A few reactionary thoughts:

  • I can’t believe Bill Snyder is bringing two quarterbacks. Very un-Bill Snyder like by creating this kind of drama in a QB race by bringing both to media days. He must have complete confidence and trust in both.
  • Look at the players Kansas is bringing. On skill alone, that’s a very solid foursome that you would not think is part of a 3-33 program over the past three seasons.
  • Not having the Oklahoma QB at Big 12 media days is a little weird.
  • No QB in town for the Longhorns, as expected. Tom Herman will say he has two QBs, but you know the old saying, does that really mean he has no QBs?
  • Gary Patterson is the only coach to bring more than four players.
  • If I told you one year ago Kyle Kempt is in Frisco representing Iowa State, how insane would you think I am?

Can’t wait for next week!
