The University of Oklahoma Sooners should have four losses by now. They have a surprisingly tough Big 12 schedule this year and played the Ohio State Buckeyes in Columbus. This year, their defense is arguably the worst they’ve had in two decades. Despite all this, they have one loss and are in contention for the playoffs. There’s only one reason for this: Quarterback Baker Mayfield.
When a team gives up over 650 yards and 52 points on the road against a ranked opponent, they will lose that game almost every single time… unless they have Mayfield at quarterback. Mayfield put on a show with five passing touchdowns, one rushing touchdown, and 598 yards passing. He did this despite a subpar performance by the run game and the worst game of the year for the offensive line. At one point, they allowed four sacks on four consecutive pass plays.
One of the reasons he may lose the Heisman this year is because of the Sooners’ embarrassing home loss to better-than-expected Iowa State. Mayfield had a good game (24/33, 306 yards, 2 TDs, 0 INTs) but obviously not enough. That game, like others they should have lost, was a direct result of Mike Stoops’ horrible defense.
Much is said about Mayfield’s competitiveness and heart. He has a swagger similar to Johnny Manziel. Those overshadow something that was noted by announcers during yesterday’s game: He is very similar to a right-handed, slightly slower Steve Young. He creates in and out of the pocket, isn’t afraid to take chances while not being reckless, and has a good arm. Some say he doesn’t have a “NFL arm,” which may be true, but for the college game he throws the deep ball nicely and is one of the most accurate passers college football has seen in years.
Unless TCU, West Virginia, or their competitor in the Big 12 Championship can beat them (don’t even mention Kansas), there’s no reason why he shouldn’t win the Heisman. The Iowa State loss may keep them out of the playoffs, but Mayfield is still the most worthy player in college football.
Will America-First News Outlets Make it to 2023?
Things are looking grim for conservative and populist news sites.
There’s something happening behind the scenes at several popular conservative news outlets. 2021 was bad, but 2022 is proving to be disastrous for news sites that aren’t “playing ball” with the corporate media narrative. It’s being said that advertisers are cracking down, forcing some of the biggest ad networks like Google and Yahoo to pull their inventory from conservative outlets. This has had two major effects. First, it has cooled most conservative outlets from discussing “taboo” topics like Pandemic Panic Theater, voter fraud, or The Great Reset. Second, it has isolated those ad networks that aren’t playing ball.
Certain topics are anathema for most ad networks. Speaking out against vaccines or vaccine mandates is a certain path to being demonetized. Highlighting voter fraud in the 2020 and future elections is another instant advertising death penalty. Throw in truthful stories about climate change hysteria, Critical Race Theory, and the border crisis and it’s easy to understand how difficult it is for America-First news outlets to spread the facts, share conservative opinions, and still pay the bills.
Without naming names, I have been told of several news outlets who have been forced to either consolidate with larger organizations or who have backed down on covering certain topics out of fear of being “canceled” by the ad networks. I get it. This is a business for many of us and it’s not very profitable. Those of us who do this for a living are often barely squeaking by, so loss of additional revenue can often mean being forced to make cuts. That means not being able to cover the topics properly. Its a Catch-22: Tell the truth and lose the money necessary to keep telling the truth, or avoid the truth and make enough money to survive. Those who have chosen survival simply aren’t able to spread the truth properly.
We will never avoid the truth. The Lord will provide if it is His will. Our job is simply to share the facts, spread the Gospel, and educate as many Americans as possible while exposing the forces of evil.
To those who have the means, we ask that you please donate. We have options available now, but there is no telling when those options will cancel us. We have our GivingFuel page. There have been many who have been canceled by PayPal, but for now it’s still an option. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
