1/12/2012 Daily Bears Report: Weekend Update with MCM

In case you weren't award, our men's basketball team plays TCU today. Extrapolating from the win over Tech in Lubbock, we should beat TCU by about 712 (because Tech beat TCU, somehow). Drew returns to action today, so that's something else to watch for. My guess is early in the second half for when he sheds the coat in disgust about something.

Baylor stays on even keel while coach suspended - San Antonio Express-News
The Bears claimed a tough 86-79 overtime victory over Texas to start conference play. Drew watched from his home, taking a tip from the superstitious San Francisco 49ers fan in the TV commercial who frantically searches for his lucky spot for viewing games. Whether it was their coach's sedentary plans or merely a hot shooting night, the Bears followed Tang's direction to push their winning streak against in-state opponents to 13 games. "I think our staff did a tremendous job," said Drew, who sat out the two games as a self-imposed penalty because of his failure to monitor the sending of text messages and phone calls to recruits beyond the NCAA's limit. The Bears broke defending national champion Kentucky's 55-game home winning streak earlier in the season, but struggled in home losses to College of Charleston and Northwestern.
