Friday, July 10, 2015 – Snarky Friday – Big 12 Football
Ann Richards is smiling over this headline.
“Baylor is the reason OU and Texas aren’t OU and Texas any more.”
Read on should you want all of the details with charts and graphs. But at this point in time, with 17 starters returning, I am going with Baylor.

- Biggest strength: KD Cannon and Corey Coleman lead what might be the deepest, most terrifying receiving corps in the country.
- Biggest question mark: Both the offense and defense must replace leaders named Bryce (quarterback Petty, linebacker Hager), and while almost everyone else is back, there’s a void until proven otherwise.
- Biggest 2015 game: The trip to TCU (Nov. 27), of course.
- In one sentence: Baylor returns 17 starters from a team that missed the Playoff by an eyelash last year; two leaders are gone, sure, but the Bears are the safest bet in the Big 12.
At least something in Texas makes former governor Richards smile. We all know the state of politics does not.
