Texas making it look easy
By David Ubben
WACO, Texas -- Art Briles' Baylor team is getting hammered all over Floyd Casey Stadium.
But Briles just took an unusual timeout specifically to chew at officials and especially back judge Shawn Hochuli after cornerback Tim Atchison was flagged for taunting after an incomplete pass.
Briles' filibuster wasn't successful. And to make matters worse, Colt McCoy and Jordan Shipley hooked up on a 7-yard touchdown pass to extend the Longhorns' lead to 28-0.
Shipley's scoring grab came only three plays after he had been knocked out of the game on a devastating hit by Baylor's Tracy Robertson that was penalized by officials for taunting.
No wonder Briles is mad -- as much for the score as the recent run of penalties.
