Would anybody pick Kansas as one of their teams even they were free?  Wow.  What a crater this program is in.

Texas Tech transfer Baker Mayfield will be starting at QB for Oklahoma.

Dalvin Cook found not guilty and his suspension has been lifted by Florida State.

Another hit to the Clemson D which is trying to rebuild/reload this year.  And Michigan State loses a key member to their vaunted defense.

This could be a big blow to Arizona.  It’s never good when you lose your center.

Another week, another week of player suspensions/injuries/transfers.  See what’s happening at Florida, Utah St., Notre Dame, BYU, Oregon, and Michigan St.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row][vc_row][vc_column width=”1/1″][vc_text_separator title=”Week of August 3, 2015″ title_align=”separator_align_left” color=”grey”][vc_column_text]Most new uniforms are all the same.  They follow the same new template for the year from either Adidas or Nike.  These San Diego St. uniforms are different and pretty cool.

Big 12 Superlatives

Of course the offseason can’t be complete without news of some player problems with the law.  Problems at North Carolina, Pitt, and Tennessee.

Which quarterback will Texas A&M go with? And will it make a difference for the team this year who is running the offense?

Is that a good sign that the punter is the most important player on a team?

There are some good quarterbacks in the high-scoring PAC 12 again this year.
