Dancing in the Ruins: Charlie Weis lays down the law, Dana Hologorsen returns, Larry Brown and more.

 (Dancing in the Ruins is SWRT's look at the Big XII Conference. Or at least what's left of it.)

Oh yes my clown, you're new in town?

Wish List. 
Texas Tech HC Tommy Tuberville thinks that the Big 12 should add two more members so the conference can get back to actually having 12 members, and the conference championship game that goes with it. (The Fort Worth Star-Telegram)

On the playoff bandwagon.

Include us out.

Laying down the law.
Kansas HC Charlie Weis dismisses  Jayhawk linebacker Collin Garrett and defensive back Chris Robinson after the two were arrested for "battery and interference with duties of an officer." Ohhh, Fulmer Cup points. (The Lawrence Journal World. HT : Rock Chalk Talk)

A Sort of Homecoming.

This is for the questions that don't have any answers.

Shontrelle Johnson's future still undecided. 
Iowa State will have to wait until July to find out whether or not tailback Shontrelle Johnson will be cleared to play in 2012. Johnson's 2011 season was cut short by a neck injury in the game against Texas on Oct. 1, 2011. (The Des Moines Register)

We're working harder to be #2.
