We want to run the show. That’s the plan,” Briles told Fox Sports Southwest this week.
Fresh after winning the Big 12, the Bears will open McLane Stadium next season after a $250 million dollar construction effort will dramatically increase that Baylor can hang with the conference’s elite in arms race that is college football facilities.
With reigning BIg 12 Offensive Player of the Year, quarterback Bryce Petty returning with a deep cast of wide receivers at his disposal, including freshman KD Cannon, there is no reason to believe Baylor won’t challenge for another Big 12 title in 2014.
As long as Briles is in Waco, and he’ll be there for a long time after signing an extension last year, the Bears could put the pressure on Texas, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State if they ‘run the show’ as Briles intends.
