Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy was “shocked” Texas’ biggest play of Saturday’s game wasn’t review.
On a play that provoked Gundy to use a four-letter word, Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger connected with John Burt, who tiptoed the sideline and ended up with a 90-yard reception to Oklahoma State’s 2-yard line. Many questioned whether Burt stayed in bounds on the play, Gundy included. But officials did not review the play.
“Was I shocked that they didn’t review it? Yes, I’m shocked,” Gundy said during his Monday news conference, per the Tulsa World’s Mark Cooper. “Let’s make sure. We have the capability. We’ve invested millions of dollars in replay. Why didn’t we review it? I know he had white shoes on, and I know it’s a white sideline. But in my opinion, it’s worth at least taking a look.”
Gundy makes a fair point, asking what the purpose of replay technology is if it’s not going to be used on questionable plays such as Saturday’s. Of course, it’s not the first time Gundy has had issues with officiating, most notably in last year’s 30-27 loss to Central Michigan on a touchdown that came after a misapplication of rules.
Saturday, Ehlinger ran for a touchdown the next play, tying the game at 7. The Cowboys won, 13-10, in overtime, but they could’ve avoided some stress had officials taken a closer look at the play along the sideline.
