• The Big 12 has formed a committee to explore expansion

• Mason Rudolph’s stronghold on the No. 2 job in Pittsburgh isn’t looking good

• The Golf Channel has Cowboy Golf pegged in the top-three preseason

As we wait for the Pac-12 to announce expansion decisions – here are some helpful tidbits:

Maybe everything (Pac-12 Commissioner George) Kliavkoff did regarding the three-conference alliance was under the presumption this needed to happen with 14 Pac-12 teams instead of 12. It’s here we should probably introduce the fact that the Big Ten and ACC are both 14-member football leagues. Symmetry and all that.

Also worth adding to the conversation: Kliavkoff told the Mercury News the Pac-12’s initial decision was whether or not to expand, not to determine who to bring in.


Jake Springfield’s flip to the right tackle spot seems like a win

• The PFB squad weighs in on the Alliance, pre-season expectations for the Pokes in this roundtable

• Considering OSU’s depth at running back, a dual-threat quarterback, and what sounds to be optimism around the offensive line, it seems like a ground attack would be the central threat of the Cowboy offense – but Spencer Sanders’ quote below indicates the offense is headed towards more air raid-style antics.

“Mason Rudolph was just slinging it. He was a great thrower. Taylor Cornelius was, too. It’s getting back into those habits. I think it was really probably more on me these past couple seasons, but I think we picked it up quite a bit and I think it’s gonna be a lot like what it used to be.”


OSU is trying these themed events to make gameday more fun – pretty cool ideas making a great thing even better:

Non-OSU Bullets

• This AirBNB at Joshua Tree looks incredible
• Add these towns in the US to your bucket list – Harpers Ferry appears better for a DC trip than Morgantown
• I appreciated this guide on how to pray for Afghanistan (faith-based)
