OSU and NC State to wrestle in Italy


" The idea of a neutral-site college dual meet is nothing new. In the past, schools have held duals in the hometown gyms of wrestling stars; this season's Rutgers vs. Maryland dual meet will be held at storied Yankee Stadium in New York in November. Now Oklahoma State and North Carolina State are taking the idea to new lengths -- and make some history in the process -- by holding their upcoming dual in Naples, Italy on January 5, 2018, the two schools announced Tuesday. It's the first time an NCAA wrestling event will take place outside of North America. "

Dan Bailey dealing with "back tightness" per report


Former Oklahoma State kicker missed his second consecutive field goal attempt of 47 yards during the Cowboys' game against the San Francisco 49ers Sunday. That doesn't happen very often. Cowboys' owner Jerry Jones attributes it to a possible health concern with Bailey. "We were very concerned before the game," Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said of Bailey. "Not surprised at all that he missed the field goal. Thought that was a pretty good time to check it out. Might not have wanted to try another one during the game -- a long field goal. There's no question that he had a limitation there."

I don't know if he is or not but he is definitely a playmaker and there's plenty of reason for Oklahoma State fans to get excited. Check out the link for a great article on the OSU running back commit.
