Big 12 media days takeaway: Matt Rhule is off to a great start in Waco

Posted July 18th, 2017


FRISCO — A Big 12 media days takeaway from Tuesday:

Tuesday was the first chance I had to hear new Baylor coach Matt Rhule. Suffice to say, it was quite impressive.

Rhule never ducked any question, including those about Baylor’s troubles, and handled it all in an honest, straight-forward nature. You know he’s getting those questions on the recruiting trail from parents. A few more from reporters shouldn’t be a big deal, right?


“What I’ve learned in my time at Baylor and Waco is we’re not running from the past, but rather we’re learning from it,” Rhule said.

Seems to me he’s off to a great start.
