Oklahoma State RB Chuba Hubbard threatens to sit out over Mike Gundy OAN shirt
Oklahoma State running back Chuba Hubbard expressed unhappiness via Twitter after his head coach was photographed wearing a T-shirt bearing the logo of a right-wing news network that supports President Donald Trump.
Hubbard, who led the nation in rushing in 2019, threatened to sit out games after a photo of coach Mike Gundy wearing an OAN T-shirt surfaced on social media. OAN is known for sharing content that has been promoted by President Trump.
I will not stand for this.. This is completely insensitive to everything going on in society, and it’s unacceptable. I will not be doing anything with Oklahoma State until things CHANGE. https://t.co/psxPn4Khoq

Hubbard ran for 2,094 yards last season and is regarded as a serious Heisman Trophy contender for 2020. Him sitting out games would be a huge blow to the Cowboys.
This has not been a smooth offseason for Gundy, who issued an apology in April over some coronavirus comments. Gundy is entering his 16th season as Oklahoma State’s head coach. He is 129-64 with a .668 winning percentage during his coaching career with the Cowboys.
