Extra! Extra! Big 12 Link Dump - August 9... and a Hella Fast 9.84 Seconds

We haven't had a good, solid Link Dump in a while, so now that classes are starting to begin, we thought it was about time to resurrect the weekly tradition.

Normally the Link Dump happens on a Friday afternoon, but since I was motivated this past weekend, here is a Monday afternoon edition. since it's been a while, some of the stories may be from earlier in the summer, but fun to read none-the-less.

So let's dive into the top stories from each of the Big 12 school's local papers. We also add a few non-Big 12 links and a YouTube clip for the hell of it.
