Well, the weekend is here but this one feels like a bit of a letdown since we were supposed to be just hours away from kickoff. Fortunately, this should be our final Saturday without OSU football.

It’s hard to believe that Friday marked the one-year anniversary of T. Boone Pickens’ passing. Oklahoma State released this nice video in remembrance of its greatest benefactor and an all-time Cowboy.

And the Tulsa World looked back on Pickens’ life in photos.

Earlier this week, Oklahoma State announced COVID-induced budget cuts that affected 232 of its 241 employees including voluntary cuts by both Mike Holder and Mike Gundy. It appears that the nine of Gundy’s 10 assistants that are under contract were not affected according to a story run by The Oklahoman that included info from USA Today.

ESPN ranked the top 25 college football players in the Big 12 in 2020 and four Cowboys were on the list. At the very top were Chuba Hubbard and Tylan Wallace.

OSU moved up four spots in D1Baseball’s list of Top 100 programs to No. 17. Before you spit out your coffee, this is a rolling 10-year ranking and does not take into account the glory days of Allie P. But that jump is a testament to what Josh Holliday has built and continues to build.
