  Bob and Elizabeth Dole's long personal and political history The 97-year-old former Senator and World War II veteran, who is taking his diagnosis of stage 4 lung cancer in stride, and his wife, a former Senator and Cabinet member, talk about a career of public service.When asked how he is doing, Dole said, "Oh, I'm doing very well. But I have to keep in mind, I'm also going to be 98 in July. So, I'm getting to be a senior citizen.

At Big 12 Media Days on Monday, it was no different, as the league' s commissioner wanted to make a few things abundantly clear. Bob Bowlsby was asked about two topical and polarizing subjects. One of them dealt with the forever discussed about transferring situation, while the other was on The Big 12 only has 10 competing programs in basketball and football. In fact, only in wrestling does the league have the same number of competing schools that accurately reflects the conference' s moniker. Given the lack of programs currently looking to move, even if the league were looking to expand, potential

• Leaders of the Big Ten , Big 12, Pac 12, and G5, including commissioners, ADs and school presidents, are now on the record for advocating for expansion to 8 teams. These include Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby , Wisconsin AD and former CFP committee member Barry Alvarez, Ohio State president Michael Drake, pretty much all G5 commissioners and a smattering of anonymous Pac-12 people. • There' s brewing support for "the Chuck Neinas plan" which is all P5 champs, the best G5 and two at-larges.

The latest proposal for the College Football Playoff has been the No. 1 topic for sports fans this Thursday afternoon due to its unique format.

According to Pat Forde and Ross Dellenger of Sports Illustrated, the current proposal for the College Football Playoff would include 12 teams with the four highest-ranked conference champions receiving byes. The other eight teams would compete in opening round games that would take place on the home team’s campus.

On-campus games for the College Football Playoff would add another layer of intrigue to the sport, but unfortunately the quarterfinals would take place at neutral sites.

In March, Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said he thought his membership would be in favor of a conference title game and reiterated last week that his league had to do something about being left out of the inaugural College Football Playoff. However, after meeting with the league’ s athletic directors on Tuesday Bowlsby said his conference would continue to push for deregulation of the NCAA’ s rule that requires 12 teams for a conference championship game, but Bowlsby said people “shouldn’t draw any conclusions from that.” The biggest hangup by the Big 12 membership about trying to force a

When asked why quarterfinal games wouldn’t be played on different campuses, Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said “I’m not sure playing in East Lansing on Jan. 7 is a really good idea.”

That comment from Bowlsby has ruffled some feathers, as several Big Ten analysts have fired back at him on social media.

“That [Bowlsby’s comment] I disagree with,” Dan Hope of Eleven Warriors tweeted. “Not sure why that’s any different from playing first-round games in December.”

Bowlsby might very well be protecting his teams in the Big 12 with this remark. However, he had to know he’d receive a negative response for that comment about East Lansing.
