Mike Holder critiqued Mike Gundy’s recruiting philosophy last month. Gundy’s defenders went berserk. Gundy’s detractors went berserk. Gundy himself? “I knew exactly what he was trying to say,” the Oklahoma State coach said of the OSU athletic director Tuesday during Big 12 Media Days. “It didn’t bother me for a second. Not at all. Gundy said he told Holder as much. “He was very apologetic,” Gundy revealed. “I said, ‘Coach, I know what you were trying to accomplish. You don’t have to worry about me.’ But it’s difficult to say the right thing all the time.” Gundy, as OSU’s CEO, grows them. Some years he must cultivate a little more firmly, directly. The Cowboys have a new quarterback, new emerging receivers and linemen, new leaders and a new defensive coordinator. This is one of those years. Gundy can’t have the desired impact if he is sidetracked, whether by injuries, depth chart uncertainty or sniping with his administration.  – Guerin Emig, tulsaworld – Read More
