You know it's a whole new world in the Big 12 when a man in a coonskin cap is milling around the lobby of media days. Haven't seen any Frogs yet. My guess is we will soon.
Preseason camps open across the Big 12 during the first week of August, but today, half of the Big 12's coaches will bring a caravan of 3-4 players to meet the league's media. The other half will follow on Tuesday.
