New, 3 comments

Coffey, Fank, and Peter are back in action, previewing the offense, answering your questions, and looking more in-depth at the worst intro video ever made

NCAA Football: Big 12 Media Day Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The podcast is back, y’all. Elliot Coffey returns to the show for his second season, this time equipped with a brand new computer and microphone. He’s joining Fank and Peter to start our regular set of preview shows, starting with your 2018 Baylor Bears offense. But, we’re kicking off this episode talking about the big news that dropped on Thursday: Baylor and Auburn will play a home and home series in 2025 and 2026! GET SUPER HYPED about games that are 7 and 8 years away. Woo!

Offense Preview time!

Oh yeah, it’s time to get excited. Here’s what we’re breaking down on the offensive side of the football

  • Overall outlook: Things look better! The coaches sound much more optimistic!
  • Offensive Line: This is where we hope to see the most growth, with added depth and experience, but there still remain some concerns with a young group and a new position coach. (Apologies to Coach DeLeone for forgetting his name here)
  • Quarterbacks: Charlie Brewer gets a new nickname from Fank. We’re very interested to see how Gerry Bohannon gets involved with the offense, and to see how Jalen McClendon fits in as well
  • Wide Receivers: Easily the deepest position group of the entire team, with a healthy Chris Platt back, Denzel Mims looking to build on a solid foundation, and oh yeah... that Jalen Hurd guy. We’re also interested to see how Tyquan Thornton and the rest of the WRs get their opportunities in this offense.
  • Running Backs: JaMycal Hasty and John Lovett are both back and looking strong, and we’re interested to see if one emerges as an every down back, or if they continue to split time with Tristan Ebner. Will Hurd factor in at all, either?
  • READER QUESTIONS! You asked, we answered.

That. Intro. Video.

If you missed it making the rounds on Twitter, a good friend of ours unearthed the in-stadium intro video from 2006. It is all kinds of bad, and we talk about it on the show. Check it out:

There is so much to unpack here. While the Burleson statue sic ‘em and Morriss’ hanging out by the giant BU were some of our favorites (and Coffey makes the best analogy here), others chimed in and brought other great elements to our attention:

Then there was these two images, from Davis DeLoach at BaylorVision:

Absolutely magnificent.
