Cowgirls Continue to Win

The Oklahoma State soccer team added two more wins to its young season, including the first Bedlam win since 2014. The Cowgirls got goals from Kimberly Rodriguez and Charmé Morgan in the battle in Norman.

The team followed the big win up with a 4-0 victory over Creighton, featuring four second-half goals. Jaci Jones led off the scoring nearly four minutes into the second half. Charmé Morgan added her third of the season at the 70-minute mark. Lana Duke and Taylor Olson each scored their first of the season two minutes apart late in the match.

The 4-0 start is the best the Cowgirls have started since 2012. Up next, the Cowgirls travel to College Station to take on the Texas A&M Aggies Friday night.

Mason Rudolph Relationship wih Gundy and Spencer

Mark Cooper of the Tulsa World says trust between senior QB Mason Rudolph and his coaches is the secret to success.

Rudolph has been an Oklahoma State student for 44 months. He’s been the starting quarterback for 34. By the end of this year, he’ll have started more games than any quarterback Mike Gundy has ever coached. Trust is earned.

“I think we have a lot of respect for one another,” [Offensive coordinator Mike] Yurcich said. “That grows. That trust grows. The biggest thing in a relationship is just time. The more time you spend with somebody, the more time you get to know them. I feel we have a really good communication between us, and that’s really, really important to have that open dialogue.”

Rudolph will go down as one of the greatest QBs to ever don the orange and black, without a doubt. The relationship between player and coaches is a huge part of that.

Rickie Fowler at the Northern Trust

Rickie Fowler started hot at the Northern Trust, posting scores of 2-under-par 68 and 4-under 66 in the first two rounds to head into the weekend tied for the lead. Then the wheels fell off. He shot a 4-over 74 on Saturday to fall off the lead and squander another chance at a victory. He finished with an even-par round on Sunday to finish the tournament at -2, tied for 20.

However, it wasn't a bad week at all. Fowler is a fan favorite on Tour, and he showed why. Sam, a 12-year-old fan of the OSU Golf alum, was over the moon when his favorite player gave him a ball.

Fowler wasn't done though. After his round on Friday, Fowler taped a message for Sam, including an awesome surprise - Sam and his family were getting tickets to watch Fowler during the weekend.

As you can imagine, the reaction was priceless.

Sam's weekend plateaued when he was able to meet his idol after Sunday's round.

What an awesome move by Fowler. Sam now has the experience of a lifetime and plenty to share with his friends at school. We are proud to call Fowler a Cowboy.

Garrett McCain Stays Hot

In the first 44 games of his professional career, McCain has 45 hits, 24 runs and 19 RBIs. He has a batting average of .273, a slugging percentage of .364 and and on-base percentage of .346 for the Connecticut Tigers.

Hurricane Harvey

I'm sure you have all seen the devastation Harvey has wreaked on Texas and the Houston area specifically. It's times like this sports has to take a backseat and we need to help our neighbors in Texas, no matter your opinion on the state.

It's not over for Houston. Not by a long shot. If you want to help, but don't know how or are far away, you can easily donate to the American Red Cross by texting HARVEY to 90999. Doing so will donate $10 to help those out that are being hit hardest by the hurricane.
