Big 12 media days: Let's get started, y'all

DALLAS -- This morning marks the unofficial start of football season. Unofficial in the strictest sense of the word, of course. But now is not a time for debate.

You know it's a whole new world in the Big 12 when a man in a coonskin cap is milling around the lobby of media days. Haven't seen any Frogs yet. My guess is we will soon.

Preseason camps open across the Big 12 during the first week of August, but today, half of the Big 12's coaches will bring a caravan of 3-4 players to meet the league's media. The other half will follow on Tuesday.

I'll be here to cover it all. Keep it right here for coverage throughout the week. We'll have columns, videos, notes and plenty more as the league's teams come and go.

Want to know what to expect? Here's our comprehensive Big 12 Media Days preview.

Want to follow along with us? The Big 12's website will offer a live online stream and coverage. Here's where you can find it.

You can also see coverage on WatchESPN on your phone, iPad or computer.

Commissioner Bob Bowlsby will get the party started with a statement and a Q&A session from the podium at 10 a.m. ET.

It should be plenty of fun. The coaches will take the podium at 11 a.m. ET.

Here's the full schedule for Monday. Players who will meet with the print media later in the day are listed in parentheses, and all times are ET:

Keep it right here for coverage throughout the week. We'll have tons.
