Mike Gundy voted OSU ahead of OU in the Coaches Poll

This is probably not the wisest thing Gundy has ever done.



The final coaches poll ballots were released on Sunday and Mike Gundy voted 10-2 Oklahoma State ahead of 10-2 Oklahoma despite losing to Oklahoma one day earlier. Here’s his ballot:

Yikes. That’s not a good look. So bad Andrew Gilman of Fox Sports Southwest had a suggestion:

Briles had OSU ranked ahead of OU as well:

Dana had OU No. 10 and OSU No. 11 (and how about Michigan State No. 2!!)

Stoops had OU No. 9 and OSU No. 11.

And Kingsbury had OU No. 9 and OSU No. 11 as well.

Art Briles (at No. 6) and June Jones (No. 8) were the only two coaches who had OSU in the top 10. Several coaches (including Urban Meyer and Kevin Sumlin) had OSU as low as No. 15.

I get (and appreciate) that this is a difficult task — especially when OU, Baylor, and OSU all beat each other — but if you’re Gundy you just can’t rank the team you just lost to ahead of you in the final poll when it has the same record as your team.

You just can’t.
