The Waco Tribune-Herald's pay wall is coming down later this week! That's good news for everyone!

"What on earth is Baylor going to do without Robert Griffin III?" wonders the USA Today, while also discussing Andrew Luck and Stanford. SBNation Dallas asks the same question, as well as whether Baylor will have a defense worth discussing this year. They preview the game on Sunday here-apparently Baylor is a "Metroplex" school, which is something I didn't know. John Morris talked to the Dallas Morning News about the new stadium, and about how the excitement around it is a "huge plus" for recruiting.

Sadly, as was covered here on this blog, Baylor will be without starting defensive tackle Kaeron Johnson, as the 5th-year senior is out for the season with a back injury that will require surgery. This means yet another question mark in a defense that, honestly, has more questions about it than the Riddler's suit (nerd alert).

In what could be billed as a "Battle of the Champions" NCAA champion Baylor Lady Bears will play the NAIA champion Oklahoma City University in an exhibition game on October 30th in the Ferrell center.

Baylor Rugby would be part of a new conference this year, but the Southwest Conference (their former league) has not approved their resignation yet. If and when that happens, Baylor would become a member of the Allied Rugby Conference.

Baylor Cross Country will open their season hosting the annual Bear Twilight Invitational at the Heart of Texas complex. Baylor's women's cross country is ranked 4th in the country, and the men's side is ranked 13th.
