It's West Virginia week, also known as Hopefully Not TCU Hangover Week.

Soccer Falls to OSU

Baylor Soccer's record has plummeted since the beginning of conference play, and deteriorated further this weekend against Oklahoma State. The team fell 2-0 to the Lady Pokes.

Volleyball vs. UL-Lafayette on Tuesday

Baylor Volleyball is also stuck in a losing streak, falling in back to back matches against Texas and Kansas. They take a break from Big 12 conference play this week with a Tuesday match against Louisiana Lafayette at 7 p.m. in the Ferrell Center.

Obi and Bromell Honored at McLane Stadium

Baylor's two individual national champions in track and field events were recognized on Saturday during the first half of the football game. Obi (triple jump) and Bromell (100m) won NCAA gold medals in their events during the indoor and outdoor track and field seasons respectively. Bromell also holds the Junior World Record in the 100m dash.

Men's Golf Stays Strong

I would love playing golf if I wasn't so darn terrible at it. I can't throw things either, so maybe I just have poor muscle memory.

TCU Aftermath: Perspective

Hate on, haters. Baylor slogged through the college football underworld for most of history. We're allowed to rush the field for a once-in-a-lifetime comeback. Fact of the matter is, Baylor Football is in the middle of its first true golden age, and we're witnessing success that is blowing the minds of every member of the fan base, even those that lived through the Grant Teaff era.

In four years, Baylor fans have seen what many fans have to wait decades for, and the regular season is barely halfway done. If Ryan Reid has truly turned a corner and Aiavion Edwards is healthy and ready to come back into the rotation with Taylor Young (who played exceptionally well on Saturday) then Baylor will be ready for West Virginia, and more than likely anything else the conference can throw at us.

Enthusiasm on campus is at an all-time high. After the game, I was walking through campus with one of my pledge brothers (most of you know that I'm in Chamber) and we walked past the SUB to see if the game day banner was still hanging outside. It wasn't. Enterprising students had already arrived with a ladder and cut it down to keep as a souvenir. Kids are ready to trample each other for a bus pass to Norman later this season. Everything is awesome, and hopefully it will stay that way. Buckle up.
