#41 Baylor Bears: College Football 77 in 77

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 season, so 2012 won’t be much like 2011.

But I sincerely hope they retain that awesome paint finish on their helmets from the bowl game. I forgot what that’s specifically called, but you know what I mean. It was really cool.

College Football 77 in 77: #43 Baylor Bears

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. But that game could have been much closer than it seems; at least for the first two periods. QB Robert Griffin III consistently had receivers open, he just couldn’t connect with them. They were open, but bad timing. It could have been due to: him, his WRs routes, the Illini pressure generated by Corey Liuget (the San Diego Chargers 1st round pick) and company; or a combination of all these things.

Had they made a few of these plays early, they would have stayed with Illinois for the first half and changed the entire complexion of the game. Something to think about in 2011 moving forward. If they fix it, it’ll further balance the O and take the pressure off the D.

Either way, one thing’s for sure- they have some scorching hot cheerleaders (here’s some video proof). Any time these nice Baptist girls want to act on those impure thoughts, get sinful and debauched, shoot me a sext!

Texas Forever! Illini vs. Baylor: Brutally Honest Bowl Game Preview

Like they say in Dillon, deep in the heart of Texas, “Clear Eyes. Full Hearts. CAN’T LOSE!”  Yes, the Illinois Fighting Illini best adopt the philosophy of fictional football Coach Erik Taylor and his East Dillon Lions in the dramatic television series “Friday Night Lights.”

The Illini have their work cut out for them, only 1.5 point underdogs, but they’re playing in enemy territory, taking on a school that’s fired up about their first bowl appearance in 17 years, at a stadium less than three hours drive from campus.

Indeed Lambeau Field, home of the Green Bay Packers, won’t be the only NFL stadium where a local team in blue and orange is surrounded by an adversarial crowd in green and gold. Reliant Stadium, home of the Houston Texans, and college basketball’s next Final Four, will have a decidedly pro-Baylor slant when the Texas Bowl kicks off Wednesday night at 5.

“Texas forever, Street.”
