Mike Gundy says he’s more likely to go to the NFL than another college

first_imgMike Gundy sat down with Seth Davis recently to talk about his gig and what it would be like to coach in the NFL.I thought a couple of his quotes were pretty interesting.“The one thing about the NFL is it’s intriguing because completely different than what we do in college,” said Gundy. “You’re managing grown men that are making millions of dollars.”Has the NFL ever been alluring to him in general, though?“I’ve had some talk with a couple of organizations. It was interesting listening and learning from them what it takes at that level.”“There could be a point in my career that if I ever decided to try something different (because that can happen) it would be more towards the NFL than it would be another college just from the loyalties I have to Oklahoma State.”He certainly made it sound like he’s more likely to be the next coach of the Jacksonville Jaguars than he is the Florida Gators.We’ll talk more about this after the season is over but I don’t think Gundy is going anywhere — I don’t think he gains anything by going anywhere (in college anyway). He’s not going to leave for the NFL, either. Look, I love Gundy, but he struggles to manage starting QBs at the college level much less a complex roster full of egos much bigger than his at the next level.That’s a recipe for disaster and I’m pretty sure he knows it. His destiny has always been this job and despite the overtures sent towards the east coast of late he’s self-aware enough (I think) to know that this is a once-in-a-lifetime marriage.If you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

first_imgKolkata: Trinamool Congress supremo Mamata Banerjee has urged party leaders on Friday to identify those who had been and are still staying in contact with BJP and at the same time, said those who have joined the saffron party will not be allowed to rejoin Trinamool.She told party leaders not to worry and assured that the party will make a comeback in the 2021 Assembly polls. Banerjee met the leaders of Jhargram and Bankura at Trinamool Bhavan on Friday afternoon. Subrata Bakshi, state Trinamool president and Suvendu Adhikari, state Transport minister, also attended the meeting.

Also find out those who had supported BJP in the recently concluded general election. Those who have joined BJP will not be allowed to rejoin the party,” she asserted. Banerjee said BJP has distorted her statement on the ‘cut money’ debacle. “BJP has distorted my view on cut money. I did not say it the way it is being circulated by BJP,” she maintained. She reiterated that despite her requests, some leaders did not develop contact with the people and the party had to pay a price for their attitude in the Lok Sabha election. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in state”I told you repeatedly to build contact with people. But you did not and the party is paying a price for it,” she said and once again instructed the leaders to intensify their contact with people. She also stated that the leaders should bury their hatchets and work together to make the party regain its position. She urged Arup Chakraborty, Arup Khan and Shampa Daripa of Bankura to increase their contact with people. Rajib Ghosal, Trinamool Youth Congress president of Bankura, has been sidelined and a new president will be elected. She also asked Shyamapada Mukherjee, former minister from Bankura, to keep in touch with Daripa. In Jhargram, she asked Birbaha Soren to get in touch with Uma Soren for the party’s programmes. The Trinamool supremo said in both Jhargram and Bankura, the state government has carried out massive development. Several schemes have been initiated for SC and ST people. “But despite that, we have failed to win the election. We lacked in informing the people about the schemes. The leaders lacked in developing contact with the people as well,” she said. It may be recalled that both in Jhargram and Bankura, Trinamool Congress candidates had lost to their BJP rivals. Trinamool had fielded Subrata Mukherjee in Bankura, who lost by a huge margin. Similarly, Birbaha Soren was defeated by the BJP candidate as well. Banerjee is visibly disturbed over the poll results and held a marathon meeting with the district leaders on Friday, to analyse the poll debacle in Bankura and Jhargram.last_img read more
