Just days away from the season opener, the Trib sports guys are back to break down the Baylor Bears with their first podcast of the year:

• After the longest, most tumultuous offseason in Baylor history, game week is finally here. How much does this team just need to get back on the field?

• We welcome our new writer, Tony Adame, and ask him this: What's the view of this BU program from outside Waco?

• Given that this game vs. an FCS opponent will be a blowout, what are you most interested in seeing from the Bears?

• Oklahoma travels to Houston to face a Cougars program on the rise. With Big 12 expansion overtones, how do you see this one shaping up?

• Notre Dame comes to Austin, where Charlie Strong's chair couldn't be any hotter. After an Irish blowout last year, what are the odd the Longhorns pull off a stunner?

• What's the best game you've ever covered?
