Brittney Griner came out early in high school, but while being recruited, was concerned that her sexuality would be an issue at Baylor, a Baptist school. "Big Girl, I don't care what you are," Griner said her future coach Kim Mulkey told her. "You can be black, white, blue, purple, whatever. As long as you come here… » 4/15/14 3:38pm 4/15/14 3:38pm

​Why Baylor Is Porn For Football Nerds

In football, which operates on a tight cycle of coaching innovation and theft, it's rare to see enormous outliers. The college game is littered with coaches who found one legitimate schematic advantage, rode it for a year or two, watched it become the norm, and fell back to the pack once they could no longer… » 11/21/13 12:23pm 11/21/13 12:23pm

Adorable Kid Rushes The Court In The Middle Of A Game

This moment, from last night's Oklahoma-Baylor game, isn't quite as adorable as two dogs invading a soccer pitch, but it's still pretty goddamn cute. With about nine minutes left in the second half, one pint-sized Baylor fan decided that it would be a good idea to rush the court. We're not sure what the kid was… » 1/31/13 10:30am 1/31/13 10:30am

A Skeptic's Guide To The 2012 Heisman Trophy

Remember the lullaby afternoons of September, when we all figured we'd see a Heisman winner who merited the award? Maybe a Geno Smith, slinging the ball all over the yard, or even a Matt Barkley, who despite being named after Big Bird's dog had the right pedigree and weaponry (Robert Woods and Marquise Lee catching… » 12/08/12 10:45am 12/08/12 10:45am

Lache Seastrunk Puts Team On His Back, Scores 76-Yard TD Run Despite…

Baylor running back Lache Seastrunk has been a one-man Motorin' machine this season, and nothing demonstrates his tenacity and rushing ability more than this long touchdown run today against Oklahoma State, two-thirds of which appear to have been completed after Seastrunk injured his leg.

Why Did Sports Illustrated Colorize Baylor's Black Uniforms? [UPDATE: SI

Today the Dallas Morning News photography blog noted something interesting about last week's issue of Sports Illustrated: in the "Leading Off" section, a photo from Baylor's upset win over Kansas State shows the Bears wearing green jerseys.

Kansas State Gets Blown Out By Baylor And Oregon Falls To Stanford At…

A week from college football's end-of-season reckoning and Kansas State and Oregon, ranked first and second respectively in the BCS standings going into today's games, have taken their first losses of the season. The defeats likely pave the way for a new BCS leader in (gulp) Notre Dame, a 38-0 winner today against… » 11/18/12 12:30am 11/18/12 12:30am

Here's The Catch Of The Day, From The Offensive Explosion That Was…

Ooooh-wheee, that was a good one. It wasn't quite as close as it looked in the end—70-56 until Baylor struck one last time with about three minutes left, whereupon the Mountaineers were able to run the clock down—but it was back-and-forth for most of the game. West Virginia bled the clock partly with the help of the… » 9/29/12 4:48pm 9/29/12 4:48pm
