RG3: ‘Baylor Has Never Gotten The Respect It Has Earned’

Baylor,the #1 offense in the nation, surged seven sports from No. 12 to No. 5 in the USA TODAY Sports Coaches Poll after a 71-7 win over Iowa State last weekend. And Sunday, when the first BCS rankings came out, the Bears were No. 8, the highest ranking the program has received in BCS history.

But is it high enough?

Although Redskins QB Robert Griffin III, a Baylor alumni, is proud of the work the Bears have done, he doesn’t believe their performance is seen the same way by the fans as it is by him:

“Baylor has never gotten the respect that I feel it has earned over the past couple of years. People think if we’re winning the conference it’s because the conference is weak, not because Baylor is good.”
