Baylor’s offense should be illegal

Bryce Petty, Okezie Alozie, Adam Redden AP

Talk all you want about Oregon, but the best offense in the country right now resides in Waco.

Baylor continued its torrid offensive pace on Saturday against Louisiana-Monroe, scoring six touchdowns in the first 16 minutes of the game to jump out to a 42-0 lead on a team that was good enough to beat Wake Forest last week.

Quarterback Bryce Petty was 9 of 13 for 252 yards and three touchdowns during that stretch. The touchdowns covered 63, 47 and 66 yards. On the year, Petty is averaging an other-worldly 17 yards per pass attempt. His favorite target has been Antwan Goodley, who caught five passes for 156 yards and two scores. Goodley is now averaging 26 yards per catch this season.

Oh and the Bears put up these numbers while holding the ball for just three minutes.

Can Petty and Baylor keep this up? What defenses will be able to stop, or even slow down, this attack?

Looking at the schedule, it’s hard to see a defense that will be able to do it. As good as Baylor was with Robert Griffin III, these Bears may be even better.

    its funny how we rave about players during the combine in shorts and shirts but downplay their success on the field playing 11 on 11 with pads regardless of competition.

    Some of the scores this weekend should be illegal…

    Wake Forrest sucks though.

    This weekends mismatches were completely stupid. Gonna start a petition, any team that schedules a game out of their division level should be required to forfeit at least one of their balls.

    Who has Baylor played?
    UCLA – W 49-19
    Okie State – W
    TxTech – W
    #1 K-State – W

    This year non-con? opponents are better than:
    tOSU – San Diego St., Cal, and FL A&M
    L’ville – Ohio, EKent, UKent, FL Internat’l

    How is Louisville in top 10. They win a bowl game last year, what else?

    Compare Baylor’s schedule last year including beating KSU and dethroning Heisman QB.

    UCLA is ahead of them too. They were throttled by Baylor and they got a last second BLOWN call garbage TD. BU stopped their offense plans in the 3rd quarter.

    So they play same opponent as Ohio State ( Wofford). Look at the stats and score. Ohio State should be ranked about #20-25?

    OU beat La Monroe 34-0
    BU had 35 on them in the FIRST QUARTER.
    BU stopped playing with only 3 minutes gone in Q3.

    Hell if BU played more than 2 Qs they’d be putting up a 100.

    But as someone is going to tell me…we’ll see in a few weeks when conference starts. Well it should be fun.

    It’ll be interesting to see how the Baylor offense performs when its starters have to play more than the first half? ULM was no pushover ~ they were just no match for Baylor. Barring key injuries, the Bears could run the table in 2013. I’m not sure anyone ~ even the Bears ~ know just how good this team really is or can be.
