LET'S GET SOMETHING OUT OF THE WAY:
Now I didn't say anything about this yesterday, students, because it was Tuesday. But it's Wednesday now, and your #2-ranked Baylor Bears are playing their first home Big 12 game of the season on Saturday morning. There's no excuse for any of you not to be there, particularly since it's 11 AM. That's more than enough time to sleep off Friday and get yourself together. You can nap after.
TALKIN' BOUT THE WEATHER:
Those of you that are coming from out-of-state to the game this weekend probably need to know that much of Texas is currently (as of Wednesday) in the grips of a fairly incredible heat wave. In Dallas, for example, it is currently 97 degrees. It is also October 14.
Thankfully, the weather should be significantly better on Saturday for the game. According to Wunderground, the forecast for Saturday calls for a high of 84 degrees, and the game-time temperature will be a (relatively) frosty 74 with light winds from the east.
TV/RADIO/WATCH PARTY STUFF:
For whatever reason, we don't have the "Can't Make it to McLane" post from BaylorBears.com to crib off of today, so we'll have to make do. The game will be televised on FOX with the stellar (I think?) announcing duo of Bill Rosinski and David Norrie in the booth and Joe Schad roaming the sidelines. Players, try not to run over him, if you can.
If I'm not mistaken, this will be the 50th straight national telecast for the Bears. That's pretty sweet.

Now, I'm cribbing this off last week's post vs. Kansas, but I don't see any reason why the radio affiliates would change in a single week. If you listen to the Bears habitually, chances are that your station of choice will be carrying them on Saturday morning.
Once we get more information about Watch Parties, I'll update the post. Apparently that is something that changes week-to-week, and I don't want to give out false info.
Go ahead and vote in the poll below to signal your intentions for this week's game. At this point, it looks like I will not be in attendance. But so far, that hasn't stopped the Bears from dominating!
