Bowl Bound

It was just a short while ago that Baylor defeated Kansas State, causing the fans to rush the field in excitement as Baylor became bowl eligible for the first time in fifteen years.

Well, tomorrow, for the first time in sixteen years (yes the last time we were bowl eligible we did not get an invite to a bowl thanks to the Southwest Conference's limited bowl agreements), Baylor will be playing in a bowl game.

So tomorrow, in front of over 60,000 people at Reliant Stadium, Baylor will play Illinois in the Texas Bowl.

So, if you can't be there in person, flip on your televisions at 5:00 p.m. Central Time tomorrow and tune in to ESPN.  Put on some green and gold.  Shout "Heeeeey, Sic Em Bears!" at kickoff.  Enjoy the moment.

I watched, but it didn't seem to help. Fumbling punts doesn't help either. GT fumbled two and fumbled inside the ten yard line after a 12 minute drive. Man, oh man.

New book, "Holding On To The Ball, and Other Secrets Of Success."

PS, I thought y'all got a raw deal on the offensive pass interference call down on about the ten yard line; the replay looked like the defender was holding on first.

Yeah - so GT lost, BU lost. Does this bode poorly for Mitchell and Auburn?

I don't know. Hope not. I'd like to somebody win that I sort of support.
