Texas assistant takes shot at Baylor following Bryce Petty's selection

What a petty time to take a shot at a conference rival.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

For the second time since 2012, the Baylor Bears had a quarterback selected in the NFL Draft when the New York Jets selected Bryce Petty in the fourth round. For some reason, that prompted Texas Longhorns Director of Player Personnel Mike Giglio to take a shot at head coach Art Briles and the Bears:

While Giglio and head coach Charlie Strong experienced some significant success at Louisville in developing Teddy Bridgewater, Texas has only received one season of adequate quarterback play since 2009. As a result, the school hasn't had a player drafted at the position since the Cleveland Browns selected Colt McCoy in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL Draft.

So regardless of whatever merit Giglio's comment might have, the tweet was certainly in poor taste and not exactly cast from a position of superiority, especially since the Bears have won four of the last five games against the Longhorns.
