Big 12 Media Days Are Here: Here’s a Primer for Oklahoma Fans

A million questions will be asked this week in Arlington, some of which will be football-related. This primer will help you sort through the noise and get to what’s important.

We’re still six weeks from actual football, but Big 12 Media Days opens what coaches now call “talking season” none too soon.

The Big 12 — with 14 teams this time — kicks off conference media days on Wednesday and Thursday at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX, and of the myriad topics broached by the press this week, some may actually have to do with the 2023 football season.

The configuration for this week’s event was initially going to deviate from the norm. The original plan was to have representatives of all 14 institutions on site for both days. But coaches are busy this time of year either self-scouting, recruiting or squeezing in one last respite with the family, and so time is precious. So this year’s format is the same as usual: half the teams on one day, the other half on the next.
