You wouldn't know it to look at it, but the Baker Mayfield Heisman statue was erected in Norman. It's not a Cristiano-Ronaldo-level disaster, but it's certainly not Baker Mayfield's face either. My best guess right now is that the sculptor guessed what Heisman's winning quarterback will look like in about 35 years, and then he kind of left that vibe. I want to go with that theory because the only alternate explanation of what happened there is that the sculptor had never seen Mayfield in his life and just built a statue of a random man doing the pose iconic Heisman.
It's literally so unrecognizable that photos of Mayfield standing next to the statue would, without context, never be interpreted as a guy standing next to his own likeness. See for yourself here and have fun:

Speculation about the actual inspiration for this statue's face (we can't, in good faith, assume it was Mayfield) is raging on Twitter – comparisons range from Always Sunny's Glenn Howerton to the late James Dean of 2 Fast 2 Furious' Cole Hauser at the T-1000 from Terminator 2 (Sequel villains? I can't even get the originals. That's hard).

Much of this probably could have been avoided if the statue included a helmet, but it seems to imply that Mayfield was playing a football game without a helmet. Part of the problem seems to be with a headband that is carved into the statue which, unfortunately, hasn't really been seen in the photos.
tips:- check my blog Baker Mayfield’s mood isn’t going be improved by his statue at Oklahoma.
Oklahoma is erecting statues to all of its Heisman Trophy winners, so QB Cardinals Kyler Murray will be next on the list to have an effigy built. At this point, the best-case scenario for Murray would be a vague likeness. As long as his statue doesn't appear to qualify for AARP benefits while playing college football, it will be a win. Mayfield won football's most prestigious award in 2017, and Murray followed it up with a back-to-back for Oklahoma in 2018.
A plan that covers your life and critical illnesses
Mayfield is currently on the Browns' roster, but is not expected to stay with the franchise beyond this year. He averaged over 4,000 passing yards per season during his three years with the Sooners.
