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

It’s high noon...

Blogging the Boys takes a deep dive into the career of Dan Bailey:

RJ Ochoa of the SB Nation blog Bogging the Boys too a look a the career of Dan Bailey over the past few years, and why the Cowboys could have made the decision to cut Bailey.

While it might boggle the mind of Oklahoma State fans, as Bailey has the most made field goals in the history of the franchise. Ochoa tries to make sense of everything.

Dan definitely struggled in the season’s final quarter, but he hadn’t missed at all in 2017 before that (eight games). It would be a bit irresponsible for the Cowboys to overreact to one quarter of a season across a seven-year career which is why people have looked elsewhere.

It’s true that Dan Bailey has in a literal sense declined as far as field goal percentage goes over the past three years. If you take one look at this you feel like Sisemore, that the Cowboys had just cause in moving on from Bailey.

The Cowboys decision certainly wasn’t popular. But there is a possibility that it did make some sense.

Dan Bailey reportedly will work out for New York Jets:

Just days after being cut from the Cowboys, Dan Bailey is already getting looks from other teams. Newsday is reporting that the former OSU Cowboy will work out for the New York Jets. According to the report, Bailey is set to work out today. The Jets did not waive anyone or sign any free agents on Sunday.

Alex Norén makes team Europe for Ryder Cup:

#Golfschool is officially represented on the American and European side of the Ryder Cup. Alex Norén has made Team Europe and will play in France. Rickie Fowler will play for team USA.

It will be a lot of fun to see former Oklahoma State teammates face off.

Hunter Mahan earns PGA Tour card back:

After losing his card in 2017 and playing this season based on past championship status, Mahan is back to full status on the tour after posting a T-2 at the DAP Championships over the weekend. Congrats Hunter!

Chuba Hubbard earns Big 12 Player of the Week:

After a fantastic first performance in a Cowboy uniform, Chuba Hubbard was on the Big 12’s Player of the Week list. Hubbard had 65 receiving yards and 1 touchdown with 42 rushing yards.

That’s all for today! Have a fantastic Labor Day.
