I'm looking forward to the Big 12's debut this bowl season tonight, beginning at 9:15 central, in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl.  We'll probably see a few of our guys on the telecast at some point or another.  They'll be there as the guests of Kansas State, along with the coaching staff, their families, and whoever else traveled with the team.

Missed any bowl action so far?  Check out SB Nation's comprehensive review of everything that has happened to date.

In other news, the press conference for Baylor's defense is occurring RIGHT NOW.  Let's take a look:

Sweet.  I've never done that before.

OTHER TWEETS TWEETS TWEETS TWEETS TWEETS:

Couple of interesting tweets from David Smoak...

The idea that Patterson was "protecting his player" by taking personal shots at Ahmad and referencing legal situations he knew nothing about in the context of criticizing Briles' handling of disciplinary matters and the larger program is absurd. Either Patterson has the shortest fuse ever and should be ashamed of himself as an adult or Bennett is covering for him. This sequence of events is facially implausible.

BUT LET'S HEAR ALL ABOUT BAYLOR, RIGHT?

Now I'm pissed. Let's watch some football.
