Im sure a $1M paycut would make me humble......

I think Gundy will be judged by his actions and not the balance in his checking account. What was OSU thinking this would solve?

Gundy seems like the type that will retire early. He's got a small hobby farm, hunts, fishes, I just see him hanging it up in a few years. Honestly I'm surprised more coaches don't.

Solve? Nothing, but does helps with their budget problem, the $$$ issue all of the school will be struggling with this season. Arizona coaches took a 20% pay cut. More schools are going to have to follow suit. Going to be interesting since coaches are fat cat CEO's of college sports and have just been getting paid more and more and more every year. We have a national recession but it may be a true depression for college sports. The CEO's of P5 shouldn't be exempt from the pain (but they will be, mostly).

BTW, I've always though Gundy was a simple minded *******. Seems like the kind of guy that would go immediately to throwdown over a door scratch in a parking lot.

Yeah, seems like a budget cutting measure disguised as a penalty (mostly).

But I've also seen that he's willing to throw down for his players. That goes a long ways. We've seen a lot of coaches not ashamed of throwing their players under the bus. I'll take his attitude over that any day.

Very wise move. They were expecting budget cuts anyway. He gave in, the university gave in, the players gave in. I wish more issues could be resolved this way.

More issues resolved in a way that fundamentally nothing probably changed?

I think this is more COVID related than anything but it’ll give Okie State some good publicity
Surprised that Okie State has money issues with all the T Boone money but I suppose they spend like the money will never run out.

A lot of what Boone gave to OSU got put right back into Boone's hedge funds -- which took a couple of big hits in the last decade or so before he shut them down in 2018. So OSU might not have gained a whole lot of ground on the initial donation amounts.
