This, My Friends, Is A Rant

Oklahoma State's coach celebrates a victory over Texas Tech by calling out a columnist that wrote a negative column about his quarterback. And I do mean called out. Hard.

Edit: It finally dawned on me that a "slow clap" kind of broke out there at the end.

Edit: And this is the object of the coach's disdain.

Edit: Her response is here.

I read the article, it is not the first time a sports columnist has pegged a showboating college athlete as a slacker, prima donna.

I have ALWAYS thought there was SOMETHING more than a wee bit off about people who consider the colour orange to be an acceptable fashion choice.

Finally........somebody stands up and says what so many of us think. As a parent, of High School students, I know far to well about ADULTS (?) who come to athletic events and take every chance possible to belittle the players and coaches. Keep in mind, the next time you attend a High School sporting event, that the people you are criticizing are someone's children, grandchildren, or even spouses. Also remember that those children are 15,16, and 17 years old doing the best they can do. The coaches are sons, daughters, husbands, wives, moms and dads working with High School students.

Note to self:
Don't yell at that hard working coach that is cussing my 17 year old son and jerking him around by his face mask! Are you kidding me!
The OSU coach is 100% correct, the Fighting Irish coach is the perfect example of a LOSER. Get the picture!

He stood up for his team and defended his player. I have to respect that and him...more than before the incident...and I hate Oklahoma...

Well, Denney, it is Oklahoma State, not OU. OSU has good people, as well as T Boone Pickens bestowing gifts on them. But I agree, I admire the coach for standing up for his player. You wouldn't see Bob Stoops doing that - he'd be the one yelling at the kid.

There are good people all over the USA. But I don't discriminate against any Oklahoma colleges...I hate them all... Theiving ba$tard$ wouldn't have 2 colleges in the whole state if they didn't steal from Texas!

Besides, every Okie in the state drives slow in the left hand lane...must be cause they have no place to go or they just don't care about getting there...

Now who looks like the little kid throwing a temper tantrum?

Admire the coach for standing up...really? I thought his response was more like that of a high school coach. You shouldn't unload on the local paper like that at a big-time college football program. Division 1 schools and their quarterbacks are going to have some negative press from time to time. Grow up & deal with it. When you give that much power to the sportswriter, you've made a mistake.

Gotta tell ya, the tension here in Stillwater is thick today. Most people think he was technically "right" in his opinion, but boy he looked like a total dumb*ss on the teevee...and I think Oklahoma is fed up with idiots being the mouthpieces of our state.

I loved it. The ignorant media should at least get the facts straight if they are going to print negative articles. I think the coach is a hero for standing up for what he believed no matter the consequences. After all they are all just kids who are getting an education and Oklahoma needs more people to speak for them just like that. Greatness.

Ha! I just read that some clever Oklahomans want Tshirts that say, "I'm a man! I'm 40!"

What? Our media printing things that aren't correct? Right on, coach. I'm sick of our stupid media (who incorrectly refer to themselves as "journalists"), who could care less about accuracy.

Agree with 6:46. I think the OSU coach suffers from playing too many years in the shadow of OU and let a lot of his pent up frustration run a little wild. It would be different if the OSU QB had some "special" problems or physical disabilities---then such reaction probabally would be totally justified.

That's terrific. Good for the coach; sometimes, the media needs a comeuppance for their comments, off-editing and Mean Girl tone.

I get really tired of people finding grammatical fault like prizes are being given. I am a teacher. What would I rather see out of a student? Perfect grammar or critical thinking...critical thinking, of course. Big picture: In this situation, the guy spoke from his heart. He was pissed and he communicated his sentiments clearly and effectively even with his "ain't" that he threw in there. People need to listen or read what others are trying to communicate rather than sit around and find fault in the nuts and bolts. People who sit around looking for faults are a total a$$ whipping to be around. I will say also that teachers can be the worst ones!
