    Oklahoma State starter Michael Freeman didn’t allow Oklahoma much of a chance to drive the ball Saturday night in Bedlam at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark. Freeman struck out seven and only three of his outs came in the outfield during a complete-game performance in an 8-1 Cowboys win. “His ball has very late action,” OSU coach Josh Holliday said. “Having tried to catch him before, the ball has a late unpredictability about it — some will sink, some will dart, every now and then some will cut. “When you’re not even sure how to get your hand around the ball, then you know the hitter’s not quite sure how to get his barrel square on the ball.

    Oklahoma State right fielder Corey Hassel had a trio of nifty plays in the field that helped the Cowboys pull out a 9-6 Bedlam win Friday night at OneOK Field. First, in the fourth inning, the Stillwater native laid out on a dead sprint, diving for Kyle Mendenhall’s liner near the right-field line to end the inning. Hassel came up big again with two outs in the sixth, coming in on Hunter Haley’s liner to right to catch the ball with a dive. He didn’t need to dive in the eighth inning, running into foul territory to catch Anthony Hermelyn’s pop-up with two on and no out.

  • Adrian Peterson said playing for Dallas Cowboys 'would be nice'

    Published: Wed, Apr 29, 2015

    Running back Adrian Peterson apparently hasn't ditched his desire to perhaps play for the Cowboys if the opportunity presented itself. While in attendance for the Houston Rockets' 103-94 win over the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday, Peterson told Dallas' WFAA-TV "It would be nice" to play for the Cowboys. "I've got family here, my dad's here. But I'm under contract, so we'll see." Earlier on Tuesday, Vikings GM Rick Spielman said the franchise had no intention of trading the former OU star. With the NFL Draft set to begin on Thursday, will Peterson still be a Viking by the end of the week? The Vikings start organized traning activities on May 26, the first day Peterson could start being fined for not showing up to camp, according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press. From Pioneer Press Vikings beat writer Chris Tomasson: "Peterson, who missed 15 games last season because of a child-abuse incident, is disgruntled because he doesn’t believe some in the Vikings organization did enough last season to get him back on the field."

  • Former OU football player Trey Metoyer gets 8 years probation for indecent exposure

    BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS | Updated: Tue, Apr 28, 2015

    NORMAN — Former Oklahoma wide receiver Trey Metoyer has been sentenced to eight years of probation following accusations he exposed himself to women. Cleveland County District Attorney Greg Mashburn’s office says Metoyer was convicted of indecent exposure after entering a blind plea, meaning he didn’t strike a deal with prosecutors. The state had requested a prison sentence of at least three years for Metoyer but a judge gave him probation instead. Metoyer left the Sooners football team in 2013 after being charged with indecent exposure. Authorities say he publicly exposed himself to two different women in Norman. Metoyer started four of the 11 games he played in 2012 and played in four games in 2013.
