Baylor sweeps the Big 12 Players of the Week

New, comments

Eddie Lackey's second interception return for a touchdown in as many weeks earns him Defensive Player of the Week honors while Lache Seastrunk's tremendous run did the same for him on the Offensive side.

US PRESSWIRE

According to BaylorBears.com, this is the third Defensive Player of the Week honor for Baylor this season with Joe Williams having the other (after the Kansas State game) besides Lackey and the first Offensive Player of the Week. I think it's safe to say that it won't be the last in Seastrunk's career at Baylor, since he's almost certain to get an entire year of focus next season and he and Glasco Martin will both benefit (in terms of carries) from having a first-year starter at QB regardless of who it is.

Also, if you don't follow me on twitter (and just why the hell don't you at this point?), this is as good a place as any to mention that Baylor finished the 2012 regular season as officially the top offense in the country in terms of total yards per game. We lost our best QB (Robert Griffin III), RB (Terrance Ganaway), and WR (Kendall Wright) from last year's team, players representing something like 80% of the total yardage gained by the team, and our yards per game dropped by just under 9. Total. Our ranking actually went up, since we finished last season in second place.

If that last paragraph isn't a good enough argument for you that we need to PAY ART BRILES, then I don't know what is.
