  1. DENTON – UNT Tennis on Monday has signed Baylor transfer Olivia Malm, a native of Orebro, Sweden. She will join the Mean Green as a sophomore. "Olivia brings tremendous experience having represented Sweden in the European Youth Olympics and having played for a Big 12 program for one year," said UNT tennis health program coordinator Rodrigo de Almeida. "When she came to campus for an official visit it was truly special. We believe her values and character are representative of our team's culture and cannot wait to see Olivia reach her full potential here at UNT while helping us achieve our team goals." Malm won the Swedish Championship in both doubles and singles for girls 18 and under in January of 2020. She also represented Sweden in the European Youth Olympics and won the first round in 2017. Malm won eight singles matches and four doubles matches for the top 30 Baylor Bears who reached the second round of the NCAA tournament. "I chose UNT because I feel it is a great place to improve on and off the court," said Malm. "The coaches and staffs are very supportive and positive, and I can't wait to be surrounded by great people in a great environment." Malm has held an ITF Juniors ranking as high as 598 and singles ranking as high as 1025. She has been a semifinalist or runner-up at several ITF tournaments from 2018 through 2020. The transfer was a runner-up in the Swedish Championship for doubles from 2018 through 2020. read more: https://meangreensports.com/news/2022/5/16/womens-tennis-tennis-adds-swedish-transfer.aspx
  2. July 23, 2021 Media Contact: Baylor University Media and Public Relations, 254-710-1961 Follow us on Twitter: @BaylorUMedia WACO, Texas (July 23, 2021) – The following message was sent to the Baylor University Family today from Baylor President Linda A. Livingstone, Ph.D., and Vice President and Director of Intercollegiate Athletics Mack B. Rhoades IV. Dear Baylor Family: As many of you are aware, news broke this week of an alleged change in the Big 12 Conference membership, linking the University of Texas and the University of Oklahoma with a possible move to the Southeastern Conference. Since that time, we have heard many of you express concerns about the uncertainty of our conference and the potential impact on Baylor University – a concern we share with you. We understand the significance and urgency of this matter, as our conference membership impacts not only Baylor, but also the Waco community, the state of Texas and beyond. Conference affiliation has the power to greatly enhance our institution’s academic and athletic national standing and visibility while also expanding academic and research opportunities available to faculty, students and our communities. For our state, it is critical to our economy and Texas’ overall reputation to maintain five “Power Five” institutions, reinforcing the Lone Star State’s athletic preeminence. Rest assured, we, along with the Board of Regents, members of the Baylor delegation in the Texas Legislature and other Baylor leaders, are actively engaged in conversations with our Big 12 colleagues and others to ensure our University is in the strongest position possible now and into the future. In the midst of what promises to be a lot of angst and speculation, we will continue to focus on what we can control and support our student-athletes and staffs. And, as the landscape of college athletics continues to change, we maintain an unshakable belief in the strength and resiliency of Baylor and the Baylor brand. Thank you for your enduring love of Baylor University and the vital role you play in helping Baylor carry out its Christian mission while competing academically and athletically at the highest levels. Sincerely, Linda A. Livingstone, Ph.D. President Mack B. Rhoades, IV Vice President Director of Intercollegiate Athletics LINK: https://www.baylor.edu/mediacommunications/news.php?action=story&story=224124
