    Lots of rumors here in Oklahoma that Mike Gundy is not getting along with his AD and TBoone.

    He's getting a lot of play for Ark and Tenn jobs. He makes about $3.25 mil.

    Would you be interested in the Buffs going after him?

    Is he a good coach, or does Sugar Daddy's money help him be better than he is. They have the best facilities in the country...could he recruit to Boulder? Don't know, but at $3M+ he's out of our price range.

    Their facilities are pretty average. No indoor facility.

    Gundy is a good HC, but I am not sure he is a fit here....

    I was actually thinking Gundy last night in the Chat Room but did not have a feel for if he would really be on the market. If he has issues with TBoone, his name should be one that is on the list that Mike is considering.

    Gundy just won the Big 12 last year...that should have bought him leeway in Stillwater. He went through three QBs this season and nearly beat OU in Norman recently.

    It would take a significant investment to get someone like Mike Gundy. $3.5+ million just for Gundy. He does have a top notch pedigree though, and if the worst baggage you can find about him is the "I'm a man, I'm 40" rant - he's pretty much golden.

    I could see what he might be interested in leaving OSU - but I do think it is doubtful that he will. He's always going to be 2nd fiddle to OU. He's always going to have a tough time competing with OU and Texas.

    Agree, and he also played there so that is another factor.

    It seems like it is a rumor started by Arkansas fans...remember the Houston Nutt rumors to replace Hawkins or something like that? With the sun setting on Mack Brown in Austin as it seems, the road to the Big 12 Championship runs through Oklahoma these days. Plus he will have to sort through three QBs next spring as the starting QB for the Pokes and they played well...a nice problem to have.

    I know that every cirucmstance is unique, but this has Rich Rod to Michigan failure implications in my mind. Not sold on this one.

    Given the UT rumors of Mack calling it a career...Gundy could pack up for Austin as soon as Mack is announcing his retirement on the LHN.
