Texas LB calls Baylor ‘trash,’ says ‘they still suck to me’

Other than Tyrone Swoopes‘ struggles, there wasn’t a whole heck of a lot of news coming out of Charlie Strong’s first spring game at Texas.

Well, that and a Longhorn giving a conference rival some serious bulletin board material.

Following the spring game, Steve Edmond was one of several UT players to make an appearance in front of the media.  When asked about how Strong can improve the Longhorns’ fortunes from the last couple of years, the linebacker decided to go off on a tangent and aim some rather sharp words directly at the reigning Big 12 champs, Baylor.

“We could have won the conference. Even though I didn’t get a chance to play in the Baylor game, I really feel like we should have beat Baylor. I really don’t like Baylor. I still think they’re trash. …

“I’m mad as I can be. I knew we were a better team than they were. And then … Baylor gets the win and acts like they had never won before. Even in high school, you know how to react when you win a game. It’s not like you never won a game.

“I’m like, ‘They won it, so what?’ They still suck to me.”

Thanks to Oklahoma State’s upset loss to Oklahoma earlier in the day, the Texas-Baylor game Dec. 7 turned into a de facto Big 12 championship game. After playing to a 3-3 tie through the first two quarters of play, the Bears outscored the Longhorns 27-7 the rest of the way to claim the conference title and its first-ever spot in a BCS bowl.

In fact, Baylor has come out on top of Texas in three of the last four meetings, with the only loss in that span coming by six points in Austin in 2012. Perhaps that’s why Edmonds, who missed last year’s loss due to a lacerated liver, reiterated his stance with an “I don’t like Baylor” to conclude his remarks.

Regardless, current and former members of the Baylor football program had a chuckle at Edmond’s bombast.

Oh, and for those wondering, Baylor and Texas will next meet again Oct. 4 in Austin.  Go ahead and grab yourselves some popcorn now as that one’s going to be some fun.

    Man oh man I wish it was today!

    Not sure why a student athlete talking trash about an in state rival is news. The real loser here is the English language.

    You always sound like a moron when you assume that you were better than the team that just beat you. This guy is a delusional F.c…g Idiot.

    Maybe it’s time for bevo to run Baylor outta XII also. UTSA it’s almost your turn.

    Swoopes (rhymes with Oops) was 4-18 passing in the first half. He heated up in the second half when the second team defense was instructed to stop rushing the passer. The D line just stood at the LOS for the entire second half.

    Art Briles might hang a hundred on them next year.

    Yes, rabbi, spot on. There’s not really a “student” in that “student-athlete” label. They’re interning for a spot in the NFL and the NCAA uses that pipe dream to make billions of dollars while claiming the “student” part is important.

    It’s super, super, super funny to hear an Aggie post on this thread about:

    1.)Defense
    2.)Quarterback play this year

    Taking bets on how many hours it will take before Edmond and/or Texas offers a canned, politically-correct public apology. Ripping into a rival program in college is almost as blasphemous as attacking a player refusing to wear gear from the school-affiliated shoe company.

    God I miss football.

    @goodfieldnohit

    I swear, sometimes I think you know more about my own team than I do. The sad thing is you’re an Aggie and stated only a couple weeks ago that you guys weren’t concerned with what the Horns were doing. Way to flush that theory down the toilet.

    If Baylor is trash and won your conference, what does that make you?

  12. chunkala says: Apr 20, 2014 11:43 PM

    ^It means that both Baylor and Texas play in a terrible conference.
    UCF blew out Baylor, thats pathetic.

  13. lgbfl says: Apr 21, 2014 8:29 AM

    This guy will get along well with the delusional Charlie Strong, who still claimed “the best team didn’t win” after UCF beat Louisville last season.

    Here’s a tip for Charlie & Steve: Unless the refs blow a huge game-changing call, the best team always wins. It’s really that simple. Just look at the scoreboard. The team with the bigger number was the best team that day.

    When you say otherwise, you look like an incredibly sore loser and very immature.

    I’ll give you #1, our defense was terrible, but lets not forgot your horns gave up 500+ on the ground to BYU and got smacked at home by a team the Aggies beat on the road (with our terrible defense).

    But I’m definitely not sure what you mean by #2…. Are you trying to say our QB play was subpar this year? Because I’m pretty sure he was standing up there in NY at the end of the year as a Heisman finalist.

    Funny thing is that if Mack Brown was still the coach, this would be trotted out as an example of him having lost control of the team. Looks like Charlie Strong hasn’t taken control of the asylum from the inmates yet.

  16. tgaustin says: Apr 21, 2014 5:14 PM

    8t08,

    Talking about the Ag’s QB situation this year and the Ag’s defense all together. Yes, the Horns got throttled by BYU, however, after firing Manny no-D the defense did a 180. Looks like it’s a coin flip for schools in regards to the QB situations. I hope your Kyle Allen doesn’t turn into a Garrett Gilbert. Guess we are hoping that Jerod Heard will save the day once he gets on campus.

  17. 8to80texansblog says: Apr 21, 2014 7:40 PM

    Garrett Gilbert was 2nd in FBS in total yards last year…. I think it’s just that Mack was misusing him.

    Gilbert got tossed into the fray in an impossible situation and was never able to recover at UT.

    This has to be the HIGHEST compliment ever. Baylor was the doormat of the conference FORever until a couple of years ago. The fact that someone even noticed them enough to call them trash is awesome!

    He says they act like they “never won before.” Hell, as an alumni, it sure as Hell felt that way.

    Sic ‘em!

  19. 8to80texansblog says: Apr 23, 2014 2:22 PM

    I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again… Bears fans just have to just be giddy right now. This is definitely the golden age of Baylor football, actually Baylor sports as a whole.

    Let’s see, BYU a school known for it’s passing offense, rushes for a school record 550 yards against Texas. The same BYU that played against the defensive titans of the WAC and Mountain West and yet it set the school rushing record against Texas. The 550 yards rushing was also a record for a Texas defensive squad. Now tell me, who SUCKS! Well that would probably be The University of Texas. Hopefully, they will manage to do better this year. Historically, Texas is 1-3 against BYU with one of the loses being ugly, 47-6 in 1988.
