Oklahoma Tops Kansas On Last Second, High-Flying Tip-In

Kansas already clinched their 11th straight Big 12 regular season title, but they could've done without this gut punch from Oklahoma on the final day of the regular season. Oklahoma dumbly fouled Frank Mason III on a three-point attempt with five seconds left, and he made all three free throws to tie the game up at… » 3/07/15 6:51pm 3/07/15 6:51pm

Video: Art Briles Confronts Bob Bowlsby Over Big 12 "Co-Champs" Snub

Reader Alex L. sends along video he shot of Baylor coach Art Briles confronting Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby following the Bears' win over Kansas State on Friday.

Big 12 Announces There Could Be Two "One True Champions"

Since it's believed the College Football Playoff selection committee will reward teams for winning conference championships, knots in the Big 12's undies tightened because the Big 12's highest rated team, No. 5 TCU, doesn't control its own destiny in winning the conference's championship. Afraid it might get left out… » 12/02/14 2:08pm 12/02/14 2:08pm

Iowa State A.D. Is Madder Than Hell About Big 12 Officiating

Iowa State athletic director Jamie Pollard gave a bizarre press conference today. With Cyclones' head coach Paul Rhoads standing a few feet away, Pollard goes after Big 12 refs for costing Iowa State football games. The Cyclones fell to 1-4 today after a loss to Oklahoma State.

Kliff Kingsbury Morphing Into Charlie Weis Is Quite Disturbing

The Big 12 has a commercial with some of the conference's coaches morphing into each other, and that's how we get Kliff Kingsbury turning into Charlie Weis. This transformation can actually happen if Kingsbury screws up every major decision in his future. Don't do that, Kliff. You're too handsome to ever coach Kansas. » 8/31/14 2:35pm 8/31/14 2:35pm

Big 12 Commish Is Full Of Shit About Pay-For-Play Killing The Olympics

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby spoke to reporters during a press conference this morning, and spent a good deal of time painting a bleak picture of the future of college sports. What does Bowlsby see on the horizon, in a post-O'Bannon world? Athletes unionizing! Massive program cuts! The death of the Olympics! » 7/21/14 12:40pm 7/21/14 12:40pm

Kansas Snaps Big 12 Losing Streak; Fans Toss Goalpost Into Lake

The Kansas Jayhawks had lost 27 straight conference games before beating West Virginia 31-19 yesterday. After the win, fans took down a goalpost and chucked it into a lake.

Mike Leach Once Called The Big 12 Commish In The Middle Of A Game To…

The year was 2007. It was a simpler time. Dan Beebe was in his first season as Big 12 Commissioner, and Mike Leach was still at Texas Tech, probably not even having met redshirt freshman Adam James. But he was already a crazy person. » 11/13/13 2:37pm 11/13/13 2:37pm

The Big Ten Is On The Move: Updating Our Conference Realignment Maps!

When we last checked in a month ago, it seemed the dust was finally settling after a period of bizarre college football reafuckinglignment. Pretty much everyone had made major moves except the Big Ten, a distinctly Midwestern conference that seemed happy to pretty much stay put. » 11/28/12 12:45pm 11/28/12 12:45pm

Reports: The Big Ten Wants Maryland And Rutgers

Pat Forde and ESPN are reporting that serious talks are afoot to fold Maryland and Rutgers into the Big Ten. Not only would that create a 14-member conference that'd surely be the biggest Ten in the world, it would reopen the scabby wound of major conference realignment. The ACC, the Terps' current home, would be… » 11/17/12 6:58pm 11/17/12 6:58pm

Kyle Field got some interesting additions in the offseason. Maybe you thought that Texas A&M only had one national title, because they do. But the Aggies decided to add two more, and two conference championships on top of that. How'd they do it? A little creative accounting. » 9/26/12 1:20pm 9/26/12 1:20pm

The Big 12 Is Like West Virginia's Wealthy Uncle

West Virginia was all "Fuck you, Big East," and the Big East kept saying, "Not so fast, young man," but now WVU has agreed to pay $20 million to the Big East to be able to leave in time for football season, with the Big 12 agreeing to cover half of that in the form of a loan, part of which will be forgiven.

More Proof That West Virginia Doesn't Give A Shit About Leaving The Big…

It's true that WVU had filed suit first, arguing that the Big East is no longer really the Big East, which is why the school plans to join the Big 12 as soon as next year. Taken together, those moves were seen as a middle finger to the Big East's mandatory 27-month grace period for exiting. But now, to judge by this… » 11/23/11 5:40pm 11/23/11 5:40pm
