Quotes of the Week

Senior Offensive Lineman Connor Galvin

"We know it's going to be loud, we know it's going to be rowdy. We know it's going to be one of those games where it's going to be down to the last play. That's just how Iowa State is, a lot of respect for them. So, it's just how we practice vs. how they practice."

Sophomore Linebacker Brooks Miller

"It's just so early. We're going to become so much better. Like in December, we're going to look back now and be like, wow, how were we running it that way, and now we're running it like this." 

Head Coach Dave Aranda

"I just feel that, as far as the view of who we want to be and consistently look like, I'd say Iowa State, is that in a lot of ways. They don't beat themselves, they are efficient with all their movements, and kind of what they do." 


Analysis of the Week

SicEm365 Analyst Sam Bradshaw

You have to take away Iowa State’s running game and Xavier Hutchinson. I think Baylor can rely on their front five to limit the run effectively as they’ve done to virtually everyone over the last year. This should get some additional help on wherever Hutchinson is. Additionally, Dekkers hasn’t seen anyone good blitz him with much regularity so there is certainly a place in the game plan for creepers and simulated pressures to get after the kid and make the new guy prove he won’t cough up the ball. He lost a ton of accuracy when Ohio got pressure on him so he may not handle pressure all that well yet.

However, my bigger takeaway is BU is going to have to do better not busting assignments. Last year Iowa State had several wide-open passes to the Tight Ends and Running Backs that Baylor simply didn’t have anyone covering.

Going for it twice on 4th and short. Big cajones results in a massive Sims TD. Too bad Monaray couldn't catch the same type of throw.

It's a coach Aranda staple. 4th and short and he likes to go for it, sometimes even on the Baylor side of the field.

Feel like the refs are gonna be watching our D really closely to make up the early 30 yards worth of penalties we got

Last year I was in the stands in San Marcos and didn't have to listen to the disaster that was the TV crew, but I can't imagine they were much worse than todays announcers.

It was really hot in Waco last week at this time. But we looked about 90% full for TSU.

This "D" doesn't hold a candle to last years. Holes at all 3 levels.

Maybe for that .03 of a second where he crossed the plane he wasn't bobbling the ball, but he was before and after.

I don't think they would've overturned it… But I was also shocked they did not at least look at it

It was close..but I think when his knee hit line he still had control.. definitely not enough to overturn.
