It would be nice to think at some point in the near future, Oklahoma State head football coach Mike Gundy would be nationally recognized as an elite educator and example to young men, rather than an immature WALKING-DICK with anger issues. Such recognition might be not come so quickly in the wake of a lawsuit filed by a Stillwater, OK handyman who claims Gundy wouldn’t allow him to finish a job because he wore an Oklahoma shirt. From Friday’s Oklahoman :
In a breach of agreement lawsuit filed in Payne County court, contractor Brent Loveland claims he lost more than $30,000 in possible income because of the time he devoted to Gundy’s home. Gundy and his wife, Kristen, are named as defendants in the case.
Loveland’s lawsuit says when he showed up to work on the Gundy’s house wearing an OU baseball shirt, the Cowboys’ coach unleashed a profanity-laden tirade and fired him.
According to the lawsuit, Gundy approached Loveland and said, ‘How dare you come into my house and offend my wife.”
When Loveland asked what he was talking about, Gundy responded “That (expletive) shirt you have on.”
The lawsuit goes on to say Gundy told Loveland “what a lowlife he was, and telling him to ‘pack his (expletive)’ and get off his property.”
Loveland claims he offered to turn the shirt inside out and apologize to the Gundys, but Mike Gundy replied by calling him a “stupid idiot” for wearing the OU shirt on “OSU soil.”
