Has anybody else heard the rant Pat Jones is going on about just now? It sounds pretty crazy to me, but he keeps saying that he’s in the know with the current situation & has inside information.
This is a general summarization (maybe someone can get the audio), but he’s essentially made these points:
Holder is intentionally coming after Gundy & the football program in general because he’s jealous & has never been a “revenue motivated guy”.
Several football staff members are actively looking to find work elsewhere.
Karsten Creek is “an albatross around OSU’s neck” that has been bleeding money for years & was never needed in the first place.
O’Brate Stadium & the new baseball facilities are a huge waste of money that was largely funded by emergency / rainy day funds. That again, was never needed in the first place (apparently Allie P. was sufficient to his standards of facilities?).
Is this as simple as a grumpy, old football coach who doesn’t give a rat’s a$$ about any sports outside of the one he made his living in? I feel like his opinions are incredibly out of touch with the OSU fanbase. Certainly football has become king over the last decade or so, but I feel like most fans still care about other sports, ie: golf, baseball, wrestling, men’s basketball.
