The Baylor Bears pulled off one of the biggest upsets of the college football season on Saturday when they knocked off No. 1 ranked Kansas State in Waco, Texas.
Baylor is not known for their defense — which is one of the worst units in college football — but the team played at a top level during the upset victory. Following the win, Baylor did not take the high road. Instead, they decided to take a shot at one of the top team’s and conferences in the nation.
“Alabama… we would have beat them tonight,” said Baylor defensive coordinator Phil Bennett. “That’s why Texas A&M is doing well in that league. [Those SEC teams] don’t face anything like us.”
Oh boy, it’s getting deep.
Let’s not downplay the performance by Baylor and what they were able to accomplish, but to suggest they could have handled a top-ranked team like Alabama is just ludicrous. Not only would the Baylor offense struggle to score against the stout defense of Alabama, but the Crimson Tide’s offense would roll over the cupcake defense of Baylor.
It was a good victory by the football team and is a signature win this season, but the team is tooting their own horn a little too much.
