The Best of #ThingsUnderBaylorsTarp

New, 6 comments

From Heisenberg to way too many Baylor jokes, the tarp has housed some pretty awesome things since it went back up in 2005.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

News broke late this morning that the Baylor Bears will be taking down the infamous "This is Bear Country" green tarp covering the south end zone seating.  It was originally thought that this tarp was there because the fans at Baylor couldn't fill up the stadium, but as we've learned today, it's real purpose was to conceal many, many things from the public's eye.

Starting out with high expectations... This one is choice.

I can't wait to see what really lies underneath that tarp...  My guess is it will be empty seats at the OU game.
