When did this little fark youtube viewer thing come around?

Boone Pickens may be brilliant with gas, oil etc... but he is horrible at picking college football coaches.

Someone needs to let Gundy know that this is Division One football. It's the Big Twelve. It ain't intramurals.
 
2007-09-24 02:41:44 PM
Gundy is a terrible coach and Pickens would do well to fire his ass right now.

Jesus tap-dancing Christ people, how hard is it to post a link to the referred article when you put it on youtube or, heaven forbid, even put it in the video itself?

This little tirade is worthless without the text of the article.

And the YouTube comments are almost better than the video.

This is green again? For people who aren't familiar with the situation, I'll repost my comments from the earlier thread.

Nate57Dawg
OSU graduate here. For everyone who's confused:

1. OSU quarterback Bobby Reid has bad games against Georgia and Florida Atlantic. He goes out with an injury in the 2nd Quarter against FAU. Zac Robinson replaces him and leads the offense in a dominating victory.

2. Robinson starts the next week against Troy and again against Texas Tech. Reid is benched.

3. Jenni Carlson writes an article, not criticizing Reid's on field play, but, citing rumor and innuendo, criticizes his character.

4. Mike Gundy rightfully shouts her down publicly.

Seeing this video makes me proud to be an OSU fan. I was starting to worry that Gundy wasn't a passionate coach who could inspire passion in his players. Now I know that is the farthest thing from the truth, and I feel a lot better about having him as our coach. GO POKES.


Gundy had to publicly set the record straight because his player was publicly attacked. The reporter wasn't criticizing the player's on field play, she was only spreading rumor.

What's there to "suck" about it? It simply links to a bare-bones YouTube embedded video where you just click 'play.' The exact same as if you just linked through to YouTube only without the inane comments.

But if you really want the comments, you can still click on the video like you've always been able to do.

Certainly my opinion isn't unbiased, but instead of pointing out what was incorrect about my comments, you insulted me personally and where I went to school. You sound really credible.

What fancy big-time university awarded you your degree, and how does that make you better than me?

Please.

He's lucky the reporters didn't get up and leave after the first five seconds. You don't yell and scream like an out-of-control lunatic at the entire press core when someone publishes something you didn't agree with.

In fact, most of the reporters probably only stayed to hear him hang himself with this little rant and to get the good quotes.

There have been very few high-profile coaches that have come out ahead after tangling with the media. Mike Gundy isn't going to be one of them.

Did he overreact? Sure. But if you don't understand how a football coach can get emotional if one of his kids is attacked with LIES then you clearly never played football beyond pee wee level. He had to say SOMETHING. How does it look to potential recruits if the media publishes lies about the program's players and the coach does nothing. If I had children, Mike Gundy is the type of coach I would want them playing for.

Tirades are best when directed at the team, and are much more amusing. Bill Callahan's "Dumbest Team in America" speech is a moving tribute to an inept organization, and a great example of how a coach should freak out.

no. "bare-bones" would be opening a new window like all the other articles... it's annoying and all it's done is make me less likely to click on the video links.

i'll get over it, though.

Oh, come on. Did OSU teach you to be humorless as well? If you can't take a ribbing from an OU grad, you might want to visit a snark-free site. Maybe Sesame Street has a forum for comments.

Sorry, I'm recalibrating my snark detector at the moment. I get touchy about that kind of ribbing sometimes. Bad childhood experience.

Interestingly enough, Stoops defended Gundy in his teleconference today.
 
