Baylor’s Aranda takes over with lots of state, Big 12 ties statesman.com/sports/2020012…
Mack Rhoades says Dave Aranda was his first choice and only one offered the Baylor job.
Baylor AD Mack Rhoades "We’re going to take a run at a national championship. Nothing less is acceptable and that’s where we’re headed. "
Dave Aranda: "Think defense in this league (Big 12) is making a comeback. I’d like to be at the forefront of that." He mentioned Iowa State, K-State, Baylor playing good D.
One thing I really like off the bat from Dave Aranda is he's very slow and deliberate as he talks. Easy to take down quotes :)
Dave Aranda says Tom Herman was his recruiting host at Cal-Lutheran. Says he never had a chance to talk. (pauses for big laughs)
There's another Big 12 connection for Aranda. He mentions that Sonny Cumbie was his scout team QB when Aranda was a Texas Tech grad assistant.
And now Dave Aranda gives the (required) mention of Chip and Joanna Gaines. Because Waco.
Aranda says he talked to Matt Rhule about the job. Said while he was at LSU, he wanted to come visit Baylor to talk about Bears defense. Said he pulled up Youtube videos of Rhule speaking to Baylor team.
That's the second reference to gumbo in the Aranda press conference. My first question should be shrimp or chicken/sausage.
Aranda says he watched two Baylor-OU games to prep for semifinals. "When this team job came open. ...This is in my heart, feel like God is talking to me. ... Talked to Mack (Rhoades), felt so excited, this was right for me."
And Dave Aranda is officially introduced at Baylor. https://t.co/qWgT7d6UMh
Mack Rhoades says of Dave Aranda: "He's a transformational leader of young men. He is right man to lead our program going into the future." Aranda gets another standing ovation.
Mack Rhoades says of @CoachMattRhule that he'll be "forever grateful" for what he and his staff did "moving the program forward."

Kellen Mond is the Texas Bowl MVP. Probably should be noted that the last two winners of the Texas Bowl have gone onto the Sugar Bowl the next season. (Texas, Baylor).
Kellen Mond attempted just 19 passes. That's his lowest total as a starter since his freshman season. He completed 13, which is three more than he had last time out against LSU. But he saved the game with his running - 12 rushes for 117.
That's the game. A&M clinches its come-from-behind Texas Bowl win over Oklahoma State, 24-21.
Seth Small's short FG extends A&M's lead to 24-14 with 2:52 to go. Kellen Mond has rushed for a career-high 117 yards. He had 109 against Arkansas as a freshman.
Aggies hold on fourth down. Cowboys put in Spencer Sanders at QB. Leal holds him to no gain. 8:00 to go in game. A&M gets ball on its own 34.
Chuba Hubbard goes for 42. He's now well over 100 for the game -- 137.
For the stat nerds out there, through three-plus quarters, Kellen Mond has more rushing yards (87) than passing (80).
Mond on the option keeper. That's a 67-yard TD to give A&M its first lead of the night.
Aggie defense is salty this second half. They force another punt. So far, they've posted 7 tackles for loss, three of them sacks. Ok State has stuck with Dru Brown at QB for all but one play.
Last play of third quarter wasn't an incomplete pass. Mond's knee was down. Mond then keeps, is stuffed for minus 3. Aggies will punt on 4th and 19 from their own 5.
Mond to Ausbon for TD. Key to series was offsides by Ok State to negate sack of Mond in third down. Penalty gave the Aggie offense a boost.
End of first half. Ok State up 14-7. Kellen Mond is 8 of 11 for 35 whole yards. That last floater of a pass for no gain is kind of what's been happening for the game.
Ammendola misses the FG for Ok State. A&M will get back back with :31 to play.
