The blogging of the Big12 is nearly complete. I can't say for sure, but it seems that the Big12 is perhaps close to being the best-blogged conference in NCAA Division I. (Competitors: SEC? Pac-10? Big10/11/12?) Thanks to the recent success of Bring on the Cats
(formerly K-State Sports & Beyond) covering Kansas State, we began to close the gap. In the past week, we've noticed that Mizzou fans have started two great blogs as well, Mizzousanity
and Every True Son: The Blog for God's Least Favorite Athletic Program
(uh, we beg to differ on that subtitle's claim). Basically, this leaves two programs sans blog: one party school with a sordid history of NCAA violations
(Colorado) and one Ag & Oil school located in the Athens of Oklahoma - The Alma Mater of Gary Busey
and a wholly-owned property of Mr. Boone Pickens - Oklahoma A&M.
Pistol Pete: No Blog To Defend This Illiterate Mascot
While Baylor is not exactly the easiest athletic program to blog about (Rest in Peace, Baylor Sports Unlimited
; donde estas, Judge Chamber?), even if you are getting paid to do it (see Jerry Hill's recent post
on Baylor's high-intensity "carpe diem" practices), at least we have BearMeat, which boldly embraces the absurdity and plunges onward through the fog of despair and ridicule. And Baylor is the smallest school in the Big12 by at least 7,000 students. Do we really believe that there isn't one student among the 23,000 at OSU or the 28,000 at CU who could start a lively blog? Come forth, brave Buffaloes and noble CowPokes! Enter the fray!
: What's that on the horizon? Another Baylor sports blog? "Offering and encouraging personal, positive discussions about Baylor athletics from yesterday and today?" Yes, its the latest Baylor sports blog, Baylor Bear Fan
. Is this a response to the perceived negativity of BearMeat? Why is commenting disabled? Why is there no way to contact the author, or any author info for that matter? A Baylor blog written at DEFCON 1 - now that's an anonymous blog!
