Day 1 of Big 12 Media Days is in the books, and I sat down with MarkRogersTV to recap the day.
There were some technical difficulties as we battled the constraints of the limited available bandwidth, which lead to me rambling a bit since I wasn’t sure what was getting through. It actually came out pretty good, though.
So let’s talk Media Days. It is a frenzy. Things kicked off around 9:00 AM with Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby taking the main stage. Gary Patterson, David Beaty, Kliff Kingsbury, Matt Campbell and Lincoln Riley then following suit throughout the morning. In the afternoon, the coaches and players were available for breakout sessions. So basically, it’s a lot of information to take in a short amount of time as we are basically game planning our interviews, getting quotes for article ideas, and then moving on to the next interview with the plan to go over all the information later.
So my talk with Mark was really the first time I had stopped to take in the day, which sorry, also contributed to the rambling.
In the rambling I gave my thoughts on my first impressions of the coaches — who impressed, who might be feeling the pressure — and which player interviews stood out. Give it a quick watch, and subscribe to MarkRogersTV if you haven’t already.
