Big 12 Media Days Begin
Updated: Tuesday, July 23 2013, 10:21 AM CDT
Even though West Virginia doesn't take the podium until Tuesday, The Mountaineer still came out firing as Big 12 Media Days began in Dallas. Offering postcards and, more importantly, deer jerky, Jon Kimble's role is never overvalued.
While he couldn't actually fire his rifle - we think - Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby wasn't afraid to take some shots at the NCAA.
"We need to reconfigure the leadership of the organization," Bowlsby said. "We haven't wanted to put the threat of secession of the table, and there aren't many who think it's a legitimate threat.
Neither seccession nor realignment are issues, at least, for now. So the talk did actually turn to football. And nothing in the world could top the Charlie Weis recruiting pitch. Absolutely nothing.
"Have you looked at that pile of crap out there?" Weis said when asked how he gets recruits to come to Kansas.
If there is one thing the Jayhawks can boast that no one else would Monday, it's a starting quarterback. Former BYU QB Jake Heaps takes the reigns in Lawrence. None of the other four - not Oklahoma State, not Kansas State, not TCU, not Texas Tech - would name a starter.
Of course you'll quickly forgive Texas Tech head coach Kliff Kingsbury for not naming a starter. Last year as offensive coordinator at Texas A&M, he waited until August 15th to name a guy, and Johnny Manziel turned out alright for the Aggies, didn't he?
