The Big 12 fell apart in a big way yesterday. West Virginia was hamstringed by backup quarterback Skyler Howard's inaccuracy in a loss to Texas A&M (a team I'm confident Clint Trickett would have carved up) and Texas and Oklahoma suffered graphic, Fall-of-the-Old-Republic level mollywhoppings to Arkansas and Clemson respectively. It's clear that these are two programs that are in for a serious reckoning over the offseason; Texas has a good coach but no obvious means of improvement. Oklahoma has a talent-laden roster and a perennial inability to turn it into major on-field success. The inmates (Baylor and TCU) are running the asylum, and these old giants can't seem to do anything about it. It's a sad state of affairs.

Texas: 59 yards on 43 offensive plays; fewest yards by any FBS team in a game this season— ESPN Stats & Info (@ESPNStatsInfo) December 30, 2014
Thank goodness it wasn't Texas-LSU. There would have been less than 100 yards of total offense between the teams.

Baylor has three quarterbacks on its roster (possibly four, but we have no idea what Frerking is capable of) who are better than the starter at Texas and Oklahoma. What a time to be alive.

Ow. That's a lot of rebounds.
Like I said, the Lady Bears are good and the sun rose in the east this morning.
Baylor Continues Cotton Bowl Activities
This is really cool. Makes a lot of days. There's no medicine like a Bryce Petty hug.
MBB vs. Norfolk State Tonight
Conference play is coming. This is the last non-con game of the regular season for Baylor, and then the brutal Big 12 schedule begins. It should be an easy win, but it's one we'll need down the road if we want to make the tournament. The game is at 7 p.m. in the Ferrell Center, and airs on Fox Sports Southwest.
