- USA Today ranks the Big 12 football stadiums. Some interesting selections here for sure.
- Texas defensive coordinator Manny Diaz is a quote machine, writes Randy Riggs of the Austin American-Statesman.
- Oklahoma quarterback Landry Jones doesn't sound very interested in a war of words with UTEP quarterback Nick Lamaison, who had some big words earlier this offseason. However, UTEP coach Mike Price is apparently a fan of "Dumb and Dumber". My hat is off, sir.

- Oklahoma State do-everything special teamer Quinn Sharp has added a new kick to his arsenal, writes John Helsley of The Oklahoman.
- TCU's depth chart is out, and coach Gary Patterson isn't kidding around about how young this team will be.
- Oklahoma's Gabe Lynn left high school as one of the most feared cornerbacks in the state. He never thought his career would take him to where he is now, though, writes Jason Kersey of The Oklahoman.
