Gundy's First Take On Incoming Sports Illustrated Allegations

Posted: Updated:
STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

Monday's media lunch provided OSU and coach Mike Gundy the first chance to respond to the forthcoming Sports Illustrated article which will allege inappropriate activities and actions.

"We, our staff and myself, are focused on a team--our team—doing the right things. I'm very proud of what we have accomplished here both on and off the field," Gundy said.

"Our goal has always been to take young people from where their families, their parents have gotten them and make them better over a 4-5 year period, and we're very proud of that in many ways."

After Gundy left the podium, athletic director Mike Holder gave a lengthy statement, providing further insight into the magnitude of the coming allegations.

"Unfortunately, we've got something out there on the horizon that we're going to have to deal with. I don't know a lot of specifics. I know enough to be very concerned. Sports Illustrated sent two very capable people in here to talk to us last week. George Dohrmann, who is a writer on the story, he did win a Pulitzer Prize. The Investigative Editor, I had never met one of those before, his name was B.J. Schecter. He was an impressive young man. They believe that what they're about to write is true. As the athletic director at Oklahoma State and an alumnus of the university, I don't want to believe that it's true.

"We pride ourselves on doing things the right way around here."
