Plenty of blowouts on the slate this weekend for Big 12 teams, but a few games are worth a watch, especially those in Lubbock and Austin.

+Kris Hughes has anyone every mentioned dissatisfaction with your page load time. 

I'd love to read the articles, but I don't even bother, because the load time is so long.  If I'm really interested, I will wait it out, but it's irritating.

Just I thought I'd mention my experience of your site.  Rant seems to have social media marketing scheme.  Very good marketing model I'd like to see replicated in other industries.

Pacing, pacing, pacing. Texas must establish the pace early to get the notorious BYU crowd out of it, and be only the 6th team in the last 46 tries to escape from Provo with a win. #hookem   #texaslonghorns   #texasfootball

Apparently replacing one inept coordinator, with another equally inept coordinator makes sense on the Forty Acres. #specialmath   #hookem   #texaslonghorns   #texasfootball

The Pistol-based "Diamond Formation" provides Major Applewhite with an intriguing option, a way to force the hand of opposing defensive coordinators due to the variety of talent on the field. #hookem   #texasfootball   #texaslonghorns

True freshmen rarely start at QB for Big 12 programs, much less walk-on true freshmen. Can Baker Mayfield handle the pressure? #wreckem   #gunsup   #texastech
