Baylor associate AD races tackle dummy, but winning comes at a price

Sarah Connor vs. The Terminator. Ken Jennings vs. Watson. And now, Sean Padden vs. a tackle dummy.

In another case of man vs. machine, Padden, Baylor’s associate athletic director for football operations, raced a tackle dummy during one of Bears’ recent practices. He won the race, but the tackle dummy was certainly out for revenge. Baylor coach Matt Rhule tweeted out a video of the showdown.

“I did it for humanity,” Padden said in a post-race interview he tweeted out.

Once their fight for mankind is over, the Bears start their 2017 campaign against Liberty on Sept. 2.
