Lookin' Good for Baylor Football!
I'll admit it-- I'm a perpetual optimist. I even think that the crack/powder bill will pass the House this week, before Congress's summer recess.
But it takes a REAL optimist to think Baylor football is going to make a bowl game, and that's my prediction. Robert Griffin is back. The offensive line looks decent. And... check out the schedule:
09/04/10 vs. Sam Houston State Waco, Texas 6:00 p.m. CT
09/11/10 vs. Buffalo (PW) TV Waco, Texas 6:00 p.m. CT
09/18/10 at TCU TV Fort Worth, Texas 3:30 p.m. CT
09/25/10 at Rice TV Houston, Texas 7:00 p.m. CT
10/02/10 vs. Kansas * Waco, Texas TBA
10/09/10 vs. Texas Tech * Dallas, Texas TBA
10/16/10 at Colorado * Boulder, Colo. TBA
10/23/10 vs. Kansas State (HC) * Waco, Texas TBA
10/30/10 at Texas * Austin, Texas TBA
11/06/10 at Oklahoma State * Stillwater, Okla. TBA
11/13/10 vs. Texas A&M * Waco, Texas TBA
11/20/10 vs. Oklahoma * Waco, Texas TBA
As I figure it, there is a real chance at Baylor being 7-1 going into the Texas game. That 5-game stretch to end the season is a bear, but... up until then, the TCU game is the only one I see us most likely losing. Even if they start out 6-2, they still would have a chance to beat A & M at home to end up 7-5. Sic 'em!
Of course, the game to see this year in the Big 12 would be Texas/ Nebraska...
