12.23.2012 Daily Bears Report: It's Christmas Eve ... eve.

I'm going to be out most of the day today, so here's everything I could find this morning about Baylor Athletics from across the intertubes.


Baylor RB Lache Seastrunk: "I’m going to win the Heisman" | Dr. Saturday - Yahoo! Sports
We like Lache Seastrunk. The Baylor running back is a big-play threat every time he touches the ball. He finished the season with some huge performances for the Bears once they decided to use him into a featured role.

Let's get this out of the way first-- I don't have a single problem with Lache Seastrunk saying what he said about next year's Heisman Trophy. First, from everything I can tell he was responding to a question that he didn't know was coming. Second, there's nothing wrong with confidence, and Lache has that in spades. If this kind of statement drives him to work harder and aim higher, I'm totally fine with it. Sure, too much confidence can be dangerous, especially when it leads to disappointment, but I don't see that here. Seastrunk has a goal and thinks he can achieve it. I believe him when he says he can do it, and I've already detailed how he gets it done. This is a non-issue that people are using now to criticize Baylor. Let them.
