Womens Desmond Trufant Jersey
Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy has some thoughts about This Generation. They’re about players transferring Womens Matt Bryant Jersey , and they’re what you’d expect to hear from someone who acts like he had to trudge to school uphill both ways in the snow. A transcript, after Gundy was asked a question about safety Thabo Mwaniki leaving the Cowboys, and responded to a follow-up with: Putting aside that Gundy’s generation raised the one he’s so adamant about criticizing, he thinks today’s young people are entitled, noncommittal, and a byproduct of liberalism. They don’t want to go through tough times, he thinks. They just want to run from them. Mwaniki is leaving for playing time, according to Gundy. “Doing the basic math, it’ll give him a better chance to play somewhere else with the young guys that are in the program,” Gundy said. The coach then launched into his thoughts when asked a follow-up about if this generation is different. The other player he mentioned, receiver Jalen McCleskey, transferred earlier in the season. Gundy threatened to pull media access from reporters who asked about his exit. Thinking pragmatically about your future makes you a snowflake in 2018 Womens att Bosher Jersey , but it didn’t in 1986, when Gundy was beginning his college career. You may know him as a former Oklahoma State quarterback and Cowboy lifer, but Gundy wasn’t that until he decommitted from rival Oklahoma.In hindsight, it was the right move to be literally noncommittal when he was a teenager in the mid-1980s, just like it is for any Generation Z’er/millennial to consider their own best course of action now. That’s exactly what Gundy did in the ‘80s. He said in 2016 that he “felt like my best chance to get on the field early” was at Oklahoma State.He specifically worried about sitting behind QB Jamelle Holieway, he told the Tulsa World in 2012: That same article notes that when Gundy was a kid, his father pushed him to keep wrestling even though he wanted to quit, so Gundy kept wrestling. Gundy probably got these notions about toughness and sticking things out from his father. But later on, the newspaper reported, Gundy quit playing college baseball when a coach suggested he wouldn’t be a starter on the team and should lean into football full-time. It appears being “noncommittal” isn’t such a bad thing when Gundy’s filling holes in his roster with transfers from elsewhere. Oklahoma State has 18 transfers on its roster right now. Many of them came from junior colleges, but a few left other FBS programs to go straight to Stillwater. Those include the Pokes’ second-leading receiver, Tyron Johnson (from LSU) , cornerback Kemah Siverand (from Texas A&M) and defensive tackle Enoch Smith Jr. (who didn’t play football the year he sat out after leaving Michigan State). Johnson, for instance, came to OSU in search of a better scheme fit, and Gundy didn’t call him a snowflake or turn him away. If Gundy is so ardent about the state of the transfer market, why’s he so willing to be complicit in it? If he really wanted to make a point about not coddling a generation and be a leader for the values he spoke about so strongly, why does he allow his team to have players on it who didn’t want “to be really tough and fight through it.”If Gundy wanted, he could say that he won’t take transfers, because he clearly doesn’t believe in the mentality they promote. But he doesn’t, because it benefits him to take players like Johnson, Siverand, and Smith, who have perfectly fine reasons for transferring.It’s because Gundy’s logic doesn’t have a leg to stand on when you really pick it apart.It appears “going to try something else” isn’t so bad when coaches do it.During the 2012 coaching cycle Womens Desmond Trufant Jersey , Gundy almost left Stillwater for Tennessee, in his own retelling. Part of his rationale was that playing kickoff classics against big-name opponents made it harder for him to win a national title, so Gundy was lying to recruits by telling them they could win one, and he “needed to go somewhere else.”In 2017, three days after Gundy said he was “rooted” at Oklahoma State and that his “stability here is more than it ever has been,” he flew to Dallas to meet with Tennessee again about its vacant head coaching position. He didn’t take the job either time, but he did get pretty far down the road twice. He’s also reportedly talked with Baylor in the past, in secret, and been connected to the Arkansas job, too. And if you’re playing along at home, all three of those schools were ones that Gundy initially blocked former quarterback Wes Lunt from transferring to back in 2013. Changing teams is not about being a snowflake or running at the first sign of hardship. It’s often about being a responsible adult. Those are the things Gundy’s actions may teach his players now, even though his words don’t.Contract talks with Falcons DT Grady Jarrett on hold If you’re looking for the Atlanta Falcons to extend Grady Jarrett past his 2018 contract Youth Logan Paulsen Jersey , you might want to get comfortable. Jason Butt of The Athletic reports that GM Thomas Dimitroff has indicated that talks are on hold with Jarrett for now. So, for now, things are tabled for Jarrett getting a new extension. No doubt Los Angeles Rams star DT Aaron Donald getting a fresh paycheck doesn’t help matters, though Jarrett’s eventual deal will come in short of that mark. We’ll see what the future holds for Jarrett getting paid. He could make anywhere from $12-17 million a season with the market as it is for defensive tackles, and his management might want him to put on some strong 2018 tape to drive that number up from where Dimitroff and company might be at the moment. Watch for November. The Falcons extended both T Ryan Schraeder and CB Robert Alford around that time in 2016, and we could see Dimitroff angle for that once more. The team didn’t have any major re-signings to take care of in March for guys with expiring contracts, so that could be when we see Jarrett’s deal get taken care of. The team will get this one done, we think, and it’s just a matter of when. Don’t worry about it unless we hear rumbles of unrest later in the year.
