Game threads have more mood swings than menopause support group. The full gambit of human emotion is run within just a few hours. They’re a violent pendulum of cocaine like highs and deity-pleading lows. So when Baylor entered Saturday’s matchup against the Sooners the Big 12’s leading candidate to make the College Football Playoff, but left with their first loss of the season, you know the game thread is going to be good.
I have to hand it to Baylor nation though, outside of their conviction that Oklahoma plays dirty, they really handled the loss well. I expected unbridled rage as their playoff hopes came crashing down, but to their credit, they gave OU all the accolades. …well, for the most part.
Grab some popcorn, and sit back and relax. Here are the best comments from the folks over at Our Daily Bears.
Baylor Bears FIGHT!
Let’s go Bay-lor
Hearing about Seth brought a tear to my eye. Let’s finish what he started! SICEM bears.
So who predicted the scores of OK State/Iowa State and TCU/Kansas? Because I have some stocks I want to ask you about.
THIS. IS. BAYLORRRRR!!!!!
I’m all TURNT up on Mt. Dew!!!
Conspiracy theory: BU intentionally sucked against the run last week in order to make OU think they can run on us.
Prime Time ABC Broadcast. Yep, Baylor football has really changed!
Fort Hood helicopter flyover has this crowd hyped. Stadium full 15-minutes out and the blackout a success.

Just when we thought Baylor had enough offensive weapons they call in APACHE GUNSHIPS

OH MY GOSH THE BLACKOUT LOOKS SO GOOD FROM THE BLIMP
DAAAAAAANG that blackout looks good from above.

That bear is gonna rip that wagon apart.
Herbie already saying dumb things like, “Oklahoma isn’t really worried about their resume”
Let’s do this people!
AYYYYYYYY SIC EM BEARS
Time to eat!
SACK SACK SACK, THE FIRM OF BAKER MAYFIELD IS CLOSED.
Love the pressure
Can’t ask for a better start than that.
Hey look we can run ESPN
Yeeees! SHOCK AND AWE
“Punishing the quarterback with the weight of his body”, WHOA.
Roughing the passer. Dirty play is ALWAYS a problem with OU. ALWAYS.
Baylor riding that horse with Shock Linwood early.
We are DOMINATING at the line of scrimmage.
I thought we only threw the ball around the yard?!
RUN IT DOWN THEIR THROAT.
I came out of the bathroom and noticed we missed the extra point. GOOD GRIEF.
Sighhhhhhh, special teams.
Herbstreit just called him Durango.
Drango. Two syllables. Not an SUV. A person.
KILL, D-LINE, KILL
That’s a bad flag
Bad penalty call
Oh that’s a steaming pile of BS
Penalties, penalties, penalties, and we didn’t follow on that play.
Need to find someone who does not kick the ball out of bounds
Need to find special teams in general
CRAP CRAP CRAP CRAP
NO NO NO NO NO NO NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
That’s really close, glad the are reviewing it.
THAT FREAKING SONG, DANG IT
OU band plays “Boomer Sooner” ad nauseam…
DIRRRRTY PLAY OU. Every single time!
Way to respond D!
Great stop Defense!!!
OU just took themselves out of field goal range by playing dirty.
Defense getting good pressure out of D-line.
OU doubling Coleman so far.
The rain is OU’s best defense.
GREAT THROW! GO COLEMAN!!!
THAT CALL IS WRONG!!!!
Oh Yeah! Well done, Stidham and Lee!!!
That pass in the rain with no gloves… Sweet!!!
OU taking FOREVER to substitute.
When it’s bad enough the announcers comment on it… It’s bad.
After one quarter, this is going to be a dogfight.
I’m pretty sure none of use expected it to be over by now.
BEAT UP BAKER. Nicely, of course.
Good job D!
Defense came to play!
Come on PAC-12. We’d love Stanford to be weaker when Notre Dame plays them.
I think we have plenty on our own hands right now…
I’d like to have my cake and eat it too.
We’ve got a SEC game going.
So… if we lose, we move to #4?
Can’t stop our D-line without playing dirty, eh OU?
Penalties, Oklahoma 3-40, Baylor 4-36
Boy, Howard’s gotta stay with him.
Oakman wanted that sack.
Looks like the officials have it in for Baylor today…
Man we need to tackle.
Good lord these officials!
NO. NOT A TD.
Pylon cam time
Well… at least we have matching missed PATs.
We are going to win.
I don’t understand how that was a touchdown.
On the bright side, if we win, surely the CFP committee will give us credit for playing in bad weather.
Super vanilla play calling.
EXCELLENT coverage on 1st down.
Let’s get a stop.
THAT is exactly how and when you rattle Baker Mayfield.
