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.

If anyone listen to the radio broadcast, zero improvement. None expected. Decades of confusion

I always wondered how it felt to be UT but I wonder if they feel as guilty about it as I do right now…
They do not feel the least bit guilty. They are just getting what they paid for.

These refs are straight up garbage. All the ridiculous calls our way this half will turn in the second half at the most critical time.

Observations:

--Baylor looking very good to open with a 17-7 lead on the road.

--That one call on ISU was questionable, but they had 3 other penalties that were pretty obvious.

--Nice to see Doyle get another offensive score!! I believe that's his 4th career TD for Baylor.

--Baylor is taking the crowd out of the game.

--Matt Campbell looked like he's about to explode after that penalty!

--The Bears seem to be getting better as the game progresses.

Sic 'em Bears!

Meaningless aside: really dumb USAA commercial touting how you save on your insurance by not answering your phone, when if you had answered your phone your wife would have reminded you to get ice.

Our defense is looking great with the 3 and out.

I have not seen a single targeting by Baylor the announcers keep claiming to see. They seem a little over obsessed since that targeting call on ISU
jdrs

Great to see so little of our defense on the field in the first half.
BaylorGrad09
How long do you want to ignore this user?
I missed the targeting on the first drive, but it must have been a bad call because now any hard tackle and the announcers are calling for targeting.
CorsicanaBear
How long do you want to ignore this user?
The targeting was righteous by the rules. But the rules suck.

Time to put them away.

The targeting in the first drive looked valid to me, but there was another penalty against ISU that was doubtful and there were a couple Baylor plays that some thought were targeting. They were not the same thing.

It looked like he hit our player above the waist and slipped down- didn't look intentional…I think Campbell was justifiably upset.

Really bad blocking from the backfield.

Iowa State defense is good. Now we have to punt

So we throw when we should run and run when we should throw. Three and out.

We have a 230 pound back… why on earth is he not being used on these 3rd and very shorts. That was a head scratcher of a play call by Grimes there

Ok we didn't score..but I would've like to have burned more clock..we need to keep this at least 2 score game because we will get robbed 2nd half.
