It's no secret that college football news can be a little slow this time of the year. I'll try and fill the gap with some off the cuff ideas to help fill the void over the next month or two. Today, season ticket promotional videos.
Not all the Big 12 schools have released their videos yet (or won't), but the five that had are worth a watch. My personal favorite? That would be Baylor, although all five of them do the trick. If only you could be at more than one place at a time.
Baylor football has come back from the dead under Art Briles and there is now plenty to sell when it comes to football in Waco including a new stadium which could be ready for play as early as the 2014 season.
How's this for stirring up some emotion? What's that number again?
Kansas doesn't have the same recent success to build on that Baylor does, but there's plenty to look forward to in Lawrence with the intrigue surrounding Charlie Weis and his return to college head coaching.
Kansas State Wildcats
Kansas State has been building their season ticket promotions around Bill Snyder's 16 Goals of Success and apparently it's worked as KSU has sold out its season tickets for 2012. Last year's 10 win seaoson probably didn't hurt, either.
West Virginia Mountaineers
How about Big 12 newcomer West Virgina? There's plenty to be excited about these days in Morgantown. The video pretty much speaks for itself. Well done, Mountaineers.
Texas Tech Red Raiders
Texas Tech put together a cool concept with some words from long time season tickets holders.
That's it for the videos, but here's a quick look at what's happening with the other five schools in the Big 12:
TCU hoping the move to the Big 12 will result in 30,000 season tickets. They set a record last year with 22,000.
I'm guessing Oklahoma doesn't need a promotional video because their tickets are sold out, as usual. I'm not sure if Texas' season tickets are sold out because they're still taking orders, but if not, I'm guessing they will be soon.
