Rather than talk about the game, Gundy launched into a 3 1/2 minute tirade over some unfavorable press coverage one of his players had received in the Oklahoman ; a local paper. (In her piece, the reporter, Jenni Carlson , questioned why player Bobby Reid had been demoted as the team's starting quarterback.)*
"If anybody hasn't read this article," Gundy began as he held up a copy of the Oklahoman's sports page, "I think this is worth reading. Three-fourths of this is inaccurate. It's fiction. And this article embarrasses me to be involved with athletics.
"That article had to have been written by a person that doesn't have a child. And has never had a child that has had their heart broken and come home upset and had to deal with a child when he is upset. And kick a person when he's down."
It is yet another inappropriate display of emotion -- a temper tantrum -- that is making its way across the Internet.
Clearly, Gundy is in dire need of anger management counseling. (We're not quite sure how this presentation was intended to diffuse the situation or change the media's perception of the underlying report. If anything, it has drawn national attention to the Carlson article and has likely made a bad situation worse.)
