A friend of mine noticed it first, right there in Waco’s Castle Heights neighborhood — a live oak tree stump carved into the shape of a bear, complete with paw raised and holding a sign that says “sic ‘em.”
The tree-turned-bear stands in the front yard of Dr. Dick Couey, BA ’63, a Baylor graduate and longtime BU professor. “You cut me, I think I would bleed green and gold, because I love Baylor,” he says. “I just thought about a bear, to let people know that that’s part of my life — being a Baylor Bear.”
Sic ’em, Dr. and Mrs. Couey!
