1.16.2012 Daily Bears Report: Showdown in Lawrence and Weekly Honors for MBB

New, 13 comments

Today's the day, ladies and gents. Tonight our #4-ranked men's basketball team takes on #10 Kansas in Lawrence. This will be the biggest test yet of our squad, which has run its season-opening winning streak to 17-0, and the first chance for Baylor to knock off a top-ten team.

Baylor fans are probably expecting our team to win the game tonight, but I want to remind you that Kansas is far from an easy place to win. As of this writing, Baylor is actually a 6 or 7 point underdog depending on which book you like. This will probably not be a walk in the park. Though Kansas is down this season from their typical level of talent, they have a good coach (as much as I hate to say it) and are still one of the best teams in our league. And they are playing at home against a team they've targeted all season. If Baylor wins this game, which will be on ESPN tonight starting at 8:30, that will easily be our biggest win to date.

Finally a little football news from SBNation's own Bill Connelly.
There is a rumor going around that Baylor will receive a commitment from a QB recruit currently committed to another school. No, I don't know who it is. Yes, I have been trying to find out for two days. All I know is that there was supposedly a QB recruit of some note on campus this weekend for an official visit and the staff doesn't want anyone to know his name. This is not unusual, particularly for a player committed to another school, at least not for Baylor.

If I hear anything I can share or any news breaks, as always I will bring it to your attention tout de suite (did you like that? I'm trying to class the blog up a little.).

In the comments, give me your predictions for Baylor vs. Kansas tonight! 8:30 PM on ESPN!
