Former Baylor LB leaves special ‘tip’ for TCU graduate
Move over, Red River Rivalry, there’s a new rivalry in the Big 12 conference.
After sharing a controversial Big 12 title in 2014, the Baylor Bears and TCU Horned Frogs have developed a grudge for one another as the new powerhouses in the conference. It didn’t help matters when the Bears narrowly beat the Frogs 61-58 in October.
With the high-scoring, close win, the Bears won some trolling rights (especially with some TCU fans still questioning the legitimacy of the win) and former Bears linebacker Eddie Lackey is taking advantage with a "tip" he left a TCU graduate working at a restaurant.

While the "Sic ‘Em Bears" total line might irk the TCU fan, surely she will quickly get over it heading home with $61 extra in her pocket.
This isn’t the first shot fired in the offseason between the two universities. Earlier in the week, many speculated Baylor trolled TCU by putting No. 61 Jarell Broxton and No. 58 Spencer Drango next to each other in the front row of the 2015 team photo. According to AP, a Baylor spokesman called the two sitting next to each other in the photo a "weird coincidence."

One thing is for sure: The rematch between the two in Fort Worth on Nov. 27 can’t get here fast enough.
