Bob Stoops blasts Austin Kendall for Ohio State defense comments
Bob Stoops is not happy with backup quarterback Austin Kendall’s comments about the Ohio State defense.
Stoops said Monday that Kendall’s comments were “ridiculous” and will limit media access to his players going forward.
“I don’t know what [Kendall] could’ve been watching, to be quite honest with you,” Stoops said, via Jake Trotter of ESPN. “He must not have watched any tape, if he had that to say.”
Stoops even went as far to say that only older players would be allowed to speak to the media in light of Kendall’s comments.
“I’m not punishing anybody. I’m protecting my team,” Stoops said. “I don’t want information out there to other teams from guys that I can’t trust are going to say the right things. … It is ironic that it came from our people, if you can believe that. But they won’t be getting guys, either. I can only put people out there that are going to represent the program and say the right things.”
Kendall’s comments about Ohio State’s defense were controversial, and proven wrong when Baker Mayfield was picked off twice. It sounds like we won’t be hearing from him again anytime soon.
