High Noon Highlights (9/19): Is Mason Rudolph really as good as we think?

It’s High Noon, here are your highlights for Tuesday!

NCAA Football: Oklahoma State at Pittsburgh Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

Head Coach Mike Boynton talks about Jeffrey Carroll

Coach Boynton has some high praise for senior guard Jeffrey Carroll in this video. He says that in the long list of wing players that includes Tony Allen, Joey Graham, James Anderson, and Markel Brown, to name a few, Carroll is next to add his name to that list. Carroll was one of the most improved players in the whole country last year, and I’m sure that he will improve even more this year!

Broadcast Crew Announced for Oklahoma State-Texas Tech

This is extremely exciting. Joel Klatt and Gus Johnson are my favorite announcer duo in college football. Klatt is intelligent with the color commentary and is engaging to listen to. On the play-by-play side, Gus Johnson is an absolute treasure. He has so much energy that is uncommon from a play-by-play guy. It could be at the beginning of the play, as the ball is in the air, or when the touchdown is scored, it doesn’t matter to Gus Johnson, he’ll lose his mind at anytime during a play. If you’ve never heard Johnson call a game before, watch the video below, you’ll be sure to be entertained.

Note: The first one is a kickoff return against Oklahoma State...

Oklahoma State Baseball Jerseys Will Soon be Available

Ebbet’s Field Flannels Inc. is a company that specialized in throwback/old school and hats and jerseys for baseball. They are starting a new series of throwback college baseball jerseys. Among the schools listed that they will start selling is Oklahoma State. The Cowboys have had some of the best baseball jerseys over the years, so this will be something I definitely will need in my closet.

The jerseys will be available in the coming weeks!

NFL Scouts Discuss Mason Rudolph

While many believe Mason Rudolph is among the top quarterbacks in the nation, this article gives reasons as to why QB1 doesn’t live up to the hype.

Added an area scout: “Not as good as the media wants everyone to believe; he’s a Day 3 guy. His accuracy isn’t as good as the numbers show—his receivers make a lot of tough catches for him. Arm strength is adequate, not tops. What’s the difference between him and Bryce Petty?”

Oh boy, Rudolph is already a more polished quarterback than Petty ever was. While they both run a spread, air-raid offense, Petty is a one-read quarterback (throws to his main target that play and doesn’t look elsewhere). Yes, having an embarrassment of riches at wide receiver does help, but Rudolph has proven he can be an NFL quarterback with his arm talent and quick mind. Except, a couple other scouts don’t think so:

“He’s got good size,” was the positive an AFC personnel exec found before echoing the sentiment, “but his arm strength is lacking and he’s inconsistent with his accuracy.”

“At at a minimum, [Rudolph] has to have the arm talent,” the AFC scouting director said. “He might have the mental ability, but we don’t learn that until we get our hands on them after the season.”

Yep, no arm talent or accuracy at all. Nothing to see here, carry on.

That’s all for today, folks! Have a great Tuesday!
