The Big 12 Conference announced a public reprimand of University of Kansas defensive coordinator Vic Shealy and linebacker Steven Johnson for public statements criticizing a face mask penalty in the Baylor at Kansas football game on November 12.  Their comments were in violation of the Big 12 Conference's Sportsmanship and Ethical Conduct rules.

"Both individuals violated Conference rules that prohibit coaches, student-athletes, athletic department staff and university personnel from making public comments about game officials," said Big 12 interim commissioner Chuck Neinas.  "Consistent with our precedent for such violations they are being issued a public reprimand."
