Baylor Bears: Life after RG3

Posted: Updated:

The Baylor football team is coming off one of its best seasons after rattling off 10 wins last year.

Despite losing Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Robert Griffin III to the NFL, the Bears somehow think they won't miss a beat.

"We're totally fine. We started to build a team now. A team that can compete in the Big 12 and with anybody in the nation. So now it's about reloading. About continuing what we started," said Baylor senior quarterback Nick Florence.

Baylor's high-powered offense is now in the hands of Griffin's backup, Nick Florence.

"I'm just gonna come in and be Nick Florence. Yes, I'm replacing a Heisman Trophy winner, that's matter of fact. You can't change that. It's a great opportunity. I'm gonna go in and do what I can do. All you can ask for as a player is an opportunity, and that's what I get," said Florence.

The Bears, who still have a lot of weapons on offense, will come to Austin in October to face Texas, a team they've beaten the past two years. Baylor are not only looking to make another statement against Texas, but the entire league.

"We look at ourselves as the best team in the Big 12. Our goal and our mindset this year is the Big 12 championship," said Florence.

"I'm very anxious to prove to everybody that we still have a great team even though we lost the guys that we lost," Baylor Junior Nickel Back Ahmad Dixon added.
