All the Big 12-2 Conference news that is and isn't fit to read...
And some other stuff.
Texas is tougher this year. [ESPN]
"We had a phenomenal 101 knock-down blocks overall by the offense," Brown said of the 66-31 win over Ole Miss. "They were downfield knocking people down."

"I know we're headed in the right direction," Brown said at his weekly press conference on Monday. "I'm not anointing us as a team that is going to win all the games. I do think last year we didn't have a chance to win all the games. The year before we were poor. Now, nobody's going to say absolutely that we don't have a chance. We got hope. We got more confidence. Our fan base has got more confidence. We know that we got the right coaches in place. I feel like we got some really good players in place. We're headed at a good place for us. We're about to get back to where we need to be."

It's not Dayne Crist’s fault he’s not Tom Brady, the three-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback under offensive coordinator Charlie Weis.
It’s Charlie Weis’ fault for not realizing the difference.
There's some bad news for the Frogs. [ESPN Big 12 Blog]
Waymon James won't be on the field for the Horned Frogs for the rest of 2012 after suffering a knee injury in last week's 20-6 win over Kansas.
