What is an “All-Time Cowboy,” exactly? Whatever you think it is. This is not a “who’s better?” contest, this is a tournament for the fans. Who did you idolize growing up as a Pokes fan? Who is constantly representing our beloved University, even past their college days? Who would you most want to sit down next to at the Penny, and drink a limey with? These are the types of questions you should be asking yourself while voting. This is for you guys!

Round 1 / Match #5: #13 Rashaun Woods vs. #20 Robin Ventura
Oklahoma State has had some exciting receivers come through the program in the last 16 years; receivers like, Dez Bryant, Adarius Bowman, Justin Blackmon, Josh Stewart, David Glidden & others. Yet, none of them can touch the career that Rashaun Woods had at Oklahoma State. Woods is the leader for receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns in Oklahoma State history!
The Woods brothers will always be remembered in Stillwater, but Rashaun’s name in particular deserve to be up in the rafters, somewhere.
Robin Ventura is not only the greatest all-around baseball player in Oklahoma State history, he may be the best all-around player in NCAA Baseball history! Ventura put up some numbers in three years that would put my little league stats to shame (I grew up thinking I was the next Chipper Jones, it never panned out). Everyone knows that he has the NCAA D-1 record with a 58-game hitting streak. The rest of his numbers were just as impressive. He ended his OSU career with a .428 batting average.
Robin obtained some hardware over his time at Oklahoma State; Golden Spikes Award, Dick Howser Trophy & an Olympic gold medal. Robin Ventura had quite the collegiate career, and we were happy that he called OSU his home.
So, who are you going to vote for? Are you going with the record holding OSU receiver, or one of the best college baseball players of all time? Vote below and and share the tweet with your friends!
