Baylor smarting from College Football Playoff snub

Baylor's played nice for the past three weeks since it happened. The Bears have talked a lot about themselves and Michigan State and not much about the biggest story in the Big 12 this season.  It's only natural that at some point, the Bears' disdain for their playoff snub would seep out from underneath trite platitudes repeated at bowl sites everywhere.  "I guess the TCU game...

After watching Michigan State march down the field and score the Baylor Bears needed to respond. The Spartans defense is pretty tough so falling behind early was not something Art Briles and company wanted to do.

Baylor has shown in recent years that it is not afraid to use a little 'trickeration' from time to time in order to make the big play.

Good thing for fans of the Bears is their team is pretty good at being tricky when they want to be.They proved just that in the first quarter of the Cotton...
