Baker Mayfield Calls It "Ridiculous" That Buddy Hield Didn't Win Player Of The Year

Thursday afternoon, it was announced that Michigan State's Denzel Valentine - not Oklahoma's Buddy Hield - had won the AP's Player of the Year award in college basketball.Valentine had a fantastic season, leading MSU to a Big Ten Tournament title and a 2-seed in the NCAA Tournament, but there is certainly a faction of fans who believe that Hield, whose dominance has been on display the past two weeks, was the most deserving player.

Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield - who is probably a little biased - is one of them. Mayfield took to Twitter this afternoon to call it "ridiculous" that Valentine won the award over Hield. He even went as far as to say that Hield got "robbed."

Mayfield also noted that it's Hield's OU squad, not Valentine's MSU, that is still playing.

We imagine that Mayfield's opinion will be popular in Norman.
