NCAA Football: Big 12 Media Days Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Oh man. Y’all have wanted content, and we provided yesterday. Jon Morse made his triumphant return from the land of no working computer to recap day one of Big 12 media day. He began with the annual look at Walt Anderson’s presentation pertaining to new rules and new enforcement of existing rules.

He then traveled across the DFW Metroplex to TCU, and examined what Frog HC Gary Patterson had to say about his team.

Following TCU, was a preview of our little brother, Kansas, and what Head Coach Doug Beaty expects from his team, and new OC Doug Meacham.

Jon then headed west to the plains of Texas to recap what golden boy, Kliff Kingsbury had to say about his Red Raiders team.

Then it was time to jump ahead to recap the Godfather of the Big 12, Bill Snyder.

Finally, Jon finished in Ames, Iowa with a look at Iowa State and Matt Campbell’s press conference.

BracketCat also marked day 46 until Wildcat football with a look at Jayd Kirby.

Finally, this morning Luke Thompson put his decoder ring on and translated Bill Snyder’s media day press conference.

Okay, let’s hop right into Big 12 media day recaps.

First, Kliff Kingsbury was asked about Scott Frantz announcement, and Kingsbury applauded his decision. (Jim Buzinski, Outsports.com)

Kingsbury wasn’t the only person to comment on Frantz announcement. Fellow teammate Dalton Risner, and Bill Snyder both applauded Frantz’s decision, and appreciated the teams reaction. (Ken Corbitt, Capital Journal)

Questions about Frantz’s announcement also made it to other conferences players including Al-Rasheed Benton from West Virginia, and OU’s Obgonnia Okoronkwo. The general sentiment among Big 12 players was they were happy for him, and acceptance for Frantz for being himself. (Cody Stavenhagen, and Eric Bailey, Tulsa World)

It seems unlikely Jesse Ertz will earn a medical redshirt and thus will embrace and enjoy his senior year with the Wildcats. (Kevin Haskin, Capital Journal)

Coming off a shoulder surgery, Ertz says he’s a stronger overall QB compared to last season. (Kellis Robinett, Wichita Eagle)

Despite respect in the preseason polls, Kansas State still believes there are people out there who don’t believe them to be a true challenger in the Big 12 title race. (Ken Corbitt, Capital Journal)

Finally, we end our football segment with a little humor, as Pistols Firing imagines what other Big 12 coaches would look like with a mullet. (PFB Staff, Pistols Firing)

Miscellaneous

Only 5 years into the K-State 2025 plan, K-State President Richard Myers announced they would roll out an updated version of the plan. With a plan as ambitious as 2025 it’s not surprising that some updates and tweaks will happen throughout the course of the plan’s lifespan. (Emily Porter, Manhattan Mercury)
