It’s high noon...

One-on-one interview with Barry Sanders:

After he went back to Stillwater to be the Homcoming Grand Marshall over the weekend, Undefeated took the time to catch up with the legendary Cowboy for an interview. The relieved the Heisman Trophy season that happened thirty years ago this year.

What are your fondest memories from that 1988 season?

The first play of the season, I ran the kickoff back for a touchdown. I think we were playing Miami of Ohio. I was still carrying the bulk of the load on special teams. It wasn’t sure in my mind that I was going to be the starting running back going forward. My understanding was it was going to be on a game-by-game basis because Thurman [Thomas] had been there. As far as games, I remember the Colorado game well … that being considered our first little test of the year. They had a couple of future pros on the team.

The whole thing is awesome. You can read it here:

3-Point Play- Oklahoma State on Eric Bossi’s list of surprise recruiting classes:

Rivals writer Eric Brossi wrote about the top three surprise recruiting classes in college basketball. Making his list was Mike Boynton and Oklahoma State. Here’s what he had to say about the Cowboys’ current class.

I’ve been convinced since early last season that Mike Boynton is a rising star in the college coaching world. The Cowboys making a nice run in the NIT and winning twice against Kansas were things I consider to be glimpses of bigger things coming for Boynton in Stillwater. He’s breaking through on the recruiting trail too and has a trio of Rivals150 players – Marcus Watson, Avery Anderson and Kaleb Boone – as part of a 2019 recruiting class that currently ranks No. 19 overall.

There’s now doubt that Boynton has this program headed in the right direction.

Chuba Hubbard talks the big win on Saturday:

During player availability yesterday, Nathan Feken got a chance to chat with running back Chuba Hubbard. He talked about where this team is in terms of chemistry.

“once we start clicking we’re going to be able to do something special.” Hubbard said.
