You better respect the Baylor Bears football program; At least head coach Art Briles seems to believe the media should provide more respect than they have been giving this offseason.
Baylor won the Big 12 in 2013 and received a share of the conference championship a season ago.
So, when the media members picked Baylor to finish in second-place behind the TCU Horned Frogs, Briles fired off a comment that let everyone know how he really feels.
Baylor coach Art Briles on a roll today. On being picked 2nd: "Guess we're going to have to win 3 times in a row to get picked first."

Ouch. It is hard to argue with that.
Briles and his Bears squad will begin their quest for a third straight season with at least a share of the conference title on Friday, Sept. 4 when Baylor travels to Dallas for a meeting with the SMU Mustangs.
Baylor will then have a chance to prove they deserved the preseason nod over TCU when they meet in primetime on Friday, Nov. 27.
