10.23.2013 Daily Bears Report, Early Edition

Early enrollees, Charlie Weis, upset victories, and televised volleyball!

Just look at it.  Amazing.

Charlie Weis will attempt to re-create Kansas State's success against the Baylor offense this weekend, but containing organized chaos, especially organized chaos that's probably figured out how to work over a clock-killing team, is difficult.

Baylor's wide receivers have gotten some well-earned press recently, with the Cowboys signing former Bear Lanear Sampson to the practice squad yesterday. Sampson joins Terrance Williams in the Dallas organization, where Williams is shining, having made 24 catches on 28 passes his direction, good for a league-leading 86% rate. A current Baylor wide receiver took an interesting path to the team, but Clay Fuller knows he's now where he's supposed to be.

David Ubben looks at the Baylor defensive line, which is being anchored this season by untested true freshmen in Byron Bonds and Andrew Billings, as well as a player who catches everyone's eye as soon as he gets off the bus, sophomore DE Shawn Oakman, who leads the conference in tackles for loss without ever having started a game.

2014 signee Jordan Feuerbacher has signed a financial aid contract with Baylor, and plans to graduate Kingwood Park High School a semester early to enroll in classes and participate in spring drills this coming January. Feuerbacher, a 6-3, 240-pound tight end, will be able to get needed experience, as Baylor's current top two tight ends are both seniors.

In other Big 12 news, TCU has a serious problem scoring points in the first half, averaging only 6.3 per game this season, just like OU has a problem throwing down the field.  The Sooners know they have to get better in that respect or teams will just stack the box against Blake Bell, limiting their offense tremendously.

One day after naming Baylor the #1 team in HuskerMath's CFB Power Rankings, FootballStudyHall has win expectancy charts for every conference in the land.   You'll like Baylor's!

Mens' tennis junior Diego Galeano continued his string of upset victories and captured the USTA/ITA Texas Regional singles title yesterday, defeating No. 56 Shane Vinsant of Texas A&M 4-6, 6-4, 7-5. Galeano earned a spot in the ITA National Indoor Intercollegiate Championships held in Flushing, New York, Nov. 7-0.

Volleyball will face off against Kansas State at 7 p.m. on FSSW tonight, as the Bears still look for their second conference win.


Greetings, folks! It’s Wednesday, which means that your midweek edition of OurDailyPodcast records tonight! Prashanth will be unavailable due to the fact that he’s a “medical student” and has things called “exams” that “require” him to “study.” As a result, the huggable troll known as mattisbear (Matt Wilson) will join Mark and myself tonight. We’ll preview the Kansas game a bit, look at the Big 12 and make our predictions, as well as take your calls and email questions in Community Feedback! We’ve gotten a few calls, but very few email questions so far.

Also, this week we’ll have a regular edition of the No Huddle, which we haven’t had in a couple of weeks. We haven’t gotten many No Huddle questions this week, so please send those to OurDailyPodcast(at)gmail(dot)com today and I’ll pose the questions to Mark and Matt. If you want Peter and Matt to answer your No Huddles, email them to Mark at OurDailyBears(at)gmail(dot)com. Lastly, if you want Mark and Peter to answer, don’t email questions to Matt… Instead, send them to him via twitter at @mattisbear. This is your chance to get involved in the podcast and really make it something fun. Remember: No Huddle questions don’t have to be strictly related to Baylor sports! If you have a funny and/or random question, feel free to toss those out too.

Thanks everybody!
