Mitchell Daly started hearing cheers when down 1-2 with nobody out in the bottom of the sixth against WVU’s Ben Abernathy. It wasn’t for something he did. It wasn’t even about anything that occurred at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. Texas fans were celebrating the result of a game almost 700 miles from Austin.
The Big 12 has eliminated Conference Rule 6.3 requiring student-athletes to forfeit a year of eligibility if they are intraconference transfers, sources tell Inside Texas. Eligibility of transfers from one Big 12 school to another will be determined solely by NCAA guidelines.
Prior to the 2019 season, most Big 12 teams knew who their QB1 was. There were some open competitions, but most teams across the conference knew who was lining up under center when week one showed up.
It’s that time of year when the All-Big 12 preseason polls and teams are coming together across the league’s media.
