Jayhawk football players stripped of captaincy after handshake flapPosted: Updated:
Baker Mayfield wasn't the only one to lose his captaincy after the Oklahoma quarterback's antics following last weekend's blowout victory over Kansas.
Jayhawks coach David Beaty announced Tuesday that his captains -- Dorance Armstrong Jr., Daniel Wise and Joe Dineen Jr. -- were also stripped of their status. The trio refused to shake Mayfield's hand during the pregame coin-toss, which led to a game filled with vitriol.
Mayfield was hit several times after the whistle, once earning a personal foul on Kansas, while the Heisman Trophy front-runner was caught grabbing his crotch and cursing at the Jayhawks' bench.
Mayfield also will not start Saturday's regular-season finale for Oklahoma against West Virginia, though Beaty said his former captains will start against Oklahoma State.
