original-double-t For once, the Big 12 has done something right.

original-double-t If you want to check out the official site’s notes and the depth chart (which is hardly ever updated) here you go.

original-double-tLAJ’s Nicholas Talbot has a notebook of things, including head coach Kliff Kingsbury not considering pulling QB Patrick Mahomes out of the game, Keke Coutee is receiving more playing time and is getting better including returning a punt against Kansas State and as far as injuries are concerned, S Keenon Ward is day-to-day as is WR Derrick Willies.

original-double-tLAJ’s Don Williams writes about RB DeMarcus Felton finding his way onto the field more so than with Justin Stockton, and Felton receiving the nickname “The Invisible Man” for how he gets lost in the line of scrimmage. Felton talked about how he’s become the runner that he is:

After Dekaney won a state championship in 2011, the team’s fortunes sagged, but Felton flourished under coach Anthony Williams, rushing for 1,916 yards and 20 touchdowns in 2012 and for 1,783 yards and 11 TDs in 2013.

Felton said Williams added another piece to his puzzle.

“He taught me how to run with a chip on my shoulder,” Felton said. Taking stock of his stature, Felton said Williams told him opponents are “going to think you’re not really coming with anything, so you run with a chip on your shoulder and let people know you are somebody that people need to watch for.”
