Some disparity regarding how many Baylor tickets have been sold. I have heard they have sold their initial alotment and the Baylor fans on the SMU site say they will have the majority of fans there, but then, why does Baylor say the have sold just 3,000 tickets? I can buy that a lot of fans bought tickets through the DMN promotion, but I am confident this will be a majority SMU crowd. Ugh, I can't believe I even have to say it.
Baylor has had 18 players sit out of practice this week due to strep throat. You can get strep throat from kissing and is also a symptom of gonorrhea.
Baylor has other injury issues as well. Two projected starters: offensive tackle Travis Farst and wide receiver J Fields are both likely to miss the game. Sophomore CB Braelon Davis, who was listed No. 1 on the Bears' depth chart, injured his knee during spring practice and will likely miss the entire 2005 season after undergoing surgery to repair his torn ACL back in May. The NCAA Clearinghouse has requested more paperwork on David Gettis, Baylor's prized recruit from 2005; he may not play.
For your information, Baylor is riding a twenty game road losing streak. Guy Morris has never won a road game as coach of the Baylor Bears.
