Wasted Optimism

We are back…. well, "back"

Big 12 Media Days 2010: Monday Recap, OSU at 9:45

Big 12 Media Days 2010

So the 2010 version of Big 12 Media Days started with an angry Bo Pelini. The first thing out of the Nebraska coach’s mouth was “No Big 10 talk” Ok Bo. Great to see you too!

After that, he didn’t really say much. The usual “We could be good”, etc. was all we really got. But you can sense that there is a lot of optimism in the Husker Nation.I even heard things like “Big 12 Champs” “Blackshirts” “National Champs” — yes, it’s getting crazy in Lincoln.

Bottomline Huskers — You lost an All American defender that was triple covered most of the time and your offense stinks. Iowa State beat you at home. You’re a long way from the good times of the 80’s and 90’s.

After Pelini, we saw Baylor, Iowa State and Texas A&M. You can read the real time coverage at our Twitter site here  It’s a real hoot!

A few interesting bits from Art Briles, Paul Rhoads and Mike Sherman

  • Baylor will be “Fresh, Fast and Fearless”
  • Robert Griffin is healthy
  • Iowa State has the #1 Grad rate in the Big 12 (He really pointed this out)
  • Iowa State has the toughest schedule in the country (reported here first)
  • Texas A&M is ready to take the place of Nebraska!?!?!
  • Mike Sherman is crazy..In a real “Texas Calm” way

Up this  morning at about 9:00 CT  is Missouri, Oklahoma State, Kansas State and Texas Tech.

We’re going to do things a little differently today by keeping some of  the reaction here on the site in the comments section.  Hopefully that will mean a good conversation with our 3 fans.

I’m looking forward to hearing what Coach Gundy has to say. Snyder, Pinkel and Tuberville should be good too.

The live video can be found here See you in a couple of  hours..

    Getting started a little late here. Gundy up in 20. Pinkel is currently putting everyone to sleep.

  2. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Everyone avoiding conference re-alignment and Big 12 title game questions.

  3. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Pinkel gave us absolutely zero information.

    “Coach… how do you feel about your secondary?”

    “We are happy with it”

  4. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Here come the Pokes! Gray goatee is fired up about seeing Gundy.

  5. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Gundy is wearing a smart looking dark gray suit with orange tie and an orange handkerchief in the pocket.

  6. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Gundy just made a great point. To summarize: “All out o-linemen are new, but that worked to our benefit since we are implementing a new system”

  7. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    His gel-spike is probably a half inch taller than last year. May need to run some video forensics on this to verify that.

  8. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Gundy is great at complimenting a guy, then talking about his shortcomings.

    paraphrasing: “I love Brandon, love his mobility, love his age… but he hasnt proven shit yet, we will see what happens”

  9. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    And hes done. These are running super short today. Gundy was on for maybe 8 minutes.

  10. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    My least favorite stat of the day: “Oklahoma State will have to replace their top 8 tacklers from last season.”

  11. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Orie Lemon coming on in a few. Hopefully he uses the N-word as much as he does on twitter.

  12. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Update: Orie says he is 100% healthy. Then my video froze.

  13. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    If anyone caught the 2nd half of the Lemon interview, let us know if anything interesting was said.
    I counted zero n-words in the first 5 minutes, but it was like a pitcher who is 5 innings into a no-hitter, I didn’t want to say anything and jinx it. So did he continue his perfection throughout the whole interview?

  14. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Gray goatee seems frazzled. I feel like my feed froze right when something great happened.

  15. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Some nerdy looking dude whose name I didnt catch is currently breaking down how the different networks claim Big XII games to air. Pretty interesting.

  16. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Not sure if it is my network, the website, or the nerdy looking TV scheduling guys sensible blue shirt, khaki pants ensemble, but this feed is really choppy right now.

  17. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Gray goatee host has made a few jokes equating one party being more in charge of something than the other party to a marriage. Hope his wife is watching.

  18. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Pinstripe bowl? Apparently the Big 12 is tied in with this bowl in yankee stadium now. Not sure which “seed” goes.

  19. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    checked. 7th place Big 12 team versus the 4th place Big East team

  20. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    I guess it is replacing the Independence Bowl? Poor Shreveport.

  21. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Snyder coming up.

  22. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Another one to add to my list of things I am going to miss about the current Big XII: Making fun of teams winning the North by going 5-3 or 4-4 in conference and 0-3 versus the south.

  23. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    As always, Bill Snyder looks like the nicest guy in the world. It makes it hard to make fun of him for offering everyone Werther’s Originals.

  24. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    I think Snyder and Weeden went to High School together.

  25. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    uninteresting questions so far… one about Snyders knee, now about how they are keeping kids away from agents.

  26. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Trammel just got a chuckle out of snyder by giving him shit about his desire for a championship game

  27. rickytornado
    July 27, 2010

    So there is an outside chance we’ll get to see Yankee stadium this year?

  28. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Talking rule changes with some dude.

    New rule in 2011 clamping down on celebrations. Too bad for Ricky and his patented “spin the ball and air hump over it” celebration.

  29. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Director of the Davey O’Brien award on now. Will there be a Weeden mention?

  30. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Tech coming up. Will Tubs be insane? Come on Tubs… liven this bitch up a little. You know it has been uneventful when Bill Snyder has been the most exciting interview.

  31. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    OH… and also the nerdy guy that described how networks get priority to air games… that guy ripped it up.

  32. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Tuberville looks fired up. Little bit of pep to him.

  33. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Tubs started with a semi-prepared monologue.

  34. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Tubs still wants to pass 65% of the time. And doesnt want to rotate qbs

  35. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Right after I typed that, Tubs said he wants to run it a lot to take pressure off the QB. Is there a code behind what he is saying that I am not picking up on?

  36. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Someone please ask him about the shed

  37. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    I will say that Tubs can talk. Him and Austin Arnaud need to team up as a sales team.

  38. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Final coaches grades for Day 2 of Big XII media days.
    Pinkel D-
    Gundy D
    Snyder C+
    Tuberville B+

  39. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    Potts is on now. Newly engaged and looking sharp.

  40. Samuel Bryant
    July 27, 2010

    I think that is it for me here. I dont think we could have picked a less exciting event to cover live like this …next time we may have to cover Cincy’s filing duties at work.

  41. JJ
    July 27, 2010

    Potts looked like shotgun Sam most of last year. I guess thats not the look Tubbs is going for with the fightin tortillas.

  42. CincyJoe
    July 27, 2010

    The lack of solid questions from the news media is inexcusable. If there is not a QB controversy in Lubbock and/or if they are not going to use 2 QB’s, why did you bring both to Media Day?

  43. Mike
    July 27, 2010

    Thanks to the Big 12 for providing a piss poor video feed that let viewers catch ten seconds of dialogue then five seconds of frozen video, repeat fifty times, and then a complete freeze altogether.

    Did the conference switch to 56k modems in an effort to cut costs so that they could afford the bribe they are paying the University of Texas?
