Hard to believe, but this literally needs more cowbell.
- Texas A&M's Board of Regents is meeting this week to discuss the Longhorn Network and what it means for them and the rest of the Big 12. Also, the threat of a move to the SEC is not in the immediate future, reports Brent Zwerneman of the San Antonio Express-News.
- Where is Oklahoma in developing its own television network? Anthony Slater of The Oklahoman has an update with comments from OU athletic director Joe Castiglione. He also has a look at Oklahoma's new community outreach program.
- Berry Tramel of The Oklahoman looks at the problem facing Oklahoma's possible network, and what's slowed its development.
- Former Nebraska quarterback Cody Green has narrowed his transfer choices to Baylor ... and Tulsa, reports Mark Berman at KRIV-TV in Houston.
- KU running back Dreamius Smith won't be making it to campus after being unable to make the necessary ACT score, reports Joanna Chadwick of the Wichita Eagle. KU is deep at the running back spot, but the All-Name team loses a starter.
- However, KU's depth at running back (and the All-Name Team) got a nice boost. Thirteen weeks after a serious leg injury, running back Brandon Bourbon has been cleared to return to football, reports Matt Tait of the Lawrence Journal-World.
- Baylor's game against Rice will be broadcast on Fox Sports Southwest.
- Which Oklahoma player is the most irreplaceable? A panel of staffers from The Oklahoman debate the question.
- This was awesome. (What'd I tell you guys about Friday Night Lights-related material?)
- Former Missouri players got together to put on a youth football camp in St. Louis, reports Ben Frederickson of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.
- This guy is my hero.
- A&M fans, were you wondering what Dennis Franchione was up to at Texas State?
