In news that will surprise no one, victim's families are not pleased at the idea of a possible second act for Briles: A family member summed this up well: "This is a very dirty place that we’ve seen has been very conniving and low down.

Baylor recruits are still in limbo: Baylor has yet to release their recruits from the LOIs. What are they waiting for?

Athletic departments should not be allowed to treat sexual assault allegations like annoying obstacles to winning: It is time that schools stop hoping the stories go away without any kind of action.

There is a downside to winning at all costs: College football needs talented coaches who are good role models with a strong moral compass.

Big 12 QBs are doing some remarkable hings with a football: Tech's Patrick Mahomes dropped to his knees and passed a football 65 yards.
