Ten questions about Big 12 football: Who's Texas' quarterback? Is Tommy Tuberville feeling the pressure?

Big 12 Media Days begin Monday in Dallas. In honor of the true number of Big 12 teams, here are 10 questions we'll try to answer from the two-day football festival.

7. How is married life going for Landry Jones? Bob Stoops never has had a married quarterback. I can't remember the last married OU quarterback. OU stat king Mike Brooks said the last married Sooner QB he can find is Monte Deere in 1962. But Landry married Whitney Hand a few weeks ago in the closest thing we'll have to a royal wedding.

8. Which private school will be more excited about its new stadium, TCU or Baylor? The Frogs' glittering Amon G. Carter Stadium remake opens Sept. 8. Baylor just voted to build a $250 million stadium to open in 2014.

9. Is Bill Snyder showing any signs of aging? At some point, Kansas State's miracle man will have to stop performing amazing football feats, like the Wildcats winning 10 games in 2011, five of them by four points or less.

10. Will Bob Bowlsby bite on the expansion question? Everything from the coming playoff format to the new television contracts points to the Big 12 staying at 10 schools. Does the new commissioner agree?
