12.3.2013 Daily Bears Report: Happy Birthday, Coaches Briles and Bennett!

This day should basically be a Baylor holiday, right? We're celebrating the birthdays of Head Coach Art Briles and his defensive coordinator Phil Bennett, who were both born on this date in 1955.


Happy Birthday, gentlemen!  Not that you will, but I hope you at least take a moment to celebrate at some point in your preparation for the Texas game today.

Speaking of that game...

That's pretty intense, students.  I'm proud of you.  6,700 tickets is probably about 60% of the total student allotment, and you guys cleared that in a day.  I wouldn't be shocked to see the rest of it go today.  All that means is that if you want to go to this game, you'd better act fast.  Really fast.

That was a tweet sent to me before the ticket office even opened.  I've since received another showing the line out the door again of the SUB.  Impressive.  To the news!
