Yesterday marked the official close of the 2013-2014 Baylor Athletics season. What a season it was. Big 12 Championships in Football, Women's Basketball (x2), Men's Tennis (x2), and Women's Tennis (x2). Deep post-season runs in almost every sport. A new stadium rose up on the banks of the Brazos. In the indelible words of Frank Sinatra, it was a very good year.
