    Not looking forward to playing baylor.

    Your defense is usually pretty decent so it probably won't get anywhere near 60 but typically Briles will get to 60 then milk clock. Usually to get much beyond that it takes a kickoff return (ISU 2013) or a run play finds a crease. He really does try to avoid running it up.

    Not looking forward to playing baylor.

    I have yet to see ANYTHING other than SportsByBrooks and his extremely flimsy case. If it's so "documented"... produce some shred of it. There were also rumors of Lyles involvement with Dez and Shaun Lewis so the whole glass houses thing applies too.

    Not looking forward to playing baylor.

    The early long bomb to Corey Coleman and the potential for crossing routes to rub off man coverage when BU went to empty sets is probably what led to the cushion. Without adequate replacements for Colvin and Lynn the Sooners didn't appear as confident in their coverage across the board as last...

    Thanks for the heads up. Good luck to you guys in Austin and good luck in your other remaining non-Baylor games.

    Committee is charged with considering league championships and head to head as key criteria. If it's even close we've got them.

    Not looking forward to playing baylor.

    I don't remember ESPN but I remember a baseless claim from SportsByBrooks trying to throw crap against the wall. U of H bought a legitimate recruiting service (where Lyles used to work) when Briles was there but that stuff is common and altogether different than what Lyles did with Oregon...

    1- No relevant reply = no decent argument 2- We win out we'll jump them. Not worried at all. The committee is charged with ranking the best body of work RIGHT NOW. Baylor beating Tcu was being compared with TCU beating OU, WV, and Minnesota. Baylor blowing out OU and theoretically beating...

    Not looking forward to playing baylor.

    Dixon- Kiffin commit found less options after Lane bolted for USC and stayed in his hometown. We lucked into him as UT had backed off and was his #2 initially. Seastrunk- Lyles delivered him AWAY from us. He transferred closest to home so he could try a waiver to avoid sitting out a year as...

    Not looking forward to playing baylor.

    Lets see according to Scout... 2008? 3 Star Kendall Wright- Others wanted as a DB and BU gave him the chance at WR 4 Star RG3- Others wanted as a WR or DB and BU offered as QB. Overlooked as a recruit. Everyone else was a 2 or 3 star. Nothing out of the ordinary as 12 or 13 of them were 2...

    Not looking forward to playing baylor.

    Year 7 is fast???? Very true You have to be kidding me. Name ONE touted recruit coming out of HS that was sketchy in the early years- RG3- Wanted to play for Briles and most places wanted him as a DB or WR Wright- Wanted to play WR and most wanted him as DB Terrance Williams- 2 star...

    2014-2015 Big XII Bowl Tie Ins

    Hopefully my follow up question is asked to our AD next Tuesday on the air. It specifically asks about a non-champ.

    2014-2015 Big XII Bowl Tie Ins

    I don't like the fact the B1G isn't on our slate, lots of easy wins we're missing out on. I do like the locations of our bowls. Getting to Florida is easier than San Diego, Memphis is easier than NY, and New Orleans is easier than Arizona.

    2014-2015 Big XII Bowl Tie Ins

    I went ahead and sent in a question to our AD's radio segment in Waco and he said that the provision extended to us as well. If the Big 12 champion isn't in the playoff then another access bowl will take them if the Sugar is a semifinal game that year. I'm going to send in a follow up to it...

    2014-2015 Big XII Bowl Tie Ins

    I don't have a link on it but I am pretty sure that in years where the host bowl is in the playoff that the other bowls have to take the teams that would have been in the Rose, Sugar, or Orange otherwise. So my guess is the Cotton, Chik-Fil-A, or Fiesta would collectively handle those teams...

    Who are they?

    Steele is now the go-to profanity filter on some Baylor sites.

    Who are they?

    CowboyEthics- There is NO connection between Briles and Lyles. UH purchased a recruiting service from his former employer, that is ALL that Brooks or anyone else has dug up. Nothing connecting BU, and no steady stream of blue chip recruits out of nowhere. Most of BU's key players were 3 star...

    Don't Care For the Baptists

    1- It's just reality on most sites. I was given some less than ideal treatment here, it just comes with the territory on an opponent's board. 2- Baylorfans.com isn't known for being the most rational BU board. BearsTruth.com is a paysite but tends to be more even keeled and knowledgeable...

    700- Bears

    Our ADept made us by them in summer if we were going through them. BU fans went through other means for either better seats or a later decision.

    Congrats on the win in Austin

    I don't think our defense will. Frankly our own improvement is enough to prevent that but as good as OSU's team is I think even the diehards here at OP will agree it isn't nearly as potent as the weeden or robinson years on offense this year. Offensively it comes down to turnovers and red...

    Congrats on the win in Austin

    Agree. Both are playing well.
