‘Conversations with Coach’: Bob Stoops and Baker Mayfield on their very first conversation

‘Conversations with Coach’: Bob Stoops and Baker Mayfield on their very first conversation

Stoops and one of his Heisman-winning quarterbacks talk OU-Texas, why the Buccaneer life is like being a Sooner all over again and their first conversation: “You walk up to me and say, ‘Coach, I’m Baker Mayfield.’ I look and you and I’m like ‘You sure as hell are, aren’t you?’”

Before even introducing himself to Bob Stoops, Baker Mayfield was making a name for himself at OU — in intramurals.

On this episode of “Conversations with Coach,” Mayfield joins his former Sooner coach to talk about their first meeting after his transfer as a walkon, Mayfield’s domination of OU intramural softball and flag football and the moment he joined the Sooner football program.

The rest, of course, is Sooner history. Mayfield went on to win the 2017 Heisman Trophy, become the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL Draft, and — more relevant this week — win two out of three meetings with Texas.

Other topics Stoops and Mayfield cover:

*Mayfield’s experience growing up a Sooner fan in Austin.

*Going through four head coaches and four offensive coordinators in Cleveland.

*The LA story Mayfield wrote late last season.

*Why being Tampa Bay’s starting quarterback is like being back at OU again.
