Welcome to Baylor University, where all the relevant sports news happens at one time and does its best to drown your blogrunners in information. Yesterday brought updates in football, baseball, basketball, softball, and others.
In-Season News: MBB, WBB, Baseball, Softball
Men's basketball revealed their postseason uniforms today, and ODB had quite a bit to say in the official reactions thread. I think they're beautiful.

MBB takes on Kansas State at 1:30 tomorrow in Manhattan to close out the regular season.
Tournament play for the Lady Bears begins tomorrow. They will take on the winner of Kansas State vs. Kansas at 1:30 p.m. The game will be televised on Fox Sports Southwest.
Baseball opens up a three-game series against No. 4 Cal State Fullerton tomorrow evening at 6:30 p.m. at Baylor Ballpark. The second game is on Saturday afternoon at 1 p.m. The team will give away posters commemorating the 500th game on the field to the first 2000 fans in attendance.
Softball trounced Louisiana Tech last night at Getterman Stadium in Waco. The 10-1 victory over the Lady Bulldogs elevated the Lady Bears to 17-4 on the season.
Baylor softball player Kaitlyn Thumann is hitting .630 over her last eight games. Wow.— Shehan Jeyarajah (@ShehanJeyarajah) March 7, 2014
That's pretty incredible. Keep it up, Kaitlyn.
Spring Football News
The first of several spring scrimmages was held yesterday in the shadow of McLane Stadium. I'll let all of you peruse the stats for yourselves, but all reports say that Corey Coleman had a breakout day with the help of stellar passing from Bryce Petty. Tre'von Armstead had a 19-yard reception at tight end, and Brian Nance had four tackles.

#SpringBU Scrimmage TACKLES: Orion Stewart 8, Taylor Young 7, Patrick Levels 5. SACKS: Javonte Magee 2 (-15). #GangGreen D— Baylor Football (@BUFootball) March 7, 2014
Reports say that LaQuan McGowan is currently practicing with the first team offensive line, and that he continues to show extraordinary athleticism for his size. If he or Jarrell Broxton can perform to a respectable level and Spencer Drango makes a full recovery, our offensive line should be well-stocked for 2014.
The Best of the Rest
Schaefer Named Big 12 Rider of the Month for Fences - Baylor Bears Official Athletic Site - BaylorBears.com
Baylor's Samantha Schaefer was named one of four Big 12 Riders of the Month Wednesday for equitation over fences during the month of February.
I wonder what Kaz could do with a horse.
Campus should be a ghost town next week as most students head out for spring break, but spring football and March Madness have only just begun. Hopefully this will affect Kansas State's ability to bring a crowd in Manhattan.
We hear so much about draft boards and projections, but few people realize just how much work goes into the scouting and eventual drafting and signing of college athletes. Thanks to the Mothership for the excellent longform.
