The best of Day 2 at Big 12 Media Days

By Stephanie Kuzydym Published: July 24, 2012

Briles: Well, to ask that question so calmly about a subject that's so exciting at Baylor, I admire you. That's good. You hid your excitement well. I wish I could hide mine that well.

Media: With the Big 12 adding TCU, does that put programs like yours at any kind of disadvantage when it comes to recruiting the Dallas area in the future? Because now a kid can play Big 12 football without having to even go as far as Waco.

Briles: (with his finger to his mouth) Shhhh. … But it's hard to get those guys to stay home, because when you were 17 1/2 years old, 18 years old, I mean, you were thinking, “Boy, If I could only live next door to mommy and daddy.”


Radio show host to Nick Florence: Nobody's confused you for the Mountaineer man have they?

Florence: No. But I did have to take a picture with him, though.


Worst dressed: Charlie Weis not only wore a navy blue suit with black shoes, but his black shoes were Adidas tennis shoes … untied … with no socks.

Biggest disappointment: The Mountaineer mascot in a T-shirt, shorts and flip-flops. Put those lace-up leather chaps back on and keep entertaining the media, man.
