Thoughts on the Oklahoma Drill; should we be doing this pregame given the limited depth on the team? Does it actually intimidate anyone?— DS.PumpkinSpiceLatte (@JBLajzer) September 20, 2017
I’m old school and like a little physicality during warm ups. It’s only full contact 1 v 1 for one play. Of course a freak accident could happen, but it could also happen during any drill or even during the Bear Walk. CMR said in his weekly press conference that if they do it this week it will come from the players. He also said it’s about physicality and team unity, but didn’t mention it’s to intimidate the opponent.
Yeah assuming we win this weekend are we in the big 12 championship race?— #MyTeam (@MyTeamBU) September 20, 2017
Wk 1-3 we've seen improvement as a team. Which individual player/s would you say is most improved from Wk 1-3? One on D and one on O?— NickOso (@heightofidiocy) September 20, 2017
On defense Clay Johnston has continued to improve and play at an elite level week by week. According to the Big 12 statistical leaders, he is 3rd in average tackles per game and 2nd in tackles for loss. Offensively, I like Chris Platt’s big play ability. With Terence coming back this week, hopefully there will be a boost in the running game which would open up more opportunities for Platt.
Speaking of Terence:

About how many Big 12 games will we win this year?— Connor Mighell (@cmigbear) September 20, 2017
We will beat Kansas and Texas (see what I did there), and have a legitimate shot at ISU. Tech and KSU could be wins depending on our development and health. TCU might be an upset as it’s the last game and we should have a good grasp of the O and D playbooks and implementation. So, I’ll say 3. I hope I’m wrong and we will have more as we’ll be one of, if not the most, improved teams in the conference.
Do you think the Fed is still on track to raise rates 25bps in December?— Angry Grant Teaff (@AngryGrantTeaff) September 20, 2017
Hold on while I do some calculations.
Which player coming back from injury will make the most noticeable contribution for the rest of the season?— Weston Mighell (@westonmighell) September 20, 2017
Grayland Arnold. As much as we need Terence’s help in the running game, we need his help in coverage.
Do you think this would be the black out game?— G-dubbbbb5⃣ (@GradyWoolls16) September 20, 2017
What is this “black out” you speak of?
Although there are no moral victories, how close would Baylor have to lose to consider the game a "moral victory"/step in right direction?— Sir William (@will_horner) September 20, 2017
For me (if we lose) it will be more about how we play than the final score. Did our offense take some positive steps forward? Is our defense continuing to get stronger? Was there growth with certain players and in key positions?
Best OU player not named Baker Mayfield?— Sir William (@will_horner) September 20, 2017
BNT 3 questions for 1 answer.
Is this: https://t.co/AVlEMApsEQ the best hype video for a game ever? Yes or yes?— Will DeWitt (@w_dewitt) September 20, 2017
Seeing that the 2 options to answer are yes and yes...yes.
Would be amazing to win this weekend, claim a big 12 after all these losses. These are the kinda games than can change a team forever— C H R I S B Y R D (@LittleByrdEee) September 20, 2017
What is, yes?
Looking beyond this weekend, does the upset by Vandy give hope for a BU victory over K-state?— Russell Scott Gorman (@RScottGorman) September 20, 2017
Defense has been on the field for too long in last 3 games. Do you think we will get more time of possession this week? If so, why?— Russell Scott Gorman (@RScottGorman) September 20, 2017
With Terence back, hopefully we will be more effective running the ball. If we are, it will get us more TOP.
Over or under for 3 sacks on Mayfield? And what is your prediction for turnover ratio this week?— GOLD REAPER (@_REALMC) September 20, 2017
Over. With Ogor starting to come into his own rushing the passer, the staff should make adjustments to utilize him more against OU. As for the turnover margin, I think this will be a key in having a chance to win the game. It will need to be, and this might sound impossible (but it’s not), +3. Here’s a reminder of what Ogor can do, while being held no less:
Chances that a 1-11 season kills our recruiting class?— Erik Medina (@erikmedinamd) September 20, 2017
Not much this season. The staff has probably made every recruit committed to or seriously thinking about Baylor aware of the situation. They have also specifically recruited to the players strengths and how they would fit in to the program. Another selling point for many recruits is the idea of potentially playing immediately. Although we aren’t a hot team at the moment, we’re still a hot brand.
Name some unsung guys on the team who are not getting a lot of press but who are doing their jobs pretty well despite the losses?— Stephen Walker (@jesussavedme94) September 20, 2017
Even though he’s a single digit guy and been pretty consistent each game, Ira Lewis doesn’t get the fanfare. Another guy who has real potential is true freshman, Harrison Hand. You can click on their names for stats per game.
Three game in which position is the greatest need for the 2018 recruiting class?— Quintin Outland (@BigMix75) September 20, 2017
With Anu graduating, we really need a QB to commit to provide depth and build for the future. Looking at you Gerry Bohanon.

What happened to Quan Jones? Haven't noticed him in first 3 games and didn't hear about him being hurt. Maybe I'm just out of the loop— Andrew Tinsley (@andrew_tinsley) September 20, 2017
Quan is injured.
If you were to make an all-star Baylor football roster of players 2008-17, who would be your 22?— Scott Visy (@scottvisy) September 20, 2017
Good question, but for the sake of time I’ll give you who I would pick to build the offense around and who I would pick to build the defense around. Offense - RGIII and Defense - Andrew Billingsly. I would be interested to see others respond below with their all-star teams like this one from @ScottyRossSwing on twitter:
Might as well get one for the heck of it regardless.
Well, that’s it for this week. Other questions or comments can be left below.
