Big 12 Coaches' Next Level Schemes


Bring on the Cats takes you beyond the playbook.

TJ Ford informs Rick Barnes nobody likes him


That's right, Rick Barnes is, in fact, one of the most well-detested coaches in college basketball, and it's good that his former players are kind enough to break the news to him gently.

This, of course, was Ford's congratulations to Barnes on his new 2-year contract extension, which will leave Barnes in charge of Longhorn basketball through the 2018-19 season. Texas also extended the contract of baseball coach Augie Garrido, which is a double surprise; many expected that new Texas AD Steve Patterson might be inclined to clean house after flagging results across the board.

Vengeance is mine, saith the Bill.


Oh, remember when Ryan Mueller got in trouble for giving Bill Snyder the Gatorade bath too early at the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl?

Well, Snyder got his revenge today, nailing his star defensive end with a bucket of ice as part of the ALS charity meme. Also pictured: Tyler Lockett answering Jordy Nelson's challenge.
