Baylor doesn't have the political juice to stay on top. Within 2 more years, the coach will be gone to a bigger school, the NCAA will find a way to dry up the talent pipeline, and Baylor will be back to 4-7.
Yeah that is pretty much how it always works when a coach has alot of success at a smaller school. I've got family in the Stephenville area so I have been watching Briles put out sick offense after sick offense since the early 90's.
As a lifelong Texas Longhorns fan, Briles to replace Mack Brown would be the ultimate marriage for me and once you get into the political side, with George W Bush and billionaire Tom Hicks as big time supporters of Texas it just seems like the no brainer move.
