Big 12 Media Days - Day One

The Big 12 got together at the Omni in Dallas on Monday for day one of their media extravaganza. Let's find out who said it and what was said.

Charlie Weis made his last appearance at Media Days and no he isn't retiring. Kansas should have sent someone else to talk about KU football. Maybe the Jayhawk mascot.  

It's an odd approach to call your team a "pile of crap" no one is going to run through that brick wall for you Charlie.  

Kliff Kingsbury was dreamy as expected.  

Serious question - How does he get the perpetual 5 o'clock shadow to look so perfect?  

The spread was discussed early and often. Everyone who runs the spread said it was safe. And why wouldn't they, are they going to admit that their putting players in harms way by running more plays.  

Can someone get Gary Patterson a throat lozenge?

While we're at it some coaches look weird in a suit. Gary Patterson is one such coach. Get that guy a visor and a headset.  

You could even ask questions through the headset. How awesome would that be? I'll answer that - very.  

Mike Gundy didn't dance or yell at reporters. What's the deal Mike, you gotta play the hits.  

The assembled media picked Casey Pachall as pre-season all-Big 12 quarterback. That became iffy when Patterson announced that his team hasn't named a starter yet.  

Coach Snyder was able to hold his press conference, be done by 11:00 a.m. just in time for the luanne platter and bed time.

We'll leave you with a couple more Charlie Weis quotes. Prepare to be inspired.  

When you go through a transition coming in and you dismiss 29 scholarship players, which I did for a variety of off-the-field issues—not one of those players did I get rid of because they weren’t any good. You can’t do it for that reason. So now I took a team that already wasn’t very good, and I made them worse talent-wise. So that led to we need to fill the holes right now.

Have you looked at that pile of crap out there? Have you taken a look at that? So if you don’t think you can play here, where do you think you can play? It’s a pretty simple approach.
