Wichita Eagle’s Kellis Robinett has your Big 12 report to get you caught up on all things Big 12 basketball and Baylor is establishing themselves as the #1 team in the nation, and rightfully so.
CJ Online’s Kevin Haskin tracks Chris Beard’s start to coaching, which began at a junior college in Kansas:
Everywhere Chris Beard goes, a Kansas keepsake occupies a prominent spot in his basketball office.
“I’ve got a picture of Fort Scott,’’ said the Texas Tech coach. “It’s an aerial view, it’s framed and I have it on my desk. I’ve had it at every job.’’
Beard’s first season as a head coach was spent with the Greyhounds in the Jayhawk Community College Conference, a 19-12 finish in 1999-00.
Here is Patrick Mahomes’ accuracy (catchable ball) chart for 2016, minus the SFA game. Very impressive, though inflated due to screens. pic.twitter.com/I7r1H18mDq

Also, DraftBreakdown’s Nicholas McGee writes that the thinks that Patrick Mahomes is the most talented quarterback in the 2017 NFL Draft:
There is no doubt that Mahomes is raw, having played exclusively out of the shotgun in Texas Tech’s air raid offense, however, he has the physical tools to succeed as an NFL quarterback and – even at the tender age of 21 – has displayed tendencies that suggest his transition from college to the pros will not take as long as perhaps would be anticipated.
There’s lots of video breakdown there, so make sure and check it out.
As an aside, is there any other player that is going to get drafted or has the chance to get drafted?
