NCAA Football Coach Rants Against “Liberalism” and “The Snowflake” Causing Player Transfers

Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy has reason to rant as his Cowboys are just 5-5.

With his team at 5-5, Oklahoma State football coach Mike Gundy has good reason to be ornery.

And he certainly was during a Monday press conference following the unranked Cowboys losing 48-47 to No. 6 Oklahoma over the weekend.

After the loss, Gundy was asked about safety Thabo Mwaniki tweeting he would be transferring out of the school the day after the defeat.

“I think we live in a world where people are noncommittal,” Gundy said. “We allow liberalism to say, ‘Hey, I can really just do what I want and I don’t have to be really tough and fight through it.’ You see that with young people because it’s an option they’re given. We weren’t given that option when we were growing up. We were told what to do, we did it the right way, or you go figure it out on your own. In the world today, there’s a lot of entitlement. I’m a firm believer in the snowflake.”

Gundy (the “I’m a man! I’m 40” ranter) clarified he wasn’t talking about Mwaniki specifically but millennials in general.

“Every millennial, young person. Generation Z, I think is what they call ’em,” he said. “It’s the world we live in because if they say, ‘Well, it’s a little bit hard,’ then we say, ‘Okay, well, let’s go try something else’ versus ‘Hey, let’s bear down and let’s fight and do this.’ So you see a lot of that nowadays.”

Gundy also had some choice words for Twitter users questioning his job security. Or, to be more precise, some choice sounds.
