Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait. Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come. -- Robert H. Schuller
Because of the awful spectre of exams, you guys get me again for the DBR today. It's been a while, so I'm a bit rusty, but I think we can make it through.
Another 2015 Football Commit:
The big story in Baylor Football at the moment is the commitment of 2015 CB Jordan Tolbert, which I covered last night. He's a great prospect at a need position for the Bears, who now have 9 commits for this class.

KD Cannon continues dominating:
Baylor football signee K.D. Cannon continued his torrid development on the track with a 4A gold medal in the 100m.
Baylor WR signee KD Cannon took home the 100m title here with a blazing time of 10.32. Says Waco isn't ready for that speed. #SicEm— Wescott Eberts (@SBN_Wescott) May 10, 2014

The 2014 NFL Draft:
The big story in current events in the larger world of sports is, of course, the NFL Draft. I thought for a while last night with the slight run on running backs that we might see Lache Seastrunk go off the board. Alas, it was not to be. He's now among SB Nation's top remaining players as Round 4 begins in the link below, as is OG Cyril Richardson.

Whether sponsors pay a minimum of $2,500 for a chance to have their picture taken with him, someone pays $1,600 for an autographed pair of Superman socks or bidders flock to a silent auction for a Redskins jersey, it’s good to be friends with Robert Griffin III if you want to raise money for your organization.
That event, of course, is where RGIII shared the following:
