    Media Days Player Reps

    Jake Knott, Kelechi Osemele, and..... Darius Darks? Jake Knott is Jake Knott, KO is the toast of the OL, but I was a little surprised to see Darks on the list. I know he's a captain, but in all of the conversation about what to expect or hope for out of the WR position this year, nobody seems to be talking about Darks. What do you guys make of it? Is there anybody else who you might put there instead?

    I was very surprised to hear that Darks was a media day speaker too. However Darks is very reliable. He rarely makes mistakes such as dropping the ball or fumbling. He's not flashy but he is very reliable.

    Plus, Darks is good with the media.

    Re: Media Days Player Reps

    Paul Rhoads has said time and time again that Darks in the leader at WR. The other players respect him and the advice that he gives. I don't think he is our best receiver, but being a leader isn't about being the most talented.

    Re: Media Days Player Reps

    I was thinking CPR would bring LJ as that would be the 3 preseason All-Big 12 selections.

    That's true. He's kind of a "blue collar teammate" on what Rhoads has called a blue collar team.
