I agree that some real ground needs to be made in fixing this relationship. Criticize me all you want but he's one of the best WR in the league right now and having him here for an induction on a big recruiting weekend could be nice.
Disagree. I think trying to "fixing this relationship" massively reeks of trying to take advantage of what he's accomplished in the NFL and nothing whatsoever about what he accomplished (which was in a relative sense almost nothing) at OSU. Sorry, but I think that's a really bad idea.

Side note: I was at the unveiling of Barry’s statue and some jerk at the front wore this ridiculously large orange cowboy hat that obscured a lot of our vision. Seriously, who does that?

PJ bore the brunt of recruiting violations by JJ. He coached some of our best, and worst, years. It would have been interesting to see what he would have done without the probation. I think he could be up there, but not for a while. It could be a posthumous award.
His embracing of the culture of goon precludes his inclusion

There's been 4 Oklahoma State players inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame:
- Bob Fenimore
- Leslie O'Neal
- Thurman Thomas.
- Barry Sanders

If you also include "retired" numbers, you would add Terry Miller to that list.

I think by any definition, those would have to be the first five Ring of Honor Inductees.

I’m starting to think we do these 4 next and go from there. Feel like the 2011 should be a little older. Not as old as Barry and Thurman were though. On PJ, is there anyone still connected to our program with any pull that would want him in? Gundy maybe?

To keep from pitting one generation against the other, maybe they should rotate the eras for each year for a while. There is no way to compare what one did in the 60s or before with what someone has done now. It is a different game and a different program. Would be easier to evaluate their merit when taken in context with the game and program at the time.

And Waldorf's biggest success came elsewhere, right? Was good at Oklahoma A&M, but earned his CFB HOF creds elsewhere? (Guess I could look it up...)

From 1929 to 1933 Waldorf went 34–10–7, winning three Missouri Valley Conference championships. He never lost to Oklahoma, with the Cowboys holding their arch-rivals scoreless for 19 quarters in a row. Pretty good run.

Lots of people mentioning Weeden and few mentioning Rudolph. Mason is the one with most of the school passing records. His best years were better than Weeden's best years.

I would be in favor of inducting one living and one deceased for a few years. Maybe O'Neal and Fenimore next year.

Hill’s not even a consideration, in the least.

Tim to move on.

I think easy ones and the next ones should be:

- Fenimore
- O'Neal

Tyreek Hill does not deserve being in this conversation in my opinion. Only one year and left the program due to domestic assault on his girlfriend. Not "ring of honor material" in my opinion.

According to Wikipedia:

Domestic assault conviction
Stillwater police records indicate that on December 12, 2014, Hill was arrested on complaints of assault of his 20-year-old pregnant girlfriend, Crystal Espinal. The police report states that the two got into an argument and he threw her around "like a ragdoll", punched her in the face, sat on her and repeatedly punched her in the stomach, and choked her. Oklahoma State dismissed him from the football team after the charges.

Hill eventually pleaded guilty to domestic assault and battery by strangulation and was sentenced to three years of probation, an anger-management course, a year-long batterer's program, and was required to undergo a domestic-abuse evaluation.
