Just real smooth.
- Oklahoma State quarterback Clint Chelf almost quit last year, but teammates' support kept him around, writes Gina Mizell of The Oklahoman. I wouldn't have blamed him if he had.
- Kliff Kingsbury wants Texas Tech to play without thinking. Get a good look at how that happens in this Grantland short documentary.
- Paul Myerberg of USA Today takes a closer look at Baylor, No. 33 on the publication's countdown.
- Poor TCU. Six days into camp and it's already had three players leave the team. Crazy.
- Rough couple of haircuts at K-State camp right here. Bill Snyder flunked out of Mizzou back in 1958, but it helped him become the man he is today, writes Vahe Gregorian of the Kansas City Star. (On a personal note, it's great to see Vahe back covering the Big 12 these days.)
- Interesting anonymous survey of college football players from around the country from our ESPN The Magazine crew.
- Iowa State sold a record number of season tickets for the third season in a row.
- Krista Pirtle of the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal writes about Texas Tech's depth at running back, and includes a shoutout to yours truly. Props. Apparently the running back corps is using this as motivation.
- Oklahoma defensive end Michael Onuoha will miss the first three games after shoulder surgery.
- Rustin Dodd of the Kansas City Star writes about Cassius Sendish versatile but important role in Kansas' defense.
- Clint Trickett sounds pretty psyched to be back in Morgantown.
- Gina Mizell of The Oklahoman has a few deleted scenes from an earlier story on Oklahoma State OL coach Joe Wickline.
- Iowa State is looking to control the clock with its offense this year, writes Randy Peterson of the Des Moines Register.
- Stats don't tell the whole story of Shaun Lewis' value to OSU's defense, writes Kelly Hines of the Tulsa World.
