Coach Mike Gundy and running back Chuba Hubbard got together after Hubbard tweeted that he wouldn't do anything with Oklahoma State until things changed in posting Gundy wearing an OAN shirt.
Afterwards Hubbard said he went about the situation the wrong way by tweeting.
Sports Illustrated host Robin Lundberg believes Hubbard has nothing to apologize for.
Chuba Hubbard has nothing to apologize for. Not to Mike Gundy, not to Oklahoma State.
If he didn’t speak up in the first place, the issue may have gone unaddressed completely.
This of course after Hubbard stated he wouldn’t have anything to do with the school in posting a picture of his coach wearing an OAN T-Shirt. To be clear, this really is not about anybody’s shirt, it’s about people standing up to a certain mentality. And of course knowing things that are said on that network, it’s natural Hubbard would feel a way, especially when it is being worn by the coach he is playing for every day.
We see more and more sports figures refusing to let this moment pass, but one change this situation is already representative of is college athletes speaking out, as the power structure, especially when it comes to coaches at major universities has made that challenging. But Hubbard’s tweet certainly got Mike Gundy’s attention and the attention of Oklahoma State.
So while I hope something productive comes from them getting together, one thing is for sure, Chuba Hubbard isn’t the one who should’ve apologized.
