Childress didn’t practice Tuesday and offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Shannon Dawson said Childress still can’t throw. Trickett did practice and Dawson said Trickett and junior Paul Millard split the snaps pretty evenly.
“With these guys, they need to practice Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday because we’re dealing with three guys who are so inexperienced,” Holgorsen said. “If they can’t practice (Tuesday) and Wednesday, I doubt I’m going to put them out there on Thursday to play Saturday because these guys need the reps. If they don’t have the reps through the course of the week, I’m not going to feel good about it.”
I know Baylor is going to be wearing these bad boys …
That’s really cool. Now, what I think doesn’t much matter, but understand that the Bears really believe in these things. They really believe in everything they do.
Some wear emotions on their sleeve. The Bears wear them on their heads.
“To me, that’s what it’s all about,” Coach Art Briles said. “You’ve got style, you’ve got attitude, you’ve got effort. You have an image, and our image is we’re going to play fast, we’re going to be fearless and we’re not going to worry about what other people think because we know who we are and we know what we’re going to do.”
If the headwear isn’t convincing enough, consider Baylor’s Holiday Bowl rings. They, too, are gold and feature the score on the side: 49-19. The box score reads the Bears beat UCLA 49-26.
Baylor was, and apparently still is, upset about a touchdown given to the Bruins on the final play of the game when the UCLA player clearly never got the ball into the end zone. Even though there was no time left in the game, Briles tried to call a timeout to have the play reviewed and overturned.
The ring was his final say.
“Of course I’m still mad about that,” Briles said. “I don’t want to short our players and I didn’t want to short them that night. That’s why I called the timeout and asked them to review it, which they didn’t do. It was hot dog and Coke time for the review staff. They thought the game was over.”
