Should the Horns Down taunt be an unsportsmanlike penalty? Big 12 official: ‘It depends’ hookem.com/2019/07/16/hor…
Asked specifically about the Will Grier play, where he hit the Texas student section with the Horns Down, Burks says that should be an unsportsmanlike penalty.
Greg Burks, head of Big 12 officiating, on Horns Down: “My advice is, if you want to do that, do it back in your bench area. Get away from where you’re an individual drawing attention to yourself.”
Morning all. Texas players planned on working out this morning before flying to Arlington. Herman's presser is set for 12:25 p.m. from AT&T Stadium at Big 12 media days.

Bowlsby says it sends a bad message with the perception that the transfer portal is an escape if an athlete “had a bad practice or a bad week of practice.”
Bob Bowlsby on Big 12 realignment: "We have no discuss of expansion at any level."

Bowlsby wants to stress that 6 of the 7 league’s bowl teams held their opponent under their season offensive averages. “Contrary to popular belief, there are some kids who tackle in the Big 12.”
Bowlsby says the new Big 12 channel on ESPN+ will be called "Big 12 Now." It's basically a network for the 8 schools who aren't on Longhorn Network or Fox SW (OU).

Bowlsby on the future of TV sports watching: "Anybody that tells you they know what the future looks like 3 years from now, 5 years now is delusional because the technology is rapidly changing."
Bowlsby outlines the third-tier TV rights for the 10 league schools. Says it ranges from “$1 million to about $15-20 million at the University of Texas.”

I do like Iowa State at No. 3 in the Big 12 preseason poll. Matt Campbell’s club will give everyone fits this fall.
Oklahoma was picked to win the Big 12 this season while Texas was No. 2, per the league media vote. Until something changes, that’s how it should be.
Those UTIMCO fund managers should take a bow today, too. Instead of rolling $160 million worth of T-bills, it was rolled into Texas’ future. Well done.
Texas QB Sam Ehlinger is the preseason Big 12 Offensive POTY. C Zach Shackelford, S Caden Sterns and K Cameron Dicker also make the preseason All-Big 12 team announced today.

Texas' Christian Sigsgaard, a senior next season, is scorching hot right now. He wins the men's singles and doubles titles at the Denmark Championships. This after leading Horns to NCAA natty.
