So, we thought we might snag a few blue chips late but they went elsewhere.

Wanted to toss up a round up of what’s being said around and open up the floor to the airing of grievances and dawn is darkest proclamations.

Sundry...

The new boss in his own words (including some on the Baylor guy). Dude has his own plan and it sounds fine to me.

The SEC blew away the field on Signing Day 2017. The Big 12 did not.

The Big 12 clocks in last among the power conferences, and the American keeps distinguishing itself as the best among everyone else. The SEC’s still the king.

We’ve talked about this. A strong Texas will be fine but this conference may not even a dumpster fire anymore as everything worth burning seems to have been burnt.

What do you all think?
