FRISCO, Texas (AP) - Kansas running back Khalil Herbert still isn't comfortable talking publicly about his connection to the Florida school shooting five months after it happened. Herbert attended Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School through his junior year before going elsewhere for his final football season. Despite the move, Herbert remained to with one of his coaches. Aaron Feis was a security specialist who tried to shield students from bullets and was among the 17 killed in the Valentine's Day massacre.
ATLANTA (AP) - Southeastern Conference Commissioner Greg Sankey says the Supreme Court ruling on sports gambling could cause the league to require schools to release reports that list the status of injured or ineligible players. He added that the SEC is still studying how it will adapt to the change, but it's unlikely such reports will be mandated in 2018.
FRISCO, Texas (AP) - Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby has plenty of reasons to feel bullish about his league. He never bought into the negative perceptions some had about the smallest of the Power Five conferences. Revenue keeps growing for the Big 12's 10 schools. Oklahoma has been to the College Football Playoff twice in the last three years. The Big 12 is the only league in the last year to have teams in the CFP, men's Final Four, College World Series and Women's World Series.
ATLANTA (AP) - LSU coach Ed Orgeron is looking for a starting quarterback. He has kept open the option of allowing the competition to carry into the season.

FRISCO, Texas (AP) - TCU coach Gary Patterson admits to his superstitions for bringing young quarterback Shawn Robinson to Big 12 football media days. Oklahoma didn't even have a quarterback in attendance. Patterson isn't ready to declare Robinson as the starter. But the coach remembers the Frogs having a losing season when he didn't bring a quarterback. Sooners coach Lincoln Riley says first-round MLB draft pick Kyler Murray still has to fight like crazy to succeed Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield.
