Oklahoma is getting steamrolled right now by Alabama. The Crimson Tide lead 28-7 early in the second quarter, and the game has been even more of a blowout than the score indicates.

Kyler Murray has struggled mightily tonight, though he did lead the Sooners to a touchdown just now. However, his overall performance has been quite poor.

As a result, everybody is making the same joke on Twitter. Just search "Kyler Murray baseball" and you'll see dozens of people saying this game is going to make Murray choose the minor leagues over a shot at the NFL.

Here are a few of the tweets:

Murray was a first-round pick of the Oakland Athletics in June. He made a commitment to pursue baseball with the organization in 2019, but has been teasing throughout the fall that he might consider taking a shot at the NFL. Right now, he doesn't look like NFL-ready. As Yahoo's Pete Thamel writes, NFL scouts will be poring over the game tape from tonight when they ultimately evaluate Murray.

Oklahoma and Alabama are playing right now on ESPN.

The winner will face Clemson for the national title on January 7.
