Why was it EVER an issue?

Meet privately with Gundy if you have a problem with a t-shirt he's wearing.

Holy ####. What are they trying to prove? How tough they are?

Give me a break.

The star of the team, the guy who lead the nation in rushing called his coach out for saying OAN reports the news without commentary.

Both of these things will make news.

Don’t know what that means - to clarify, who do you think Democrats think are all racists?

I don't give a #### what he did on the field. This was about a ####### t-shirt.

It was disrespectful & the sign of the times.

if you meet with Gundy & still believe there's issues, then rail on him.

Otherwise, you're part of the problem.

Hey, Sherlock.

I don't put anyone on ignore, but at the same time, I'm not addressing you further.

You’re darn right it’s disrespectful. By Gundy. He’s the problem. 
 

He needs to publicly apologize. If he doesn't the school probably should suspend him.

You asked why is this news. It’s news because the leading rusher in the nation said he’s not showing up.

This whole thing played out perfectly fine.  I can’t for the life of me see what happened here that you think is so dramatic.

Player sees his coach saying some crazy stuff about some bat#### conspiracy theory “news site”. Player tweets about it. Coach meets with player. Player says “we cool”.

Isn’t this what happened? That’s what I read.

I feel like we are reading two different accounts of what occurred here.

I’m honestly surprised that these players bought back in so quickly but they have a relationship this guy so you have to trust their judgement.

Sounds like Hubbard is ok with it & they worked it out (from what I heard).

Think he still should be suspended?

Got it - you want to accuse all Democrats of thinking some category of people you fall in to to be racist but you don’t want to say what the group is.  Why should anybody engage you further?

They bought back in because it's nonsense.

Maybe this is a good lesson for them.

Don't run your mouth before you find out all the details.

Trashing someone on Twitter, especially NOW, has consequences (for the trashee).

Wake up & smell the coffee, Hubbard.

I suppose they both learned learned that you need to be aware that social media will put a lot of eyes on you.

You think Gundy is going to be talking about OAN with the team? Sharing articles?

You must obey & get reprimanded. LOL

Hubbard is supposedly into this movement BIG-TIME, right? Tough on BLM.

if so, & he's ok with Gundy, why did he spout off in the first place & make him look bad?

It's the 'me' mentality. Did Hubbard even stop to think? Or did he just react like he's been taught? No checks, no balances.

Speaking about the importance of a ####### t-shirt.

Gundy once fired a contractor for wearing an OU Sooners shirt on his property.

I’d guess it was hearing his coach say he watched OAN because they report the news without commentary. As I said before that is a laughably stupid comment. I would be disappointed to find out someone I respected said that. 

But TBH who knows what else was going on. I don’t. You certainly don’t seem to either.

Regardless it seems to be a pretty insignificant story.

Fair enough. It does seem to be getting sensationalized or spotlit because of what’s going on right now.

Social media, generating clicks, news media for profit certainly presents a whole boatload of issues that we do seem to be struggling with.

Well, I'm sure he wishes he never would've worn it.

Hate to think of the problems Gundy could have over something like this. He mentioned he found it due to COVID.

If you disagree with him, that's fine, but this is going to paint him in a certain light. From what I know about Gundy, if he's a racist, he's not very good at it.

Really disappointing (par for the course).

The player met with him and felt good with what he heard from the guy.

But yeah that explanation was pretty ridiculous.

No you don’t. The only reason OSU has had any success at all is because one rich businessman decided to buy himself a college football team. And even then your success has been moderate at best. I don’t like Phil Knight either but at least he’s gotten a bang for his buck.

You saying OSU cheats?

Who's your team? I'm pretty sure Cali teams are getting their ### handed to them.

UCLA. We haven’t cheated since the 90s. That’s why we suck.

Nobody expected that to be a big deal. He was from Cerritos but the Sooners had him run the wishbone so I thought he was a running guy. I really wanted Rodney Peete who ended up at USC. 
 

Aikman was great at UCLA but not nearly as great as he should have been. Terry Donahue failed to stretch the field. He wasn’t used properly. And he lost to the Trojans twice. Cade McNown had a better career at UCLA- too bad he was such a dbag.

It IS ironic that after Aikman left OU to go to UCLA, they had their best option QB ever- Holloway- who was from Los Angeles.

The Sooners had Aikman running the wishbone. Just thought I'd repeat that.

Honestly, I'm not sure why he signed other than playing at Henryetta, OK.

Crazy thing is that's kinda the boonies. I forget why he moved there specifically, but looks like he would've went to Broken Arrow, Jenks, or Union (powerhouse Oklahoma teams) for a better chance at getting noticed.

I guess it worked out.

With Marcus Dupree leaving OU early, Switzer switched from the I formation back to the wishbone, IIRC.

A Jerome Brown sack broke Aikman's ankle setting in motion the transfer to UCLA and a HOF career. In that game, Aikman played against his future coach, Jimmy, and his future #1 target, Michael Irwin. OU went undefeated from 1985 to 1987, minus the 3 losses to the U.

This is correct. The offense at OU was formatted to fit Holloway after Aikman went down. He wasn't recruited to run the wishbone.  He transferred because Switzer wasn't going back after he saw what he had.  

 

Good post.  :thumbup:

And lol @ casually stumbling upon OAN one day and being so immediately impressed by their objective news reporting absent any commentary that you were so moved to not only purchase but proudly wear their t-shirt for photo ops with your buds.

There are a lot of really important battleground states that Trump needs to win again this November. Have we discussed the efficacy of opening rally season in a state he won by 37 points?

Will this be carried live on Fox News and other stations?  I'm sure the ratings will be decent.  Hell, I might even watch it.

And, of course, there aren't many places that would allow a rally like this to happen.  Only the reddest of states.
