BC-FBC--Big 12 Injury Reports
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. (AP) — Big 12 coaches are discussing the implementation of a standardized conference-wide injury report, but they would prefer some type of national uniformity.
The Big 12 is among six FBS conferences holding spring meetings at the same resort hotel in Arizona this week. The American Football Coaches Association also met this week.
Introducing NFL-style injury reports to college football has become more likely in the past year as legal wagering on sporting events has become more prevalent. Still, it’s a long way from becoming a reality.
Currently, the sharing of information about injured players varies from school to school. A Supreme Court decision last year opened the door for states to implement sports gambling. Eight states have jumped in with some form of legal sports wagering.
Texas coach Tom Herman says the conference wants to be prepared for a national movement toward injury reports.
