David Beaty hopes that high school seniors will take advantage of the early December signing period.

I never heard David Beaty promise a bowl game in 2017, but this guy did. (He probably needs to keep his day job and lay off the sauce.)

I did not know that Kansas was one of 12 teams last season to average less than 5 yards per play offensively.

Beaty also says that while the attention Dorance Armstrong is getting from around the league is warranted, people may be overlooking fellow DL Daniel Wise.

Beaty’s mission from Day 1 was to demand the best out of his players, but also let them know that they will have fun and that the coaches value not just their contributions, but as individual persons.

Bobby Nightengale at the LJW put together a quick notebook from around the Big 12; apparently Mike Gundy’s mullet was a pretty big news item.

Malik Hall out of Wichita is a top-100 player in the class of 2019 and has received an offer from Bill Self and Kansas. Other offers include OU, Ok St, Michigan St, Illinois, and Missouri.

Oklahoma State’s punter has launched his own social media Heisman campaign.

The Big 12 expects to extend Bob Bowlsby’s contract through 2025.

In “I hate you please go away” news, Missouri has seen freshman enrollment dip over 35 percent over the last two years, forcing budget cuts and residence hall closures.

Mario Chalmers has signed a one-year deal with the Grizzlies.

The USA should beat El Salvador in anything they ever play, but, we’ll see.

Here’s a look at the ultimate sports related gender-reveal fails of the summer.
