Bears Soccer

Soccer downs Detroit Mercy in season opener, 2-0. From Baylor Bears dot com.

“Any time you can go on the road and get a win it’s big for your team, especially in our opener. It was good to play a nice mix of rookies and veterans that missed or didn’t get as much playing time as we would’ve liked in the exhibitions. Our first score was a nice counter attack by Ashley York and Lauren Piercy for a breakaway goal. The set pieces we ran were good. We scored on a beautiful header by Lindsay Burns off a nice corner kick by Ashley York. We’ve been working hard on those set pieces and it’s nice to see us convert and we’re hoping we can convert more.” – Head Coach Paul Jobson

Ken Starr Not Leaving

Ken Starr plans to remain in Waco. Says university wanted him out. From WacoTrib.

“Frankly, the university determined that it wanted a break in the employment relationship, so I’ve accepted that decision and will, of course, honor the decision,”

Starr said he and his wife, Alice, will remain in Waco, and he plans to contribute to local education efforts. He said he has met with McLennan Community College President Johnette McKown and Waco Independent School District Superintendent Bonny Cain.

Starr also plans to give at least one guest lecture in a Baylor business school class this semester, at the request of a professor, he said. Starr will also work on religious liberty issues, both domestic and foreign, and has scheduled speaking engagements around the United States, he said.

Camp BU - We Are More

Bryce Cherry of the WacoTrib examines the new Baylor football motto: We are more.

Almost to a man, Baylor’s returning players feel like they have something to prove this year. Over the past many months, the nation has examined, dissected, discussed, vilified and in some cases written off the Baylor football program. Some in the media have seized the opportunity to question whether Baylor even belongs in the Big 12.

The returning players kind of feel like the only retribution is to go out and win.

That thinking being: “Fine? You took our coach, our athletic director? We’ll still show you. We’ll win the whole damn Big 12 again.”

Coach Grobe says all positions are open except for QB. From Bears Extra.

“At quarterback, it’s Seth because of ability and experience,” Grobe said. “As I look at it, that’s the one position on the football team where we know who our guy is for sure. Over the next week and a half or so, we’ll figure out who the starters and the backups are. But now it’s still pretty competitive.”

Baylor will hold its second intrasquad scrimmage of the summer Saturday morning at McLane Stadium. The scrimmage will be closed to the public and media.
