I don't think you understand. The continual attacks on Gundy do damage to OSU. People who love OSU are dumb and foolish to attack Gundy through the media.
It only damages OSU's brand with recruits if it becomes apparent that the institution is willing to support his antics by keeping him.
Apparently Gundy was out with the regents, but Holder was able to smooth the situation over for the time being.
Hubbard did not attack OSU, he called out his coach and in the process is making OSU a better place for student athletes because the coach he called out is instituting change.
Thats the opposite of tarnishing the brand
That strengthens the brand from an institutional perspective because the institution is being improved.
The question is, how much will Gundys tarnished image hurt OSU amidst that process.
I dont think Gundy can overcome this in recruiting and I dont think it will benefit OSU to look complicit by keeping him past this year
