Mike Gundy decries ease of CFB transfers, citing ‘liberalism’

By Jesse Reed

Oklahoma State head football coach Mike Gundy is clearly not a fan of the new college football transfer rules that benefit student-athletes.

On Monday, he absolutely blasted the new process, citing “liberalism” while saying, “I’m a firm believer in the snowflake.”

“I think we live in a world where people are non-committal,” Gundy said, per Nathan Ruiz of The Oklahoman. “We allow liberalism to say, ‘Hey, I can just do what I want and I don’t really have to be tough and fight through it.’ You see that with young people because it’s an option they’re given. WE weren’t given that option when we were growing up. We were told what to do, and we did it the right way, or you go figure it out on your own. In the world today, There’s a lot of entitlement. I’m a firm believer in the snowflake.”

Gundy went on to say he’s not talking about Thabo Mwanki, who announced his decision to transfer on Sunday. Instead, he took aim at “every millennial young person, Generation Z. I think is what they call ’em.”

Somehow, these comments aren’t the least bit surprising. Though one wonders if Jim Harbaugh and Shea Patterson would agree.
