Bear Libations: Vision 2012

The Dr. Robert B. Sloan, Jr.
aka...Vision 2012

Ingredients: One part Jagermeister, one part Carlo Rossi, one part Dr. Pepper, served at room temperature.

Best consumed with: bread.

Symbolism: The dark, brooding color of this drink represents Dr. Sloan's opaque vision (see Point 3 of our Declarations of Principles) of Baylor's future. The Dr. Pepper represents failure and greed. Little did we know that an early 1997 meeting between Dr. Sloan and Todd Stitzer, CEO of Dr. Pepper, would send shock waves throughout our bubble which still reverberate to this day. The alcohol symbolizes a simple willingness to forget.

1997 Events
FACT: Coke Hour became Dr. Pepper Hour changing 44 years of tradition.
FACT: Inception of the Big 12.
FACT: Dave Roberts hired. Since then: 9 football seasons, 25 wins, 85 losses, 2 more coaches.
FACT: Last win over UT, the last homecoming win since this past season's 19 Point Miracle on the Brazos.
FACT: Hideous green bear logo with edgy font introduced. R.I.P. 2004. Thank you Lord.
FACT: Dr. Pepper introduced into Australian market. Aaron "Emu" Bruce's first taste of Waco Pride and future NBDL/Euro/NBA glory.

This drink does not give one 20/12 vision. I don't think that is possible, but our lawyers inform us to mention this.

BearMeat Intern, Lupita "Peta" McGlonchar, bypassing the Carlo Rossi and Dr. P. She's so beautiful.

BearMeat faithful, please tell us if you have any warm (angry), fuzzy (blacked out), and kind (disturbing) thoughts about Baylor, vintage 1997.

  • I was at that game when I was 13, I'm pretty sure Ricky Williams was their big back that year. Since that was only my second college football game to see in person, I was quite stunned to see how many people were at Floyd Casey and how boisterous the crowd was. Little did I know that by the time I enrolled that crowd would be cut to about 1/10 that size every home game.

    But that drinks sounds awesome.

    And it's good to see you've recovered from your trip to Stilwater Pat

  • Red: Pat is risen!

    All: He is risen indeed!

    Having survived his ill-fated recruiting trip and Lost Weekend in Stillwater, the Governor is now seated in his desk at the ALICO, surrounded by beakers, bunson burners and top-shelf liquor, busy at work concocting a new laxative-ridden Bear Libation: The Grunt Tuff.

    Welcome back, Guv!

  • Thanks you, thank you. You all are too kind.

    The crowd that day was massive. Field goal posts were carried all the way back to the SUB. We brought UT its eventual national championship by getting Mackovic fired...or as Red would say, "Bring me the head of Mackovic." Ricky Williams gained a ton of yards. Dave Roberts looked to be our saviour.

    Ahhh, I can't wait till the upcoming season tickets arrive in the mail, so we can forge new memories such as that great day.

    Ahhh, one more road for the hit, barkeep!

    The Guv
