Art Briles, on Jim Mora

From today’s press conference, what the Baylor coach knew about Jim Mora before starting Holiday Bowl prep:

“Playoffs?! I knew about his daddy. Playoffs? That’s one of the classics. That’s instant credibility. You know right there. And then when you get to looking at his past and what he’s done — like I said, I did not know him personally — it’s very impressive. I’m little ol’ West Texas country boy fightin’ to hang on to a high school job and he’s coaching the Atlanta Falcons and Seattle Seahawks. There’s a lot of difference in the paths to where we’re at. He’s done a tremendous job. He’s known as a good disciplinarian and a player’s coach. … He’s a good man. He’s a family man.”

    Nice attempt at motivating his team with the whole David vs. Goliath theme, but it’s not like Baylor is a D2 team. I suspect both teams will come out firing and the one that makes good defensive adjustments quicker will win the game.

    I’m pretty sure the team that scores the most points will win.
