Big 12 Media Day 2 Recap: Expansion?!

New, comments

Day 2 of Big 12 media days featured Kansas State, and conference expansion.

Tuesday was a busy day here at Bring on the Cats, as BracketCat reminded us we are only 45 days away from kickoff.

JT VanGilder did yoeman's work, as he broke down the rules changes coming in 2017, and took a stab at trying to decipher if Bill Snyder told us anything of value during Media Day.

Finally, AMS, Wildcat00, and TB conducted a round-table about Big 12 expansion and what yesterday's decision by the Big 12 to begin looking at candidates actually meant.

Bill Snyder noted yesterday that Kansas State has three No 1. QB's, and the competition for starter remains strong between Joe Hubener, Jesse Ertz, and Alex Delton. (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)

After an injury on the first series of the season last year, Ertz will need to prove he is 100% healthy in order to by tabbed as QB 1 heading into the season opener. (Ken Corbitt, Capital Journal)

It would certainly come as a blow to Kansas State, but Bill Snyder understands the need to have a discussion about removing kickoffs from football. (Kevin Haskin, Captial Journal)

Speaking of Bill and this thoughts, who exactly does the tweeting for the 76 year old coach? Coach Snyder insists he does his own tweeting, even if the other Big 12 coaches remain skeptical. (Riley Gates, Capital Journal)

Bill Snyder also received the opportunity to wax poetically about his favorite subject; instilling pride in Wildcat fans and bringing the community together to support Kansas State. (Berry Tramel, The Oklahoman)

Maybe the biggest news of yesterady was the conference's shift towards expansion, and as Berry Tramel point out the ACC's newest grant of rights may have spurred that move. (Berry Tramel, The Oklahoman)
