It’s high noon...

A.J, Green’s latest film impresses:

In his latest draft musings, Tony Pauline was impressed with former Oklahoma State corner A.J. Green.

Though he won’t be my highest-rated prospect from the conference, I came away more impressed by Oklahoma State cornerback A.J. Green than any other Big 12 player.

A shutdown corner who was rarely challenged by opposing quarterbacks, Green is very technically sound. He displays a quick, fluid backpedal, snaps his hips in transition, and stays step for step with receivers everywhere on the field.

I’ve had Green highly rated for two years now, and his senior tape continued to impress me. {Pro Football Network}

Todd Bradford excited for his return to football:

Todd Bradford wanted to get back into football as soon as he left it. Scott Wright wrote about Oklahoma State’s recruiting coordinator returning to the field after a brief time in the oil field.

“I regretted getting out,” Bradford said. “I just missed football terribly and I missed Oklahoma State almost as much as I missed football. So it was the perfect opportunity. I feel fortunate and blessed that I had the opportunity to do it.”

Coach Mike Gundy hired Bradford as OSU’s director of recruiting — which was the second time Gundy had hired Bradford, who was the linebackers coach for Gundy in 2005-07. {The Oklahoman}

Rutherford is Oklahoma State’s all-time 3-point shooter:

Guerin Emig got the chance to talk to players from that 1995 final four team on Saturday. He was able to have a great conversation about who Oklahoma State’s all-time 3-point shooter was.

“You don’t even have to get there,” Rutherford added as he looked at his inquisitor, fully aware he ranks behind Phil Forte and Keiton Page on OSU’s career 3-point chart. “I look at it this way. I did it in three years. It took them four years.”

“Who else would you put in the category?” Roberts wondered.

When the inquisitor mentioned Page and Forte, Roberts said: “Ah c’mon. No.”

Roberts gave Page and Forte their due, then got to the heart of the matter by stating: “This guy did it in more big games, more pressure moments, in clutch times against clutch players.” {Tulsa World}

Song of the Day:

Happy Presidents Day!

I know this is outdated, but this was the only song about presidents I could think of okay? It’s only missing three.
