OSU Rewind

Oklahoman Published: September 25, 2000
Injury update
Tony Lindsay left Saturday night's game late in the third quarter with "tightness" in his shoulder and didn't return.

The senior quarterback took hits on a pair of long scrambles, at the end of 53- and 27-yard gains. Three plays after the latter, he was replaced by Aso Pogi.

Simmons said he was optimistic Lindsay would be ready to go against Texas. If not, Pogi would get his first career start and walk-on Ryan Biven would be the backup.

Starting right guard Bryan Phillips, who talked about the anticipation of his matchups with the Southern Miss defensive linemen, played just two downs. Phillips twisted an ankle running onto the field before the game, tried to play and couldn't continue.

All too familiar?
For all the preseason and pre-game hype about OSU's diverse new offense, the first half was a dud.

With 26 offensive snaps, the Cowboys called just five pass plays -- none on first or second down -- and completed but one for 3 yards. Of the other 21 calls, there were 18 runs up the middle, one quarterback draw, a reverse that lost 9 yards and a sack.

The result: three first downs and 49 yards against a Golden Eagles defense that crowded the line and dared the Cowboys to throw.
