Prospect primer: Shawn Oakman | DL | Baylor

Baylor defensive lineman Shawn Oakman started gaining notoriety with his play in 2014 but it was how he looked in the Cotton Bowl versus Michigan State that saw him become a near household name. No, it wasn’t how he looked playing the actual game. It was how chiseled, yolked up, and intimidating he looked in a picture that led him to become a popular internet meme for weeks following...

Baylor could wear new uni combo every game for 10 years

The Baylor Bears are making a name for themselves as one of the top programs in college football when it comes to uniform innovation. Outside of the Oregon Ducks, Baylor has some of the flashiest and most diverse uni combos. In fact, they have so many different options to wear on gameday that CBS Sports figured out the team could wear a different uniform in every game for the next...

Video: Baylor commit jumps over three people for dunk

How many people could you jump over? How many people could you jump over while throwing down a slam dunk? Most likely, the number is significantly less than Baylor Bears commit. Mark Vital. At the NBPA Top 100 on Friday, the 6-foot-5 winger was able to jump over three of his fellow campers for a dunk. Prior to the impressive feat, Vital was already considered one of the best dunkers...

Massive Baylor Tight End Threw Out The First Pitch At The Rangers Game

First off, let me start by saying this: 1st pitches have become way too liberal these days. It’s ridiculous. Every night some “celebrity” is out on the bump and it’s bringing down the value of the ceremonial first pitch. At this point, Joe Kinsey himself would get asked to throw one out in Cleveland if it wasn’t for the fact that all of the fans would probably murder him...

400-pound Baylor TE throws first pitch at Rangers’ game

We have all seen some pretty awful first pitches in recent years. Remember 50 Cent’s infamous flop on the mound that was described as “just a bit outside”? Or how about Carli Rae Jepsen’s pitch that made me 1. ashamed to be a Rays fan and 2. didn’t make me want to “call her maybe.” Well, this pitch is not a terrible one, but it is memorable because it may be the largest...

Baylor Big Man LaQuan McGowan With the First Pitch at a Texas Rangers Game

For much of the country he is not looked upon as much of a celebrity, but in Texas Baylor's gigantic tight end, 410-lb LaQuan McGowan, has a bit of a following. After making a nice catch and run against Michigan State during the Cotton Bowl last year the team went ahead and shifted him from tackle to tight end (where he spent most of spring practice).When he becomes a red zone scoring...

Baylor Football: 400-Pound TE LaQuan McGowan Threw Out The 1st Pitch At Last Night’s Rangers Game

Baylor’s 400-pound tight end LaQuan McGowan created quite a stir when he caught a touchdown in the team’s bowl game against Michigan State last season. He worked at tight end and H-back this spring, and judging by his first pitch effort at last night’s Texas Rangers’ game, he may want to see if Art Briles will let him throw a pass this fall. Mound presence? Baylor’s 400...

Dallas Cowboys Sign Former Baylor Bears Standout Lache Seastrunk

So far all they have done is sign former Oakland Raider Darren McFadden, but the often injured McFadden is already nursing an injury suffered in OTAs (strained hamstring).With Ryan Williams also having injury issues the team needed some help just to get through...

Baylor expects Sam Ukwuachu to play in 2015

The Baylor Bears have been waiting for Sam Ukwuachu to take the field for the past couple of years and it looks like that time will finally come in 2015. After transferring from Boise State before the 2013 season, Ukwuachu was forced to sit out the year to satisfy NCAA transfer rules. The defensive end was then ruled ineligible for all of 2014 for an issue that was never made public...

PHOTO: Baylor will wear sweet new gray uniforms in 2015

In the last five years, Baylor football has rebranded itself as a sleek, fast and modern program on the rise. The Bears are getting the attention of recruits in the state of Texas and have become power players in the Big 12. That rebranding began with on-field success -- thanks, Robert Griffin III -- and was solidified with the opening of beautiful McLane Stadium last fall on the...

The Baylor Bears, who finished just one spot out of the inaugural College Football Playoff last year, have become the “it” program in the Big 12, despite a lack of historical success.
