Had this Twitter exchange...
I really love what Gundy and the athletic dept. are doing with all the new media they are making. It's not waiting on traditional media to— Lane (@gopokes22) February 27, 2014
@CowboysRFF yes but I really don't mind that— Lane (@gopokes22) February 27, 2014
@CowboysRFF I think that fans and people outside the program don't need to know everything that goes on— Lane (@gopokes22) February 27, 2014
@CowboysRFF there is but the coaches can control press conference info as well by having their media people tell reporters what subjects— Lane (@gopokes22) February 27, 2014
@CowboysRFF they can ask ?s about or just by saying no comment— Lane (@gopokes22) February 27, 2014
@CowboysRFF they are going to have player interviews and what's really exciting it the first year player interviews they are going to have— Lane (@gopokes22) February 27, 2014
@CowboysRFF I just heard about it in an interview with one of the guys thats working on the videos— Lane (@gopokes22) February 27, 2014
The referenced interview was conducted by Robert Allen (no surprise), as he was speaking with a person involved in producing the videos.
I have to say that, while I have always been a vocal critic of Gundy's unwillingness to share info about the program and its players, this would be a tremendous development, especially the interviewing of first year players.
Now I'm sure those will be controlled...these will be video productions produced by OSU...but either way, it's something the fans will go nuts over. The "Coach's Chalk Talk" videos have already met with approval, so I think it would be clear that while Gundy doesn't care all that much for the regular, or irregular, media, he does realize that information needs to get out there to create buzz among the fans. OSU isn't rolling in championships yet, so there still needs to be something trotted out that generates excitement.
Excitement sells tickets.
I'm all for it. Good job Coach Gundy.
