“You want to go to the pros, play well against Georgia.”

Because I know you care deeply, here’s the first bit of Baylor news I have to share.

Baylor starting quarterback Charlie Brewer remains in concussion protocol more than a week after being injured in the Big 12 Championship Game.

Coach Matt Rhule gave his first update on Brewer to reporters Sunday ahead of the Jan. 1 Sugar Bowl meeting with Georgia.

“Just step by step,” Rhule said, declining to say whether Brewer would play in the bowl. “I have no idea. It’s really all up to the doctors. They kind of monitor every step.”

Brewer left the Big 12 title game in the first half after official Mike Defee noticed something off after he had taken a couple of hard hits, including one where his head struck the turf.

Brewer ranks third in the Big 12 in passing efficiency, completing 65.2% of his passes for 20 touchdowns and six interceptions. He also ran for 337 yards and 10 TDs this season.

I’d say that’s kind of a big deal.

    God, we can’t lose to Baylor, y’all.

      It’s debatable if we’d rather face Brewer or Baylor’s back-up QB.
      I hope he heals and has no further problems.
      And you’re right, stoop…losing to Baylor would be a huge step backwards.. But you know..if it’s a shoot-out..ugh.

    Rhule should be getting more shit for how be handled Brewer. When the ref has to tell you to take a kid out, something is wrong. Brewer is a key piece. If he’s out it will hurt them though not as much as against OU. They have a month to plan with the backups.

    Maybe if we go get smoked in New Orleans again the team will finally realize that 2017 is waaay in the rear view mirror and they ain’t shit till proven otherwise, and practice and play accordingly until they do accomplish something big again. Seems like big heads have been a problem.

      If this group doesn’t realize they are but a distant relative to the 2017 team, which doesn’t exist any more, they aren’t smart enough to be in college. Every game is a chance for leaders and champions to step up and show what they have to offer, both to UGA and the NFL. Pride has to be in them at this point, or they are wasting their time at athletics.

    Baylor backup Jacob Zeno averaged 79.5 yards per completion against Oklahoma.

  5. I hope he’ll be ok but I think the game comes down to whether or not we give a damn. Bowl games really feel like trap games for this program now. Baylor is trying to remake itself while we’re missing the playoffs again. There is also the distraction of who may or may not be sitting this one out.

    You always expect to give maximum effort for every game but these games just don’t have as much meaning anymore, especially for programs that have playoff expectations. From a fan perspective, my excitement level is minimal relative to the 2003 or 2005 SBs. I’m excited to see Georgia play one more time but I just don’t expect much.


  6. I know Smart will use this game to coach guys up for next season but I don’t know if I expect much more than that. Who will be suspended? Who will sit out? Who won’t give a damn because they’re going pro? Will Fromm come back? Hell, half the game could be Stetson Bennett handing off to Zeus up the gut with patchwork offensive personnel. Did I mention that I don’t expect much? Hehe

    He’ll play

    You folks need to watch the you tube of Zeno, the third string qback. He smoked Oklahoma with two 80 yard pass plays. And Baylor has got some WR’s who can fly.
