    Is this Matt Campbell’s last go in the Big 12?

    Thanks. Are you neutral on the possibility of Campbell's becoming HC there?

    Is this Matt Campbell’s last go in the Big 12?

    No need to qualify your statement further Kevin, but I’d read it if you did. I have similar feelings toward Arkansas, I’m old though. Not hoping for resurgence in Fayetteville.

    Is this Matt Campbell’s last go in the Big 12?

    He’d have a few fans. I’ve thought for some time that tOSU could be the most widely disliked program in the country. Strictly subjective opinion on my part with no evidence, obviously a few talented athletes don’t share it. Top level, second tier programs or something like that, with common...

    Thursdays in the Hubble: The stars spell Farmageddon and Bedlam

    Ugh. On topic, the only positive thought I’ve come up with this morning is that Gundy’s name will likely be removed from the IT Search Committee’s list. It‘s 2020, we’re in the B12.

    Thursdays in the Hubble: Charting the stars over Fort Worth

    In Russia they call this Rehabilitation. Or China, not sure. Maybe Argentina.

    What’s Wrong with Texas AGAIN?

    I’m going to ask an unfair question: How does Eddie Reese fit into your scenario?

    The silly season is already upon us in the Big 12

    Interesting and well-written, welcome to the fray. Among the fan base has approval of Ryan Day reached the level of Meyer?

    The silly season is already upon us in the Big 12

    Apologies if your question is rhetorical; no, I’d think that 5 or 6 in the saddle would be a successful hire. Hiring, at any level, is always a bit of a crapshoot and at the moment UM is low-hanging fruit. He may be the best possible option, I don’t know, but CDC may have a different leader...

    The silly season is already upon us in the Big 12

    I’ve no idea if the intensity of politics that permeates Texas athletics has its equal on other campuses, but I doubt any exceed ours. It may be the case that in this aspect at least we are indeed the Joneses. I wonder how long UM would last.

    The silly season is already upon us in the Big 12

    I’ve wondered more than once if the appeal of the HC position in Austin is overstated and not just by us, the understandably myopic fanbase. Up until the past few weeks I thought that CDC could be the remedy to years of uneven results in the major sports, and he still may be. But he’s been dealt...

    The 5 biggest Big 12 depth chart revelations

    Probably putting too fine a point on it but I’m looking forward to watching B12 defenses cope with B12 offenses more than v.v. Aranda’s debut as h.c. is going to be interesting to say the least.

    Ranking the Big 12's space force units: Ranking the 2020 cornerbacks

    Speaking of which, how do you watch a live broadcast — formations first, followed by defensive alignments? I found myself first trying to understand the coverages pre-snap watching SMU-TSU Saturday, helped by the many wide field shots that we normally don’t get live. If you’ve not thought about...

    Ranking the Big 12's space force units: The importance of lockdown cornerbacks

    So Patterson’s base will still be 4-down? I have some vague memory that you might have written otherwise.

    Ranking the Big 12's space force units: The importance of lockdown cornerbacks

    I’d guess that trends in statistical analysis have helped with getting innovation adopted on both sides of the ball, innovation that wouldnt have seen the field otherwise. I’m still ready to adopt any team whose offensive game plan excludes the possibility of a punt. Well, almost any team.

    Ranking the Big 12's space force units: The importance of lockdown cornerbacks

    Are there yet any other non-B12 college programs that have implemented good defenses based on ISU‘s model? Seems like offenses will be trending to Flyover sooner rather than later.

    Introduction to Big 12 defense: Handling run/pass conflicts

    I was mainly fishing for confirmation that 4-down defenses do a better job on short fields. I’ll improve once the season starts, I hope.

    Introduction to Big 12 defense: Handling run/pass conflicts

    It was either lunch or addled thought process, probably the latter — and we’re going to play 4-down, so hope played a part. Still hard for me to grasp that limiting Riley to 35 points is a win. I’m going to put all my attention on our DL and on percentage of FGA/offensive possession.

    Introduction to Big 12 defense: Handling run/pass conflicts

    Are 4-down alignments inherently more consistent from mid-field up to goal line sub packages? It seems like a 3-down flyover alignment could offer mid-field advantage that would disappear once in the red zone.

    Nebraska and the Big 12?

    It will be more than a little ironic if the B1G backtracks, though doubtful — tOSU is really taking it to the decision makers. What’s happening in Ann Arbor?
