If you’re a local journalist covering a college football team in a small town, and you haven’t had someone threaten to revoke your credentials, you just aren’t asking tough questions.
Looks like Mike Gundy is all about revoking status, and by threatening to revoke their status, he keeps the narrative to what he wants.
Check out this tweet below:
An OSU SID, on behalf of coach Mike Gundy, threatened the press corps with the loss of player availability for the rest of the season if any one of them asked players Tuesday about a player's departure this week. @spj_tweets @APSE_sportmedia @rcfp @collegemedia @1stAmendmentCtr

I’m sure trying to institute a ban on media questions will go over much more smoothly than if he’d just told his players to say “no comment”
Gundy is a still a man, although he’s not 40 anymore.
