1.03.2014 Lunchtime Links: Art Briles ain't going nowhere

Christian Petersen

It's been an interesting Friday already with huge news for Baylor fans.

A few hours and over 2,000 retweets later, this tweet still says just about everything Baylor fans wanted to head into the weekend:

Yesssssssssssss...  I even brought out my favorite post to celebrate.

Anyway, in other news around ODB, I noticed this morning that we're about to pass 4 million historic pageviews, another amazing milestone.  If trends hold, it will happen some time in the next week.  That makes our trajectory...

1 million: ~15 months
2 million: ~7 months
3 million: > 2 months
4 million: < 2 months

That's growth, baby!

Also, just in case anyone was curious, the most-viewed posts in ODB in 2013:
1.  The Waco Riverfront Development -- July 1, 2013.
2. Andrew Billings is hella-strong -- March 23, 2013.
3. Gary Patterson calls out Briles, Dixon -- November 30, 2013
4. Chrome Gold Helmet = Yessir. -- January 19, 2013
5. Baylor pulling the tarp for OU -- October 30, 2013
6. Now We're Here -- Season Recap -- December 10, 2013

I went to 6 so Ted's video could make the cut.  There's a fairly large grouping after that, mostly made up of recent posts.  You guys know how much I love looking at the numbers.
