The Big 12 media days should be fun this year. Not as fun as they could be, but fun. Nebraska, who blamed nearly everyone on their way out, won't be there the same time as Texas.â†µ
But there will be some other marquee matchups at the media days.â†µ
Missouri, Oklahoma State and Texas Tech are up on the second day. Officials and fans from OSU and Tech have been ticked off at the Tigers because of some dimwitted comments made by Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon when he thought the Tigers were Big Ten-bound.â†µ
"I'm not going to say anything bad about the Big 12," said Nixon, who then proceeded to do just that with this, "but when you compare Oklahoma State to Northwestern, when you compare Texas Tech to Wisconsin, I mean, you begin looking at educational possibilities that are worth looking at."
It's just over three weeks away.
