Greetings ladies and gentlemen. In lieu of recording something extra on Christmas night, the intrepid Mattisbear took the initiative and sat down with Matt Sayman earlier this week. Matt is a Baylor alum and author of The Leftovers: Basketball, Baylor, Betrayal and Beyond. He was one of the few to stick around when Coach Scott Drew came to Baylor and started this incredible run.

Matt sat down with... Matt for about half an hour of basketball talk. They cover the book and the events surrounding the coaching transition, adjusting to Coach Scott Drew's style, this year's team and an appearance he'll be making at an upcoming Baylor basketball game on January 11. You definitely don't want to miss this.

If you haven't picked it up yet, The Leftovers is available on his website, theleftoversbook.comAmazon, or Barnes & Noble. Definitely check it out, it's a great read and you'll fly through it. It would make a great late Christmas present!

No clever title this week, just the white hot truth: The Baylor Bears are Big 12 Champs. 

That's right folks. It's finally edited. You watched it live, now listen to it… edited. Between uploading issues, show derailments and dog talk, this may have been the most difficult episode to edit. But it's done, and now ready for your enjoyment. Join Mark, Prashanth, Amy Pagitt and Peter (again) as we exult in the triumph of the Baylor Bears over the Texas Longhorns to clinch the first-ever Big 12 Championship and trip to a BCS Bowl Game. You'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll probably shake your head in disgust. It's all good.

If you missed the original recording and have a deep, burning desire (you should probably get that checked out) to watch it again, you can check it out right here. Then you can come back and listen to the edited show. It's about a whole 15 minutes shorter! Wow!

News Team, Assemble (live version)!

THE BAYLOR BEARS ARE BIG 12 CHAMPIONS AND ARE GOING TO THE FIESTA BOWL. Is there anything else that's really newsworthy? I guess maybe one or two things. But THE BAYLOR BEARS ARE BIG 12 CHAMPIONS! (It's still really fun to type)

Texas Recap

Dominating performance by the defense, the offense wakes up, KJ gets a pick-six negated by a stupid, stupid call (as well as having another possible INT bounce off the back of his helmet. DOINK.), and much, much more. We get a little sidetracked, too. But that's not really anything new.

Picks of the Week

Prashanth is the man. Peter did pretty well, too. So did Mark. Amy picked Duke. Heh heh heh. Oh Amy.

Bear Droppings

You know the drill. It's calls. And you can still call That Good Ol' Baylor Phone Line! Do it!

Greetings, fellow ODBers. This may surprise and even delight you, but it's time for another episode of OurDailyPodcast. Please, contain your joy. Or don't, either way is fine by me. As long as your unrestrained joy is at minimum decibel levels. We can't have you going into the game on Saturday with even the hint of hoarseness. You're going to need your voice all day long.

Before we get to the show notes, I want to make a special request that's also in the photo caption. Can we make sure that Fringe Monster is saved a spot on the front row of the stands after running the field? Fringe Monster certainly deserves to be front and center. Fringe Monster has become somewhat of a talisman, I feel. Let's make this happen, good people of Our Daily Bears.

On to the Show Notes!

News Team Assemble!

You all know this, but students CRUSHED the ticket draw in less than 48 hours. It's a little sad that so many students won't be able to get into the game, but you have to remember that the South Endzone was sold out months ago. There will be onsite watch parties happening, so maybe there will be some way that some magic can happen.

Don't forget about The Official ODB Meetup! Check out the link for the details and location. It's going to be fun. Can somebody bring name tags?

A little bit of Podcast news! Amy Pagitt will join us Sunday for a special episode. Listen to the pod for more details!

Let's Talk Texas

And I'm not talking about the state. We can all agree that the state of Texas is the greatest state. No, we're talking about the big game this weekend, and everything you could possibly want to know about it! Offense! Defense! Weather! HOW WILL TEXAS BE ABLE TO STAND THIS WEATHER WHEN THEY'RE SO FAR SOUTH OF WACO AND COMPLETELY NOT USED TO PLAYING IN THESE CONDITIONS LIKE THE BEARS ARE? These are the burning questions that we struggle with and attempt, to the best of our ability, to answer.

