High Noon Highlights(10/30): Thurman Thomas has number retired on Monday Night Football

Welcome to High Noon Highlights, a place to catch up on everything you missed in Oklahoma State Athletics

NFL: New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills Timothy T. Ludwig-USA TODAY Sports

It’s high noon...

Thurman Thomas has jersey retired on Monday Night Football:

Former Oklahoma State running back and current NFL Hall of Famer Thurman Thomas added another honor as the Bills held a ceremony to retire his number, 34, on Monday night. The ceremony was special and OSU couldn’t be prouder of this legendary Cowboy!

“To all of my fans,” Thomas said. “Some of ya’ll are crazy as hell, you know who you are. But you guys have supported me throughout my career... I love you more than you will ever know.”

What an awesome way to have your number retired as well during Monday Night Football.

Cowboys win Uniform of the Week for week 9 from UniSwag:

I mean come on how could they not. Those throwbacks were some of the best I’ve seen from the Cowboys. Hats off to Nike and the people on the OSU Athletics staff that made these happen. They were definitely a cause of a lot of buzz.

Oklahoma State pulls off awesome Halloween prank:

It’s #spookyszn (for another day). With that, Oklahoma State decided to have a little fun. They decided to put someone dressed as an incredibly creepy little girl in one of the elevators frequently used by students athletes in Gallagher-Iba Arena. The results are grown men football players screaming like little kids and it’s the funniest thing you’ll watch all day.

Cornelius, Sinor receive Big 12 Conference weekly honors.

After both put up massive performances against Texas, Taylor Cornelius has earned Offensive Player of the Week and Zach Sinor has earned Co-Special Teams Player of the Week.

Matthew Wolff rising as star of college golf:

Ryan Levnar of had a fantastic piece yesterday on the awesome rise of Oklahoma State golfer Matthew Wolff. The piece details how Wolff is going to be a huge disruption for his opponents.

To thrive in this era of Internet trolling, Wolff has needed a refreshing, new-school coach and skin thicker than Kevlar, but there’s a hint of satisfaction in his voice as he recounts some of his past skeptics.

“To be able to prove them all wrong,” he says, “motivates me just a little bit more.”

Not since Rickie Fowler has a 19-year-old possessed such appealing attributes: the eye-catching swing and monster game, the unmistakable swagger and dynamic personality.

Wolff has become the face of college golf.

And maybe soon the pro game, too.

“He brings so much to the table,” says his swing coach, George Gankas, “and you can tell in his charisma, the way he hits the ball, the way he carries himself. If he plays like I know he can play, like, oh s---, he’s going to be such a huge disruptor.” {Golf Channel}

That’s all for today. Have a wonderful afternoon!
