College football is just 17 days away, and as we gear up for the season we’re looking to bring on a couple of new contributors! Do you like to write? Love and understand college football? We’d love to talk to you!
From Around The Big 12
We’re continuing our season preview series, and conference play is just getting underway. Who you got, Texas or Oklahoma State? | The LGG
Baylor can’t stop throwing shade at TCU or their fans. Although in this case, I doubt TCU fans mind too much. | The LGG
Christmas came way early for Texas Tech this weekend. | The LGG
Stewart Mandel is the latest to give the Horned Frogs the nod over the Bears. | Fox Sports
It looks like Kansas State might have a leader in their QB race. | Kansas City Star
Should we start to worry about the Frogs defense? | ESPN
Welp. In early July it was reported that WVU and FSU were trying to get a deal done to add each other to the schedule. It looks like that’s not going to happen. We aren’t that surprised. It seemed unlikely from the start since the Mountaineers schedule is absolutely stacked through 2021. | Charleston Gazette
Tight ends are going to be a big part of the Jayhawks’ new offense. | KUSports.com
Let’s check in on the Longhorn’s fall camp. | Barking Carnival
Iowa State is putting an emphasis on getting the ball back. | Iowa State Daily
“Skeptics still abound, but there’s mounting evidence that the Longhorns junior quarterback [Tyrone Swoopes] is growing and maturing as a person and a player.” – I have just one question. Why hasn’t he been named the starter then? | Burnt Orange Nation
Previewing the Big 12 | Dallas Morning News
“All three played well,” Riley told OU’s official website. “They had command, took care of the ball, made a lot of plays. It’s a heck of a competition. It’s been fun to watch them all get better. Where they were three months ago and where they are right now is a night-and-day difference. I wouldn’t trade those three for anybody.” | Dallas Morning News
College Football Across The Country
Arkansas lost their leading rusher for “an extended period of time” after suffering a foot injury during a scrimmage. At this point it looks like he won’t make it back in time to face Texas Tech in week 3. | College Football Talk
Clemson is banning their players from posting on social media during the season, and apparently they’ve been doing this for a while. | USA Today
Jason Day won his first major in spectacular fashion. | CBS Sports
Matt Barnes thinks he dating, or about to date, Rihanna. No, no he’s not. | SB Nation
Trent Richardson thinks the NFL is too easy. He’s intentionally running away from easy touchdowns just to give himself a challenge.
maybe Trent Richardson just wanted to go hang out with his friends in the pile did you ever think about that jerks? pic.twitter.com/CqBYOfVOXj
