Big 12 Rivalry: Texas vs. Baylor Heats Up
The best postgame comments are the ones you least expect. On Saturday, no one was expecting Texas linebacker Steve Edmond to take his shot at Baylor.
Following the Longhorns’ spring game, Edmond, apparently unprovoked, told reporters he still felt the sting of last December’s 30-10 loss to the Bears that helped decide the Big 12 title. Interestingly, he didn’t actually play against Baylor last season because of a lacerated liver he sustained the previous week in a win against Texas Tech.
Here are Edmond’s comments from Mike Finger of the San Antonio Express-News:
I really don’t like Baylor. I still feel they’re trash.
Y’all think it’s funny, but I’m dead serious. They’ve had some good players. … But I don’t understand how we lost to Baylor.
Baylor gets a win and act like they haven’t won before. They won it. So what? They still suck to me.
Not surprisingly, Baylor’s players weren’t impressed by Edmond’s comments:
For anyone curious, Baylor and Texas will meet Oct. 4 in Austin, so get your popcorn ready, because it’s going to be spectacular.
