RaiderMeat: In Search of Our Dignity

Baylor Pride. A much-used phrase with ambiguous meaning. To some it means pride regardless of outcome. To others it evokes memories of Cotton Bowls, Grant Teaff, Singletary, Mulkey, and Michael Johnson. To others, like the BearMeat Editorial Board, the phrase creates a profound feeling of philosophical ambivalence that threatens to undermine our legendary confidence, while conversely recalling nostalgic memories of the Vara Daniel Fountain, Minglewood Bowl, and 50 cent pitchers of Keystone Light at Scruffy's.

When we watch games like this, our Pride begins to diminish.

But then we recall the glory of years past. We remind ourselves that we have been to bowl games. We remind ourselves of the Mulkey & Co '05 Championship. We try to focus on taking one step at a time. There is a reason to get out of bed in the morning. There is reason to hope.

. . . all the while TX Technical is scoring at will on our hapless D, as we continue our assault on the pizza and pasta bar like the Vikings of old.

  • Wait a minute. NO defense can hang tough for the entire game when (1) there's little depth, and (2) they have no breather given by the offense.

    At least the B is competitive these days - rather than the Kevin Steele doormat days.
