PODCAST: The Gift Six

Fank and Pope recap a somewhat fortuitous yet much-needed victory over Cincinnati, then look ahead to a Homecoming matchup against Iowa State!

Ugly win is win! It may not have been the most beautiful of victories, but in the year of our Lord 2023 we’ll take any victory we can get. It took changes on the offense and some special teams magic (okay, a lot of special teams magic), but the Baylor Bears were able to pull out a victory against Cincinnati and forestall a descent into the depths of the Big 12 Basement.

Fank and I start off the episode with a recap of Fank’s trip to Cincinnati then break down each unit’s performance against Cincinnati, before turning towards a Homecoming Preview where the Bears face off against the Iowa State Cyclones. This is going to be a tough game; it’s a matchup that does not fill us with tremendous amounts of optimism or confidence, at least on paper. The Bears will need to build upon their success against the Bearcats last weekend.

Enjoy the show!
