Camp Rolls On
We get more news out of Waco every day, and ALMOST THREE WHOLE MINUTES OF IT IS KAZ KAZADI.
The cold tub will be there through thick and through thin. Now get your butt out there and thank God that it's hot.
Everyone says that Baylors receivers are looking incredible in camp. KD Cannon is a much better route runner than Robbie Rhodes was at this point last year, and Ishmael Zamora is a physical beast.
The above article includes a quote from Phil Bennett regarding Sam Ukwuachu, who is reportedly working out some personal issues and won't be with the team until they're resolved. I don't know any more than anyone else on what Bennett meant, so I won't speculate until I hear more.
You know about the standout Baylor offensive talent. But return of LT Spencer Drango from back surgery will be a key. http://t.co/3DA4sqfdPM— Chuck Carlton (@ChuckCarltonDMN) August 6, 2014
Drango is a future NFL player barring horrific slump or injury (knock on wood) and everyone knows it.
Bryce Petty can fly. But those of us who haven't completely repressed our memories of the Fiesta Bowl know that.
Around the Big 12
The big story yesterday was the news that TCU defensive end Devonte Fields is transferring to Stephen F. Austin, where he will be eligible to play immediately. The only winners in this saga are the tackles who no longer have to deal with Fields. Unfortunately, it looks like there is a victim whose life has been changed, and a talented player whose career has taken a significant hit because of his poor judgment.
Stephen F. Austin, by the way, opens its season at some school called Kansas State.— David Ubben (@davidubben) August 7, 2014
Bill Snyder reportedly frowned, moved a punter to left tackle, and continued sipping on his mug of black coffee.
Also notable was a hamstring injury sustained by Texas receiver Jaxon Shipley. After the loss of several other receivers to suspension or arrest/dismissal, this was the last thing Texas's offense needed.
Texas WRs with game experience currently practicing: John Harris, Jacorey Warrick. That is all.— Max Olson (@max_olson) August 6, 2014
Soccer has been a good program for Baylor. That's likely to continue this year.
