You may recall that last fall, Sports Illustrated did a five-part investigation into Oklahoma State football. Well, as a result, head football coach Mike Gundy probably doesn't think much of anyone at that publication these days, and made that abundantly clear during his post-game press conference after his team's 41-31 loss to Missouri in Friday night's Cotton Bowl.
Via our friends at Crystal Ball Run:
When a Sports Illustrated reporter asked him if the Cowboys had prepared for both Missouri quarterbacks, Gundy asked him to identify himself again. When he said he was from Sports Illustrated, Gundy responded with “Sweet. That’s awesome.”
He then added, “Make sure you document this so you have all your research and your background.”
Ouch. Here's the video via Fox 23 Tulsa:
That could have been a reference to the fact that there were many holes in SI's story. Then again, we don't know why Gundy is still so upset - he said the investigation actually helped recruiting, increased national exposure, and the NCAA is even keeping their proverbial hammer in a lock box. So, what's the problem, Mike?
@awfulannouncing Is this a "story"? Must be slow at AA, what a let down.
@BobBakken if you knew anything about the story & the paper Carlson worked for, you'd understand that bs "reporting" like that is tasteless
@BobBakken maybe if Carlson didn't do a pitiful job of "reporting", Gundy wouldn't have had to set her straight. OSU applauds him for that
