Conference Call: Week Six
Oklahoma further solidified itself as one of the conference’s best teams, taking it right at Texas Tech and coasting to a victory. Oklahoma State had questions around it but seems to be among the best as well, as the Cowboys beat a good Kansas State team by 13 points, although it felt like far more than 13. TCU put on a very impressive offensive performance, while Baylor and Iowa State fought it out until the final seconds.

Big 12 Teleconference: Three things Les Miles said on Monday
We ran into a very quality football team [down] in Texas, TCU. Gary Patterson has been there for a number of years and is doing a great job.

So I recognize that we're playing another really quality football team, very talented, very capable, great quarterback — and Lincoln Riley in his third year at a great, traditionally-rich school. It's going to be a great to for us. Again, we look forward to it

This is a short-term issue, it may be painful in the short term, but the long term, I don’t think there’s any real concern

Ward, who supports California’s law, said the NCAA’s policies prohibit athletes from earning a wage that is fair compared to the amount of profit universities make off of their labor. He said the policies also have an equity issue because coaches can have endorsement contracts with companies while athletes cannot.

California to let college athletes make money, defying NCAA |
