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

It’s high noon....

NCAA process could be dragged out:

Oklahoma State basketball appeal process could take 220 days. According to the Oklahoman, the athletics department filed an appeal virtually as soon as they got the sanctions.

An NCAA Division I Infractions Appeals Committee document shows how Ole Miss football was hit with multiple sanctions in 2017 and filed its notice of appeal on Dec. 15, 2017.

The biggest penalty that came down on Ole Miss was the postseason ban, but the Rebels managed to successfully appeal the recruiting restrictions put on the program by claiming the committee “abused its discretion in prescribing penalties.” That decision was announced on Nov. 1, 2018, nearly a year after the initial sanctions were released. {Tulsa World}

Could 2020 be a last stand for Gundy?:

O’Colly sports editor Sudeep Tumma wrote a column detailing why he thinks this could be Gundy’s last chance at Oklahoma State.

The truth is, despite his immense success, Gundy has won only one Big 12 championship and holds a 2-13 record against Oklahoma.

While I personally don’t think those numbers define him — defeating a powerhouse such as Oklahoma is no easy task — it is a concern.

But the ugly truth is, at the core of it all, winning is so important. But that level of winning is also an ever-changing carousel.

That’s just how it works. There’s no “set” level of winning that ensures job security.

Think about it.

No matter what sport it is, a coach who takes over a historically bad team, has a few years to make them a playoff contender. And that’s considered a huge success. {O’Colly}

An Oklahoma State softball transfer you need to be watching:

Jordan Doggett is one of Softball America’s transfer players to watch. She came to Oklahoma State from Georgia and was a heavy hitter for the Bulldogs.

Doggett was a consistent hitter for the Bulldogs throughout her four-year career, and finished the shortened 2020 season with a .360 batting average. She steadily improved in each of her seasons at Georgia and will look to keep that momentum going next season with Oklahoma State. {Softball America}
