The only folks happier about Zac Robinson and Andrew Lewis filling the Sports Illustrated cover with hunter’s orange are UGA fans. Observe the cover from this time last year.
Granted, the Pokes aren’t picked to win it all. But the SI curse is very real. SI covers are like square roots and 17-year-old girls. Smart people dream about them in their heads.
And what’s up with Gundy shutting off players and coaches from STATE media until Aug. 31? Doesn’t he want Dez Bryant and Andre Sexton to answer the 1,385,324th question about what its like to open against a school like Georgia, can OSU compete in the Big 12 South, are the 2009 triplets better than the 1988 triplets. It’s kind of an a-hole move, especially for local media because now they’ll have to pay attention to WNBA press conferences.
But I understand where Gundy’s coming from. Every story has been done from every angle and every question has been asked about the season and the Georgia game. Now go write a Locust Grove football season preview, Local Ink-Stained Media Types.
Leave Gundy and the Pokes alone! Unless the recruiting signees abate. Then its … WHERE’S THE LOCAL COVERAGE. THE TULSA WORLD FAVORS OU!!!!
