Now that Baylor has officially announced its new head coach ...
I thought it might be worthwhile to take the temperature of the various major outlets to let people know what others were saying about this hire. I'll share my thoughts on it when I have more time to collect them. Suffice to say, I am excited.
Starting with a tweet from last week ...

I think maybe Matt Rhule is what everyone thinks Tom Herman is.
The Baylor search is finally over. Impressive get. https://t.co/Uudtlrqb30— Max Olson (@max_olson) December 6, 2016
Incredible, incredible hire for Baylor getting Matt Rhule. I'm a HUGE fan of his. What he's done at Temple is remarkable.— Shehan Jeyarajah (@ShehanJeyarajah) December 6, 2016
Staffing wise, Matt Rhule's top priority will be to bring Phil Snow to Waco .. one of the most underrated DCs in America .. #Baylor— Rich Cirminiello (@RichCirminiello) December 6, 2016
Patience is gonna be key. Lots of JUCO to build depth. But Rhule is a home run for @OurDailyBears. Will build it from ground up.— Smoking Musket (@SmokingMusket) December 6, 2016
For Baylor, I think it's an outstanding hire and someone with characteristics that the program really needs after the whole Art Briles saga. https://t.co/XUF9QKNjhn— Chris Jastrzembski (@CFJastrzembski) December 6, 2016
@BUFootball treasure him, Baylor. He is better than most programs deserve.— Acres of Cherries (@acresofcherries) December 6, 2016
It's a new day in Baylor Nation. Finally. Matt Rhule is our guy. Let's all get behind him. Time to turn the page. pic.twitter.com/enYk42qYyz— david fankhauser (@dfank_BU) December 6, 2016
Matt Rhule to Baylor would be a Rorshach test — you can see huge positives ("he won at Temple!") and negatives ("he has zero Texas ties!").— Greg Tepper (@Tepper) December 6, 2016
And the tweet that started everything off today ...
#SicEm. I'll add more folks as we go along.
