NORMAN — Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy recently announced that he’ll no longer discuss any player injuries.

Sooners coach Bob Stoops was asked about Gundy’s new policy during his Monday news conference.

“I like his policy,” Stoops said. “I’ve never addressed it when I thought a guy had an opportunity to play.”

Stoops repeated what he’s said in the past: He doesn’t want his players’ weaknesses out there for opponents to exploit.

“If a guy’s been out, I’ve been pretty pretty forthcoming about saying he’s out,” Stoops said.

“I don’t know that I’ll change that right now, but I’ll see how it goes for Mike.”

Two weeks ago, Stoops also said he thinks going too public with injury reporting contributes to gambling on college sports; “I don’t believe in that,” he said then.

“I say to heck with them.”
