"We wanted to come out here and dominate," Baylor standout freshman quarterback Robert Griffin said, "and we did."For as long as Robert Griffin has been drawing breath, Baylor has never "dominated" Texas A&M - nor, before this season, even dreamed it could be done. The game drew 43,000 fans for two teams with losing records. Many of those were Aggies, but, still, Baylor has a little something going when they can draw (28,000 or so?) fans for a consistently sad sack program.
The Bears rushed for 269 yards, their most ever in a Big 12 game.
Baylor's defense limited A&M to 64 rushing yards and forced five turnovers, including four interceptions by Johnson.
By the end of the third quarter, Baylor led, 41-7, and was in cruise control.
Could Griffin go into the NFL and become what Vince Young should've become? Griffin will benefit from a traditional throwing motion and 4 years of experience in Baylor coach Art Briles' advanced passing offense. If Griffin cannot QB in the NFL, I predict he will succeed as either a WR or SS. I fantasize about him at CB, but that is unlikely. Still, I'd like to see it.
