Senior Bowl Reports

Information coming out of Senior Bowl practices isn't extremely widespread, but the general consensus regarding Baylor players Bryce Petty and Antwan Goodley is that there is no general consensus. Petty has struggled with taking snaps from under center and mid-range passing, but has excelled in short-range passing and deep balls. He'll be a project for the team that drafts him, but if he mentally adjusts to a pro-style offense he has all the tools to be a reliable starter.

Goodley's week has been interesting for his draft stock. He has struggled with drops, just as he did all season, but has plenty of spectacular catch potential and cornerbacks who have been interviewed say he is the most difficult receiver to cover at the entire event. His extreme physicality after the catch has led some scouts to believe he may eventually find a home as a running back or utility player if he doesn't pan out as a receiver.

MBB at Home vs. OU Tomorrow

I can't find anything in the way of previews for this game, but it should be a good one. Oklahoma has shown a wild lack of consistency since the beginning of conference play, at times looking like world beaters and at other times looking like a team that will barely make the tournament. In the first meeting of the season, they managed to nullify Baylor's typically significant advantage in rebounding. Regaining that part of the game will be key for a Baylor team that has struggled offensively and relies on second chance points. Kenny Chery and Royce O'Neale have both had extra rest after sitting against Huston-Tillotson on Tuesday.

Tipoff is at 5 p.m. on ESPN2.

Lady Bears Host Kansas State Tomorrow

The Ferrell Center will be busy tomorrow. The Lady Bears, who have been in spectacular form lately, will host Kansas State as heavy favorites. The two teams played earlier this month in Manhattan and Baylor won by 30. K-State is 11-6 overall but only 1-5 in Big 12 play, essentially the exact opposite of their men's team.

The Daily Bear

Actually is Daily Hat

Yeah, it's not a real bear, but the Frogman's hat is one of my favorite things on the internet.