Picks of the Week!

Lots of picks of the week this week, though only two Big 12 slate games Since Lil' Amy P is going to be joining us on Sunday, her picks are included!


Special Audio!

In honor of the very last game played at The Case and the last regular season preview episode for football season, I put together a little audio segment with the help of some of the friends of ODP*. I hope you enjoy it. Oh yeah, it also did produce the Google Voice Transcript of the Week, too:

MattisBear: Hey guys, It's Matt, is there trying on working and I faxed in on Saturday. I don't see how we lose this one with emotion, implications on. And Don't go to work on longhorns. I said, we went by. 3 touchdowns and potentially wanted to feel well, one top of that give us and 4521 way fingers.

*Kirobaito also sent in his prediction as yet another esteemed guest of the show; sadly, something happened with his audio message and his prediction cut out completely; I didn't realize it until it was too late to get him to resend his prediction. Sorry about that Kirobaito! Know that you are loved and appreciated all the same.

Questions for ODBers

Given my focus on getting the audio segment together and asking you guys to call in with your predictions, I completely forgot to ask for No Huddles and Community Feedback questions until very late. We did get a couple of questions, though, so we decided to pose them to you here!

From @BaylorRising: Is the reason we are projected to not get an at large bid because of  size, recentness of loss or brand?

From @JohnJayMJr: I'm curious about other BU fans interactions w/ UT fans so far this week/year. So far for me, they've been incredibly nice & respectful. What about everyone else?

Also, don't forget to stay tuned after the show for the predictions and calls of those who lent their voices to our efforts! To all who called That Good Ol' Baylor Phone Line, thank you very much!

Greetings, friends, we're back in action a day later than normal but putting our signature spin on the weekend's events! Prashanth, Mark, and I are all back this week to talk some TCU recap, amazeballs student fan ticket draw, recap Peter's horrific odds laying skills in Picks of the week, listen to your Bear Droppings (in record numbers!), and much much more.

News & Notes

  • Bryce Petty Commits to Baylor! Oh wait, that doesn't sound right. Bryce Petty is coming back for his Senior Season! There, that's better.
  • 6700+ student tickets were pulled in the first 7 hours that the tickets were made available. Students are TURNT!
  • Gary Patterson said something about somebody, I think. We talk a little bit about that. (Bonus points for who can identify the drop I use in this segment)


TCU Recap

Lots of fun here. As hard as that game was to watch, there are really good points to take away from the game, and there are many positives to look at heading into Texas on Saturday.

Picks of the Week

Mark: 5-2
Fank: 3-4
Prashanth: 3-4
Peter: 2-5

Bear Droppings!

Some seriously good calls this week, and in record number yet again! Thanks for sending those in. Remember, call That Good Ol' Baylor Phone Line at (774) 25-SICEM (257-4236) to leave us your questions, feedback, and Bear Droppings! Save that number to your phone. Then call us from The Case on Saturday. Or immediately thereafter, if you don't freeze. You know, it's all good.


Since we are getting this show out a day later than normal, I'm going to go ahead and give my special request today so that you have a full 24 hours to respond. Here's what I'd like you to do:

Between now and tomorrow afternoon, call That Good Ol' Baylor Phone Line at (774) 25-SICEM and leave us your game predictions on the line! Identify yourself (your name or your ODB screen name, or twitter, any of the above would work fine), give your prediction for the game and what bowl you want to see the Bears in (that's attainable). If you want to add in a clever prediction or something witty, that's fine too, but make sure to predict the game and the bowl.

Can you guys do that for me? If enough call in and do that, I'll append your predictions onto the end of the show. If someone nails the score correctly, we might see about doing something fun. Thanks!
