In case you didn’t get the memo Thursday night, Baylor football is relevant. Extremely relevant.
It was a message many of the recruits tried to spread before the season started -- though some didn’t listen. After an 8-0 start, highlighted by Thursday’s 41-12 shellacking of Oklahoma, Art Briles’ squad is not only looked at as the Big 12 favorite but also a legitimate BCS national title contender.
Baylor’s 2014 recruiting class is at 23 strong, and the program’s top commit, wide receiver K.D. Cannon (Mount Pleasant, Texas/Mount Pleasant) was at Floyd Casey Stadium watching his future team.
“They played great,” Cannon said. “It was crazy from the start until the end.”
