High Noon Highlights(11/26): John Kolar to transfer after graduation

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

After a short break, it’s high noon...

John Kolar to transfer following graduation:

In case you missed it last night, Oklahoma State quarterback John Kolar will transfer from Oklahoma State after he graduates in December. He made the announcement via his Twitter account saying that he would he transfer and pursue a masters degree while playing in his final year of eligibility. Kolar played minimally during his time at Oklahoma State and had a completion for eight yards and rushed for 18 yards against Southeastern Louisiana in 2016.

Mike Gundy doesn’t have answers for frustrating season:

After Saturdays night’s loss in Fort Worth, Mike Gudy talked about this confusing season. Why can’t Oklahoma State beat unranked teams? Gundy is just as confused about it as we are giving this quote.

“I don’t have the answer. It’s the dangedest thing I’ve ever seen,” Gundy said.

“It’s crazy. How we can play one week and then the next week, we don’t play very well. We just don’t push through when things don’t go well early. You know, we just don’t really push over that toughness, and so we have to develop that as an organization, get it back to where it used to be. We’re just not very tough when things aren’t going well.”

Scott Wright of the Oklahoma wrote about how it doesn’t make any sense.

The Cowboys took down their share of lumber this season. The type of wins that could have helped them climb into the race for the Big 12 title game. But they tripped on some twigs in between, and the result is a 6-6 season that generated more confusion than confidence.{NewsOK}

Oklahoma State basketball honors players during Advocare Invitational:

During this week’s Advocare Invitational, Oklahoma State chose to honor two different opposing team players.

Memphis Basketball’s Karim Sameh Azab lost his battle with Leukemia just before the tournament. The Cowboys chose to honor Memphis’ teammate by wearing shirts with his name and number on the back in Memphis colors.

When the Cowboys played LSU on Sunday they chose to honor LSU player Wayde Sims, who was shot in September. They wore his name and number in LSU colors on their shooting shirts.

As a program who has had their share of tragedy, it was awesome of Oklahoma State to take the time to do this.

Cowboys at No.77 in first NET rankings:

Cowboy Basketball was ranked at No.77 in the first round of NET rankings that came out this afternoon. With the sample size being small, it’s hard to say how accurate they are. Alas, they are here. It will be interesting to note how this changes over the course of the year.

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