The new Big 12 football format calls for nine conference games. Which means just three non-conference games. I thought, uh-oh. There’s going to be a run on more rum-dum games.
Lots of recent action in the Big 12 on the recruiting trail.
Here's a chance to catch up...
The Rice Owls took a big blow in recruiting this week, in what was previously a big commitment for the Owls they have since lost a commitment to Texas Tech. Altair, Texas Rice Consolidated center Jared Kaster, de-committed from Rice and turned his pledge towards the Red Raiders.

In Texas, football is king. (Cliche alert) Everything is bigger in Texas, especially the love for the game. Everyone knows about “Friday Night Lights” and how the sport is woven into the state’s fabric. But the Red Raiders are overshadowed a bit despite their success over recent years. Of course, everything is second best in comparison to the Texas Longhorns. Even Texas A&M has a higher profile in terms of the reputation of its fanbase.
Hiring a father to get a kid will not bring the NCAA to campus.
So I don't consider it cheating.
I consider it wise.
Texas Tech will become the first Big 12 football team to play in San Marcos when the Red Raiders help Texas State christen renovated Bobcat Stadium in 2012.
The Red Raiders will play in the Bobcats' 2012 home opener Sept. 8. Texas State opens that season Sept. 1 at Houston.
