Game-changer to Big 12′s bottom half?
CAMPUS CORNER — Haven’t seen too, too many headlines about him this week in Big 12 country, but I’m curious what Oregon transfer Lache Seastrunk’s impact will be at Baylor after he sits out his required time for swapping schools.
Robert Griffin was the player many thought would elevate the Bears into a top-25-type team – and Baylor seems at least more relevant because of Griffin – but can Seastrunk be a difference-maker? Can he push the Bears into being at least a perennial bowl team? Is it possible for a running back, even a good one, to make that much of a difference, even?
Seastrunk’s strange name has been attached to plenty of less-than-flattering headlines – like this one – stemming from the Willie Lyles recruiting stuff that has the Ducks in hot water. He comes off as flaky, even if he isn’t. And he brought the “feds” to Eugene.
Too much baggage? Or guy who could be one of the league’s better players once he gets on the field, because he’s that good? (Art Briles is pulling for the latter.)
Same questions could be asked of another big-time transfer into the conference, former-Tennessee-turned-K-State RB Bryce Brown. The answer on the Browns, also including his brother, LB Arthur, will come sooner. We at least know a little, and only a little, more about Bryce Brown. Seastrunk’s only action with the Ducks came in the spring game.
