More things of import may happen in this afternoon’s coach/player media availability, but this is definitely worthy of note:
QB Zach Smith will wear #8 jersey for remainder of season. Was told by Coach Rhule this week. #Baylor— Craig Smoak (@CraigSmoak) October 3, 2017
I can hardly think of anyone more worthy of the honor after the way he’s performed the last few weeks, and apparently Coach Rhule agreed. Baylor now has all 9 single-digit numbers occupied going forward.*
*For those unfamiliar, single-digit numbers on Coach Rhule’s teams are awarded based on merit, with each player wearing one having earned it in practice, film study, on the field, etc. etc. as determined by the staff and the other players on the team.
