Podcast Episode 37: Top Ten and Schedule Stuff

New, comments

Better late than never, right? This week we're looking at commits, rankings, the Big 12 schedule, and answering your questions.

Christian Petersen

New Intro Song!

If you couldn't tell, I'm excited about it. What do you think?

News Team Assemble

We're talking about our not-really-controversial new commit, Jameson Houston and the benefits and drawbacks of the recruiting ranking systems that are in place today. Sometimes, the star rankings really depend on exposure to talent evaluators, whether through ease of access or visibility. We make some other points about it, too.

As you know by now, Baylor is ranked #10 in the Amway Coaches' Poll (incidentally: Amway? Really, coaches? You couldn't find a better sponsor for your poll?). We're discussing why it's a good thing, and it doesn't just have to do with where you end up at the end of the season. We're also taking a look at where other Big 12 teams show up in the rankings.

Schedule Breakdown!

We're looking at not just Baylor's schedule, but highlighting some games on the slate for the rest of the Big 12. We talk about marquee non-conference matchups, how Texas will fare in their first four games (you'd think, from these show notes, that this is a Texas podcast. It's not.), the best of the rest of the games, and whether it's K-State or Texas Tech that's the dark horse of the conference.

Community Feedback

There's some good fun stuff here. Stadiums, drones, and more. Plus, the QUESTION OF THE WEEK: Is it possible to be too turnt? Does this state exist? Show your work. Enjoy.
