Baylor Hires New Exorcist


A few people have asked me what I think about the hiring of new Baylor head coach Art Briles. My answer: I dunno.

He took a 0-10 Houston team to four bowl games over the last five years, but I don't think Houston had to routinely play Tech, OU, the Ag, and the Evil Empire. One of two things will happen: (1) he'll be a bust like the last three coaches, or (2) he brings Baylor up to six wins and bowl eligible thereby making him the hottest commodity in the country as a miracle worker. He doesn't have to make Baylor great. He just has to make them average.

After years of Horrible, I'll take Average.

Edit: Tap the brakes there, hoss.