THAT’S WHAT WE NEEDED
PICK PICK PICK
I don’t like that. Get down, Stid.
Mad Oklahoma coach needs to be memed.
Thank you OU!
WHY THANK YOU FOR THE FIRST DOWN YOU DIRTY, DIRTY TEAM
I don’t remember OU being this dirty in the past.
Exhaled for the first time in about an hour. Now just be careful with the PAT.
Thank you for that touchdown!
I LOVE THIS RED
“He kicked a player”
BYE YOU DIRTY IDIOT
I think Dimon just told the crowd, “love you”
Wow, Summoning his inner Suh.
Yeah, sure. Taunt us all you want, idiot.
Let’s go defense!
WE need a stop right here!
“OU Sucks” chants clearly heard on broadcast
No need to panic. We’re only down by 7.
Not panicking yet.
We get the ball next half!
OU was given two touchdown drives by the officials
HALFTIME (Oklahoma 20, Baylor 13)
Stay aggressive D
Let’s go Baylor!
I’m so mad. Sooners playing dirty and somehow the football gods are allowing that to be and let them win.
I don’t know if anyone mentioned this [earlier], but Orion Stewart was down with an injury and the OU fans were chanting right above him. It was so classless.
I was wondering what all the booing was about when Stewart was down.
Baylor students were booing, and rightly so.
OU players standing over him. About half a dozen OL standing next to the scene during the injury timeout. Rest of OU’s offense was at the sideline with coaches.
I fear that this game is just too much for a freshman QB, even one as good as Stidham.
Let’s continue to hit Mayfield
Despite a few plays, we’re doing very well defensively.
— Shehan Jeyarajah (@ShehanJeyarajah) November 15, 2015
Crud, Stidham’s hurt.
NO, Not another QB injury
Not a great start there.
DANG IT! PROTECT YOUR QB!
Thank you, Corey
Wow, what a throw!
Let Stidham throw it more!
MOVE THAT PILE
LINWOOD dances for an extra 20 yards!!
I LOVE THE TOUCHDOWN PLAY
Please, please D… Do your part and by the way, no pooch kick.
Can we just hypnotize the offense into thinking every drive is the first drive of the game or after halftime?
No pressure on Mayfield
STOP LOSING CONTAIN
WOW man come on!
Oakman tried to take that play off.
He does that. Drives me nuts. Scouts see that [poop] too.
OUR BLITZES ARE SO PREDICTABLE.
That engage eight worked all the time against the CPU for me.
LOL, It has never worked for me, EVER
We need to double Shepard every play.
THEY HAVE GOT TO STOP SHOWING THE BLITZ SO STINKING EARLY!!!
Gotta tip your hat to them on that play.
So close to blocking that pass – twice.
Stidham has nervous feet tonight
Stidham looks very timid about throwing into coverage
This is gonna be tough folks.
That was not a good series.
Looks like we’re missing Seth more than I thought we would…
OK, stop this, Baylor. You’re two-time Big 12 Champs. Play like it.
They are taking advantage of Oakman in the running game
Danger zone here in McLane
Both linebackers majorly whiffed on that play
Oakman just took himself right out of that play
Oakman has been a non-event all year
Our offensive line is getting absolutely dominated
OMG, you did not call that play, WTF?
The play calling is horrific.
This is just vomitous to watch
What is this? Up the middle again? We’re down 14!!
I have to laugh, or I’ll start to cry.
Great coverage by Reid
IT’S A STOP. OH MAN I LOVE OUR DEFENSE
Huge series there
HORSE COLLAR!!!!!! AAAARRRRRGG!!!!!!!!
WHY JAY WHY
I’m done with Lee. Drops waaaay too many passes.
OMG Get him out
There we go!
Fire That Cannon!
OPEN IT UP. HE’S THE FUTURE
Is Stidham a young guy? Tell me, Herbie.
Fat guy touchdown …please
ANY touchdown …please
LAQUAN FOR PIESMAN!!!
I LOVE YOU KENDAL BRILES
Great hand there
Another Durango, did we get a new player?
Is he a freshman?
What is our kicker doing?
Let’s go defense!!!
DEAR OU: YOU DIRTY
I hate saying teams are dirty, because it’s stupid, but OU has had a ton of those questionable plays tonight.
Every year they do this at least once or twice. This year it’s particularly bad.
Yeah, that’s true bro, they have history.
We must win! We must vanquish the evil people!!!
Keep up the pressure
YEEES!!!!!! LET’S GO BAYLOR!!!
Am I imaging things, or did we just use a 3-man front on that series?
