So what are the chances that Baylor gets to a bowl game for the first time since 1994?

It has been a while since Colorado sported an offensive line that had its coaches “giddy.”

Collin Franklin has improved as a pass catcher and a blocker for Iowa State this year.

HERE is a look at former Kansas Jayhawks that are now in the NFL.

With No. 7 Nebraska and Taylor Martinez coming to town, Kansas State will have its hands full. They better take away a win, because five of the next seven games are on the road.

Jimmy Burge is a reserve defensive lineman for Missouri; therefore he does not have to listen to the team rules. Apparently this is valid when you consider how many Tigers have been in trouble as of late.

Wow! Evidence is now showing that former Nebraska star and current Detroit Lion Ndamukong Suh had been in contact with former UNC associate head coach John Blake. Might the Cornhuskers have to evacuate some wins? Do not drop your remote mouse!

Nebraska’s Rickey Thenarse has a wondrous story.

Oklahoma’s Bob Stoops addressed the media during the Sooners’ bye week.

HERE is a look at former Oklahoma State players now in the NFL.

I made a classic joke the other day that Texas fans and officials would start Mack Brown-hot seat talk after the Longhorns’ second consecutive loss. Well, apparently some people took it a little too seriously. Still others understand Brown is a ridiculously good coach, and that problems may lay at the quarterback position elsewhere.

The fast offenses of the Big 12 may be criticized for being systems, but they do put defenses on its heels. Texas A&M happened to be the latest victim in its 38-35 loss last Friday to Oklahoma State.

After Texas Tech’s past two games, “[t]hat transition to Tommy Tuberville now feels about as smooth as sandpaper.”
