Oklahoma State is reportedly still considering firing Cowboys football coach Mike Gundy.

Gundy has been in the news nonstop ever since he wore a One America News Network shirt, and superstar running back Chuba Hubbard threatened to boycott the team. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

It looked like the situation had gone away after multiple apologies from Gundy, but that doesn’t appear to be the case at all.

According to Bill Haisten in an article for Tulsa World, firing Gundy is a “discussion topic at the highest level of the Oklahoma State pyramid,” but no decision has been made at this time. He did add the firing wouldn’t “solely” be over the OAN situation if it happens.

Haisten believes there’s a 70% chance Gundy keeps his job. If he is fired without cause, which would seem to be the likely situation if he’s cut loose, then he’d be owed a $17 million buyout.

If Mike Gundy is fired by Oklahoma State, it’ll be remembered as one of the most embarrassing moments in the history of college football.

Is Gundy living off in his own universe to a degree and does he say stuff that some might find a bit strange? Sure. Has he done anything even close to deserve being fired?

Not at all, and you’re kidding yourself if you think otherwise. The dude wore a damn t-shirt from a conservative news site in a state that overwhelmingly voted for President Donald Trump in 2016!

You might not like Gundy’s results on the field (they’re pretty good), but firing him over a shirt or anything else he’s said is simply unacceptable.

The boosters with the power need to step in and end this circus. It’s gone on far too long.
