Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy has always been good for a soundbite or two – his most famous coming back in 2007 during his “I’m a man, I’m 40” rant. Monday, during Big 12 Media Days, Gundy added another gem to his collection. The Cowboys head coach, apparently a little taken aback by all of the lights and cameras, compared himself to pop superstar Britney Spears.

Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy just said he felt like Britney Spears walking into Big 12 media days. Yes, he really did.

No, this isn’t Gundy’s first appearance at the event – he’s been the head coach at OSU since 2005. It’s safe to say it’s a good thing he’s not an SEC coach – the fanfare associated with that conference is even more overwhelming.
