I'm a bit worried about this. Students on Spring Break, and even some locals out of town as well. Really hoping to see some good energy in The Foster tonight…it makes a big difference for our Bears in these tough games.

It's Texas. It's our last regular season game vs Texas for a long time. And it's senior night. The Baylor faithful should be out in force.

On top of all that the weather is beautiful!

You guys worry about opposing fans wayyyy too much..

And especially UT basketball fans....it'll be usual 250-300 who drive in from Axtell and Pflugerville after buying a T-shirt at Walmart for the game.

You're not a real man unless you:

A) Use 'sir' and 'ma'am' when greeting your elders

B) Smile often

C) Keep your word, and

D) Send Texas home crying

That which does not kill me, will try again and get nastier

These Texas fouls are looking scary like an injury could happen at any time
