By now, we know that Art Briles is absolutely smitten with his quarterback, Bryce Petty. The Baylor mastermind has already gone to strange, ice cream-based lengths to promote Petty’s Heisman candidacy. Now, the coach is making comparisons between Petty and Clark Kent and Superman.
Cam Newton and Robert Griffin III have both won Heismans while embracing the Superman motif in recent years. If Petty can become a second Baylor quarterback to take home the greatest award in college football in four years, maybe Briles should be the one wearing a ‘S’ on his chest.
