Big 12: Kyle Slavin
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Griffin
Several Big 12 newspapers are really racheting up their techonological advances with podcasts and streaming video throughout the summer. It makes for a multi-media delight during the long wait until preseason practice begins.
And without much college football talk on the radio in these parts of South Texas, a couple of these reports were as welcome to me as a cold pitcher of lemonade on a 100-degree day, which it again promises to be here today.
