Big 12 Media Days: Baylor Coach Art Briles Talks About Life After Robert Griffin III

At the Big 12 Media Days, Baylor Bears head coach Art Briles addressed the media on his expectations for the 2012 college football season. While he talked about the new players such as running backs Jarred Salubi and Glasco Martin, the big question on the media's mind on Tuesday with Art Briles was what is life going to be without Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III at Baylor.

So what we have to do is figure out ways to fill in the gaps, because Robert created a bunch of gaps. His ability from somebody else's is a big gap. We have to fill that in with a variety of different methods, schematically, personnel-wise and motivational-wise and inspiration-wise that will give us an opportunity to stay at the level we finished at last year

He also addressed how the future of the program could be dealt with regardless of Griffin exiting the program. Briles says that he plans on riding this momentum that Griffin had put Baylor on as long as possible.

The other part, we're going to live on that as long as we can, and rightfully so. Because when I talk to recruits, they're not asking about, Coach, how are you doing, boy, sure would like to come visit, or saying, Coach, tell me about R.G. III, let me know me how's he doing, how's he going to be, how's he going to do in the NFL. We're going to continue doing that

The Bears are coming off one of their best seasons, so this season will be a good indication on the long-term success of this football program.
