Crib Sheet: Here We Go Again On Our Own, Maybe

Once we thought we were safe, but anybody who knew their history and knew about the psyche of Missouri understood it was not over.  And with that, Missouri last night gave chancellor Brady Deaton the power to pursue other conferences.  They could be like Oklahoma and stay or they could be like Texas A&M and go.  Time will tell.  Although, they were first on the block last year so I’m pretty sure they are out the door.  Nevermind the fact that Tier 1 and Tier 2 rights are officially equal in the Big 12, provided everyone commits to the league.  Yup, so expect some announcements early next week about conference affiliation so they don’t bother with the actual games being played on the field.  In the meantime, check out this week’s Crib Sheet:

Crib Sheet: Winds Of Change (Pocket) Blowing In Miami

This week’s drama is Miami and the Ponzi schemed Nevin Shapiro who was making it rain all over the place.  Among the accused, two new Alabama assistant coaches, a former Husker,  newly minted K-Stater’s Bryce and Arthur Brown, Missouri head basketball coach Frank Haith, and 15 current Miami players.  This summer has been brutal for college football on the public relations side.  It’s been all about the money and breaking the rules.  It’s like NASCAR.  Or worse yet, baseball.  Winds of change will be blowing real quick.  Maybe it means the players will finally get paid.  On to the Crib Sheet: Continue reading Crib Sheet: Winds Of Change (Pocket) Blowing In Miami

Crib Sheet: A Hundred and Ten in the Shady Offseason

While I’m battling record heat here in my first summer in Austin, it seems college football is battling an offseason of corruption.  At least that’s what it seems like.  I think it’s more that the year before we all thought conferences (including the Big 12) were gonna blow up.  Now everything is safe, things are going back to normal.  That includes kids and coaches breaking rules.  Let’s break on over to this week’s Crib Sheet and find out some more:

Crib Sheet: The Road to Austin Bekons

It’s a tasty Crib Sheet this week as I’m packed up and ready to head to Austin for SXSW.  I might stop by Daryl K Royal Stadium and give homage to the team that Kansas State has owned the last couple of years.  That is if I can make it there between the haze of tech and music.  The next Crib Sheet might be heavily abbrieviated.  Just sayin.  Here’s this week’s Crib  Sheet:
