Bear Cub Tennis

Baylor Cub Tennis is back for it’s fourth year. The Bears host the first youth clinic of the season on September 16. From Baylor Bears dot com:

The youth clinic, offered to children under the age of 11, provides the opportunity to learn basic tennis skills from Baylor players and staff.

“The Baylor Cub Tennis program has been a very successful addition to our home events over the past three years,” head coach Joey Scrivano said. “Baylor fans and families have a great opportunity to interact with each other, while their kids get to be active and have fun learning a sport that they can play for a lifetime.”

The clinics will be held on select fall dates and one hour prior to home matches in the spring dual-match season. Kids in attendance at eight or more sessions are eligible to win a free Babolat tennis racket, valued at $30.

Tulsa's take on the Baylor offense will test Ohio State

Christopher Jason of SBNation’s LandGrantHolyLand, taking a look at this Saturday’s Tulsa vs. Ohio State game, takes an even closer look at Baylor’s spread offense.

Tulsa coach Philip Montgomery was Art Briles’ main man at Baylor, calling the shots as the offensive coordinator from 2012-2014, after serving time as the co-offensive coordinator for the prior six seasons. As one would assume, the Tulsa offense has Baylor written all over them.

Like the Bears, Montgomery wants to play a chess-match with the defensive coordinator at a blazing tempo. Tulsa is going to run the ball when the defense gives them the look they want, or check to a quick pass — typically a screen — if they have numbers. They’re going to want to put pressure on the defense in a couple of different ways, whether it be by going horizontally or vertically, both in the running and the passing game. If the defense is not properly set after a big play, they’ll catch you napping and strike it deep.

Scandal Video

About nine months ago, KWTX TV launched an investigation into the allegations against Art Briles and Baylor of improperly handling sexual assault claims. Here are the first two of perhaps many videos to follow reporting on that investigation.
