“I stand with him!” Ogbongbemiga tweeted.
As did offensive lineman Treven Jenkins: “As an O-line we stand and support Chuba.”
Since taking up this system in 2005, Gundy had a 129-64 general report with one Large 12 title. He just lately described the controversial content material of OAN as “refreshing.”
A number of hours later, Hubbard posted a video of himself with Gundy, and a caption that learn: “Change is coming I promise you that.”
“In light of today’s tweet with the t-shirt I was wearing, I met with some players, and I realized it’s a very sensitive issue with what’s going on in today’s society,” Gundy mentioned. “And so, we had a great meeting. And made aware of some things that players feel like that can make our organization, our culture even better than it is here at Oklahoma State. And I’m looking forward to making some changes, and it starts at the top with me. And we got good days ahead.”

“I’ll start off by first saying that I went about it the wrong way by tweeting,” Hubbard added. “I’m not someone that has to tweet something to make change. I should have went to him as a man, and I’m more about action. That was bad on my part. But from now on, we’re going to focus on bringing change. And that’s the most important thing.”
