CFR is 'adopting' Baylor quarterback Robert Griffin.
Why not. He's an unusual player at a secondary program that appears on the ascendant. Catch a wave, right?
9/5 @ Wake Forest
15/24 (.625) for 136 yards 1 TD/0 INT
13 Carries, 41 yards (3.2) average, 0 TD
The lowlight of the outing may have been his fourth quarter fumble at Baylor's 25 that led to a Wake Forest touchdown to cut the Bears' lead from 24-14 to 24-21. Two Griffin-led drives were spoiled by a blocked field goal and a missed field goal. Amusingly, Griffin boomed a 59-yard punt after a three-and-out in the first half, the ball downed at the Wake Forest five yard line.
Overall it looks like Griffin had a real tough time completing anything other than short passes after his successful first drive, but was able to use his running ability in tandem with a decent running day from Jay Finley and a trick play touchdown to get first downs, scores, and keep the Bears' offense moving.