Dear Bears, please read:
Cannon never looked
Glad that wasn’t a pick 6
BAH BLA ZAKD OIEMG9J0IM 90MLGM 092MIOKM4RG09MK M 4I0K4KG0G 0KRKMGK0 K0 KM K GMR0KKM0G QK K0 0KD MKM GK0 D0K0 KK GD K MGK MDQ00 DGKDM 0GMK
Oh, look. It’s Terrell Burt.
Ummm, that could have been called targeting, y’all…
That was 100% avoidable and could have been bad, but Mixon is alright, and I’m glad there was no penalty.
That looked like textbook targeting to me.
Wow that was a dangerous hit!
Field goal isn’t automatic in this weather, Need a stop.
Let’s call the turnover play.
We need to force a turnover. Or they need to give us one.
We have 5 DB commits for the class of 2016. Praise the LORD!
Lovely coverage there.
Weather, why you no play nice?
Okay. It’s time to take OU seriously.
Hey, special teams!
Where are you O-line?
OU is daring us to throw the ball cuz they know we don’t want to…
WHAT THE [HECK] ARE WE DOING?
That was not a stand by OU. That was a lay down by us.
Wow, that was a bad series
Why you run sideways???
Just let Stidham throw it to somebody.
If Stidham is hurt too much to run our playbook, then this is basically over.
Enough with the classic Texans play calling
Mayfield is gonna try and run. We have to keep him contained.
This game isn’t over
BLOCK THAT PUNT
I do not like Stidham’s demeanor on the sideline. He looks HURT, not just hurt.
Man defense has saved us.
Shock, please run forward. Not side to side.
TD to Coleman… please
“Jay Lee cannot come up with it.” Not surprised
Come on Jay Lee!
Jay Lee clutch when you need him
Baylor is going to overcome bad luck, bad officials, and bad weather to win this game
My poor 24-year-old heart
Okay D, Let’s stop them again here
Let’s go defense!!!
Kill. Kill. Kill.
RUN THE TURNOVER PLAY
That is my favorite defensive play
ATE. THAT. PLAY. UP.
Oakman did something!!
What? YOU ONLY CALL HORSE COLLAR ON US???
THESE OFFICIALS ARE CHEATING!!!!!
So are we, evidently…
Penalty is a killer.
Uh… that’s a little fascinating?
OK that’s bush league.
Really? Announcers get mad at us for “faking” but not OU??? Herbie is a terrible man. Maybe he was injured and trying to stick it out.
Take that Herbie. He’s on the bench now.
Maybe he was hurt, but decided to tough it out, but Reid thought it’d be better for him to get off.
Defense needs to contain again.
Whoa. Oakman got thrown to the ground
Oakman hurled to the ground from behind
Eating the clock.
Seven minutes is forever.
Unless you are behind.
We cannot let them score a TD here.
What was that?
Horrible coverage by Singleton
Have they called holding even once on OU tonight?
Nope, though they’re doing it every play.
We must defeat the officials!!!
STOP THEM HERE.
Must get a stop
Oakman gave up
He’s done it like 10 times!!!
Nope, no holding there. Nothing to see here.
If by “no”, you mean “yes”, then you are correct.
ARGH. This team lost to Texas, folks.
OMFG, that [dang] song…
Oakman got tackled, and then got mad and gave up
Ineligible lineman down field!
Oh cool, so the tackle was basically in the end zone. Isn’t that a “point of emphasis” this year?
Only when it’s not OU.
It’s incompetence, not a conspiracy.
I can’t believe Oakman has quit this much.
Whelp, that was a freshman interception. Stared down his receiver and didn’t put enough air under the ball
So, it looks like the Big 12 will get left out of the playoff again this year.
I hope the recruits like the facilities.
All I know is this game is garbage
Final (Oklahoma 44, Baylor 34)
This one is going to hurt in the morning.
Next two weeks will be tough.
Got to give OU a lot of credit. They had a solid game plan and played a near perfect game tonight.
Just ready for OSU. I want blood next week.
I do not like OU. Hope they never win another game.
Look at how excited OU is for beating us. That right there is a testament to how good we’ve become.
OU played well, but I can’t give them any credit. They played extremely dirty, had a player ejected who then made a scene as he left the field, and they injured our QB on the first drive of the game on an incredible dirty late hit. I have no respect for them.
Lol. What’s the matter? Can’t take one loss without acting like a spoiled 5 yr old and blaming everyone but your own team’s lackluster play?
Oh boy! The OSU trolls are beginning early this year! Yay! I will have a whole week of ridiculous comments to enjoy.
Eh.. Didn’t Oakman knee Patrick Mahomes in the head? And didn’t Ahmad Dixon have a history of questionable hits?
I feel like responding, but what’s the point.
Imagine BU and TCU losing next week = TCU v Baylor will not be a big deal
No thanks, I’ll plan to win next week, thank you.
Good luck with that [poop]. We should stick to Incarnate Word.
