Oklahoma State University head football coach Mike Gundy spoke to reporters in a teleconference on Tuesday afternoon and made some eyeopening remarks regarding being able to resume practices on May 1st during the current health crisis in the country.
Gundy is currently advocating for players to resume practice on May 1st because he feels that players are equipped to fight the virus and that they need to generate revenue for the state of Oklahoma.
“We get people that get the flu during the season, we quarantine them, we treat them, we make sure they’re healthy, we bring ’em back,” Gundy said. “It would be the same thing here, but at some point, we’ve got to go back to work. We’ve got to get these guys back in here. … From what I read, the healthy people can fight this, the antibodies make it better. They’re doing some blood transplants now with the people that have already gotten the disease, that have gotten over it that have the antibodies that can fight it. There’s a lot of people who can figure this out. May 1’s our goal. Don’t know if it will happen. Players will come in after that.”
Gundy got immediately crushed for his comments about risking his players’ health to generate revenue.
