Chuba Hubbard is done with Oklahoma State football until things change.

Chuba Hubbard may have played his last down for Oklahoma State football.

Hubbard, who was a unanimous All-American for the Cowboys last season as a redshirt sophomore, is upset with how things are going in Stillwater. He may be one of the two best running backs in college football along with Travis Etienne of the Clemson Tigers, but Hubbard sounds like he’s threatening to boycott playing for head coach Mike Gundy unless things change.

Gundy was photographed wearing an OAN shirt when he went fishing at Lake Texoma over the weekend. OAN, One America News, has a far-right political leaning. Though anybody can have any opinion about anything they want, you probably shouldn’t wear an OAN t-shirt when you’re going fishing and you’re the longtime head coach of a Power 5 program like Oklahoma State.

Hubbard quote tweeted Kyle Boone of CBS Sports’ photo of Gundy and dropped a huge bombshell on us all. “I will not stand for this..,” tweeted Hubbard. “This is completely insensitive to everything going on in society, and it’s unacceptable. I will not be doing anything with Oklahoma State until things CHANGE.”

Hubbard’s sentiment was echoed by linebacker Amen Ogbongbemiga, who quote tweeted Hubbard’s quote tweet with, “I stand with him!”

Tylan Wallace who bypassed the NFL Draft like Hubbard tweeted it’s about more than football.

Even Hubbard’s former backfield mate in Baltimore Ravens running back Justice Hill had something to say about what’s going on at Oklahoma State. He quote tweeted Hubbard as well with this. “OSU Athletics and University need major change. 100% support brotha.”

Chuba Hubbard wants to see big changes now with Oklahoma State football.

When two of the three best players on the 2020 Oklahoma State football team say changes need to be made yesterday in-house, their displeasure speaks volumes. Oklahoma State has a tremendous opportunity to win the Big 12. This could be the best team the Cowboys have had since the 2011 squad who won the Big 12 and narrowly missed out on a national title bout.

Truth be told, Hubbard doesn’t need to play another down for Oklahoma State. He’s could have gone pro in 2020 and been a top-100 pick in the NFL Draft. By returning to Stillwater, he was hoping to cement his legacy as a Cowboys running back legend the likes of Thurman Thomas and Barry Sanders before him. Now, he may not play another down in college football for anybody.

Though Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney was raked over the coals for not getting what Black Lives Matter is really about, he put all that to bed when he delivered a powerful message during the demonstration on the Clemson campus Saturday evening. Other coaches have stepped up big time in support of their players, but it doesn’t look like Gundy even remotely gives a damn.

This isn’t a “Football Matters” t-shirt that Gundy was wearing. It was a clear and blatant choice and his Oklahoma State players have ever reason to be infuriated by his lake-wear selection. Gundy is the head coach of Oklahoma State football. He can wear all the Pokes and OSU gear he could ever want. Why would you not want to promote your program at every possible second?

While he’s no longer 40, Gundy is still a man and that means he has to deal with the consequences of his actions. He may play it off as just a t-shirt, but given the political climate in, you just can’t freaking do that, man. You’re basically saying your right-winged political leanings are more important than the dozens of black players on your football team. Connect the dots or get a clue!

Chuba Hubbard may stop playing for Oklahoma State and we really wouldn’t blame him for it.
