Definitely still in that "nothing to lose" territory and it has worked out perfectly so far. Win tonight by continuing to play fast and loose and the Tech game, essentially, becomes colossal.

I'm sure he'll mature but I hope he loses that Perry Jones thousand yard stare soon.
rudylaw

And that's the promise of Clark. Nice move!

Those warmup shirts are terrific. That's the kind of stuff Baylor is ALWAYS doing, yet, is never covered. At least the folks in Austin are witness.
Thankful Bear

I was just thinking along similar terms. Clark looks too nice. He needs a little more edge.
rudylaw
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Very workmanlike performance this first 1/4!

15-11 Bears with Wannabe Walton going to the line. Looked like Vital got shoved there on the rebound.

8-0 run for Whorn. 15-14 with under 6 to play. Setting the game back about 4 decades.
EGOTbear

Ever since Shaka took that TO, we have been totally outclassed.
