Daily Bears Reports 4/19: New President, Football, and Hoops

Lots of great draft profiles

NCAA Football: Baylor at West Virginia Ben Queen-USA TODAY Sports

President:

Phillip Ericksen of the Waco Tribune-Herald had a detailed write up of Dr. Livingstone’s hire:

Linda A. Livingstone, the current dean at the George Washington University School of Business, was formally named Baylor University’s 15th president on Tuesday.

To me, it seems like Baylor made an excellent hire. Dr. Livingstone is well-qualified and has an impressive resume. But in 2017, there are a lot of terrible takes. This was my response:

Football:

Tony Adame of Baylor247 has a good story available on Tion Sells:

It all works just fine for Sells, and for a Baylor team in desperate need of leadership and experience in the defensive secondary -- both things Sells can provide.

Matt Rhule spoke after Baylor’s most recent practice:

Daniel Valente of Steelers Depot has an awesome look at Shock Linwood:

At the next level, Linwood will not enjoy the benefit of being the fastest player on the field but he does offer potential as a change of pace back. Linwood would be a great asset to substitute in when a team is facing an exhausted defense. A third down back duty for Linwood cannot be ruled out as well, as even though the running back only grabbed a few receptions during his career, it was not because of bad hands, rather Baylor’s scheme did not make him a primary receiving option.

Brady Lunt of Fan Sided had this on K.D. Cannon:

KD Cannon has an intriguing skill-set. His speed is dangerous and makes him a threat to take it home each down he’s on the field. He’s tough, both physically and mentally, and will likely continue to get better in the NFL.

Bob Condotta of the Seattle Times listed Seth Russell as a possibility for the Seahawks:

Seth Russell, Baylor: Another dual threat (1,240 rushing yards and 20 TDs in Baylor career), he has had some significant injuries — most notably a neck fracture in 2015 — that could mean he has to go to the free-agent route.
