    Re: How to beat Baylor

    Baylor runs a lot of quick-hitters. If you blitz, you have to get there or you leave your corners 1 on 1 with some fantastic athletes (although they are having some injury issues at WR, IIRC). At the same time, Baylor is too effecient at what they do to expect them to make many mistakes with a bend but don't break mentality.

    Pick your poison, either blitz and hope to force big plays, or wait back and hope they make a mistake. Either way, Baylor will score points, the offense most likely decide how close this game is.

    Re: How to beat Baylor

    Against a team like this, best defense is probably an effective ball-control offense. Burn clock, get first downs, score touchdowns on every possession. Basically the opposite of what we did last year: go three and out every possession.

    Baylor thrives when they can pounce on you quick and pin their ears back on defense. Don't give them that chance and maybe we can frustrate them a bit.

    Re: How to beat Baylor

    I think I'd do the same thing we did the last time or two we beat them.

    Re: How to beat Baylor

    Sit back and let the play stay in front of you. Swarm to the ball and hope to get some turnovers. On offense you need to slow it down.

    Re: How to beat Baylor

    Against a QB and offense like this, you have to keep them guessing and do anything you can to make the QB feel uncomfortable in the pocket. Cannot consistently give them the same look, Petty will carve up our D if that happens, and he may do that anyway.

    Whatever we did last year worked pretty well.

    I have it on good authority that the focus on the of the game plan revolves around not cutting the grass during the away and off weeks

    Re: How to beat Baylor

    Tejas, I agree that the best defense is a good offense that eats the clock. I think its an absolute must that our offense sustains long drives that eat up the clock. Baylor as well as Oregon have a hard time finding a rythem for their offense when they are sitting on the bench.

    Ding! Ding! Ding! Tell Tejas what he wins, Bob!!

    This is the answer. They can't score if they aren't on the field. We need to keep doing what we did against Iowa...ball control. 3 plays to get a first down, if need be. Some nice 8-9 minute drives and keep Petty sitting on his thumbs on the sidelines.

    We still have to play to win and not get too conservative, however.

    KSU and TCU played them pretty close last year, in those games it was controlling the time of possession. That seems to be the best recipe for success.....
