About a year ago, most of the CFB world tuned in to see Baylor interim head coach Jim Grobe take his turn at Big 12 Media Days after one of the more tumultuous offseasons in the history of the sport. In less than an hour, new head coach Matt Rhule will ascend the dais for the first time. We’ll track the action here in the comments and, if I can find a stream, watch it together.
UPDATE: Apparently you can watch on the Fox Sports Go app, if that’s available to you.
ALSO: See below.
We'll air @CoachMattRhule live at 11:15 on @1660ESPN and https://t.co/qaot9zexpz. https://t.co/QhIFpmVxVh— Craig Smoak (@CraigSmoak) July 18, 2017
A few other tweets from the morning:

@CoachMattRhule told us last night Ish has gone from 235 pounds to 260. "Apparently running up and down the court keeps your weight down." https://t.co/xgmL4AQxRs— Matt Mosley (@mattmosley) July 18, 2017

It’ll be interesting to see how the reporters handle the Q&A section of the event today with Rhule. Do they focus entirely on the scandal and Rhule’s reaction/how Baylor is moving forward, or do we get something about how the team actually looks going into this year? We won’t know until we get there, but we can be reasonably sure of one thing: Rhule is going to represent us well.
