Big 12 Football

The Longhorn Network will broadcast Texas' first two football games this year, against Wyoming and New Mexico. BON's Peter Bean predicts that this may be the impetus to get carriage deals done before the season. Stay tuned.

At the rate they're going, Oklahoma isn't going to have any offensive lineman by the time the season gets here. This does not encourage me for two reasons: (1) for all we know, we could be down this many linemen, too, and (2) I'm not sure we have the defensive line to take advantage of this type of supposed weakness.

Bill has two more previews of Big 12 teams. First up is Texas Tech, and a look at whether Tommy Tuberville can make strides this year with one of the most experienced teams in college football. Second, can Oklahoma State consolidate its gains despite the loss of Brandon Weeden and Justin Blackmon?

Champions Bowl

The Champions Bowl has requested bids from 10 cities. Shockingly, Kansas City was not among them.

How TV Changed College Football

Andy Staples has an extensive look at the effect television has had, and continues to have, on college football. So extensive, in fact, that I haven't had a chance to read all the way through it.
