I took a day off from doing the Daily Bears Report because we had quite a few things going on around here, and it ended up being the highest traffic day in ODB history. Imagine that.
Most of that traffic was due to the outstanding work done by Thermhere yesterday in his statistical post and because I want to keep that at the forefront going into tomorrow's game, here are a few links to what happened yesterday on ODB just in case those stories fall off the main screen for anyone.
- First we have Therm's excellent statistical preview for the game. Read it. Know it. Love it.
- We are still accepting applications for the first annual ODB Ball So Hard University Team. We still need offensive and defensive linemen in particular.
- We talked last night about how Mike Sherman has been fired as the head coach at Texas A&M. I'll have a few more links about that below because it's pretty big news. Whatever you think about A&M, that's probably the second-best job open right now and it will be an influential hire across college football.
- Derek Haas penned just about the best treatment of the Baylor fan experience I've ever seen yesterday on Grantland.
- Finally, I did an email exchange with the guys over at Burnt Orange Nation about the game tomorrow. They posted it as a full article and rather than cut and paste it over here, I'll just link to them.
Now on to the links, and I'm using the clippings tool again because it's JUST SO EASY.

If anything else pops up, I'll do the normal routine and either update this post or fanshot it for all to see. We're about 26 hours away from kickoff tomorrow. Are you ready?
UPDATE: RGIII is supposedly going on the Jim Rome show today. Rome has been pretty outspoken in the past about the whole "Baylor = no Heisman" thing, so it will be interesting to see how he reacts to having Robert on the show.
