Who are the friends of Oklahoma State football?

    Gundy has banned most of the media from practice, except friends of the program. I would assume that any member of the media who still has access is a tool.

    You have to be in your 40s and be a man.

    I think we've had the convo here on USC (Southern Cal vs. South Carolina) but in no way in my world is OSU Oklahoma State. I didn't click on this when I first saw it because I didn't care who was friends with Ohio State.

    Regionalism. Yay!

    Which is worse? The predictable whining of man-boy Gundy (but hey, he IS a man ... he's 41 now) or the whiny fan-boi comments at the end of the story (from the same people who will bitch if there is nothing in the paper, but say that keeping the media out is best for the team and something they support)?

    This guy is a joke. I live in the heart of Big 12 country. Gundy gets snickered at by, oh, everyone outside of Stillwater.

    Thing is, if O(klahoma)SU is as good as predicted, that show will be nationwide.

    Friends of the program = those approved by Mike Gundy

    Just another "us against the world" ploy by a coach who is shit-scared of anything he cannot control.

    Also thought this thread was about Ohio State. Read the name Gundy and got confused for a few seconds.

    Is the newspaper there still providing OSU coverage?

    Once Gundy issued his little Hitleresque edict, I would have ended all OSU football reporting until things changed. You don't want us there? Fine. You don't get anything in our newspaper or our Web site.

    Easier said than done... Do you really want to do anything else to lose possible readers?

    I'm just curious what media members are on Gundy's good list. I think it's illegal to allow access to some media members but not others, so he has to either kick them all out or let them all watch.
