KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- BOOM!
Cairo Santos turns heads. No. Wait.
He wounds ears. It's a brontosaurus in a tutu, dancing through the tulips. No. Hang on.

IRVING, Texas -- Of the eight schools joining Conference USA, perhaps none is more excited than North Texas.
"It's a tremendous opportunity," coach Dan McCarney said during Wednesday's C-USA Media Day. "When you sit there and talk about eight national television games for North Texas, six bowl opportunities from Hawaii to New Orleans...
