62-0: What Castration Feels Like

To wet your appetite for the upcoming BearMeat interview of Peter Bean of Burnt Orange Nation, we stole a Youtube posted on BON today, showing highlights from the National Champion ShortHorns decimation of the B on a hot afternoon, November 2005 at The Floyd in Waco, TX. The Good Judge and I attended this game and sat in what we thought was the Baylor section, only to find ourselves two green dots surrounded by a sea of burnt orange.

Needless to say, it got ugly pretty quick. The humiliation of the final score paled in comparison to 20,000+ UT fans (who outnumbered fans of the B at least 3 to 2 at kickoff) singing the Eyes of Texas after the final horn, with only a scattering of Baylor fans in the stadium. "This is how it feels to be dominated by an empire," the Judge opined. "Yes," I responded, "The only way to exact our revenge will be to start a blog, for Lord knows we'll never be able to compete with this school for as long as we live". The Good Judge agreed, but only on condition that 50% of the budget be set aside for leisurely pursuits. I heartily concurred. Without further ado, here are highlights from the game we witnessed:

  • Hey! This game is from '05. This is one of the last games I saw in the old Floyd Casey. I think you're not being very Bearmeat in remembering that we were up 10-0 in the first post-Vince era game against the shorthorns.

    Or maybe it's the other way around, I can never remember.

  • Yeah, I guess I could have told the tale of the excitement of the '06 1st Quarter, but giving up 60 points in the 3 subsequent quarters has kept my nostalgia in check.

    Thanks for keeping us honest, BDP!

  • It's comin', boys. I'm a little backed up - but it's comin'...

  • I have observed the last two "contests" in person and look forward to this season's home loss. We are due to cover the spread one of these days.

  • Dammit, PB, where is our interview? Its like you have a life outside of a Baylor blog with a rather robust readership (17 sentient beings).

    We'll remember this come the UT-BU game.
