RG3 finds a new receiver

From Grantland "Eleven months later, Derrick [Rose], and you're not even dunking off your left foot. RG3 is throwing passes to elephants, which, according to the Ringling Bros. dude who throws passes to elephants, is really hard."

Because any time 7 middle schools kids in an afterschool program in Minnesota can challenge for my favorite song of 2012, you know it's making a Friday Afternoon Video.

Malcolm Gladwell and Chuck Klosterman on Manti Te'O

This is probably one of the best commentaries that I've read about the sports-entertainment interface in quite a long time. Two of the best social commentators take on the awkward Te'O situation through e-mail less than 24 hours after word first leaked. "But if it turns out he was complicit in all of this, why should I change my mind? Can you answer that for me, Chuck? There is this underlying assumption in all of these sensational stories that we have an obligation to judge people in accordance with the facts — and when the facts change that our judgments ought to change as well. I happen to hate that idea. Since when does a human being have to behave like a court of law?"

You've got a point, though. That's a pretty soft 9-4 record. It's more impressive who they [Vanderbilt] lost to (four teams that finished 17th or higher, including Northwestern out of conference) than who they beat (Ole Miss and N.C. State). But as a former voter, I can tell you it's pretty slim pickings when you get to around 20th. My only complaint is the exclusion of Baylor, which, like No. 24 Michigan, went 8-5, but finished with wins over Kansas State (11-2), Texas Tech (8-5), Oklahoma State (8-5) and UCLA (9-5). You could certainly swap the Bears for Vandy, but Baylor has already enjoyed a couple years of glory. Let the 'Dores have a turn.

Charting Baylor at West Virginia

How does one describe such an insane football game? With graphs and charts, of course!

Sports Illustrated Top 25: Baylor #19

Geno Smith may be one of the nation's best quarterbacks, but TCU's Casey Pachall is also a future pro who can make all the throws.

Grantland on a new WVU Offensive Wrinkle

Care to stomach an in depth breakdown of one way in which the Holgorsen-Geno crew confused our defense? Hopefully this will help us get better at things like "try to cover the WR who goes off for 300 yards"

Briles finally loses at Hyper-Efficiency Chicken

On the inevitable fall of Baylor's 9 game win streak and the epic game of Hyper-Efficiency Chicken between Art Briles and Dana Holgorsen.

Game Tape Lessons from ULM

As Baylor prepares to play it's first conference game this year against WVU, what can we learn from the formations it used (and those used against it) the previous week by UL-Monroe?

Phil Steele is on The List

That's right, Phil, that's what happens when you rate Baylor as the No. 2 most overrated team and say things like this: Reason: The early results have been misleading. The Bears own the nation's second-longest win streak at nine games (TCU is No. 1, with 11 straight wins), and after starting this season 3-0 the Bears entered the AP Top 25 poll this week at No. 25, but I think their stay in the poll will be short-lived... While Art Briles is a tremendous coach, the Bears will have their work cut out for them starting this week with a road trip to Morgantown to take on No. 9 West Virginia. Saying the No. 25 team in the country is overrated and will drop out of the rankings may not seem like much of a bold prediction, but I will go as far as to say that the Bears will struggle to make it to six or seven wins and a bowl this year.

Sports Illustrated ranks Baylor #16

They fell a bit because of trailing SHSU at halftime, but they're still ahead of programs like Ohio State, Michigan and TCU.

Grantland on how RG3 succeeded

"In his introduction to the professional ranks, RG3 brought along a trusty old friend: the Baylor offense. As our colleague Chris Brown noted on Twitter, the Redskins imported some of the concepts and simple reads from the Baylor playbook to give Griffin a low-risk opening sequence to work with. Offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan crafted a game plan that built upon each look he'd presented to the defense on previous plays, creating space for Griffin while remaining one step ahead of the competition." There is much, much more to the breakdown. I'd encourage you to take a look.
