Big 12 players either forgot about Austin Kendall or they don't think his trash-talking game is that impressive.
Baker Mayfield had one of the worst games of his career, going 17-for-32 for 226 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions. His adjusted QBR of 48.1 was more than 18 points lower than any other 2016 game.
Though the eventual Heisman Trophy finalist didn't have many opportunities for trash talk in that game, he's supposedly an eager trash-talker, at least according to Big 12 opponents. Mayfield was voted the "biggest trash-talker in the Big 12" by players in the conference, earning six of a possible 23 votes in a survey conducted by the Dallas Morning News.
Mayfield beat out his left tackle Orlando Brown (four), Texas as a team (three) and Kansas defensive tackle Daniel Wise (two) and eight others with one vote apiece, including Oklahoma State punter and 2017 Heisman candidate Zach Sinor.
They asked five other questions, including "Who is the nicest player in the Big 12?" TCU linebacker Ty Summers — who ranked second in the league with 121 tackles last year — won that honor with three votes. Kansas State guard Dalton Risner and Texas quarterback Shane Buechele tied for second with two votes.
