The Big 12 also issued a public reprimand for Kansas players Joe Dineen, Dorance Armstrong Jr., Jeremiah Booker, and Daniel Wise for refusing to shake hands with Mayfield. Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby, in a statement: “The refusal of these student-athletes to shake an opponent's hand during the pre-game ceremony is contrary to tradition and inconsistent with common courtesy. The pre-game handshake among team captains is symbolic of good sportsmanship. This breach of protocol is not in keeping with the standards of the Big 12 Conference. I am grateful for the work of the Kansas administration and coaches to resolve this matter.”
