Could it be Gundy actually has had a few humbling times in the last couple of weeks? Humble is not something that Gundy does often.

Gotta admit this isn't the crapstorm it started out to be.

Hoping he uses this time to reflect. Enough with all the media quirks, lock in on recruiting and the season.

Some times saying nothing is better than trying to say something that just doesn't come out right. . . .
I think this was a smart move. There were a lot of people, including some in our own fanbase, that assumed the issues were race related. It was important to publicly state that wasn't the case. I think our fanbase will forgive Coach Gundy for falling out of touch with his players as he gets older, but I don't think they would've ever forgiven him for racism.

It sure would be nice if some of the players would publicly echo these statements. That would go a long way towards repairing the damage that's been done to Coach Gundy & the football program.

This is a good thing for Gundy, the players and OSU. As things played out it looked like this was a communication issue and a relationship issue, not a race issue. Gundy is a smart guy and a good coach. He can fix this and I think he will. He has a very talented team and if they all grab an oar and row together good things can come out of this.

Maybe as a show of solidarity Gundy could take a page out of Sutton's book and go with the white boy fro.

Gundy has gotten complacent. This is a tremendous opportunity to tighten things up a bit. Won’t happen overnight but showing these kids you love them more than just showing you care for them will make this team closer. Close teams battle for championships