  3. WACO, TEXAS: Baylor University infiltrated sexual assault survivor groups to shape PR strategy and talking points on how to handle the groups and student demonstrations, according to two sources familiar with the matter. A Title IX lawsuit, filed by 10 unnamed former students, has alleged Baylor downplayed sexual assaults at the university. Some of the Jane Does say they were assaulted as far back as 2004, according to court documents. The issue came to light in August 2015, when former Baylor football player Sam Ukwuachu was convicted of sexual assault and sentenced to 180 days in county jail. Ukwuachu is appealing his conviction. Other former Baylor football players have been accused of sexual assault. In 2014, former linebacker Tevin Elliott was convicted and sentenced to a maximum of 20 years in prison on two counts of sexual assault. Former defensive end Shawn Oakman is awaiting trial. In the same month that Ukwuachu was convicted, Baylor’s office of general counsel retained Ketchum for comms support, according to Jason Cook, Baylor’s VP for marketing and comms and CMO. James Peters, former partner and director of Ketchum South, served as the account lead. A Ketchum representative declined to make Peters available for comment. read more: https://www.prweek.com/article/1491030/sources-baylor-used-mole-aid-comms-during-sexual-assault-crisis
  4. With spring in the Texas air, some Baylor University students were navigating the social challenges of another off-campus party, chatting and dancing while trying not to spill their drinks. Amid the swirl, a petite freshman named Jasmin Hernandez lost sight of her friends. Then Tevin Elliott, a 20-year-old Baylor football player dating someone she knew, appeared. Earlier he had been pouring hard liquor for Ms. Hernandez and other underage students; now he was insisting that her friends had gone outside. When Ms. Hernandez expressed doubts, she said, he began pulling her by the wrist toward the door, telling her they had gone outside. But the farther they strayed into the darkness, the more she argued that her friends were back at the party, and that they should return. Without a word, she later said in a lawsuit, the 6-foot-3, 250-pound linebacker picked up the 5-3 freshman and made his violent intentions clear. Panicking, Ms. Hernandez told him that she was sorry if she gave him the wrong impression; that they should just go back to the house and forget this ever happened; that she was, in fact, gay. He acted as though he did not hear. When Mr. Elliott finished raping her behind a secluded shed, an angry Ms. Hernandez used an expletive in demanding her shirt back. “He tossed it over to me,” she later recalled. “And that was the end of the interaction.” Ms. Hernandez, who has appeared on ESPN and who spoke to The Times for this article, assumed that her rape was a horrible but isolated incident at Baylor, a private university of nearly 17,000 students that takes pride in its Baptist foundation. And she wasn’t alone in believing that: Even after Mr. Elliott was convicted and sentenced to 20 years in 2014, Baylor officials said they considered him to be a solitary bad actor preying on a campus of goodness.

  5. Probably not just Baylor. Throw in Iowa State, Kansas probably OU... This thing is getting real interesting. Also, of interest, there appears to be a bond between the privates and the public schools in all this. Abbott and the UT bigwigs bonding towards UofH seem to support this theory. http://www.ourdailybears.com/2016/7/24/12265856/baylor-should-oppose-houston-s-big-12-bid
  6. Former Baylor University defensive end Shawn Oakman, a one-time NFL hopeful who went undrafted after he was arrested a few weeks before the draft, was indicted on a sexual assault charge Wednesday. A McLennan County grand jury indicted the 24-year-old third-team All-America on one count of sexually assaulting a Baylor graduate student in an alleged incident at his James Avenue residence on April 3. Oakman, who graduated from Baylor in December, is Baylor’s all-time sack leader. He told police detectives that the sexual relationship was consensual, and his attorney, Michelle Tuegel, said Oakman and the woman had “numerous consensual sexual encounters that occurred over a period of time before the alleged incident on April 3.” read more:http://www.wacotrib.com/news/courts_and_trials/former-baylor-de-oakman-indicted-in-sexual-assault-case/article_790e7663-7db6-5995-91f0-cdebe75afa8f.html#.V4-i95665Z0.twitter
  7. Grobe, a native of Huntington, West Virginia, coached at Ohio from 1995 to 2000 and Wake Forest from 2001 to 2013. He had a 77-82 record in 13 seasons with the Demon Deacons and his teams played in five bowl games. In 2006, Grobe guided Wake Forest to an 11-3 record and an unlikely ACC championship. http://espn.go.com/college-football/stor...erim-coach
