    Maybe the best player you don't hear much about in the country. Really happy for him.

    Rooting hard for him, was a bummer to hear about that last year. Pitts been sneakily getting better over the last few years, hope he can guide them to a better year.
  7. Art Briles fired from Baylor.

    And while everyone is talking about Briles, they reassigned their president and suspended the AD. So yeah, still not close to good enough.

    That report must be significantly worse than expected. Starr would've made for an incredibly convenient fall guy, so letting Briles go means they knew they'd have absolutely no choice.

    Have to think Chad Morris and maybe Cumbie are going to get a call.

    Video: Kirk Herbstreit burns Baylor on SportsCenter for being ‘disrespected’

    "Earlier today, Baylor announced the firing of football coach Art Briles, the reassignment of the school president, and that the AD has been placed on probation — all stemming from a sexual assault scandal that seemingly continues to get worse by the minute.

    ESPN television analyst Kirk Herbstreit joined SportsCenter this afternoon to discuss the situation and didn’t hold back, but even went as far to say that he’d “never been more disrespected in my entire career” during a recent trip to campus.

    Herbstreit says he was “called out” by Baylor’s strength and conditioning coach for saying that TCU was a better team the previous year, which got a rise out of the players, who were “hooting and hollering” at him following the comments."

    So in other words,

    "Listen, I know that young women were sexually assaulted and that the school tried to cover it up... but what y'all don't understand is that I'M the real victim here! I was disagreed with !!!! Can you imagine !?" - Kirk Herbstreit

    Holy shit, what an absolute joke.

    Edit: Unrelated, but also an absolute joke - Baylor telling incoming freshman they won't be released from their LOIs. Get us out of this conference.

    Baylor isn't releasing incoming LOI's? That's shocking, if true..

    stupider like a fox

    This is a HUGE issue with LOIs though. If there's any sort of personnel change, they should be able to look elsewhere - as long as they haven't started at the school. This happened to Mike Weber last year when Ohio State's RB coach bailed after signing day.

    Return of a Championship game in the Big 12 is nice.

    I don't mind the Big XII bringing the Title game back. Not sure there's enough evidence to conclude that the Conference is in any way disadvantaged without one, but it can't hurt. Glad Bowlsby is moving the expansion timeline along, too.

    I wish they'd balance things so every conference could just do 9 team round robin.

    Baylor donors trying to bring Briles back in 2017 and have this be a one-year suspension. Technically, he has not been relieved as coach. He is still suspended even though the first round of voting was 18-15 to terminate. Apparently the big donors are trying to rally the troops, but the majority seem to understand he needs to go.

    While that is happening, some players who are in the process of trying to clear their names from cases, or have cleared their names, are being let go of their scholarships.
