Some stories are from those unreliable, pesky pay sites, too. Read at your own peril.

Shaka Smart and Charlie Strong met with the media yesterday: Both Strong and Smart met with the media in the same press conference. How often do you see that at the collegiate level?

Smart addresses his staff shake up: Jai Lucas was promoted to assistant coach so TCU wouldn't steal him away. It's as simple as that.

Strong needs to win eight games: Strong understands the need for urgency and he knows that he needs to to win.

Strong is approaching the Notre Dame game as if it was just any other game: Strong made too much of it too early and he doesn't want a repeat of last year's fiasco.

Read Option(al) or some other stuff.

Bob Stoops is leading the pack: When it comes to Big 12 coaches, Stoops is the outright leader.

The Big 12 is concerned: The conference finally came out with a statement about the Baylor mess. What the heck took so long?

Schools will be lining up to give Briles a second chance: Winning is everything in college football and some schools will risk the consequences of hiring Briles.

Early recruiting rankings are deceptive: Early rankings can be more about quantity than quality. Teams that amass large numbers of recruits early may drop in the rankings after other teams add more quality players to their commitment list.


And speaking or recruiting, how is that 2016 Baylor class shaping up? Not as good as BU would like, according to Our Daily Bears.

Sports media outlets are all about the media personality and less about the sport: Why are Skip Bayless and Paul Finebaum the story and the actual story about the sport takes a backseat?

Brenda Tracy was raped by Oregon State football players in 1998 and finally gets some closure: Nebraska coach Mike Riley invited Tracy to talk to his players at Nebraska.

The PAC 12 has a transfer rule that needs to be implemented in the Big 12: The PAC 12 bans any player with conduct issues from transferring into the conference. This certainly would have stopped some of the Waco crime spree we call the Baylor football program. Edited.

Too much sugar is bad for your program health: Cupcake games are good for college football. I guess Art Briles was on to something after all not.
