There was a plethora of controversial calls in the Baylor-WVU game on Saturday. However, West Virginia received the spoils for one of most controversial calls of the game.
As many know by now, fans rushed the field at McLane Stadium after freshman kicker Chris Callahan nailed a game-winner as time expired to beat TCU on Saturday. This sparked a bit of controversy, asking whether fans should have rushed the field despite being the favorite heading into the game.
Baylor football is in its golden age. Right now, fans are watching the best football program in school history. For any fan, it’s hard not to watch the Bears in every game they play.
Baylor football is in its golden age, something this program has not seen before. With one Heisman winner and a Big 12 championship under its belt, Baylor Nation should not expect this excitement to go away any time soon.
Coming off of a third-straight bowl game appearance and second straight bowl win, Baylor football is still hungry for something more: a Big 12 Championship.
Baylor has never won a Big 12 Championship, but this season I think that will change. From top to bottom, this could be the best roster the Bears have ever fielded with head coach Art Briles at the helm.
Less than 48 hours before the 4-1 thrashing of Real Madrid, it was announced that Borussia Dortmund midfielder Mario Götze would join rival team Bayern München. Immediately, fans began to call him Judas and burn his jerseys.
During mid-to-late February, a certain air begins to come over the sports world. Everyone feels it and there’s no doubt to its source: March Madness. Or as I call it, March Sadness.
Before filling out my bracket this year, I watched hours of analysis of ESPN’s so-called “experts” and gained as much insight as I could. I thought I knew what I was doing. I didn’t. I really can’t emphasize my wrongness enough. Here’s what I got:
Considering the Bears’ lofty preseason ranking of No. 19 in the country, it’s difficult to see this season as nothing short of bittersweet.
Sure, it’s fantastic for head coach Scott Drew and seniors Pierre Jackson and A.J. Walton to go out on top in with an NIT championship, but the NIT was never the goal for this group of Bears.
Anyone that has been to a Baylor Lady Bears basketball game has seen the video that plays before player introductions. Head coach Kim Mulkey stands before her players and talks about the expectation that this team will repeat as National Champions.
Having a defense is important to win games. One may think that it’s common sense. There are many examples even throughout Baylor Athletics that support this notion.
Last season, Baylor football played West Virginia early in the season. ESPN was basically giving Gino Smith the Heisman after torching Baylor’s defense for 656 yards and eight touchdowns. However, ESPN didn’t notice the fact that Baylor scored 63 points. Senior quarterback Nick Florence had 581 yards for five touchdowns.
