Trib sports guys Brice Cherry, John Werner and Brian Crownover return to talk all things Baylor and Big 12:
• So, Baylor has endured all manner of distractions this season, everything from rogue band performances to additional details of sexual assault allegations. On Saturday, it all seemed to come to a head, as the Bears didn't really even show up against TCU, losing by 40 at home to what we had deemed a pretty average Horned Frog team. What do you make of that game, and has the season spiraled out of control for the Bears?
• We asked Jim Grobe about recruiting this week, and also whether the assistant coaches are still fully invested. Here's what he had to say. (Play clip). How much of a setback do you think Baylor's recruiting will face, and how long will it take to get back to the height of Art Briles' levels?
• Let's talk about Oklahoma. The Sooners almost look like a different team than the one that lost to Houston and Ohio State so meekly earlier in the year. Where does this Sooner offense rank alongside those of recent vintage?
• So, Texas running back D'Onta Foreman is leading the country in rushing, OU's Dede Westbrook is No. 1 in receiving, Texas Tech's Patrick Mahomes is the most prolific passer in the country. Baker Mayfield isn't too bad, either. And yet AP did a story today that the Big 12 likely won't have a representative at the Heisman ceremony. Is that fair or are the Big 12's best players being overlooked?
• Finally, we had election day this week, and we've got a new president in Donald Trump. Let me ask you this: Forget president. Let's say Bob Bowlsby resigned to become AD at Texas or something. Who would make the best Big 12 commissioner: Trump or Hillary?
