After months of courting presentations from expansion lottery hopefuls and generally leading the world of college football on, the Big 12 Conference is NOT expanding. This comes as a surprise to no one, most likely, but it's still somewhat ridiculous, given all the talk of "psychological disadvantages" and openness to expansion of the past few months. Still, though, the conference is keeping its plan of adding a Conference Championship Game in place, because that's still a GREAT idea (it's not). 

We're talking about that! We're talking about Homecoming! We're talking about the first half of the season! Much, much more. Get it.


After a week off, ODP is back, talking about some of the more exciting moments from last weekend, the relative size of college metropolitan areas, population requirements for Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, and other really important things like how many levels could Patrick Levels level.

We're talking about just how impressive this defense was, despite being completely gassed and giving up ALL the yards on third downs. Because when you look closely, it really was dang impressive.

Fank and Peter are back to recap the SMU game. We're discussing our impressions of the White Out - how it looked both in person and on television. We're talking offensive struggles, Seth Russell's accuracy issues, stone hands problems, and how comparisons of some of these early-season struggles to the first two games of last year are keeping us from panicking. We're confident that the offensive issues will get sorted out in due time. Both lines struggled, but the defense really kicked it into gear after the first quarter, and definitely came out of halftime ready to play.

Patrick Levels had himself another fantastic game, and we got to see the return of Orion Stewart to dominance, with one touchdown-saving interception and then scored on his second interception of the game. Davion Hall got to use his height to his advantage, as well as his wide receiver hands in jumping up to snag an interception in the end zone. Some real bright spots in this game. 

Plus we're talking wild finishes in the Big 12. Fun times.

Mark and Peter take back to the airwaves after a 4+ month hiatus to discuss... Well, everything. A lot has happened since the last podcast. Peter's wife had a baby. Yay! Some unpleasant basketball happened. Boo. And... All the rest of it. 

Sigh.

We have to talk about it, at least for a bit. Art Briles is no longer the head football coach. Ian McCaw is no longer the Athletic Director. All but one of the 2017 commits decided to reopen their recruiting. A sizable chunk of the 2016 class, which had signed Letters of Intent, were released and have selected new schools. And then there's the matter of Jarrett Stidham.

But...

The nucleus of the 2016 squad is still here. We may have some depth issues on the offensive and defensive lines, but the 2016 team is still in pretty good shape, all things considered. 

And we have a new Athletic Director. Mack Rhoades is in. Media Days are figuratively right around the corner. 

Football is coming.

  • Immediate Impact Potential
  • Any Needs?
  • The Cornerbacks
  • Some background on the Parrish Cobb Recruiting Saga*
  • Insight into the recruiting process
  • A bit about the offense (but honestly we’re spending most of our time on the defense)
  • Listener Questions!

*This is something that Colt’s promised to tell on BearsTruth after National Signing Day, but decided to go ahead and share with us on the podcast as well. We’re thankful.

A huge thanks to Colt for joining us on the podcast!

If you haven’t looked yet, you should probably keep an eye peeled outside of your house, around your neighborhood or place of employment, because there’s a good chance that Johnny Jefferson will have either ran past your house or will in the very near future. We said on the Preview podcast (or perhaps the Texas recap? I forget) that he would have to have a monster day to hit 1,000 yards rushing and, boy, did he ever. He hit the mark right on the nose, with 299 yards rushing in the game to become Baylor’s second 1000-yard rusher for the 2015 season.

So yeah, we’re talking Johnny Jeff. What else? I’m glad you asked!

The Stuff

  • Happy New Year!
  • College Football Playoff on New Years’ Eve (ugh)
  • Possible solutions to the situation
  • Playoff Results
  • New Years Six Bowl Results
  • Big 12 Bowl recap
  • THE RUSSELL ATHLETIC BOWL!!!
    • Crow is eaten
    • But mostly, we’re marveling at:
    • Coaching staff
    • Stable of RBs and snap-takers
    • Johnny Jefferson
    • Offensive Line
    • More!

This was SUCH a fun game, and we’re glad to have gotten to take part in it.

Question for the Commentariat

How do you feel about a) those games being on New Years’ Eve instead of New Years Day or later and b) the CFP games not being the last bowl games of the season? What are your thoughts on fixing?


Merry Christmas, everyone! Our gift to you this Christmas Eve is a podcast! Because we love you and we’re here to entertain you while you travel, do your last minute shopping, or whatever. We podcast, you decide.

