Football Scheduling News: What We Know

Yesterday, Art Briles dropped a bomb during Stewart Mandel's podcast, mentioning in passing that Baylor will play Mississippi State in the next few years. How truthful Briles was being is debatable, as the MSU AD later said on twitter that no plans have been set. However, Smoaky and the rest of the radio crowd are also saying that Ian McCaw has a few options at the moment with Power 5 schools and we should hear something in a week or so. Pertinent tweets are embedded below.

NCAA Tennis Nationals Set

Men's Tennis

Baylor Men's Tennis will be the No. 2 seed going into the national postseason, behind only Oklahoma. Four Big 12 programs (OU, Baylor, TCU, Texas) are in the top ten with a legitimate shot to win it all. These teams are built for a large tournament after spending all year grinding through tough non-conference schedules and working against each other during the indoor and outdoor seasons.

Women's Tennis

Baylor Women's Tennis claimed the No. 8 overall seed and will host Northwestern State, Rice, and Tulsa in the early rounds of the tournament, all of whom they beat handily during the regular season. Baylor hosts the first and second rounds as well as the championship rounds if they make it that far.

Baseball Loses Again

Another lead squandered.

Softball Ends Non-Conference Games With UTSA

It's the last regular season non-conference game of the season for Baylor Softball, and we hope that they fare better against the Roadrunners than the baseball team. First pitch flies at 6 p.m.

Sports Are Drunk

There were a few pretty amazing sports foibles yesterday, two of which I'll include in today's DBR. The first was in a German soccer game - the German soccer game - between the two largest clubs in the country, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich. The game was tied, made it through extra time without either team gaining an advantage, and eventually went to penalty kicks, where Bayern's first two shooters slipped, fell flat on their backs, and missed wide in the exact same way.

Perhaps even funnier is this sequence in the Mavs-Rockets game:

There's a reason why we love sports, guys.
