One of Ben Buie’s best mementos from his playing days at Oklahoma State was the ring he received for the 2004 Cotton Bowl against Ole Miss. Buie, a former center, broke his leg a few games before the bowl game, but he was still proud of what his team accomplished that year. That’s why he was so distraught when his ring was stolen from his home last year.

Buie and his wife had a laptop, watches, electronics, and the ring stolen from their home. They spent time looking for their stolen possessions on Craigslist but gave up after a while. Long after giving up on their search, Buie’s sister called to say she had found his Cotton Bowl ring on Craigslist.

The person selling the ring says he bought it for $300 from another man. He doesn’t want to give up the ring until he gets his money back.

The case will be heard in proprietary court, but even if Buie has to end up paying $300 for the ring, I’m sure he’ll just be happy to have it back. He should be thrilled; when it comes to theft, it could be much worse.

  • The guy that was selling the ring on craigslist should be arrested and charged with receiving stolen property and the ring returned to Mr. Buie. For Mr. Buie having to go to court to get the ring back because he is refusing to pay the $300 that was paid for a STOLEN RING is beyond comprehension.
  • Amen Brother! Maybe if he's charged he will give up the name of the person who sold it to him. More than likely that's who stole the ring in the first place.
  • "Agree w/ the FlunkyMonkey",Mr Blue should not have to pay the $300 bucks..Oklahoma State,should step in here and resolve this matter.."Hello"Aluni brothers"....Get it done...
