Tuesday Daily Bears Report: Sport!

Ron Chenoy-US PRESSWIRE

I'm combing the interweb for Baylor-related news and I just don't know.

Today's big news is the WNBA draft- a topic that would fly under the radar for many fan bases, but one that is always a happy occasion for fans of Baylor's women's basketball program. Congratulations to Odyssey Sims, who was taken second overall in the draft last night by the Tulsa Shock. Odyssey will share a roster with former Notre Dame star Skylar Diggins.

Baseball's Matt Menard Named Big 12 Co-Newcomer of the Week - Baylor baseball's Matt Menard was named Big 12 Co-Newcomer of the Week, the league announced Monday. The honor is Menard's first of his career, the second such award for the Bears this season and fifth weekly accolade from the conference this year. Despite faltering on a regular basis this year, there are many young standouts on this team that should develop well in coming seasons. Fans should feel pretty good about the future of the program, even with the apparent plans by sidelined RHP Josh Pettitte to transfer to Rice at the end of the season.

Baseball Hosts Texas Southern on Tuesday - Baylor baseball returns to action on Tuesday with a 6:30 p.m. CT tilt against Texas Southern. The Bears (16-19) and Tigers (16-21) will meet for the ninth time and first time since 2008. Please, please win, guys.

Non-Newsy Fun Things From the Internet

2 Sleeves is gone. Long live 2 Sleeves.

Brown is an official school color. Get to it.

Andrew Billings is terrifyingly strong. For a Dia promotion next year, we should let the tug-of-war winner go against Billings and Oakman. 7 vs. 2 and my bet is on the two. I need to write that idea down, it could be a hit.

The Belt: Never Forget

11/23/2013. The day Baylor lost the College Football Belt to Oklahoma State. For those of you unfamiliar with the Belt, here's a primer that was written before last season. When OSU lost the belt to OU and OU was paired with Alabama in the Sugar Bowl, many of us assumed that the Belt would be lost to the SEC forever. However, Big Game Bob managed to pull off the miracle, and now Baylor has a chance to take it back- assuming Oklahoma manages to survive without a loss until this year's game.

Does Oklahoma lose the belt? If so, who do they lose it to? Do you see Baylor taking it back this season, and will it end the year in the Big 12's hands? Let's hear your predictions. After all, it's the offseason. We need something to keep us occupied.

The Hunger

Baylor football has tasted the blood of the old Big 12 powers. Art Briles is far from content after last season.
