- If you missed it, here's my take on TCU joining the Big 12 blog. (It will also be in the Big 12 Conference.)
- A document leaked to the Associated Press outlines Missouri's options if it left for the SEC, including the financial windfall that could follow.
- The Big 12's No. 2 rusher may be lost for the season.

- Texas took a beating, but the reaction is different than what Cedric Golden of the Austin American-Statesman saw from last year's team.
- Oklahoma running back Dominique Whaley's legend only continues to grow, writes Travis Haney of The Oklahoman.
- Missouri is trying to get a redshirt for LB Will Ebner and LT Elvis Fisher. The Tigers also had a handful of changes on the depth chart this week.
