Today is the last day of finals for the students of this fine university. For those of y'all who haven't finished yet, stay strong, summer is coming.
For those of you who are reading this and never have to worry about finals again because you graduated from Baylor way back in XXXX, congratulations! Graduating means you passed all the necessary courses. If you aren't affiliated in Baylor in any way, congratulations on clicking on the link from Twitter? If that's you, welcome to ODB; we like sports, especially football. Blazin' fast, ludicrous speed football that scores lots of points. You'll like it here (unless you're an aggy).

But they play eight SEC PAWLLL teams, so that's the same as playing nine Big 12 teams, right?
Und so weiter und so fort
That's German for "and so on and so forth" if you were curious.
SB Nation has draft grades up. The Texans' selection of Clowney clearly started them off on the right foot and helped them earn an A overall. Washington earned a C+ despite getting steals like OT Morgan Moses and RB Lache Seastrunk. The Cowboys earned themselves a B rating with a defensive-heavy draft. Other teams with former Baylor players: Browns - B-, Bills - C+, Titans - B+, Packers - A, Chargers - B+. I'm sure I missed one, so correct me in the comments.
Speaking of former Baylor players... Josh Gordon could be suspended for 2014, per report.
A way-too-early 2015 mock draft has been drafted (pun intended) by the gents of SBN. They have Bryce going seventh to the Buccaneers. I'd, uh...prefer somewhere else for him, to be honest.
