COPY-Oklahoma State's Gundy doesn't regret postgame tirade

DENVER (AP) - Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy has had time to cool off and think about his postgame tirade.

Even if he could, Gundy still wouldn't take a word back.

Gundy was upset over a column that was critical of quarterback Bobby Reid.

Instead of talking about the team's 49-45 win over Texas Tech on Saturday night, Gundy stuck up for Reid, often screaming at reporters, before hastily departing.

Gundy was asked during a Big 12 teleconference today if he regretted his rant.

Gundy said, quote: "I wish I would've said more. I'm tired of people downgrading college athletes that are good people."

Texas coach Mack Brown said he stopped reading newspapers, listening to call-in shows and surfing the Internet about four years ago. That way, he doesn't waste time battling with reporters over false information.

Brown leaves it up to his players if they want to read or listen to the news.
