Gundy still questions winning Texas touchdown

Associated Press  |  Last updated September 30, 2012
After taking another look at the replays, Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy still has questions about Texas running back Joe Bergeron's winning touchdown in the teams' Big 12 opener. Gundy said on a conference call Sunday night that the first thing he did in the morning was look back over film of the play from the previous night. ''I think he fumbled,'' Gundy said. ''I don't know what else to say.'' Officials ruled on the field that Bergeron had scored on a 2-yard touchdown run with 29 seconds left. Oklahoma State's Daytawion Lowe came out of a pileup at the goal line with the ball, but the initial ruling was upheld after an instant replay review. The Longhorns (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) won 41-36 and moved up to No. 11 in The Associated Press poll Sunday. Gundy said he didn't get an explanation of the ruling on the play, although he admitted he hadn't sought one out on his own. He said he ''can't imagine that they wouldn't'' contact him to discuss the play further. ''We don't really get that answer on the field,'' Gundy said. ''We only get the answer that they are reviewing a fumble and then the only thing that I can say is the determination must have been that he didn't fumble or that he had already crossed the goal line before he fumbled. But I never got that answer.'' Gundy said he thought he might have had access to video angles that weren't available to officials - or to the television audience - from the team's own film. After his own review, he had doubts that the right call was made. ''We coach our players to fight until the very end, the half-yard line, 2-yard line, 4-yard line. Alex Elkins did a great job of putting his helmet on the football, and that's what he's coached to do,'' Gundy said. ''I'm disappointed from that standpoint but there's just nothing you can do. You've just got to move forward.'' Oklahoma State (2-2, 0-1) has this week off before playing at Kansas on Oct. 13. He didn't expect there to be any hangover with his players over the close call. ''In that area, they are fairly well trained. They know that they can't change calls,'' Gundy said. ''I haven't heard one comment from them. It hasn't been discussed with anybody on our coaching staff.''
