Losing to Kansas: Looking back

A day after Oklahoma State's 43-28 loss to Kansas and, after having a chance to view game tape, Mike Gundy's stance on what he told the media after the game hasn't changed.

"Exactly what I said last night was pretty accurate," Gundy said in his weekly teleconference. "We gave them four more chances than they gave us. And when you do that - the score ended up being 43-28 - you give them four more chances. So you figure if you only turn it over a couple of times, they probably score 35 points or 31 and give you a chance to score 35 or 31. But we turned it over four times; you don't have a chance."

No matter what the main cause for the loss last night was, the Cowboys are now at 5-5 (3-3 Big 12) on the season and needing to win at least one of their next two games to earn bowl-eligibility for the fifth-time in six seasons.

BOWMAN'S STATUS
Aside from the new L on the slate, the Pokes experienced another loss last night. Wide receiver Adarium Bowman left the game last night after taking a hit to the knee. He left the game after that and went to the locker room, not returning until the second half - in street clothes.

Early on in the teleconference, Gundy refused to talk about his status or whether he would play next weekend against Baylor.

"I'm not going to answer any injury questions," Gundy said. "I'm not going to answer any of those. I'd prefer to not talk about injuries.

"I'm just trying to make it clear. I think it's smart for us to not make them (Baylor) aware of whether he plays or not, because he's a pretty big player in our offense. I have not seen him today, but I should see him later on. He usually comes around here at nighttime."
