Hubbard Says ‘Things Are Being Changed as We Speak’ Day after Gundy Call Out

“I’m a young black man who wants change.”



The Cowboys’ star running back seems confident change is on the horizon after a crazy Monday.

Chuba Hubbard called out Mike Gundy, his coach, on Twitter on Monday after a picture surfaced of Gundy wearing the shirt of a far-right news network. Hubbard called it “unacceptable” and stated he wouldn’t be doing anything related to Oklahoma State until things changed.

Hubbard’s teammates were quick to have his back, and the commotion drew statements from OSU president Burns Hargis and athletic director Mike Holder. The day ended with Hubbard and Gundy joined together in a video, where Gundy said they had a “great meeting” and that he was looking forward to making some changes.

In the video, Hubbard apologized for taking it to Twitter, which rubbed some the wrong way that he was apologizing at all. Hubbard ended the video in saying they were going to focus on bringing change.

After a night to sleep on it, Hubbard released another statement Tuesday morning.

“I was never wrong for saying what I said,” Hubbard wrote. “I am a man, and I realized I should have went to him as a man face to face rather than on Twitter. That’s my opinion. But I had to hold him accountable either way. I’m glad things happened the way they did because things are being changed as we speak!”

Hubbard, the nation’s leading rusher in 2019, didn’t go into details about what was changing, but he seemed confident that things were headed in the right direction.

“I spoke out because I am emotionally drained and I’m tired of seeing stuff happening without results or consequences,” Hubbard wrote. “I realize I have a platform to generate change and I am trying my best to use it accordingly.”

Hubbard ended his statement with another powerful expression on wanting change and wanting to create a better experience for black athletes at OSU.

“I’m a young black man who wants change,” Hubbard wrote. “I want change that will bring a better experience for my black brothers and sisters at Oklahoma State. It’s that simple. Over these next few months I have left at Oklahoma State, I will be working EVERY DAY to bring change to this organization and to the world. I will be supported by my teammates along with people within this organization.

“To everyone else, trust me when I say that good will come from this.”

Here is Hubbard’s full statement.
