Big 12 lunch links: Nebraska consults its offensive oracle
February, 22, 2010
By Ted Miller | ESPN.com
Happy Monday. What's happening in the Big 12?
- Colorado has signed a safety from New Jersey, a 22nd member to its recruiting class. The best news is his name isn't "Snooki." Former running back Darrell Scott is considering a return.
- Kansas stars from different eras are teaming up.
- Missouri will open a Touchdown Terrace this fall.
- Why did Nebraska offensive coordinator Shawn Watson and coach Bo Pelini meet with athletic director Tom Osborne and former offensive line coach Milt Tenopir? And a Tom Shatel column on the matter.
- Oklahoma is hoping big things come in small packages at running back.
- What's the draft scuttlebutt on a couple of prospects late of Oklahoma State?
- Is Texas really part of the Big Ten's expansion plans? Texas athletic director DeLoss Dodds thinks the Big 12 should play nine conference games instead of eight. He's not as keen on making conference revenue sharing equal because the Longhorns get a larger slice of the pie.
- Texas A&M is hoping for its special teams to be more special.
- By the way, where the heck is Mike Leach these days? And, with him gone, what will the Red Raiders' offense look like in 2010?
