A Good week to be a Bear November 11, 2009

It’s a good week to be a Baylor Bear.

First, BU football upset Missouri on Saturday to the shock and surprise of even Baylor’s most faithful supporters.  Sic Em.

Second, our women’s basketball team kicked off play this weekend.  Some may scoff at BU’s excitement, but when the highlight of the fall thus far is a “shocking upset” over a very mediocre Missourri football team, the sight of a signature Kim Mulkey pants suit is absolutely thrilling, as is our high ranking, as is our no 1 recruiting class coming in, AS IS the presence of All world recruit Brittany Griner who threw down a nifty dunk while posting up a girl (that’s right, no fast break cheap dunk like Candace Parker and a few others are able to do) in the Lady Bears first game. 

Girls play Tennessee on Nov 15th which should be a fun test. 

Three, BU men’s basketball is right around the corner (Saturday).  With the loss of a lot of experience talent and the gain of even more young talent mixed in with a good amount of experienced talent, it is hard to know what to expect.  Lots of talent, but lots of questions. 

Still, BU used up a year’s worth of injuries during football season, so they should be able to play fearlessly. 

Four, today it was announced that the Lady Bears signed the No 2 overall recruit in the nation and the Bears signed the No 3 overall recruit in the country for the 2010-11 season.   

It’s a good week to be a Bear.
