The State of Oklahoma, the holder of ball Chuba Hubbard, spoke about the controversy surrounding coach Mike Gundy and a photo of him wearing a jersey from One America News.
Hubbard was first tweeted his dissatisfaction with Gundy before the two found each other eventually and publish a statement to the joint video on the issue. On Tuesday, Hubbard issued a statement longer on the issue.

“I’m going to start by saying this; I’ve never been wrong to say what I said. I’m a man and I realized that I would have had to go and see him face-to-face rather than on Twitter. This is my opinion. But I had to hold him responsible anyway. I am happy that things have passed, as they have done because things are changing as we speak “, he wrote in a statement posted on Twitter.
“If someone knows me really, he knows that I am a very passionate person. I care about my family, my friends, my teammates and the people that I do not even know. I talked about it because I am exhausted emotionally and I’m tired of seeing things happen with no results or consequences. I realize that I have a platform to generate change, and I do my best to use it accordingly. ”

He continued: “I am a young black man who wants change. I want a change that will bring a better experience to you, my brothers and sisters black of Oklahoma State. It is so simple. ”
Hubbard has vowed that he will try to make changes “ALL THE DAYS” at school and in the world.
He added that “the good will”.
The controversy began on Monday after a picture appears to show Gundy in a shirt One America News.
“I will bear not. It is completely insensitive to everything that is going on in society, and it is unacceptable, ” wrote Hubbard on Twitter. “I wouldn’t do anything with Oklahoma State until things CHANGE. ”
Since he took over the program in 2005, Gundy had a record overall 129-64 with a title Big 12. He recently called the controversial content of NAO of “refreshing”.

A few hours later, Hubbard has posted a video of him with Gundy, and a caption that said: “change is coming, I promise you. ”
“In light of the tweet today with the T-shirt that I was wearing, I have met players and I have realized that it was a very sensitive problem with what was happening in the society today,” said Gundy. “And so, we had an excellent meeting. And aware of certain things which, according to the players, can make our organization, our culture even better than it is here at Oklahoma State. And I can’t wait to make a few changes, and it starts at the top with me. And we have beautiful days in front of us. ”
“I’m going to start by saying first that I made a mistake by tweeting,” added Hubbard. “I’m not someone who has to tweet something to change things. I would have had to go to him as a man, and I prefer action. It was bad on my part. But from now on, we will focus on the change. And it is the most important thing. ”
Hubbard is the offensive player of the Big 12 of the year, and it could have been a first choice of draft during the draft of the NFL by 2020, but he has decided to return to Oklahoma for another season. Last year, he ran for 2, 094 yards rushing and 21 touchdowns.
The shirt Gundy has had an impact on the social networks. The analyst of university football ESPN, Paul Finebaum, went so far as to say that Gundy should be fired.
“I thought the wrong person was excused. Chuba (Hubbard) expresses just his frustration with his head coach in the middle of a crisis, national and international, wearing a t-shirt of a network that I have to admit that I’ve never seen. But I have enough of reading “, he said in “Get Up” . “And a commentator on this network has recently said that” the lives of black count ” is a farce. So I can understand the frustration of the players. What I do not understand is why Mike Gundy is allowed to continue to train at Oklahoma State. ”
Finebaum continued: “This is not his first rodeo. This is not the first time that it embarrasses or humiliates the university. I think the sooner Oklahoma State will get rid of Mike Gundy, the better it will be for this school and especially the players who come out every Saturday and give their blood, their sweat and their tears for this university. ”
