It's finally Seth Russell's time to shine.Russell, the latest cog to enter Art Briles' plug-and-play, high-powered Baylor offense, seems destined for stardom.

Brian Mitchell on RGIII: ‘he thinks everything is a damn joke’

Remember that time Robert Griffin III, who averaged 188.2 passing yards per game in 2015 and has a career of experiencing a blitzkrieg 101 times over three years, claimed he’s the best field general in the league? Oh, the amount of coffee wasted on spit takes after reading that. Maybe RGIII is still living in a lucid dream about his legendary collegiate years at Baylor – 10,000...

Baylor brought Big 12 and Heisman trophies, unis to camp

Well, you could tell them about your many championships and individual awards you have stacked up OR you could bring those trophies to the camp and let them see them up close. The Baylor Bears decided to do the latter and I’m pretty athletes went nuts over it. College Spun shared the picture of the Bears’ set...

Washington Redskins 2015 NFL Season Preview

Quarterback In 2012, the rookie year of Andrew Luck, Robert Griffin, and Russell Wilson, it was a legitimate debate which of the three was the best and a debate that Griffin often won. He won with the Offensive Rookie of the Year award voters, who gave him that award in 2012 ahead of Luck and Wilson. It all seemed well deserved, as he was Pro Football Focus’ 9th ranked quarterback...
