Gundy: "I felt like we got beat"OU running backs coach Cale Gundy, who worked daily with Adrian Peterson and played a key role in recruiting him to Norman, said he struggled all Saturday night with his star's injury. "It was hard," Gundy said. "Saturday after the game, I went home with my family. I watched some games on TV, played a little football with my son. We just kind of hung out. It was just kind of a rough feeling. "Even in the middle of the night, I woke up a couple of times. And when I woke up Sunday morning, I felt like we got beat." • Smith limping? Sooners strong safety Reggie Smith underwent an MRI on Monday, after spraining his left knee in Saturday's win over Iowa State. Smith received attention on the Sooner sideline in the first half but returned to the field. He spent Monday's practice on crutches, but coach Bob Stoops said that was precautionary. "Giving it a rest," Stoops said. "Looking to hopefully practice him on Wednesday. They've looked at it and feel like it's something that should heal up here soon." • Rufus response: Stoops said Monday that he was comfortable enough with the explanation concerning Rufus Alexander's early morning arrest Sunday that no further discipline would be necessary. "From what we understand today, no," Stoops said, "other than internally we'll work with him in some ways." Alexander, a senior, and two others were arrested at 2:10 a.m. Sunday. Alexander was charged with disturbing the peace and interference with official process, both misdemeanors. He told the Oklahoma Daily, OU's student newspaper, that he was trying to stop an altercation between Jared Scelfo, a passenger in the car he was driving, and James Wheeler, who stepped in front of the car, starting a verbal exchange. "(Wheeler) walked in front of my car, and he said some words," Alexander told the paper. "My friend got out of the car, and I was stopping him before he did something stupid. And the cops put us down on the ground and put us in jail." Norman police captain J.D. Younger told the paper he believed Wheeler instigated the confrontation. • OU-MU time set: The Sooners' Oct. 28 game at Missouri has been set for an 11 a.m. kickoff. The contest will be televised by ABC (Cox 8). • Tickets available: A limited number of tickets remain for OU's game Saturday against Colorado.
