It’s high noon(ish):

Matt Wolff sets school record:

Matthew Wolff has accomplished something that no one has in Oklahoma State tradition rich men’s golf program has ever done before. Golf Digest detailed his record setting win.

So what’s the big deal? Plenty of OSU golfers have won tournament titles, right? Yes, but Wolff, the national freshman of the year in 2017-’18, also won the individual title in the Cowboys first two stroke-play starts of the 2018-’19 season, a one-shot win at the Carmel Cup at Pebble Beach and a one-shot triumph at the Fighting Illini Invitational at Olympia Fields. Given that Cowboys play just one more tournament this fall, the East Lake Cup, a four-team match-play event, Wolff will finish the first half of the season undefeated in stroke play and becomes the first OSU golfer to finish a fall season undefeated while having played at least two stroke-play tournaments. {Golf Digest}

Bills to retire Thurman Thomas jersey number:

Former Oklahoma State running back Thurman Thomas will have his jersey number retired by the Buffalo Bills after playing for them in the NFL.

Thomas’ number 34 will become the third Bills jersey number put away permanently, joining number 12 and number 78.

”For me, it ranks right up there with the Hall of Fame,” Thomas said. ”Having your jersey retired with Jim Kelly and Bruce Smith, not a lot of people have the opportunity to get that done. For me to sit up here and say that 34 will never be issued again, nobody can ask for it. They won’t even be able to find it. You know what? That makes it all special.”

Congratulations to Thomas for the great honor!
