For the Baylor Bears, the RG3 party is over now. All the fun refreshments have been served, and now the check has come due. Time to pay up with going back to mediocrity. Well, they could be a little better than mediocre, but this won't be anything like the excitement of last season. Very few schools ever experience a Heisman trophy winner and #2 pick in the NFL Draft storybook … [Read more...] about #41 Baylor Bears: College Football 77 in 77
After initially announcing his intention to return to Baylor for his sophomore season, Quincy Miller had a change of heart and declared for the 2012 NBA Draft.

But they still haven't played anyone. The road win at Georgia Tech was nice, but the Yellow Jackets are down this year. Much like the rest of the ACC.

The Heisman discussion these days seems to comes down to Stanford's Andrew Luck versus Alabama's Trent Richardson. Other candidates on the outside looking in are USC's Matt Barkley, Houston's Case Keenum, the stats monster, and Montee Ball and Russell Wilson of the Wisconsin Badgers.

I was lucky enough to cover two college football bowl games last year in the lone star state. One of which was the Baylor Bears who got throttled by alma mater, the Illinois Fighting Illini in the Texas Bowl. The home field advantage wasn't enough as the Baylor Bears were dominated 38-14.
