Baylor: 2009 Projections

New, 3 comments

One week, and about 163 hot tub references later, Baylor Week has come and gone. But let's bask in the green glow of Robert Griffin's Celebrity Hot Tub Party one last time...


Before we get to the BTBS projections, here's Baylor Week in review:

So if Baylor is one touchdown better than the projections, they beat OSU, Nebraska, and Texas Tech and go 7-5. A touchdown worse, and they go 2-10. The projections are probably not very kind to Baylor because of their lost defensive line starters (they kinda stunk anyway) and the lack of a "They got a Penn State transfer who's a 340-pound monster at DT" projection alteration. It wouldn't surprise me if BU was 3-4 points better than the projections, which would at least put the NU and Tech games within victory range. They would need to win both of those games to go bowling, but I think that's still probably a year away. I'll cross my fingers, though.

Starting Monday: Kansas State Week! I feel an unholy alliance coming on...
