Baylor has recently suspended their second leading receiver Josh Gordon for the infamous violating team rules. The suspension is indefinite and it could cause him to miss the TCU game.
In 2010 Gordon caught 42 passes for 714 yards and seven TD as a sophomore last season. He was expected to have a bigger roll in 2011. The Baylor and TCU game is the first week of the season on Friday Sept. 2 and unless Gordon misses only some of camp odds are that he will not be going up against the rival.
Baylor is supposed to be better this year and make their second straight bowl game, however Baylor's dual threat quarterback Robert Griffin III wants redemption over last years performance where Griffin was held to 164 passing and 21 yards rushing. Losing Gordon for the first game will hurt the Bears, but at least in my opinion Gordon is not a player that would be the reason TCU could beat Baylor. TCU would be favored to win whether Gordon played or not.
