It’s High Noon. (and the boys are back in town **goooooosebumps**)
Fall Camp is in Session!
Mike Gundy and crew began training their soldiers for the upcoming season this past weekend. Media doesn’t have access to the coaches and players until Wednesday, so until then, we get to enjoy all these nice tweets.
How does the backup QB/RB situation look? Are newcomers Adrian Baker and Aaron Cochran impressing? Are Justice Hill and Dillon Stoner 100% healthy coming into camp? Is Zach Sinor still upset that he isn’t allowed to hangout with the QBs? Stay tuned in throughout the week to get caught up on fall camp.
Cormier vs Jones 2
Former Oklahoma State wrestler, Daniel Cormier, fought Jon Jones in the hugely anticipated light heavy-weight championship bout. Unfortunately, Cormier caught a shin to the side of the face and received the second loss of his career.
After the fight, Cormier went to his Instagram to congratulate Jones, as well as apologize to referee, Big John McCarthy, for getting hostile after he stopped the fight.
First off, thank you all for the kind words. I have felt the support. Congratulations to Jon Jones and his team. They did a phenomenal job and got the victory. Also, to Big John McCarthy, I would like to apologize for acting up with you. I am thankful for the time you gave me to try and defend myself and stay in the fight. You are the best in the business for a reason. I also wanna thank my team and my coaches. I love you all from the bottom of my heart. Your time and energy is greatly appreciated. You guys did a wonderful job, I was ready. It's a fist fight and things happen. Dana White and the @ufc, thank you for being the premiere organization in all of MMA. Again, congrats to Team Jones and JacksonWink. Love you all. I'll see you soon. DC
DC is a true Poke. Interested to see what the future holds for the big guy.
Jhajuan Seales and Todd Monken Reunite in Tampa Bay
Jhajuan Seales was only a redshirt freshman when Todd Monken was the OC in Stillwater, but it’s clear that Monken is very aware of Seales’ insane athleticism. It’s all about who you know, ya know? After being cut by the Bears, Seales will now be catching footballs from Jameis Winston in Tampa Bay.
Seales (6-1, 206) signed with the Chicago Bears as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma State this spring but was waived a month later. He played four seasons for the Cowboys, racking up 112 receptions for 1,785 yards and 12 touchdowns in 43 games. At OSU's Pro Day, Seales ran a 4.51-second 40-yard dash and recorded a vertical leap of 41.5 inches.
Bonus: Tulsa/OKC Prospect Walks off for Dodgers
I know this isn’t Oklahoma State related, but if you have been to a Tulsa Drillers or OKC Dodgers game this season, you’ve likely seen Kyle Farmer running around the diamond. Farmer was recently called up to LA, and last night, Kyle Farmer was the happiest man in the world. He hit a walk-off 2 RBI double to beat the rival San Fransisco Giants. Oh, and it was his first major league at-bat of his career. Baseball is incredible sometimes.
Kyle Farmer came up in the bottom of the 11th for his first MLB at bat and delivered another Dodger win pic.twitter.com/N0Fw2EHYlZ— Kent Murphy (@KentMurphy) July 31, 2017
