At first Monday hits you like a ton of bricks, but then at 1:00 p.m. you have the dulcet tones of Coach Art Briles help smooth over any wrinkles the first work day of the week brings you. And we're here to bring you that press conference, like we always are! This week's opponent will be the Iowa State Cyclones, and we'll start looking at them in a deeper way later on. But first, the coaches meet the media!
Big 12 Teleconference
As always, if you're interested in hearing the audio, head on over to this page and click the archive link for October 19th. Briles went on at 11:00 a.m. Here are some relevant tweets for this week:
Holgorsen compares Corey Coleman to former WV receiver Tavon Austin but says the BU receiver is stronger and more physical.— John Werner (@JohnWernerTrib) October 19, 2015
Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads on Baylor averaging 63.8 points: "It's absurd, that's what it is. ... Unbelievable numbers."— Chuck Carlton (@ChuckCarltonDMN) October 19, 2015
Holgorsen says Andrew Billings disruptive, as good as any noseguard he's seen.— John Werner (@JohnWernerTrib) October 19, 2015
Speaking of Billings...
Baylor coach Art Briles says injured NT Andrew Billings is in a walking boot with an ankle sprain and is day-to-day. Uncertain for Iowa St.— Chuck Carlton (@ChuckCarltonDMN) October 19, 2015
In my mind, this means that barring a 100% complete recovery, we will most likely not see Andrew Billings in action this Saturday against the Cyclones. If they rest him, that gives him all of this week, plus the bye week to get ready for the clash against Kansas State on Thursday, November 5.
As usual, let's start with the visitors:
