Head coach Art Briles and the Baylor Bears, so far this season, just look like they’re playing a video game out there. It’s as if they arrive to the stadium, turn the Xbox on, set it to rookie level and away they go. In their first four games, they’ve scored 69, 70, 70 and 73 points respectively. They’ve quickly become a favorite among many to possibly run away with the Big 12 this season, and possibly make a run at bringing a national title to Waco.
Because of that, Briles’ name has come up a lot in regards to filling a few vacant head coaching spots this offseason, most notably one that is expected to be open following this season over in Austin.
But, for right now, Briles says he’s content with continuing to develop this Baylor program into a legitimate national powerhouse. In an interview recently with a Dallas CBS affiliate, Briles made light of this:
“I’m extremely happy here at Baylor…We’ve got a good thing going and I can’t see myself anywhere else.”
As is the case with a lot of other dominant teams so far, people are still questioning the toughness of the Bears’ schedule to this point in which they’ve put up those monstrous numbers. But they’re entering the heart of the Big 12 slate, and should they continue this type of play, the demands for Briles to relocate may only get louder.