Mark returns to the podcast for a preview of the Russell Athletic Bowl, the Baylor Bears, the North Carolina Tar Heels, and everything involved therein. Before we get to the topics, though, I hope you notice that I put together a special introduction this week, paying homage to the most dynamic receiver in the country, Biletnikoff winner Corey Coleman. I had hoped to be able to do this after the bowl game and add in whatever scores he had against UNC, but sadly, that is not to be. So, I hope you enjoy it. Here’s what we’re talking about:

  • The injury situation to Jarrett Stidham, Shock Linwood, Coleman, and possibly Patrick Colbert
  • What this offense will look like without those players
  • Self-scouting and “conventional wisdom”
  • The Tar Heel defense, its strengths, weaknesses, and aggressive secondary
  • How often do we see the WildBear?
  • UNC’s offense and their weapons. Do they seem somewhat familiar to you?
  • The weather
  • Much more about the game
  • Briefly: Texas’ OC hire, A&M’s QB transfers, Kylo Ren’s decision to Transfer from Texas A&M
  • Overcast: a podcasting app for iOS

We hope you enjoy the podcast, and have a very Merry Christmas!

A loss is a loss. There’s no getting around that. But that doesn’t begin to sum up what happened on Saturday when the Bears played host to the Longhorns. Though the Longhorns were ultimately victorious, that second half was some of the most fun I’ve had watching football in quite a long time. Mark and I are back on the podcast to talk about that, the Playoff a bit, and more. Here’s what we’re talking about:

  • A measure of perspective on this season (we’ll do a full recap at some point)
  • Baylor lands in the Russell Athletic Bowl
  • The RAB Twitter account makes us excited about the bowl
  • The Texas Game
  • The halftime adjustments, and credit where it is due
  • Peter’s random halftime lunch experience
  • The defensive performance
  • We’d like more, please
  • The Big 12 OOC scheduling requirement
  • The Playoffs and New Years Six bowls (as well as the Alamo Bowl)
  • Rico Gathers (no, really)

Mark and Peter decided to do a live podcast on December 3, and this was the result. It's the final episode of the season, and we're talking about the Coaching Carousel, the TCU game a bit, plus looking ahead to Saturday's matchup with Texas.

Happy Thanksgiving, everybody! Because of the holiday, we went ahead and recorded a podcast a day early, just like we promised that we would do! As teased on the last episode, BearsTruth’s Amy Pagitt makes her triumphant return to the podcast this week! Also, recording on a Tuesday night has the added benefit of bring right after the announcement of the College Football Playoff Rankings, so we’re talking about that a bit in this episode. Finally, some rankings to not send your blood pressure through the roof! That’s some good news. Let’s do this.

Here’s some of the stuff we’re talking about:

  • Gary Patterson’s strange logic behind his decision to go for 2 against OU
  • The College Football Playoff Rankings - hey, Baylor’s in a pretty decent spot!
  • TCU in Fort Worth on Friday
  • The Injuries
  • The Weather and which team an inclement weather game favors
  • The Revivalry
  • Reader Questions! Woohoo!
  • Picks of the week
  • Bristol Palin’s baby Sailor. Sorry, that should be “baby, Sailor.” She doesn’t have a baby sailor, though if anyone were to put an infant to work swabbing the decks, I guess it would be Bristol Palin. Anyway, don’t let this deter you from listening. We don’t really talk about it. Except for Amy.

Hope you enjoy this one! Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!

  • Andrew Billings
  • Travon Blanchard
  • Shawn Oakman
  • Grant Campbell setting the tone
  • Some refereeing talk
  • All the rest

Mark was indisposed on recording day, so Peter went solo for the podcast this week. There's a ton to talk about and another live show just wasn't in the cards. We've been putting off talking about OU long enough, so here you go.

Topics:

  • College GameDay
  • McLane Stadium Atmosphere AND FLYOVER
  • Oklahoma
  • CFP Rankings
  • ALL the injuries
  • Oklahoma State

There's a ton there, but given the fact that it's only Peter, "we" make short work of the podcast. If you have feedback, let me know, I'd love to hear it.

Mark and Peter returned to the live format to preview College GameDay, the BlackOUt game against Oklahoma, and take listener questions from the blog. What ensued was a generally wheels-off podcast, which is always fun! About an hour into the thing, TV's Greg Tepper decided to stop by and further derail the entire thing to fun and entertaining effect!

 

Remember: TEPPER LOVES BAYLOR signs for GameDay!

