capture a Baylor tackle in progress. Skeptics argue that the
Baylor tackle is nothing more than a myth
But one game surpassed them all. Baylor and West Virginia scored 133 total points. Last week the model projected this game to over 900 total passing yards. West Virginia almost did that by themselves. Together they managed over 1,200 passing yards and over 1,500 total yards. Two receivers had more than 300 receiving yards. Sources tell me that the two teams agreed just to let the defensive players sit this one out altogether.
But the real takeaway from this game is that West Virginia is not a legitimate title contender. There are three dozen high schools nationally that could throw for 400 yards against Baylor. I could throw for 400 yards against Baylor. And 63 points is the most the Bears have scored all season, even when ULM took them to the wire (and remember ULM barely beat that terrible team best known as Arkansas). Anyone that left this weekend impressed with West Virginia isn't paying attention, or isn't very smart, or both.
