Classy move by Big 12 coaches

Video here of Big 12 coaches welcoming TCU and West Virginia to the conference.

Simple and classy.

Holgo favors mini-scrimmages

When it comes down to scrimmaging for an hour and a half or practicing game like situations broken into different periods and situations, Dana Holgorsen will choose the latter.

"A lot has been made of the fact we don't like scrimmaging. All I said was, I don't like to put the ball down in a practice situation and scrimmage for an hour and a half."

Holgorsen explains that they've taken a different approach in an effort to increase focus and awareness of the players, which makes a ton of sense.

"What we've done is, we've broken up a couple of different scrimmages into a lot of different mini scrimmages, which I think gives our kids a little bit higher focus as far as what the actual situation is."

"These kids like to play football. They like to put the ball down and play. So I think our job as coaches is to develop a bunch of situations, especially with a lot of young guys, of being aware of what their situations are and going out there and having experience in those situations in order to be successful."

Inside look at Western Michigan camp from a players perspective

Follow Bronco defensive lineman Travonte Boles through a morning of camp. Looks like a lot is accomplished in Kalamazoo before 10am.

Couple interesting things that we noticed. Early on, when Boles entered the locker room, the coaching staff has stats posted on the bulletin board from yesterday's one on one drills so that players can check their progress.

Also, the defensive lineman's lockers are all grouped together with a whiteboard on the wall for easy access during halftime adjustments.
