Tuesday DBR: The Battle of the Brazos: Reloaded

The Aggies are back in Waco. Oh dear.

Fill the Ferrell TONIGHT

Texas A&M left the Big 12 on unfriendly terms. It's time to welcome them back to one of the cities where they're least welcome. The Battle of the Brazos may be dead on the gridiron, but for the next two years it will be alive and well on the court.

Kenny Chery's status is unknown at the time this report is being written, but it will be good if the Bears get their starting point guard back. Otherwise, look for more minutes from Austin Mills and Ish Wainwright. I've watched very little A&M basketball over the last two seasons, so I can't really give you a sense of what to expect from them. Taurean Prince and Royce O'Neale have been on fire for Baylor lately, and Rico Gathers has shown streaks of scoring ability. I anticipate a Baylor win in front of a fun and hostile home crowd.

Baylor entering December hibernation

There's not going to be much happening outside of shootyhoops for the rest of the month. Baylor is settling into finals week, and before long campus will be a ghost town. After the Christmas break, I'll be heading to Cologne, Germany for six months as an international student at the Cologne Business School, but I still plan on writing the Daily Bears report and keeping my finger on the pulse of Baylor Athletics from halfway around the world. The spring holds many things for Bears fans to look forward to, including great men's and women's basketball, a top-class equestrian team, a (hopefully) improved baseball team and a softball team that returns many pieces from last year's College World Series run. Pile on several nationally ranked tennis stars and a golf program that's far from shabby, and you have tons of content and tons to celebrate. Have a great day, Bears. And to those studying for finals: pain is temporary; the fruit of your academic success is forever.
