#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.

Baylor QB Robert Griffin III: Darkhorse Heisman Candidate

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.

But what about Robert Griffin III from Baylor? I think the dual-threat QB deserves much more consideration.

The Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award is presented annually to the nation’s best college quarterback and is the oldest national quarterback award. The 2011 Davey O’Brien winner will be announced on The Home Depot College Football Awards airing Thursday, Dec. 8 on ESPN.

The three O’Brien finalists are Luck, Keenum and RG3.

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!
