Baylor Vs. Louisiana Monroe 2012: Win Shows Good And Bad For Bears

Friday's Baylor Bears win against the ULM Warhawks proved to be one of the most exciting games of the college football season. Despite the 47-42 win, Mark C. Moore over at Our Daily Bears said Baylor showed many positives and negatives that will follow the team all season long:

Our offense did basically everything I expected against ULM's defense. Yes, the two interceptions were killers early, especially the first, but overall they showed an attack that should send shivers up the spines of Big XII defensive coordinators. Baylor finished with 544 yards on 88 plays, the ninth time in a row the team topped 500 yards. Our offense is the most known of known quantities. And it appears we will go as far as they take us.

Moore went on to call the Bears' defense an abomination, as Louisiana-Monroe put up 560 yards of total offense. On the plus side, Moore called Baylor's receivers the strength of the team as Tevin Reese, Terrance Williams and Lanear Sampson combined for 322 yard receiving.
