The premise. The writing. The flow. The coherence. All of this John Klein column is staggeringly terrible.
First, the premise. Klein says the Oklahoma State can’t overlook Texas. In what universe would a coach and team and program who have lost 12 straight to another program ever in God’s merciful name overlook an opponent like Texas. The notion isn’t even speakable. This all despite that fact that the Cowboys are favored by a touchdown ON THE ROAD against Texas. This is the very definition of a non-story. Did that even come up at Gundy’s news conference? That the Pokes would OVERLOOK Texas? Holy shit, this guy is terrible.
And the writing is bad, even for a knuckle-dragger like Klein. He basically uses the same Gundy quote twice in two parts of the story.
First quote: “They are still very athletic.”
Second quote … further down in the story: “They still have talent.”
Are those quotes so different that Klein would have to use each one?
Then the lack of flow and coherence are Klein staples. WHO does this man have dirt on? Why is he allowed to write the Big 12 Insider? I get less information because I doubt everything he says! Then he’s trying to stoke rumors that Todd Graham is heading to Boulder? God, what a dumbass.
