Today starts the Big 12 Media Days. You’ll be able to check out the schedule below. For most of you, you only care about Texas Tech and head coach Kliff Kingsbury, where they are slated to be on the main stage at 11:15 this morning.

Additionally, you’ll be able to watch on the FOX Sports GO app. Coverage starts at 9:00 a.m. and goes to 1:00 p.m. CST both days. Additional details can be found at the link above.

• The Big 12 Media Days official page has lots of information and will eventually have links to quotes from the coaches.
• The official Texas Tech site has a “how to follow” post which essentially says to follow the Texas Tech Football Twitter handle and search for the hashtag #wreckem or #big12FB. I really thought that the roster would have dropped yesterday, it usually does drop right before the Big 12 Media Days, but maybe it doesn’t get released until after August 3rd, which is the official report day. And I have gone ahead and re-typed the roster in an excel spreadsheet so that I can do a weight-gain or weight-loss post when the new roster is released.
• Land Grant Gauntlet’s Brady Trantham takes a look at what to watch for the Big 12 Media Days this year, including any controversy over Kliff Kingsbury’s watch, which I had totally forgotten about.

• NewsOK’s Berry Tramel asks 10 questions in preparation of Big 12 Media Days, including asking if Kingsbury is willing to let things be bygones with Baker Mayfield. I have news for Tramel, which is that Texas Tech and Kingsbury haven’t let it be an issue in a long time, but Mayfield on the other hand . . .
