When the search for Baylor's head football coach finally ended with Art Briles getting the job, I started thinking about the perfect analogy for the situation.
Briles beat out No. 1 candidate Mike Singletary for the coveted job, but here's how I saw it. Singletary was candidate 1A and Briles was candidate 1B.
It reminded me of the TV show, Dancing With the Stars, where the race car driver and the Spice Girl were the two finalists in this year's event. In that case, the race car driver beat out the Spice Girl.
In Baylor's case, Briles was the race car driver and Singletary was the Spice Girl.
