It's Homecoming Week!

baylor.edu

Homecoming Week is here again, which means that ODB's resident Chamber rep is off doing Chamber things all week and y'all get to be stuck with the replacement writer. Bummer, I know. Anyway, let's find out what's happening in Baylor sports right now.

Tennis and Golf

Former Baylor All-American Benjamin Becker achieved a person-record singles ranking of No. 35 in the newest ATP rankings, moving up 10 spots from his position a week ago.

The senior Burgic falls to 7-3 in pro events this fall. Not bad for a college kid, I'd say.

A rough day on the links saw the Lady Bears drop to ninth place with an overall score of 9-over 153. Head coach Jay Goble was not too pleased with his team's performance, saying "Nobody played that great." Hopefully the girls can clean up the small mistakes and have a better day today in the third and final round of the Alamo Invitational.

The men's team, on the other hand, is performing well at their tournament, the Royal Oaks Intercollegiate. The Bears trail Oklahoma State by a mere two strokes as a team and senior Mikkel Bjerch-Andresen leads all players by three strokes. Another solid day could bring home hardware for the men's team today.

FOOBAWR

Did you know there was a football game at McClane Stadium? Of course you did. You are going to be there and wear the appropriate color, right? Of course you are. Here's a reminder for #StripeMcClane, in case you forgot.

Art Briles and co gave their weekly press conference yesterday. You can read ODB's recap here or the entire transcript here.

Homecoming not only brings back Bears of yesteryear, it brings future Bears to McClane Stadium as well. In terms of recruits, it looks like Baylor could have a star-studded lineup on hand to witness the beat down of the Jayhawks. Here's a short (and probably incomplete) list:

Jeffrey McCullock - 2016 3* OLB

Dontavious Jackson - 2016 4* ILB

Kris Boyd - 2015 4* CB

Kahlil Haughton - 2015 4* S

Daylon Mack - 2015 5* DT currently committed to aggy.

Needless to say, a shutout of Kansas would surely help these players in their decision-making process. I also don't have to tell you that if Mack switches, he and Billings would wreck shop together.

Baylor Memories

I put out the call on Twitter to send in your best moments/quotes in Baylor history. Y'all didn't disappoint.

The 2011 OU game was obviously brought up:

Naturally, we had some TCU hatin'

And finally, the quote of the year for 2013:

Yes, yes He can.

A Homecoming Week special!
