Should Mike Gundy just stick to coaching?

Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy had an eventful teleconference with the press, criticizing the media for their coverage of the coronavirus and stating he plans to start his football program on May 1, defying many stay-at-home orders across the country. Many feel that Gundy is being irresponsible by putting his players at risk and needs to just worry about coaching when it is safe to do so. Others think Gundy should be able to say what he feels like everyone else. What do you think? 🏈

So Mike Gundy, a mullet-toting head coach, became a media and medical expert? Stay in your lane, dude.

Just because your multimillion-dollar salary is safe it doesn't mean you should be risking unpaid players' lives by defying stay-at-home orders. People want their college football, but they don't want people to die if it returns too early. Use your platform to promote the safety of these players instead of advocating for putting them in danger.

Stick to coaching, Gundy.

There's nothing wrong with being optimistic and that's all Gundy was doing. He is still planning on his program to run May 1 and that's okay. If the virus isn't clear by then, he can push it back with no problems.

Gundy is allowed to have a little faith that humanity can beat this illness sooner rather than later and he should be able to say it if he feels like it. People need to get off of his back.
