Gundy speaks, says ‘I want this to end'

From Staff and Wire Reports Published: September 29, 2007
In a radio interview Friday on WWLS, Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy said he has no regrets defending quarterback Bobby Reid and wants to move past his well-publicized post-game rant that has drawn national attention.

Gundy didn't talk about the game after OSU's 49-45 win over Texas Tech last Saturday. His entire, 3-minute, 30-second, post-game speech was aimed at The Oklahoman's Jenni Carlson and the newspaper for her column on Reid, who was replaced as the starting quarterback.

He said it's the last time he will discuss the incident and is surprised how much publicity it has received. He said he's been swamped with calls and e-mails.

"There's been so many responses,” Gundy said. "I'm not trying to win a political race. I want this to end. I appreciate all the support. You want people to know the guy is not completely out of his mind.”

Gundy said he has not seen video of his post-game outburst in its entirety. He reiterated he has no ill will toward Carlson or the newspaper.

He said one lesson he has learned is to say, "No comment” on subjects he cannot address. He said he's also heard from media members who believe the hot-button topic could lead to a healthy debate on how collegiate athletes should be treated by the media.

Gundy has turned down numerous interviews, including several national television outlets.
