Tevin Reese cleared for Fiesta Bowl

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Moments ago, Tevin Reese tweeted something that, if we're reading it correctly, would come as incredibly welcome new for Baylor fans everywhere.

Just a little while ago, Tevin Reese issued the following Tweet that immediately set the Baylor Twittersphere ablaze:

While the tweet doesn't exactly confirm that he has indeed been cleared for full-contact practice by both doctors and the coaching staff and will be participating in Baylor's first trip to a BCS bowl game in the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl, it is more news than we've had on this front in quite some time and would be HUGE news for an offense that struggled somewhat in his absence.

One of the enormous benefits from this news coming so early in the "bowl season" is that Reese will be able to participate in the lion's share of practices to prepare for the Fiesta Bowl. He has nearly three full weeks to get his body back into game-ready shape. Even a 75% Tevin Reese is a dangerous weapon in the hands of Bryce Petty and opposite Antwan Goodley; if he is at or near 100% after making use of these next few weeks to prepare, it's watch out Knights of Central Florida. If you're a Baylor fan, you're salivating at the possibilities.

Reese, announced yesterday as a selection to the All-Big 12 First Team, appeared in eight games for the Bears, going down with a dislocated wrist against Oklahoma. He underwent surgery on the wrist and sat out the games against Texas Tech, Oklahoma State, TCU, and Texas. He showed his brilliance in the #1 receiver role, a role many questioned he had the ability to play.

Reese has 33 catches for 824 yards with 8 touchdowns. A huge game in Glendale would put him over 1,000 receiving yards for the season.

UPDATE: Then there was this, in response to Glasco Martin:
