If you love somebody, set them free.

Mike Gundy’s decided he wants to be this year’s Randy Edsall.  Wes Lunt is a quarterback who’s left the OSU program, and his list of schools blocked by Gundy numbers an astounding 37.

Now it’s not all Gundy’s fault.  He can do this because the system lets him.  Still, there’s something wrong when the same guy who flirted with taking a job at Tennessee just a few months ago can now block a kid from enrolling at the same place.

Maybe Gundy was one of the coaches who called Jimbo Fisher to give him some moral support about Matthew Thomas.

    Will some attorney please take a test case to have this kind of overreaching stopped. The kid has to sit for a year and now he can’t play for 37 schools, this is just BS and the NCAA is a BS organization for allowing this to happen.

    If you sit out a year a coach should not be able to control your destiny. Since scholarships are only guaranteed for a year I don’t understand how the schools can do this. I think a lawsuit would be good.

    So basically Coach Gundy won’t let him go to one of the AQ conferences and he is the back up so his chances of making the NFL are slim to none.

    So after blocking thirty seven possible schools the guy can transfer to, the writer says, “Gundy and his staff appear willing and able to make Lunt’s transfer as inconvenient as possible.”

    I hope that was tongue in cheek.

    I am glad we don’t hear anything like this from UGA.

    This started with 3 schools because they were schools that Ok St might play. Tennessee is an odd one because they aren’t on Ok St’s list for the next 4 yrs. Can hardly believe it has gone to 37 schools. That’s plain asswipery. Yeah, Gundy, you are a man;- a very small one at that. And this is a backup QB who won’t play anyway?

    Would think this would produce shivers on the recruiting trail.

    I was thinking 35 or less would be a workable number, but he got all greedy with 37.
