    I agree
    I agree, and as a Baylor fan I know that good teams can start slow and end hot as my Bears did last year, WVU and UT may yet turn their seasons into good ones...but it is ironic that for the first time since 1991 when Baylor was ranked as high as 8, that other people will be playing spoiler to their season instead of the other way around

    Tech's QB hasn't played yet because of injury. They've played 2 true freshmen but Michael Brewer is a 3rd year guy who is the best QB on campus and will start in a few weeks when he is fully back.

    Getting a win over TCU with the kid QBs was huge. By the time Tech faces another challenge Brewer will be back.

    Tech will have 6 wins in 6 games....

    Baylor's 5 hardest games of the year are the last 5.
    They are very similar to Tech in schedule and both should be ranked top 15 by the time the worm turns and they face tougher clubs.

    Baylor should have 4 very winnable games with WVU, IST, KST, KU
    Then it gets tougher with OU, Tech, OKST, TCU, UT

    Tech is basically in the same boat.

    Overall come Bowl season the Big 12 will win a lot of games again and finish with a lot of top 25 clubs again.

    OK, well, if you want to talk about Ohio State, that's OK with me but in this thread, the discussion is about Baylor and how good they will be. However, the same argument applies to OSU so it's not like I'm bias. Neither have played anybody and right now, you don't know how good or bad either are.

    Yep, if they stay focused they have a good shot of being 7-0 going into the OU Thursday Night game...which I have a ticket to, huzzah!

    I only used ohio St. as a comparison of a supposedly top 5 team doing less than Baylor against comparable and in the case of buffalo identical competition.

    OK State goes down. It's looking more and more that they're not really great - no running game like in previous years and just not enough playmakers on offense. Baylor and OU clearly ahead of them

    The guys on the pregame show said it would be a blowout in the Cowboys favor & they would score 50 on the WV D.

    WVU's D is not the problem, those guys have been lights out this year. They gave up 37 to Maryland because our O gave them the ball 3 times inside the 20. We might of found our QB today in the Florida St transfer Trickett, I'm still not buying stock yet with Baylor on the horizon.

    WVU is back in the mix for a bowl, and with a little luck the Big 12. They have a much improved defense from a year ago, impressive play yesterday and against OU by their D. Real interested to see if Baylor is up for that challenge.

    They're definitely hyping up the Big 12 opener at Baylor, the Bears are apparently unveiling their new uniforms on national tv for the first time.

    That is sure to be a controversial ending in Aimes, Iowa for some time.

    Dirty, dirty, dirty. 1000x worth an ejection more than any of the stupid targeting penalties I've seen so far

    I don't know how they handle this type of thing in college ball. You can't fine him but that type of thing needs to be dealt with.

    I only saw the little clip on here but it appears the player was not involved in the play so no need to block him & chop his knees out.

    I didn't even know that game was on. I'll be honest I'd root for Texas every time but that play was just wrong.

    I don't like cheap shots. No matter the team.

    Mack Brown defended it too, saying he thought Davis was "competing."
