So Baylor had another, final scrimmage on Friday afternoon on the turf at Floyd Casey Stadium that I had no idea about. Unlike with scrimmages past, the official write-up does not include a full report on the stats from the scrimmage, so you'll have to watch the video to get a more complete view of what happened.
When asked why he chose to have the team practice on the field today, Briles revealed a bit of his excitement over his future home on the Brazos:
"I think it's real important," he said. "The practice field is the practice field. Out here, you can see the sidelines, you can see the sidelines, there's a little bit of a crown on this field that we don't have over there. I think it's good for all of us to get out here, and it kind of gets the guys hyped, especially the new guys."
When the new riverfront Baylor Stadium is completed for the 2014 season, Briles said, "we'll go over there at least once a week during the season, maybe more."
That stadium is just one of the reasons we don't have to worry about losing Art Briles. Other fanbases don't understand how much the support our administration has given the football program means to him. I don't think he would have taken the job initially if he wasn't convinced it would happen, and I don't think he'd still be here if progress hadn't already been made.
The video itself is below the jump.
