The Big 12 Football Media Days. The Big 12 Football Media Days are upon us. You can view the complete schedule at the Big 12 site or you can just follow along here. If you want to stream it from your computer, then the Big 12 has you covered. You can also watch it live on Fox Sports Southwest. Things actually kick off at 9:00 am, with Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby and then some other guy that I'm not sure who he is, Matthew Sign, the CFO from the National College Football Foundation. This is today's schedule:
Baylor Bears @ 10:00 am
Attendees: Art Briles, QB Bryce Petty, WR Antwan Goodley, LB Bryce Hager, DE Shawn Oakman
Kansas Jayhawks @ 10:30 am
Attendees: Charlie Weis, WR Nick Harwell, LB Ben Heeney, TE Jimmay Mundine, S Cassius Sendish

Dedicated Texas Tech Page. Texas Tech has their own page to follow the event and will probably be populated once things get going, so you could probably check back there and it will change. Also, if you want to follow along on Twitter, there's probably a ton of folks you could be following, but that's the way to stay the most up to day.
Links. If you need some links, I'm here to entertain.
- The Tulsa World wonders what is in store for Big 12 Media Days.
- The USA Today on the Big 12's new look heading into the media days.
- The Desert News on how the Big 12 isn't wanting to expand, but BYU stands ready.
- Five questions from 24/7 Sports on the Big 12 Media Days, not one of them involving Texas Tech.
- The DMN has three key storylines for Texas Tech today. Also, from the DMN is the idea that you can expect Bowlsby talk about what separates the Big 12 from other conference, which is a true round-robin, but no conference championship game.
- NewsOK has their staff writers pick the Big 12 and Texas Tech is anywhere between 3rd and 8th for the handful of writers.
- The LAJ is ranking all defenders in the Big 12 and they rank Devonte Fields #1, which I don't understand. I guess if you are voting off of potential, sure, but if you are voting off of what folks did last year, then guys like Ryan Mueller is getting robbed.
- Crimson and Cream Machine ranks the receivers and thinks that the Red Raiders has the #4 group of receivers.
