They are.

Volleyball continues winning season

Jim Barnes really turned Baylor Volleyball around over the offseason. The team is now 9-2 on the year, and transfer outside hitter Andie Malloy is dominating in almost every match.

I feel you, bud. I'm not a small guy and some of them tower over me.

Also, a huge congratulations to Eric Anderson, a freshman cross country runner who won Big 12 Runner of the Week honors. Anderson is the seventh Baylor runner to ever be granted the title, and the first since 2012. Plus they made a sweet graphic for him.

Seastrunk signs with Carolina; working with practice squad

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/Panthers?src=hash">#Panthers</a> have signed rookie RB Lache Seastrunk to the practice squad. Redskins&#39; 6th-round pick led Big 12 in rushing last season at Baylor.</p>&mdash; Carolina Panthers (@Panthers) <a href="https://twitter.com/Panthers/status/511963746227716097">September 16, 2014</a></blockquote>

<script async src="//platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

It's good to see Seastrunk land somewhere where he can carve out a niche for himself. Carolina often struggles with depth at the running back position, and quality reps in practice could earn Lache a spot on the 53-man roster down the line.

Oh, but it gets better. Nick Pants did some investigating.

The One Man Wolfpack did in fact deliver the Dodge City Beer Sluggers their first loss of the season, and it was glorious.
