Videos by OutKick

Mike Gundy celebrated his birthday over the weekend by jamming out with Zach Bryan, and some fans are definitely not happy.

The Oklahoma State football coach turned 56 Saturday, and celebrated by attending Bryan’s concert in Tulsa.

Obviously, he wasn’t just going to chill in the cheap seats. He hopped up on the stage as the crowd was going wild.

You can check out the moment Gundy teamed up with the fastest rising name in country music below.

Some fans aren’t pleased with Mike Gundy attending a Zach Bryan concert.

The season is just a few weeks out for the Cowboys and most other college football teams, and that seems to be an issue with fans.

Why was Mike Gundy at a concert with just a few weekends before the opener against Central Arkansas?

People weren’t pleased at all.

There are plenty more examples of similar comments online in reaction to Gundy attending the concert. However, is the outrage justified?

Is attending a concert and hopping on stage a few weeks out from the season starting appropriate? Clearly, some fans don’t think so, and I think your casual fan likely agrees it shouldn’t be done.

The fact of the matter is Oklahoma State is coming off a very disappointing 7-6 season. The team collapsed down the stretch and lost a bowl game to a very bad Wisconsin team.

Do you see Luke Fickell dancing at concerts as he tries to turn around the Badgers? No. Do you see Nick Saban having the time of his life? Not at all.

It’s just a tough look. If OSU was rolling, then it’d be hard to question anything Gundy does. That’s just not the case.

If fans are already fired up and it’s not even the middle of August, then imagine what people might be like if the Cowboys drop a few early games. Prepare for some serious outrage. Was going to the concert a bad idea? Let us know in the comments below.

  1. People are nuts. I’m not particularly a fan of Gundy ever since he took a knee to criticism from his star running back for wearing a tee shirt with a conservative network written on it. Pussy move. But he has the right to enjoy himself for a few hours.

  2. The answer to your question is NO. So he can’t take a few hours to celebrate his BD. These people I am sure take a break from their job but he can’t from his. He coaches football and the hours these coaches put is just stupid.

  3. That this is a story is truly amazing. Only a complete moron would think it is wrong for a football coach to have a personal life. Love that some simpleton thinks that a 17 or 18 year old kid is on the phone with Brent Venables on a Saturday night. Seriously can’t believe people this stupid are able to make it through life.
