Baylor pulled off the relatively rare (because of scheduling) sweep of TCU in basketball yesterday, beating the Frogs senseless in both games in the Ferrell Center. The men moved to 13-2 (1-1) on the season while the women improved to 14-1 (4-0) heading into their Big Monday showdown with UConn.

No. 7 WBB Rolls to 80-46 Win Over TCU - Baylor Bears Official Athletic Site - BaylorBears.com
Odyssey Sims scored 28 points and No. 7 Baylor led throughout its 80-46 victory over TCU on Saturday night that extended the Lady Bears' national-best home-court winning streak to 69 games. After being recognized during pregame for breaking the school's career record for 3-pointers in the previous game, national scoring leader Sims made six more shots from long-range. She had two from beyond the arc when the Lady Bears (14-1, 4-0 Big 12) scored the game's first 14 points in just over 3 minutes.
Since I've now buried the lede just a bit, this news came across twitter just a few minutes ago:
In case you don't know who he is and can't read the article, Cordell Broadus is the son to one Calvin Broadus, otherwise known as Snoop Dogg, Snoop Doggy, and, more recently, Snoop Lion. Broadus is a 4* WR from California (obviously) that likes two things about Baylor, according to the article: 1) We throw the ball a lot, and 2) We win.
Bet he ends up at USC, but can you imagine Snoop roaming the sidelines decked out in green and gold? Reactions on twitter to the idea have been pretty awesome so far. I especially like this appeal:
Baylor's colors ARE green and gold. Snoop is already quite familiar with both.— The 15th Letter (@Omagus) January 12, 2014

The vintage football uniforms the Baylor Bears debuted for the final game of the season proved to be a popular look both on and off the field.
Texas has supposedly hired Joe Wickline, the OL coach from Oklahoma State, as their new OL coach under Charlie Strong. That comes on the heels of hiring Chris Rumph (DL coach) away from Alabama. Since we knew Strong was going to put together a solid defense/defensive staff, Rumph doesn't really "scare" me all that much. Wickline does. He's a quality coach and strong recruiter who has managed to build continually good OL units for Mike Gundy at Oklahoma State. It's not difficult to imagine him doing even better at Texas.
