Baylor coach Art Briles won't let Robert Griffin answer a question about what was said in a postgame conversation between the quarterback and Texas A&M coach Mike Sherman. Was Briles right to step in, or was he being a jackass and why did it matter where the reporter was from? Vote below:
Baylor has a wealth of talent on offense as it tries to build on a successfull 2010 season, which saw the Bears play in their first bowl game after a 16-year absence. The team also produced a second poster featuring the defense, which is featured below the poll.

The Bears have not been to a bowl game since 1994, but the skid could be coming to an end because quarterback Robert Griffin is back and in good health. The electrifying Griffin, who missed nearly all of 2009 because of an injury to his left knee, has bulked up to 220 pounds. With Griffin back under center, Baylor steamrolled something called Sam Houston State, 34-3, in last Saturday's opener. The Bears should get another victory this Saturday against visiting Buffalo, then comes a trip to Texas Christian. A win against the Horned Frogs could springboard Baylor to a big season.
As a run-up to the start of the season, the Wiz will display one
poster each day until our supply is exhausted.
Then we turn it over to readers, who will vote on the poster of the
year. In the meantime, send your team's poster schedule to jayzuma (at)
Last year, the site
displayed 69 posters. This is poster No. 72 for 2010. Thanks to John! Poster designed by Old Hat Creative.
There's trouble brewing in the Big 12, which has evolved into a league of haves and have-nots.
North Division members Iowa State, Kansas State and Colorado are being left in the financial dust by free-spending Texas, Nebraska and Oklahoma.
Lee Barfknecht of the Omaha World-Herald breaks it down this way: Texas makes about $7 million for a home game with its stadium capacity of 101,000. Nebraska makes about $4.5 million with its 85,000 seats.
Iowa State, Kansas State and Colorado, each with stadiums seating slightly more than 50,000, bring in about $1.2 million to $1.5 million per home game.
Barfknecht writes: "Multiply that differential by seven games a year, stretch that over four or five years and you can see why Texas has flat-screen TVs in its football complex bathrooms while other schools are happy to find soap and paper towels."
