More Football Previews Written by More Motivated People

I realize that the B got its foxsports.com's 119 schools in 119 days review back on June 9th, but I was still finishing the International 30 day Axis & Allies tournament at the Hague. Quick Summary: Germany and Japan start strong and then fade. Some quick observations about the football review. It generally moves from weaker teams to the Top 25. I hope this means that our away game in Buffalo, who was reviewed Day 1, is a certain victory. It looks like we were the 3rd BCS school to get a write-up (Duke and Stanford barely beat us out). I guess that means that great things are not expected from the B. Surprise.

No one says no to Weed, no one.

The most concerning/curious part of the relatively extensive review is the section on the "Star of the Offense", which lists "senior QB Michael Machen, junior QB John David Weed, and/or sophomore Blake Szymanski". I spend a lot of the offseason trying to forget the horrific images of the season before, but I'm fairly certain that two of those guys didn't play for Baylor last season and Blake, well Blake had growing pains. The BearMeat Editorial Board would love see J.D. Weed selected as the starter because it would make our "job" a whole lot easier. Surely he meant they will become a star or need to become a star, but alas the next category was "player that has to step up and become a star" and none of the QBs were listed. Huh? I want to chalk this up on the inability of the media to get or care about useful, accurate Baylor football news. Or perhaps he meant that no matter who takes over the offense the player will be a star and put up fantastic numbers. Actually I bet that is what he meant because under the "top-three all star candidates", he listed Thomas White, Jason Smith and "the starting quarterback". All we have to do is plug in a starting QB and we'll have a another star. Must tighten the cilice.

  • When the hell is the Bearmeat Tailgate? Do I get my medal of freedom then?

  • I can just imagine our t-shirts:

    "Baylor's Got the Best Weed in the Big12: John David Weed."

    BDP, you will get your formal invite to the BearMeat tailgate by midget courrier service.

  • Just thinking about JD Weed's awesomeness has led me to this conclusion. In the coming weeks I believe I will unveil a 3-Part biographical folklore sketch on our hero, titled, "The Best Weed in Texas: The Legend of John David Weed."

    He's basically Chuck Norris in his prime, perhaps on roids. (Look at that neck!)

  • That neck doesn't seem natural, but he is from Tyler.
