Editor’s Note: That was my bad running the Texas preview again earlier, had duplicates in the Drafts and got confused. -KM
Baylor, once the laughingstock of College Football in Texas (along with Rice, who doesn’t even really count), is at the currently the most successful in terms of wins and losses in the state of the past 3 years. They’re the only team from Texas to make a BCS Bowl since 2011, have had 2 double-digit win seasons in the past 3 years, and are the clear favorites to be the best team in the state right now. Unfortunately, I think the relative success (in comparison to the rest of program history) is going to be a bit of a high-water mark for them. With the previously-decaying Texas program being revitalized in the Charlie Strong era, the infusion of money and exposure Texas A&M will receive from the SEC Network, Kliff Kingsbury taking over Texas Tech (terrific recruiter and quarterback savant), and TCU emerging from a lull, Baylor’s tenure at the top will be brief. I still think they’ll be solid for years to come, Art Brile’s offensive acumen and extensive network of relationships from his time as a Texas High School Coaching legend alone will keep them respectable, I don’t see Baylor being a consistent Big 12 Contender in the long run.
Best Program Tradition:
Sic ‘em Bears makes me laugh every time for reason so I’m picking that.
Right now it’s set at 9.5. A curiously low number when you consider that they SHOULD be favored in every game they play except Oklahoma and maybe Texas depending on how the Longhorns look in the early season and bounce back from some the losses they’ve sustained this offseason. Last year Baylor was a top-25 defense (exactly top-25 actually, they ranked 25th by Football Outsiders). The offense was perhaps the most exciting outside of Eugene, Oregon with an average of over 60 points and nearly 700 yards per game, and destroyed the Sooners 41-12. Quarterback Bryce Petty’s return would indicate the offense should operate at a fairly high level, even with all three of his best offensive weapons being sophomores and a lot of his offensive line being replaced. The problem with Baylor, historically and currently, is depth. But as long as the Bears remain healthy, I don’t see them losing more than twice. I’ll cautiously take the over.
Obligatory Hype Video:
Hooooly shit. I love these near miss videos as much as any genre of viral video online. There is legitimately no reason this guy should have survived this situation but there he is, hanging out on top just ghost riding the whip. One of those moments that should theoretically change your life forever and make you cherish every minute you’re alive but would probably last only two days before you’re back to jerking off on a towel that’s stiff as an ironing board from months of splooge, sniffing your own ass crack, and pounding pints of Ben & Jerry’s Americone Dream to top it all off. But that one minute after you survive this? Pure magic and joy you can never top.
One of the commenters on a previous blog wondered why I go with Liveleak videos so often and this is exactly why. It’s like having a personal concierge for the kind of videos I like. The NFL Redzone of Internet-worthy videos, just pounding it into the end zone over and over again everyday. When you watch/read 1,000 things a day you simply can’t put a price on that kind of convenience.
For some reason this blog title is total clickbait. I don’t get it. Buy an app.

You guys have to check out the latest video from Big Chen, he’s a legend at UT and should blow up nationwide any day now. John Legend just got owned right here, wouldn’t be a huge surprise if he has Teigen with him in his next vid under his arm.
First of all why he goes with Big Chen instead of sticking with his Youtube name “KoolAsianGuy” is beyond me, but I’m not the artist here. Chalk it up to creative differences. As for the music there’s really only one word to describe the big man: versatility.
From freestyle raps that would have Ice Cube and Dr. Dre bobbin’ their heads…
To soft pop singles for the ladies…
To grunge so grungey you can practically taste the heroin…
There’s just literally nothing Big Chen can’t do musically, and that includes carry a tune.
University of New Mexico Soccer Players Say They Were Stripped Naked, Forced To Chug Liquor And Sprayed With Piss
KOB – Members of the UNM women’s soccer team are alleging they were hazed by teammates Sunday night.
A victim’s parent confirmed to KOB Monday night that freshmen on the women’s soccer team were forced to strip naked, consume large amounts of alcohol and were sprayed with urine.
One of the victims ended up in the hospital, according to UNM police, who also said someone called 911 just before midnight Sunday night to report the incident. One victim’s family has already retained an Albuquerque attorney who confirmed the information about the alleged hazing.
For UNM sports fans, the information was difficult to stomach. Lobo freshman volleyball player Keaton Alley told KOB the women’s soccer team “seems like a really close-knit team”. She said she and her teammates heard about the allegations, but they didn’t seem possible.
“I know a lot of the soccer girls, and I’m surprised that any of them would even do that to someone,” another UNM student said.
“It’s probably in small doses healthy, you know,” said Jim Thompson. “But taken too far, it’s not a good thing.”
44 U.S. states have passed some sort of anti-hazing law, with punishments specifically for hazing incidents. New Mexico is one of six states without an anti-hazing law.
Drinking alcohol naked while getting a little bit of pee pee sprayed on you? Does the New Mexico girls soccer team even read news or blogs? This is like the softest hazing story of the past 2 years. We’ve got kids admitted to the hospital, suffering extreme injuries, fucking dying all over the place. And you’re crying about some drinking and urine? I mean you didn’t even have to drink the urine. You just had a few cocktails with no clothes on and had a little sprayed on you. Big whoop. That’s a normal Friday night for some people. Seriously you’re gonna have to do a lot better than something that some people with fetishes pay good money for to get me worried about the state of hazing in colleges across America.
PS – Tough break getting stripped naked and forced to funnel Jack while getting literally pissed on in a state with no hazing laws. That’s just shitty luck. This happens to you up here in the Northeast and you’re looking at an easy six figure settlement while the entire team is disbanded and probably sent to prison.
