It’s high noon...

Doug Meacham named offensive coordinator of St. Louis XFL team:

Former Oklahoma State assistant coach and player Doug Meacham has found his next landing spot after being fired as the offensive coordinator at Kansas.

Leading the staff will be offensive coordinator Doug Meacham. An established name at the college level, Meacham has been an offensive coordinator almost continuously since 1991, first at Georgia Military College, and then Jacksonville State, Henderson State, Samford, Houston, TCU and Kansas. He was not retained by Kansas during their 2018 season. {FootballScoop}

Parker Scott has good outing with Chantham Anglers:

Oklahoma State pitcher Parker Scott is playing in the Cape Cod league this summer. Yesterday he put an impressive performance.

GoPokes at the Pro Football Hall of Fame:

GoPokes.com was able to visit the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton Ohio over the weekend. Robert Allen wrote about his experience seeing two Oklahoma State greats enshrined there.

It was all pretty incredible to see Sanders and Thomas immortalized in Canton. It’s enough to make anyone from Oklahoma State proud. For me, I covered both those guys. I was there when Thurman helped Oklahoma State win the Gator Bowl against South Carolina and when he was drafted by the Bills. I was there every step of the way for Barry Sanders’ record season in 1988. Those two were a huge part of my early career in broadcasting and in the media. I couldn’t have had a better start and two better players to cover. {GoPokes.com}
