It’s high (after)noon....

Wide receiver Landon Wolf enters transfer portal:

Monday morning Landon Wolf announced via his Twitter account that he play the last year of eligibility at a different school.

“To my teammates, from two-a-days to COVID testing. Being around close friends made everyday things more enjoyable,” Wolf said. “I am humbled to have been voted a team captain, and I have not taken that honor for granted. Many of the bonds I made will be lifelong. I am grateful for the brotherhood we share, and I look forward to reminiscing about our times at OSU when we’re too old to run.”

Wolf started as a walk-on and worked his way up to a team captain and a huge part of the Oklahoma State offense. Wolf had 82 receptions for 780 yards over his career.

The Oklahoma State Basketball programs have a surprise edge:

The O’Colly wrote about a fantastic new addition to the OSU basketball facilities shot tracker.

Merely labeling it an app though, does not do the ShotTracker justice. The $45,000 system utilized by the Oklahoma State men’s and women’s basketball programs consists of a network of cameras and wearable sensors hooked up to apps and iPads in the OSU practice gym.

What does the equipment that sounds straight out of a James Bond movie (and is worth a car that Bond would drive) do?

“ShotTracker is a revolutionary sensor-based system that delivers statistics and analytics to teams, fans and broadcast networks instantly,” the ShotTracker website reads. “Enhancing the experience of the game – both on and off the court.” {O’Colly}

This is such a cool feature and it seems to definitely be helping both teams and paying off.

Oklahoma State comes in at No.35 in first NET rankings:

The first net rankings of the season came out today and Oklahoma State was given the no.35 spot.

This does, however, include the Cowboys overtime road upset of No. 13 Texas Tech, which I’m sure bumped the Pokes up quite a few spots as Tech checks in at No. 18.

As for the Pokes’ big road win over Marquette, it appears that game is not really paying off as much as the Golden Eagles are now 6-5 on the season and check in at No. 63. Still a solid win though and looks good on a resume. {Pokes Report}
