The 2013 Skywriters Tour Is In The Books
August 17, 2013
Wendell Barnhouse is a nationally-known and respected columnist who has spent over 20 years covering collegiate athletics. He has reported from 25 Final Fours and more than three dozen bowl games and has written about the Big 12 and its schools since the conference's beginning. Barnhouse will be updating the Big 12 Insider on happenings and behind-the-scenes information about the conference.

Big 12 Skywriters Tour Version 6.0 is complete. This annual football tradition started in the Big Eight Conference was restored in 2008 when the Conference redesigned its web site and hired Your Humble Correspondent.

This year, YHC was joined by Digital Media Assistant Riannon Rowley. The tour visited each Big 12 campus to compile video and interviews for football previews. The first preview – Rowley’s video and YHC’s story - will be posted Monday with a new preview going live through Aug. 28.
