Remember Austin Kendall? Ohio State’s defense certainly does.
Kendall is the Oklahoma backup QB who, earlier in the week, predicted the Sooners would have no trouble against the Buckeyes’ “really basic defense,” and that Baker Mayfield would “light ’em up.”
Then Saturday happened and Mayfield was held to a QBR of just 23.4, the worst of his Oklahoma career, in a 45-24 Ohio State romp. To cap off the ‘L’ Kendall has undoubtedly taken, Buckeyes linebacker Raekwon McMillan posted this on Instagram:
Bench players talking like starters I hate it … #BasicDefense 3-0
I’m sure Bob Stoops feels the same way about his backup quarterback giving a top-five team bulletin board material.
