[quote]The fact Baylor will get left out of the BCS game[/quote]
Baylor started UNRANKED this year and that's the primary reason they'll be left out, outside the ever prevalent possibility they lose a game.
2013 AP Preseason rankings:
1) Alabama (#1 BCS)
2) OSU (#3 BCS)

Anyone who wants him is going to have to shell out A LOT to get him.
There's multiple reports ranging from $5 Million (which doesn't make sense based upon a $4mm/year for 10 years contract) to $20+ Million.
It's all speculation at this point but DMN had a tweet ...

Here's why I don't like that.
1) BU is 7-1 ATS this year. Talking heads keep saying that Vegas will inflate the ATS numbers to try and recoup.
2) KS had 291 yards rushing and 76 passing vs TT. BU is down to its 3rd string running back and is so desperate they...

Driving down I-35S is a little less boring to say the least. The stadium practically feels like it's spilling out onto the highway.

All the criticisms against Baylor are mostly accurate and deserved. Again, BU is a TERRIBLE road team. 1-8 in their last 9 big 12 road games with that one win coming against a 2-10 Kansas.

Haven't won an on the road big 12 game in regulation since 2010. They're 1-8 in their last nine big 12 road games...that one win coming from an OT game against a 2-10 Kansas team.

Sounds likes you're describing BU...at least when you read quotes from the opposing coaches that's what they are saying after they play Baylor.
