Big 12 Media Days gets underway on Monday! There’s still a few weeks to go before pads start popping, but Media Days always has a way of getting me pumped for the season! We’ll hear from the coaches about how they’re attacking the season, key players will give us some insight on where their team is at, and best of all, there’s sure to be a little shade thrown! It’s a fantastic couple of days, and we’ll be sure to be all over the action!

Here’s the full breakdown of who’s representing their school, and which day they’re attending.

Monday – 7/20/15

TCU headlines Monday’s grouping, but I like West Virginia and Texas Tech to surprise some folks this season, so I’m looking forward to them as well. It will also be interesting to hear how Bill Snyder plans to regroup after losing so much key talent, and just what David Beaty hopes to gain from this season.

KANSAS
HC – David Beaty
DE – Ben Goodman
TE – Ben Johnson
OL – Jordan Shelley-Smith

KANSAS STATE
HC – Bill Snyder
DB – Dante Barnett
DB – Morgan Burns
WR – Stanton Weber
OL – Cody Whitehair

TEXAS CHRISTIAN

QB – Trevone Boykin
OL – Joey Hunt
S – Derrick Kindred
DE – James McFarland

TEXAS TECH
HC – Kliff Kingsbury
C – Jared Kaster

RB – DeAndre Washington

WEST VIRGINIA
HC – Dana Holgorsen
S – Karl Joseph
LB – Nick Kwiatkoski
OL – Tyler Orlosky
RB – Wendell Smallwood

Tuesday – 7/21/15

There’s no shortage of heavy weights in Tuesday’s group. With seven players named to the Preseason All-Big 12 Team, Baylor is the favorite on paper, but Oklahoma State and OU just may have something to say about that. We’ll also hear from Charlie Strong about where he expects the Longhorns to be, but we’ll see if he sheds any light on the QB situation in Austin.

Kansas’ road ahead is bleak, but Paul Rhoads may be the real victim of a year where several schools are looking to improve. He’ll need to get the Cyclones bowl eligible to stay off the hot seat, so curious to hear how he feels about this year’s squad.

BAYLOR
HC – Art Briles
DL – Andrew Billings
WR – Corey Coleman
OT – Spencer Drango
DE – Shawn Oakman

IOWA STATE
