It’s high noon...

Jordan Brailford is doing Jordan Brailford things:

Jordan Brailford has been impressing all week as he prepares for the Shrine Game. Check out this spin move from yesterday.

Oklahoma State assistant golf coach has been diagnosed with cancer:

Let’s saddle up for a fellow Cowboy and send prayers and positive thoughts for Donnie Darr. He has recently been diagnosed with cancer and is undergoing treatment, Our thoughts are with Donnie as he gets ready to kick cancer’s butt.

“Donnie coaches that your response to adversity determines your success. I know he will follow his own advise as he whips cancer,” OSU head coach Alan Bratton said. “He will inspire all of us who love him and anyone else he encounters. He always has and always will.”

Darr was diagnosed with stage 3 colorectal cancer on Dec. 13 . He will undergo a 10-month treatment plan that will include six weeks of radiation and chemotherapy in Houston before returning to Stillwater for 6-8 weeks. He will then return to Houston for surgery followed by four additional months of chemotherapy treatment in Stillwater. Two months after a final round of treatments, a two-week stint in Houston will conclude the treatment plan. {}

What this week’s dismissals mean for Oklahoma State’s recruiting:

Earlier this weak, Head Coach Mike Boynton released Michael Weathers, Kentrevious Jones and Maurice Calloo. With that comes Scholarships opening up and a door for recruiting opening. Nathan Ruiz of the Oklahoman wrote a piece on what could happen with those scholarship opening for next year.

“It’s a challenge,” he said. “But I don’t know if it’s a different challenge for us than for anybody else, so we just have to make sure we’re doing as much as we can. I do think our staff does a good job of finding out as much information as we can. You never know everything, and when things come up, it’s really about more so how you deal with them in that moment.

“We want to know everything, we don’t, and you’ve got to figure out how to deal with things as they come up.” {The Oklahoman}
