By Michael Haag | Sports Editor

It hasn’t been the smoothest ride for the Bears (26-26, 7-17 Big 12), but amid their injuries and missed opportunities, they find their place as the eighth-seed for the 2022 Phillips 66 Big 12 Baseball Championship at Globe Life Field, home of the Texas Rangers, in Arlington.

Before we finally had our series restart and Baylor was fighting Kansas for the bottom dweller football status of the Big12, I was on both forums. Baylor fans were convinced that TCU had no chance against a BCS team like Baylor.

Looking back, it was an absurd position given the strength of the Mountain West Conference.

”Well Baylor has better athletes because we’re in the Big12.”

Forget TCU was beating some really good Utah, BYU, and Air Force teams plus some great bowl wins. Bear fans were convinced that their “take your little brother to the movies” position in the Big12 translated into talent.

When TCU beat their butts in Waco that first game, those Azzhats could not accept the fact TCU had built a great program.

Sick ‘Em!
