You have to love the job head coach Art Briles is doing at Baylor. He has really helped put the school on the map by leading the Bears to three straight bowl games. The progress he has made even caught the attention of wide receiver Robbie Rhodes, who signed on national signing day.
Big move for Baylor, but this isn't exactly what the school is known for. This is a program that usually takes the guys that nobody else wanted and helps turn them into players who are worth watching. Now it is neat that a legitimate 5-star player is willing to give the Bears a chance, but this is somebody who should be playing on national television and thinking about an NFL career.
Sure, Baylor did produce Robert Griffin and wide receiver Kendall Wright, but it is still a school that is not going to receive national attention from anybody. Rhodes will thrive in the Bears offensive system, but a school with a bigger name would have done a lot more good.
Not suprised no one has responded to this ridiculous statement.
Your opinion or an excerpt from an article of some guy's opinion?
Besides every Big 12 game is on TV and with the LHN taking 3 broadcasts a year the Baylor games are probably seen by more aggregate viewers than UT's right now.
Also going to a school who's coaching staff has put Kendall Wright, Josh Gordon, David Gettis, Donnie Avery, Biren Ealy, and soon Terrance Williams into the pros cannot be seen as a negative for his pro prospects.

Who's statement is this? The OP's, or is it from somewhere I should care about?
What are you smoking? Not going to feed this guy !
I think it's hilarious how much of a joke your class is. I would not trade anyone in our last two classes for one of your whiny bitches.
Lateral, Since everything you have posted is related to the Texas board, you think Rhodes made a mistake not signing with Texas. Art has forgotten more about offense than the entire Texas staff. Take off the orange tinted glasses and look at the results he has produced with NFL offensive draft choices. And do not tell me I have not kept up with Texas, my wife taught 4 recent Texas player and we have followed them closely. They did not develop like they should.You last sentence tells it all. You assume the name on the jersey makes a difference in how a player plays. It does not.
I think he misspelled his username. It is really lobotomy
Some one seems angry Rhodes, Billings, Fulks and Jefferson didn't come to the almighty UT. Who else did UT try to steal that didn't come?
Probably most are aware of this, but this guy is a frequent poster on ut 247 board. Troll.
Do you know what a blivot is?
Its 10 lbs of crap in a 5 lb bag.
You're a blivot.
I thought briefly about marshalling all of the logical arguments available in response to the absurdity and then just said to myself that you can't teach the asylum.
More than you listed BigBearBG...But this guy posting would just say "Well we did not offer him" ....Poor angry horn...
Gotta hand it to the Horns - they did sign quite an impressive D line class this year.
Oh, wait, nevermind...
Why would a stellar WR like Rhodes play for a school like Texas that runs a pedestrian offense and doesn't have a QB that can get the ball to him?
this guy did exactly what he wanted to do. he didn't need anything to base his "opinions" on, because he had no desire to come back onto the board and defend them He posted his nonsense, and i'm sure he's just checking to see how many of us got their panties all in a bunch.
he's no different than that dumba** agsy, who came on here the other day to get us all wound up, and then went back to his board to show the rest of them how cool he was.
The statement came from Bleacher Report.
figures you would want to "share" something from a bastion of journalistic integrity like Bleacher Report.
Using anything from bleacher report loses you what little credibility you had as a sports fan. Seriously, that site and the "reporting" on it are garbage.
That is seriously the dumbest thing I have ever read in my life.
So you're a plagiarist in addition to a troll. Good to know.
Not at all. I was questioned where it came from and I linked it.
So let's see here, Baylor beat out Texas for three kids Texas wanting desperately this year... Rhodes, Jefferson, and Billings
Then on the field Baylor has beaten Texas 2 of the last 3 years
Then there is the fact that Baylor had a Heisman Trophy winning QB in 2011
Not to mention 5 1st round draft picks since 2009(most in the Big 12 in that time)
In case you or the author of this crap piece on a crap site forgot, Baylor is in the same Big 12 as Texas and will play on TV just as much as Texas will...
Art Briles and Baylor football are on an upward trajectory, while ol butter teeth and Texas are on a downward trajectory
So after adding up all those pieces, it sounds like he made 100% the right choice, now go home

Journalism with an agenda at it's finest!!!
But you initially posted it without attribution or anything indicating it wasn't your original work.
i thought the exact same thing, Chesh. i felt compelled to go and read it, so i could see for myself how ridiculous it was, but it completely exceeded my expectations in its absurdity.
basically, the only thing that should matter to a recruit is the name of the school...unless you're just not good enough on paper to play there.
specifically, on his comments on Rhodes, i love how he said that he should have NFL aspirations that won't be met at Baylor, yet fails to acknowledge that this year will be the 2nd straight year we've had a 1st Rd WR, and Sampson will probably be drafted in the later rounds. Throw in Gettis from 2010, and Gordon from 2012, and Baylor will have put 5 WRs in the draft (assuming Sampson gets drafted), over the past 4 years.