  8. Just heard on Sirius radio that Starr is out as president of Baylor. They said the action is not official yet.
  9. Sigh. Will something be done?
  10. I am becoming more convinced that Baylor is going to win the national championship this year. Obviously they have some good teams left to beat but their offense is - in a word - unbelievable. I know Kendall Briles is young, but I think we have to give him our highest consideration... his knowledge of this offense, his recruiting abilities are impressive. The doubters will say he's too young, and there are others on that Baylor coaching staff who are running the show. There may be some truth to that. That said, his name is Briles -- he was a good college player (signed by UT) and is a key piece to one of the most prolific offenses to ever play in the NCAA. He may not be interested in this position, but I would at least put out fliers and sell him on the fact that if he wins here he will be able to land just about any big p5 job in the country. I would tell him that we would allow him to put together a very experienced staff of college coaches and great recruiters who will help him as he learns to be a great head coach. I also am extremely high on Major Applewhite. Again, he may have better options but I would at least reach out to him and sell this as a great launching pad for his head coaching career. The reality is that if Tom Hermann gets a bigger gig, they will lure Applewhite to take over. I know the game the other night for Willy Fritz was just one game, but color me unimpressed. Yes his record is impressive, but when you dig into his schedule you find out that they REALLY dumb that thing down as Georgia Southern. I have not looked at his SHSU numbers but keep in mind, that's a different ball game, you get immediate I-A transfers there and there are other things that make winning at that level a lot easier than at FBS. The other name that I like is Mike Norvell at ASU -- however, he also may be out of reach as he is making 900K as a coordinator there now. That said, if he wants to be a head coach, perhaps he would give us consideration. The exciting thing about this next hire, is that with the right package and support from the ENTIRE administration, we could really transform this program. We have all of the key pieces in place..gmg
  11. With Baylor facing scrutiny for allowing a football player with a troubled past to transfer to the school, the Big 12 is crafting a new policy that will require more diligence when looking into athletes' past disciplinary issues. Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby told The Associated Press on Wednesday he expects the new rule to be structured like the one implemented by the Southeastern Conference. The SEC prevents schools from accepting transfers who have been dismissed from another team for "serious misconduct," defined as sexual assault, domestic violence or other forms of sexual violence. Bowlsby said he expects the Big 12 rule to "cast a broad net" with its transfer policy and for schools to consider more than just violent acts. He added that decisions on transfers should involve more than just coaches, but the league office won't be making the call on whether a player should be accepted. read more: http://www.thonline.com/sports/other_sports/article_ff897e75-6a61-5bdd-b154-fd68919dae0a.html

  13. Baylor University officials said a sign displayed at a football recruiting event this weekend wasn’t intended to mislead high school prospects about the local dining spots that could soon be available should they spend their college years in Waco. Nick Joos, Baylor’s executive associate athletics director, said the poster was created independently by a member of the university’s football department as part of a session on local developments at Baylor’s Junior Day event Saturday. The poster featured the trademarked logos of Pappadeaux, Pappasito’s, Omni Hotels, In-N-Out Burger, Whole Foods Market, Uncle Mario’s Brick Oven Pizza and Potbelly Sandwich Works under the banner “Coming to Waco Soon.” But only two of the establishments — Potbelly Sandwich Works and Uncle Mario’s — are officially slated to open sites in Waco within the next year.

  14. Ok, now that I have caught your attention, this might not be as exciting as the headline makes it sound. But still. Vince Sanders, a wide receiver who was a career backup at Guyer, went to junior college and found his way to Baylor as a walk-on, plans to transfer to UNT and walk on with the Mean Green.

  15. Southern Methodist Univeraity’s support for selling beer at its big games on campus is the latest break in a long dry spell at most Texas schools. The University of North Texas at Denton and the University of Texas at Austin also are considering lifting bans on alcohol sales in the stands at football and basketball games. For now, only the University of Houston does so. The public and private universities considering the change say it could boost attendance and raise revenue. But several other Texas schools — including A&M, Baylor and Texas Christian University — remain opposed. Some cited the potential of underage drinking and rowdy, booze-stoked behavior. For SMU, its proposed expansion of alcohol sales — already permitted in the football stadium’s luxury suites — is backed by many student leaders, alumni and city officials. Bob Clark, a University Park council member, said he’s not worried about drinking-related problems. “I don’t expect it to change the character of the basketball or football games except add more fun to the atmosphere,” Clark said. “I have confidence the SMU fans and students would be responsible in their consumption.” Read more: http://www.dentonrc.com/local-news/local-news-headlines/20131015-unt-ut-consider-beer-sales-at-games-along-with-smu.ece
