Oklahoma State–Thank You Coach Gundy

September 26, 2007 at 12:56 pm (SPORTS)

A member of the media took cheap shots at a college athlete. Like a father protecting a son that he may scold in private, Oklahoma State Football Coach Mike Gundy fiercely defended his recently benched quarterback Bobby Reid.

    That was some tirade, huh? He’s a good guy and a good coach.

    Anyone who has played organized sports was cheering coach Gundy. I know I was. Did he go too far? Probably. Could it have been handled better? Probably. But it was refreshing to see that kind of support for a player, more so for a player you just benched. Coach Gundy just got the admiration of nearly every player, current, former, and future in just about every sport. This is a guy you want to play for, not because he could launch your career or showcase your talents, but because you know he is with you, and not just a baby sitter for you.

    I loved seeing someone stand up to those media bullies who think they are untouchable and above reproach. You should have heard the sports guys in Dallas talking like Coach Gundy “going off the deep end”. It just showed what a bunch of wussies these talking heads are. They like to criticize those willing to stand up to their cheap attacks and not afraid to take them head on. I guess these talk show hosts are bitter because they never had the talent or passion to actually be good at playing sports. I always heard the phrase that “those that can’t do coach”. I think that is not correct. I think it should be those who can’t do report on it.
