Baker Mayfield Blames Katy Perry for Oklahoma Sooners 2014 Collapse

((Katy Perry/Wikipedia))

So, the mystery we never knew existed now has apparently been resolved. At least in the mind of Star Oklahoma QB Baker Mayfield.

We aren't sure exactly how or why this even came up Monday in Mayfield's Newser, yet it did.

Mayfield, who sat out the 2014 season because of a transfer--told the assembled reporters and photographers the reason the '14 Sooners team, which jumped out to a 4-0 record and was a darling of the pollsters---finished the season 8-5.

He blamed Pop Music star Katy Perry.

Yup, that's right---he explained everything changed when Perry was a "Guest Picker" on ESPN's College Gameday show and expressed her "Appreciation" of then Sooner QB Trevor Knight.

FWIW--Knight never finished his career at OU as Mayfield beat him out and Knight transferred.

We have no earthly idea why this randomly came up on Monday--yet it did and the question surprisingly got answered. One has to wonder now if Mayfield who has been nothing short of spectacular in 2017 may have inadvertently put the "Whammy" on his own self this season.

Guess we'll find out soon...though not this week as Oklahoma plays hapless Baylor--a game that could get ugly....really, really fast.
