The embed tool on twitter isn't working for me at this exact moment (I'd love someone to tell me why it works sometimes in Firefox and not others. Every now and then, I'll click on the embed link, the new window will pop up, but the spot for the embed code will just be empty. What's up with that?), so here is a link to the tweet from Baylor Basketball about the Big 12's dates on ESPN's Big Monday being announced today. Baylor and UT tie for second place in total dates with 3 (a school record for Baylor) behind Kansas, who has 4. Texas Tech and TCU are the only schools in the conference that will not be shown at some point, probably because their basketball teams are going to be truly awful. Here's a link to the release from the Big 12,or I can just copy and paste the dates since there aren't that many.

So Baylor gets the bookends in Lawrence and Austin and draws Oklahoma State at home for our troubles. I can live with this.
UPDATE: I meant to include this while I was here and forgot. ESPN's "Summer Shootaround" focused on the Big 12 this morning and talked a bit about Baylor's chances to unseat Kansas.
