Ferentz is lying his ass off right now to save his job, how could anyone believe a fucking word of it.

People don't always challenge their own views or actions until confronted with it.  I didn't realize how insensitive I was to people with special needs (or their family members) with my cavalier use of 'retarded' until it became a discussion point over a decade ago.

That's fair, or charitable. I would find your evolution on using the word "retarded" a little less genuine if you had a huge financial stake in recruiting two dozen retards a year and it became clear that calling them "retarded" would negatively impact your ability to do so.

I don't consider it anything beyond a minimum effort on my part.  I suppose I also benefited financially from having removed some words from my lexicon, but that was not my motivation.   Lastly, I generally give people the benefit of the doubt and prescribe to a softer form of Hanlon's Razor, unless they demonstrate otherwise.

you're talking a lot about yourself here. I don't know you, don't know anything about you. You say you stopped throwing the word "retard" around analogously to Tom Herman's loudly enlightened racial attitudes, in what I interpreted to be your attempt to say "see some people do change, I did".

I mean, I don't really know what to tell you. I'm happy you're happy. If you think Herman's genuinely a racially woke social justice warrior down with the cause, that's fine. I personally wouldn't believe the guy if he told me he had orange juice in his fridge. In this specific case, where his $5m/yr salary is critically dependent on young black football players agreeing to come to UT and take instruction from him, and he thus has a vested financial and W-L interest in appearing as sympathetic as possible to their group racial dynamic, I really couldn't be any more skeptical of what he's saying publicly. 

Good for him if his conscience and his public statements are truly in alignment.

As I said before, it was simply an example of how someone can alter a behavior by simply being pointed out that the behavior is insensitive.  I understand that Tom Herman seems to upset people, that doesn't define his character.   Also his actions and behavior with a spousal abuse victim was pretty stand-up and he didn't exactly benefit from getting involved.  He doesn't have to hug and kiss his players and yet he does.

I think he's a character concern because he's a dipshit who has done many dipshit things, many of them on camera!

Gotta admit, that sucks.   It's like posting a wedding picture with that other gal you dated...

Wouldn't be the first time you quit, eh Baker?

That's like asking "What if Baker Mayfield weren't a fucking crybaby piece of shit?!" A complete fantasy.

Sorry, me making sex with Gal Gadot, Kate Beckinsale, and Scarlett Johansson at the same time would make me supreme leader of the intergalactic federation of planets.

Damn, I forgot about Gal Gadot. She's atop the list these days.
