Big Bash chief Kim McConnie believes clubs need to come to terms with signing star players on shorter deals, suggesting the "trade off" of a longer season must be flexibility. The KFC BBL's expansion from 35 games two seasons ago to 59 this summer has seen the length of the competition extend to two months, providing an added challenge for teams looking to secure elite international talent. While the BBL's star power remains high with the presence of T20 guns Rashid Khan, Brendon McCullum and Jos Buttler this season, the threat of overlapping domestic T20 leagues has become increasingly apparent. De Villiers and Russell were also among a host of big names, including Mitchell Johnson who cited a longer season in his decision to not play for the Scorchers in BBL08, that signed on for a lucrative UAE T20 league before it was eventually cancelled.
The Auburn Tigers will have to replace QB Jarrett Stidham for the 2019 season, and have some interesting options like Joey Gatewood, Malik Willis, Bo Nix and Cord Sandberg on the roster. Per a story posted on Oklahoma transfer QB Austin Kendalls Instagram page, Kendall is in Auburn on Monday evening: Kendall has been at Oklahoma the past three years, serving as a backup for Heisman-winning quarterbacks Baker Mayfield and Kyler Murray. The Sooners are also looking into some graduate transfer options for the 2019 season, though, so perhaps Kendall saw the writing on the wall.

League play begins this weekend with a pair of televised games Friday night: Ball State at Toledo at 7 p.m., and Buffalo at Eastern Michigan at 9 p.m,. Outlook: Ranked 20th by the Associated Press, the Bulls are the class of the league, but could be vulnerable to a few MAC teams with comparable size, athleticism and depth. Outlook: Surprisingly good defense combined with explosive firepower at every position, led by guard Jaelan Sanford (17.8 ppg) make coach Tod Kowalczyks Rockets a fan favorite. Kent State's Jalen Avery (0) looks to pass around Xavier's Tyrique Jones (0) in the first half of an NCAA college basketball game, Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017, in Cincinnati.
