Tennant groggily gets out of bed, downs a glass of water in an attempt to soothe his headache (yelling a lot is not good for the yet, it turns out), and makes coffee.
Good morning, er afternoon, er whatever time it is, I don't care. Let's look at the polls.
Hey, Baylor is still in the Top Ten of the Coaches Poll! Ahead of TCU! And then there are Ole Miss and Mississippi State in there...? Yeah, this poll is useless.
|2||Ohio State (32)||Alabama||Alabama|
|3||Alabama (4)||Ohio State||Ohio State|
|5||Notre Dame||Michigan||Notre Dame|
|6||Iowa||Notre Dame||Oklahoma State|
|9||Michigan State||Ole Miss||Baylor|
|16||Florida State||Bowling Green||North Carolina|
|20||Wisconsin||Oklahoma State||Florida State|
|24||USC||Mississippi State||Mississippi State|
|25||Ole Miss (T-25)||Washington||Tennessee|
|25||Mississippi State (T-25)|
Overall, the drop wasn't that bad. S&P+ and Massey rankings are still holding strong with Baylor in the Top Ten. The AP Poll comes out later today, and we already know that some have Baylor outside of their Top 25... Anyway, ignoring the idiots, the real question is what will happen to the Bears on Tuesday? Will the Committee account for the injury to Stidham and the injuries to our defense (spoiler: no) or will they drop us like they dropped TCU (spoiler: yeah, probably). Whatever, the Committee can do what they want. I'm going to watch Baylor win in Stillwater for the first time since before WWII this coming weekend.
One loss does not define us. Baylor we are, and Baylor we'll always be.
