If you need proof, look no further than the lineup for Big 12 Media Days, which take place July 21-22 in Dallas.
Gone are big names like Brandon Weeden, Justin Blackmon and Justin Gilbert.
Instead, receiver Jhajaun Seales, cornerback Kevin Peterson and linebacker Ryan Simmons will represent Oklahoma State. OSU will be part of the June 21 session.
All three are proven players, but all three are also hoping to break out into stardom in 2014.
For the third consecutive year, the Cowboys will not bring a quarterback. In league once dominated by the likes of Colt McCoy, Sam Bradford and Graham Harrell, that’s suddenly not an outlier.
Baylor’s Bryce Petty, OU’s Trevor Knight and Kansas State’s Jake Waters are the only quarterbacks who will be in attendance. Last year, David Ash of Texas and Jake Heaps of Kansas were the only quarterbacks.
Fox Sports regional networks will televise the event with live coverage and analysis, and the Big 12 Digital Network will also provide a live stream.
Here’s the complete lineup of players as the Big 12 announced Friday:
Baylor: Quarterback Bryce Petty, wide receiver Antwan Goodley, linebacker Bryce Hager, defensive end Shawn Oakman.
