It’s high noon:

Barry Sanders and the ‘War Pigs” to be Homecoming grand marshal:

In honor of the 30th anniversary of his Heisman season, Oklahoma State is bringing back a legend to lead the “Sea of Orange” Parade. Barry Sanders, as well as the 1988 offensive line AKA the “War Pigs”. In addition to the parade Sanders and the War Pigs will be around all weekend doing different things. Could a Barry Sanders statue be in the works? We’ll have to see.

Jim Knowles goes on the mic at practice:

During practice yesterday DC Jim Knowles let fans into practice to see what he’s during a session of fall camp. And after some yoga he was feeling very zen.

“Swim with the stream.” Coach Knowles told a player. “I’ll use sayings like that I mean you may not even know what it means.” He ever struck a few yoga poses. I love how much he’s letting fans into what he does. As a new coach, it’s important that fans get to know you. Coach seems like he’s a fantastic guy to play for. Maybe it’s the yoga keeping him calm.

Former Oklahoma State defensive tackle DeQuinton Osbourne is headed to the Broncos:

The Denver Post’s Kyle Fredrickson is reporting that the Denver Broncos have picked up former Cowboys DeQuinton Osborne for training camp.

Osborne was an undrafted free agent when he was signed by the Dallas Cowboys in April of this year.
