AUSTIN, Texas — The 2014 season is still months away, but Texas linebacker Steve Edmond is wasting no time stirring things up in the Big 12.
Edmond called league champion Baylor “trash” on Saturday after Texas wrapped up spring practice with its annual scrimmage.
Edmond missed last season’s 30-10 loss to the Bears because he was out with a lacerated liver. The victory clinched the league crown for the Bears and denied Texas its first title since 2009.
“I really don’t like Baylor,” Edmond said. “I still feel they’re trash.”
Texas has lost three of its last four against Baylor. The teams meet Oct. 4 in Waco.
“Y’all think it’s funny, but I’m dead serious,” Edmond said. “They’ve had some good players. . But I don’t understand how we lost to Baylor.”
