Things are a bit short today, due to my computer occasionally deciding that it's not actually supposed to be connected to the internet. I'll hopefully be back to my more verbose ways tomorrow.

Baylor Football is at the University of Texas this weekend, and are looking to stop a 2-loss skid by defeating UT for the third year in a row. David Ubben has a midseason report on Baylor that's not exactly optimistic. Despite all this, Baylor's picked up a verbal commitment from Vequan Jones, a wide receiver from Wylie East having a tremendous year. This just adds to Baylor's new depth at receiver, with the verbal commitment from Fort Worth Southwest's Robbie Rhodes.

Baylor Volleyball looks to pick up a second conference win tonight against 13-6, 2-4 TCU during a "Gold Out." The first 500 attendees will receive a free gold tee-shirt, and free things are fantastic!

Baylor Men's Basketball is in Kansas City today for the Big 12 Basketball Media Day! Head coach Scott Drew, along with Pierre Jackson, J'mison Morgan, A.J. Walton and Isaiah Austin will be facing the media today, as the opening of basketball season draws even nearer.

Brittney Griner is at the ESPN studio complex today, giving interviews on SportsCenter and a variety of radio stations. You can see her, Elena Delle-Donne, and Skylar Diggins on SportsCenter at 11:40 AM, CT. Follow @BaylorWBB for more information.

Baylor Baseball will play 30 games at home and three at Minute Maid Park in Houston, the team announced yesterday in the release of their 2013 schedule. Those Houston games sound like the perfect opportunity for a road trip, if you ask me!

Baylor Softball lost to the National Professional Fastpitch All-Stars 8-0 last night in Waco, but despite the loss, Coach Glenn Moore feels confident about the Lady Bears as they prepare for the regular season. The Lady Bears next play in Waco in February.

Baylor University Athletics released a new 5-year plan yesterday, detailing the development and achievements that various Bear programs hope to accomplish. This includes new track, baseball, and soccer facilities, in addition to the 2014 completion date of the new riverside stadium.

As always, if I've missed anything, let me know!
