Big 12 Coaches Hope Focus Turns to Games on Field

Tommy Tuberville and the rest of the Big 12 football coaches can finally focus on games after another uncertain offseason for the league.

With Texas A&M expected to leave the Big 12, Tuberville knows there will be plenty of speculation about what is going to happen only a year after the league lost Nebraska and Colorado.

But the second-year Texas Tech coach is hopeful the season can be about the teams that are playing -- and not about conference affiliation, NCAA infractions or other off-field issues.

All 10 league teams open the season this weekend.

Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops understands everyone else following the outside stuff, but says his top-ranked Sooners are only looking at Saturday's opener against Tulsa.
