    I understand their reasoning but to lose out on elite legacy kids at a premium position sucks.

    That it do. They're all about the NFL and you can't argue with what Bama has done the past decade+

    Not at all, interestingly enough Sam Cosmi is projected to be a first rounder and Kerstetter could be taken relatively high as well. Add in Connor Williams in the 2nd a few years back and OL development has been much better under Herman so far. But too little too late when school hasn't developed a 1st round offensive lineman in 18 years...

    CB Boyce stepping away from football. Good luck to the young man. Glad to hear he will continue on as a student.

    Yeah, development is the problem far and away, with Herman and Blake's personalities probably not helping either. Getting Cosmi drafted in the first and Kerstetter drafted anywhere goes a long way to starting to erase the narrative that we can't get OL into the league. But it absolutely sucks to miss on them.

    Apparently the PAC 10 is finalizing a conference only season so guessing that would scratch a full 12 game schedule. With the Big 10 already announced, that'd make it 5 OOC games that won't happen for the Big 12.

    If it’s 9 + 1, it’ll be interesting to see which OOC game they’d choose if they get to. I’m sure they’d love redemption at LSU but wonder if they’d elect to South Florida week 1 or UTEP week 3 to get an extra home game since it would only be 4 home games if they proceed with 9+1.

    So, what are the odds that this renovation will be completely finished before any of us ever step food in DKR again?

    %100 for me. I'm not going to be going to any games this year if they are open to the public.

    Haven't been to a game in years but wearing a mask (presuming it will be required) at 3:00 p.m. in September in DKR does not sound enjoyable.

    Really wanted another shot at LSU but oh well. Guessing the only question is whether the Big 12 can get 9 ooc games scheduled for a 9 + 1 format.

    Some internet fodder that BYU could join for a year like ND/ACC which would scare me to death knowing Taysom Hill would be remotely close to DKR.

    Big 12 is voting tonight on scheduling format per 247. Apparently 9 + 1 ooc game is favorite and conference championship game will be pushed back in case games need to be rescheduled.

    Will likely play UTEP before starting conference play against K-State, OU and then WV.
