Big 12 goes back in time

By Jake Trotter

It might be 2014, but a couple of players at Big 12 media days looked like they belonged in another era.

West Virginia punter Nick O'Toole, also known as the "Boomstache," wore his trademark handlebar mustache. The 'stache gave O'Toole a 1920s boxer look.

 
Meanwhile, Kansas State quarterback Jake Waters was the only player to arrive wearing a bow tie. Waters was nervous that K-State coach Bill Snyder wouldn't approve. But Snyder agreed the bow tie made Waters look distinguished.
