Shehan Jeyarajah has a good look at Brian Nance on

Nance lives in Temple so his kids can attend the good schools in the area and be near his girlfriend’s parents. Of course, that means he has to wake up at 4:35 a.m. and drive 40 miles to Waco to make morning workouts – and he’s done it since his freshman year in 2013.

Sean Cordy of SicEm365 (free) explores Chris Platt’s work playing both sides of the ball:

The latest to get his shoulder tapped is Baylor’s own Chris Platt who Matt Rhule called a potential second or third-round pick in next year’s NFL draft as a defensive back despite his two years in Waco exclusively at receiver. That’s a bold prediction that boosts confidence of Platt’s ability to play a position he hasn’t touched in four years since high school.

Hunter Cooke of TexasHSFootball discusses Baylor’s offense:

“I think it’s going to be much like coach Rhule said,” said Nixon at the THSCA Coach’s Convention. “With the personnel that we have, you’re going to see a lot of similar things on offense that Baylor did before, coach Briles and the staff, obviously they were a really explosive offense, Baylor was known as an offensive football team, we’re going to have some of those same spread concepts. We like to change our personnel and be able to line up with two tight ends, you know, and a fullback as well.”

Peter will have a Game of Thrones review soon, and we’ll have some more football previews this week.
