It’s high noon...

Cowboys are one of the best teams in collegiate golf... maybe ever?:

There’s absolutely no question what school holds the title of #golfschool. But could that 17-18 golf team be the best in the sport? Golf Week’s Brently Romine took a deep dive into that question. While he didn’t quite reach an answer the article is still an interesting read as it looks into some of NCAA men’s golf’s best teams. I mean with 9 tournament wins and an NCAA Championship you have to talk about it right?

Oklahoma State coach Alan Bratton won’t go as far as to proclaim the 2017-18 Cowboys as the greatest men’s college golf team of all time.

“A lot of people have asked me about where they rank as far as best team, and I always tell them you really can’t compare teams from different eras. It’s really impossible,” Bratton said.

“But … If someone is even asking the question, that’s quite a compliment.” {Golf Week}

Cowboys set record with 26 Academic All-Big 12 honoress:

It was an awesome year in the class room for Cowboy Football with a program record 26 (!!!) Academic All-Big 12 Honorees. It also ties with Iowa State for most in the conference. What a fantastic accomplishment.

Thirteen of OSU’s honorees made the Academic All-Big 12 first team, including Cowboy backs Britton Abbott and Logan Carter, who were both nominated with 4.0 GPAs. Abbott is one of only six players in Big 12 history to be nominated with a perfect GPA in three straight seasons.

To make the Academic All-Big 12 first team, a player must have a 3.20 or higher GPA either cumulative or the two past semesters and have participated in 20 percent of his team’s games. Second-team selections hold a 3.00 to 3.19 GPA. {The Oklahoman}

Ateman to get opportunity with Raiders:

Marcell Ateman will finally get his shot with the Raiders after injuries to Martavius Bennett and Jordy Nelson.

Martavis Bryant has already been ruled out Sunday against Arizona and should miss several more weeks at least. Jordy Nelson has a bone bruise near his knee, and wasn’t able to practice on Wednesday. He hasn’t been ruled out of anything, but it seems unlikely he’ll play in the Valley of the Sun.

That puts Marcell Ateman in position to be active for the first time all season. The Raiders also promoted Saeed Blacknall from the practice squad and signed two young receivers to the prep unit. {NBC Bay Area}

That’s all for today! Have a fantastic weekend!
