It’s high noon...

Andrew Heaney placed in Cowboy Baseball Hall of Fame:

Angels pitcher Andrew Heaney has been honored with a place in the Cowboy Baseball Hall of Fame. During his time at Oklahoma State he lead the club in wins. He was a also a top-10 pick in the MLB Draft. Congrats to Heaney for the honor and being among greats like Robin Ventura.

Kirk Herbstreit names Oklahoma State in top-10 performances:

After being West Virginia on Saturday, ESPN announcer Kirk Herbstreit placed the Cowboys at No.2 on his list of top-10 performances for the week. Notre Dame came in at No.1 after their 36-3 beat down of Syracuse. Gotta say Oklahoma State had a little bit tougher competition but thanks for the recognition Kirk!

Les Miles takes on Kansas job:

Bill Haisten at the Tulsa World wrote an interesting article regarding former Oklahoma State head coach Les Miles taking the job at Kansas. He highlights what he did at Oklahoma State to express why he feels Miles is up for the challenge.

If Miles doesn’t seem daunted by the Kansas rebuild, perhaps it’s because of what he achieved at OSU.

“The similarities between Oklahoma State and Kansas are significant,” Miles said. “They parallel quite nicely.”

Miles was Bob Simmons’ OSU offensive coordinator in 1995-97 and coached Dallas Cowboy tight ends in 1998-2000.

By the end of his four-year run in Stillwater, Miles had beaten a No. 4-ranked Oklahoma team and a No. 3-ranked Oklahoma team. He took OSU to three bowl games, including the January 2004 Cotton Bowl.

When Miles had success, T. Boone Pickens donated $20 million to his alma mater. It was the seed money that resulted ultimately in a beautifully renovated stadium. {Tulsa World}

That’s all for today folks! We’ll be back with High Noon Highlights after a short break for the Thanksgiving holiday.