2007-09-24 03:38:43 PM
Around here (southern Oklahoma) Jenni Carlson - author of the article in question - is widely regarded as a subpar columnist who relies on puff pieces to keep herself employed. Looks like that entire article is based on two instances - the chicken thing and an ill-timed laugh on the sidelines. Oh - and a 21-year old admitting he gets jittery before playing in front of 50,000 people. The rest is just fabricated nonsense and speculation. That being said, Gundy didn't do his team any favors by wagging a sports section into the press conference after what should have been a celebration of a hard-fought victory, and screaming at a hack journalist for three minutes. There are better, more mature ways a "40 year old man" could have handled the situation. On one hand I'm glad he's running a hard line at OSU and standing up for the players who aren't causing trouble (Something I'm not sure Les Miles would have done), but on the other, now this is what he'll be remembered for. A breathless rant ala Booby Knight.

Thanks for the link; I'd been in meetings all morning and hadn't seen Stoops' comments. And btw, I'm not saying Carlson isn't a hack; I'm saying Gundy acted like a baby.

Well, that AND snarking an OSU grad, but that's just for sh*ts and giggles... no harm intended.

He should have done what 99.9% of the rest of the coaches out there does when this happens - they address their team and let it go. Perhaps they talk to the reporter/editor, but most likely not.

As a head coach of a large Division I, I'm sorry - Football Bowl Subdivision football team you never fly off the handle and attack the media like that, even if you're right.

That a sure way to an early contract buyout.

I'm totally serious. Football is boring. It is geared toward empty headed numskulls. It drains funding from schools. A "football coach" is nothing more than an overpaid blow hard. Every football player I've ever met was a prick. After hearing about one minute of that audio, he sounds like a farking lunatic Pentecostal minister who, for the most part, are farking hicks. Hicks are ignorant people. He's a hick. I hate him. Fark him.

I can easily see how it could be perceived that way. I'd like to think of it as a calculated move to ignite some passion in his players (something that was severely lacking against Troy).

Wow. You're so brilliant and insightful. I never understood why people don't like football and your penetrating syllogism has made me see the light.

There may be some second-hand rumors in that column, but I don't see anything that's patently false. What LIES are you speaking of? Reid IS perceived as soft and coddled, and Gundy's Helen Lovejoy routine only solidifies that reputation.

I'd like to think of it as a calculated move to ignite some passion in his players

Immediately AFTER a big win over Tech? C'mon now. If they still need to have their passion ignited at that point, it's more than just Reid who is soft.

Wrong. D-I football programs make fistfuls of money for their universities. Period. Especially in this instance. Go read up on Boone Pickens, then come back here with your tail between your legs, Nancy-boy.

Male athletics do make a TON of money for schools. Even with the millions we are giving Stoops and his support staff OU is make a ton off the Sooner's football program. Now if we could just figure out that game called basketball.......

Proud that Gundy stood up for his player. Just wished he had shown more skill and class.


Ok, I am now done talking well of him .....

BOOMER!!

Yeah...perhaps, in the future, if you have a problem with someone Mr. Coach, you could try discussing it in a rational adult manner.

I love how all the football wastoids in this thread are going on about how he 'stepped up for his poor widdle special snowflake players' or 'went to war' for them. Here's a thought, maybe if you act like a reasonable human being, people will find less to mock about you.

Seriously, I don't care who you are, throwing a temper tantrum in a public setting? Makes it pretty clear that you, and anyone associated with you, is probably a useless human being.

All the guys talking about how he 'stepped up' are probably sad he didn't really 'show that biatch who the man is'.

Although I hear the player in question was so grateful he 'gave 110%' in the shower later that night. Knowing that coach 'had his back' really made it possible for him to 'take one for the team'.
 
2007-09-24 05:52:11 PM
It is obvious that anyone ragging on Gundy for this has never read anything out of the Daily Oklahoman sports page and especially nothing by Carlson. Her entire career is built on fellating the OU staff and players and taking cheap shots at OSU -- and she's been doing it week-in and week-out for about a decade now. It's high time somebody called her out for her BS.

Way to make the player look like a real man. His mommy and his coach had to come to his defense. Sounds like the reporter may have been right.

If his teammates didn't hate him before, they will now. Nothing like being a momma's boy and having to have adults stand up for you to gain the respect of your team.
