In some ways, the seniors that play today are the greatest generation of Baylor football. They've seen the vast majority of the Briles era, seen a Heisman come to Waco, and played a key part in two Baylor Big 12 Championships. They were amazing. No matter how today ends, they will be missed and loved.
And now, a special on our fearless leader:
Everyone in the Petty family looks alike.

The Daily Bear
Bears and Spartans, you say? Which one will win? Spartan Bear wonders why we can't aim for the best of both worlds.
Apologies for the brevity of today's report but I have to drive to Dallas before the game starts and find a nook to cozy up and watch the game.
