Do it. It's your obligation as a student of Baylor University.

Blackout Tomorrow vs. West Virginia

Things you should know: Baylor is not mathematically eliminated from Big 12 title contention. If Baylor wins out and Kansas picks up two losses, the Bears will win a share of the Big 12 title. In fact, a five-way tie is a legitimate possibility. Chew on that, Big 12 marketing department.

It's also a common opinion in the media that the winner of tomorrow's game could become frontrunner for Big 12 Coach of the Year, which would be a huge slap in the face to those who still insist that Scott Drew is a poor coach. Blackout shirts are on sale in the SUB and the bookstore, so grab one if you haven't yet and be at the game tomorrow. Students especially, but Wacoans and other alumni as well. This team deserves a sellout.

Men's Tennis Hosts Virginia on Sunday

Baylor hosts yet another big tennis matchup when Virginia visits on Sunday. The Bears are 8-2 and looking for another shutout after their domination of UCLA. The match begins at 1 at the Hurd Tennis Center, or the Hawkins Indoor Center depending on weather. It's not a sport that typically draws big American crowds, but this is one of Baylor's highest quality offerings in terms of athletics, so give it a try if you haven't already. It's a fun game to watch, especially with a rooting interest.
