OSU-Missouri: Postgame Notebook

The worst of the injuries was to linebacker Pagitte McGee. McGee is likely lost for the season with an anterior cruciate ligament tear. Lawrence Pinson suffered a sprained ankle that he tried to come back on, but wasn't able to go. His situation is up in the air. Quarterback Bobby Reid suffered a foot injury that appeared to be very painful. Reid was X-rayed and was wearing a protective boot. The initial thought is he is doubtful for the Texas A&M game and could also miss the Iowa State game.

Also, safety Jamie Thompson suffered a hip bruise or contusion, linebacker Rodrick Johnson suffered an ankle injury, wide receiver D'Juan Woods a bruised shin, and cornerback Calvin Mickens a bruised shoulder. Thompson, Woods, Johnson and Mickens are all likely to be ready to go against Texas A&M.

There were just 10 prospects - that we were able to account for - at the game on Saturday, and Oklahoma City Southeast standout defensive tackle Gerald McCoy was not one of them. McCoy had said he was going to attend the game but did not after Southeast lost 47-2 to Ardmore and Jermaine Gresham, another national prospect, on Friday night.

Olaitan Oguntodu of Mesquite (Texas) Horn was there on an official visit. Oguntodu, who is out for the rest of the season with a shoulder injury, was hosted by fellow defensive back Andre Sexton. Oguntodu is 6-1, 200 pounds with 4.5 speed and is also considering Arkansas, Baylor and Kansas State. The other prospect of note in Stillwater was Carrollton (Texas) Creekview defensive end Jeremy Beal. The 6-3, 245-pounder runs a 4.9 and was a very impressive looking prospect.

Jamie Beeghley had a busy week and a busy day. Jamie and his wife celebrated the birth of their first child on Thursday. Lance McCann Beeghley weighed in at seven pounds and six ounces. Beeghley did not stay with the team on Friday, but instead stayed up changing diapers at home. The new holder for the Cowboys and kicker Bruce Redden, Beeghley held for Redden's field goals of 52, 48, and 28 yards, and both extra points after Cowboy touchdowns on Saturday. "It's tough to face this loss, but I have something great to go home to with that beautiful baby boy and a lovely wife," Beeghley said after the game.

There were two calls reviewed in the game. The officials were right on Bobby Reid's fumble late in the first half that led to a late Missouri touchdown with 26 seconds left. The officials ruled that Reid lost the ball and that his arm had not started forward. The instant replay concurred with the call. Later the instant replay official overturned a Cowboy touchdown by freshman Ricky Price on a pass from Reid. Instead, the ball was marked at the 18-inch line where the replay official said that Price's shoulder had touched. The Cowboys later scored on a Julius Crosslin touchdown run. One play not reviewed was Mike Hamilton's first fumble where it appeared that Hamilton may have been down before the ball came free.