PODCAST TIME!

I gotta tell you, this was a tough podcast to get up for. K-State was a challenging game and I mean no disrespect to the Wildcats or anyone associated with them… It’s just that the game was several days ago, and there’s been some massive shifting that’s taken place in the Big 12 (plus some great news about GameDay, etc.) since the game took place. That said, once we’re back in the swing of things, we’re rolling. Let’s get to it!

What are We Talking About?

These are mostly from memory because, like the true pro that I am, I forgot to jot down our topics as we covered them.

  • First things first, some big news in the world of recruiting dropped literally right before we started to record. We’re talking about that.
  • Recapping Kansas State
  • Stidham’s “underwhelming” (LOL) performance - goodness gracious he looked good
  • The game plan on both sides of the ball
  • The defensive performance and what we can take away from this
  • The rest of the Big 12 action
  • The College Football Playoff and the rankings: Both the good and the bad.
  • Oh yeah - COLLEGE GAMEDAY! Really, don’t do a 61–58 sign. Be better.
  • 5-Star Review Shoutouts!

Who do you want to be the College GameDay guest picker? Let us know in the comments.

As the shock of the injury to Seth Russell began to wear off and the reality that Jarrett Stidham was now the Bears quarterback for the foreseeable future, there seemed to emerge two threads on our new quarterback: 1) he’s a true freshman and people don’t think true freshman can’t take a team all the way and, 2) Stidham isn’t your average true freshman. He doesn’t think like a true freshman, act like a true freshman, or play like one. This comes from sources we tend to believe: The coaches and players. Instead of talking about the first, I feel that the why behind the second thread is far more interesting. What makes people gush with praise about him when he’s been on Baylor’s campus for less than a year?

I decided to turn to Greg Tepper, one of the state’s leading experts on high school football. He graciously agreed to return to the podcast to discuss Stid’s skillsets and what we can expect from the quarterback. And then we proceeded to talk about that and basically everything else, too.

Be forewarned: this podcast is long. Sorry. It’s also all over the place. How quickly it went off the rails (10 minutes before I hit the record button) can only be described as Isbearian. Expect a true cold open because we just got right to the discussions and I realized it was good audio, so I hit the record button. Anyway, here’s what we’re talking about:

  • The blog’s humble yet auspicious beginnings
  • Conference realignment (huh)
  • Dave Campbell pops up everywhere
  • Candy Corn (we had to)
  • Jarrett Stidham, his abilities, and what causes others to lavish him with praise at this stage
  • ACC vs. Big 12 Refs
  • Mark and Tepper talk more about how TCU & Baylor “are the same” - ready your emails and pitchforks
  • The Art Briles heel turn
  • International soccer… ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
  • Television’s Greg Tepper
  • The Big 4 of the Big 12
  • GP’s end-of-game handshake with Dana Hologram

There’s a lot packed into this episode, folks. I hope you enjoy it.

This was probably the most difficult time I've ever had coming up with a podcast title. Simply put, we are devastated for Seth Russell. Our prayers are with you, Seth, and we hope for a quick and complete recovery.

Well, we’ve got some weather headed our way this weekend. The Cyclones! Iowa State is coming to town. Oh yeah, there’s also some really wild weather patterns that have done some stuff to our university’s plans for Homecoming. For the first time since 1936, Baylor has had to cancel many Homecoming festivities like the bonfire, the parade, and more. But don’t you worry! Pigskin is still a go. Also, the game. They’re playing this game, regardless of how much it’s raining. Get your ponchos ready!

The Podcast will not be impacted by weather! sorta.

  • Mark’s trip has been canceled due to Hurricane Patricia (which may or may not be the cause of the rain in Waco? We’ll call it a contributing factor). Sorry, all you aspiring ODB account tweeters.
  • There’s some rain headed our way, and it’s sogging up plans for Homecoming. A bummer, but the game must go on!
  • Canceling the bonfire and the parade makes us sad. It makes my wife and I sad because a 1 & 3 year old girls in their little cheerleader outfits at the Homecoming parade is SUPER ADORABLE.
  • This is the first Homecoming Parade since 1936 to be canceled. I’m pretty sure I said 1937 on the podcast.
  • Impact of the rain on the game: Will there or won’t there be?
  • Oh yeah: COMMENTARIAT PARTICIPATION ALERT (see details below)
  • Previewing the game and how it might play out
  • Your questions!
  • Picks of the week!

That’s what we’re talking about for the most part folks! Woohoo.
