    A question to any Baylor fans checking in on us

    Why did your players pull out the Gatorade bath for winning a game in which you were a 30+ point favorite? That just seemed odd.

    Re: A question to any Baylor fans checking in on us

    Bowl eligibility.

    Briles is huge on having something to play for every game. Against KSU, it was revenge for 2011 in Manhattan. WVU, it was revenge for 2012 in Morgantown. For you guys, it was two-fold---revenge for last year, and bowl eligibility. Against KU, it will be making up for that disaster of a performance in Lawrence in 2011 in what Briles calls "The greatest game no one saw."

    People forget that as recently as 3 seasons ago, this was a huge deal for us.

    Probably for the same reason ISU fans would try and tear down the goal posts after EVERY win when I was in school. It was something funny to do.

    all-sport was great in the 90s

    Also, Baylor is likely to be 12-0. I'd be celebrating a lot this season too. Embrace that sheet.

    It will still be huge for you for years to come once briles jumps ship after this season. This is baylors high water mark. Enjoy it while it lasts. You'll be us again soon.

    I love how this is everyones standard line, yet nobody can tell me WHY Briles would leave Baylor.


    1.) He's getting the newest, best stadium in the Big 12, right on I-35 where millions of people are going to see it every year.
    2.) He's in the top 3 in pay in the Big 12 already.
    3.) At Baylor, he's already a legend, and he has a lifetime contract. He will be able to dictate that his son takes the reigns after he retires. He can't do that at Texas.
    4.) As the thread about our senior starters shows, he's now reloading each year, not rebuilding. He's just started to get high-level talents (see: Robbie Rhodes, KD Cannon, etc), so he's got plenty of talent in the pipeline. Our backup quarterback (a RS-FR) has the 2nd-highest QB rating in the Big 12 --- behind our starter.


    He's not going anywhere, but I love everyone wish ill upon us.

    They kept saying their goal was "six after six", aka bowl eligible after six games. I'd bet that is it.

    Funny, we say the same thing. But for use it means six wins after six year. Got a good 1:1 ratio going

    They also won a conference game 71-7.

    71-7.


    I think I would have given myself the Gatorade bath had I been the coach.

    You've obviously not been paying attention if you believe this to be anything other than completely true.

    Sorry, they gave their coach a gatorade bath after that W?? Serious? You beat the current winless doormat team of the Big 12 and you douse your coach? That's pathetic.
