•The Big XII is starting to catch up to the Ivy League. From a story:
As part of its annual media days, the Big 12 announced Monday a new rule limiting full contact days during football season. The 10 members teams are now permitted two days of full, helmet-to-helmet contact per week – and that includes game day. This leaves teams with two days of full-padded practice during fall camp and off weeks, and one such day during a game week. The rule goes into effect beginning with fall camp.

As nice as it is to have a video board at a football game, it's even more useful at ice hockey in my opinion.
