PROGRAMMING NOTE: A late start prevented Elliot from joining the podcast that we recorded Wednesday night. As a result, Fank and I are covering the latest news of the past 48 hours or so. We will record a full preview of the Big 12 Championship game tomorrow early evening and have it up for your consumption as soon as possible.
Fank and I are discussing the Volleyball Team’s #1 overall seed and their honors in the All Big 12 team. They square off against Sacred Heart Friday night at the Ferrell Center and, if they win that matchup, will face the winner of USC vs. SFA on Saturday night. Speaking of the Ferrell Center on Friday, we can’t help but sneak in some basketball talk since the MBB team faces Arizona Saturday morning. In quite possibly the worst scheduling coincidence of all time, the game tips off AT THE SAME TIME AS THE BIG 12 CHAMPIONSHIP GAME. But hey, tickets are free!
Next up, we’re talking about Coach Matt Rhule winning Big 12 Coach of the Year and James Lynch being awarded Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year honors. Kendall covered the rest of the names in this post, so check it out! Here’s a quick rundown of the All Big 12 Honorees from Baylor:
First Team: Denzel Mims, James Lynch, Bravvion Roy
Second Team: Koby Bullard, Sam Tecklenburg, Terrel Bernard, Clay Johnston, Grayland Arnold, Chris Miller
Honorable Mention: Charlie Brewer (QB & OPOY), JaMycal Hasty, Jameson Houston, James Lockhart, Blake Lynch, Xavier Newman, Tyquan Thornton
Finally, we’re talking about the latest College Football Playoff rankings, who is slotted where and how it impacts Baylor’s bowl picture! In the show, I mention a great discussion thread by LisaMarie (who, I believe, is LisaHI on ODB) on Twitter. Here is the first tweet of that thread:
CFB pundits don’t learn year to year. This week’s rankings don’t matter. It doesn’t matter what team is at #5. They aren’t the heir apparent to #4 if UGA loses. The committee uses a clean sheet & most ppl don’t believe them. That’s why most ppl are frustrated. 1/11— Lisa Marie (@LisaMarie) December 4, 2019
Stick around folks, we’ll be back tonight with the full Big 12 Championship Preview and picks!
