Hey y’all, I’ve shied away from talking much on here or answering questions regarding the Gundy/OAN T-shirt incident. But I’ve been reflecting on it the last few weeks and finally wrote about it on the site.
You can probably tell I am ready to move on from it, based on my recent silence on the subject. But I want to be transparent about the experience and put a bow on things before we do, so I’m happy to answer any questions you might have.
What’s your solution to the growing immigration problem at the border?
Do you think racism is bad?
Should Gundy recruit in the top 25?
Do you think @Carlfromwork’s words are too longified?
Is @leecothranreally a jerk?
How many ‘nice reply’ badges have you earned?
Sorry, I ask the tough, hard hitting questions America really wants to know.
(nice article though, well written, and hopefully the morons who just need someone to hate, and base their existance off of that will now hush)
I did not get any formal feedback from the athletics department. However, I did contact them for comment on the day the OAN shirt hit the fan, and the spokesman I talked with – who is usually long-winded and gracious with their time – was completely exasperated. Talked for 20 seconds. It’s been a really hectic few months at OSU between the NCAA ruling, Gundy drama earlier this spring and now the OAN drama. So I could tell they weren’t super thrilled about it … but probably had a lot to do with crappy timing.
