  1. Wow. We better be very much improved in our coaching before this happens. The SEC Tournament will be very interesting.
  2. You could probably blame the OKC weather for that development. The rain delays on Saturday and Sunday were to blame. You're not off topic at all. Watching the 8 teams in the WCWS makes some things perfectly clear. We are no where near close to those teams and no facility will make up for the human element we seem to be missing. I'm not talking about hitting or fielding or pitching, The only team that made me scratch my head and wonder why they were there was UGA. The only idea I could come up with was that Lou Harris Champer told her team of her retirement plans before the
  3. Well OU banks another one with their home field advantage. Their bashers wear you down and Gasso keeps finding gritty pitchers. I have never seen a pitcher putting so much reverse spin on a ball the way Juarez can and she's coming back next year. FSU pitcher Sandercock was throwing low in the zone in game 2 and OU still got under the pitches to drive them out. Unbelievable. Congrats to Taylon Snow. At least someone with a connection to our team will get a ring. Just canceled my ESPN+ subscription and waiting for February 2022 to start it back.
  4. Yeah, neither coach started their #1 and both should be rested. FSU just keeps clawing. I think OU was shell shocked or a few innings after that 5 run inning.
  5. Slot and OW, I agree 100% with you guys. OU always has home field advantage being 12 or 13 miles from their campus. Arnold never impressed me when she was at UT. Think Gasso plays it like she did against us with Paige Parker. Starts her #1 in game 1 and her #2 in game 2. There is speed and power on both teams and both play great defense. This is a great matchup for us fans
  6. Yeah I think Murphy outsmarted himself by not pitching Fouts on Sunday when FSU was tired. It gave them more time to prepare and game plan. I also wonder if the team was surprised by that move. They seemed flat in both games and she was not hitting her spots tonight. To paraphrase someone reviled by many on this site: "She went from the Penthouse on Friday to the Outhouse on Monday". Well we have 2 teams who went through the loser's bracket in the Finals for the first time ever. Here's to hopefully 3 more nights of softball.
  7. And the move of the games to Monday makes it real interesting. The OU vs JMU outcome didn't surprise me, but the Bammer vs FSU outcome did. Bammer looked flat on offense and defense. I didn't think JMU could beat the Sooners 2 in a row. Now all 4 teams have a chance to rest overnight. The FSU SS seemed to tweak an old knee injury, so it will be interesting to see how she is after she's cooled down and it had time to stiffen up. FSU plays tough with their backs to the wall like they did when they won it all a few years ago, so it will be interesting to see if Fouts can continue her domina
  8. Normally I agree, but for some strange reason, I don't feel that way about softball. Anyway, it's going to be hard to beat Bammer as long as Fouts is chunking Perfecto's. It's hard to score when you don't get anyone on base. I have to imagine UCLA has never had a perfect game thrown against them.
  9. First unseeded team to win their first 2 games in the WCWS and she's 1 win away from having her team in the Championship Series. She has a team that's gritty and has a "us against the world mentality". They're playing sound fundamental softball on the biggest stage. Yeah I would agree.
  10. I believe I just witnessed the gutsiest performance by a pitcher I have ever seen. Kudos to JMU and Odicci Alexander. She refused to lose. What a game.
  11. UCLA left their Number 2 pitcher at home with some type of injury. We'll see if Fouts can hold up.
  12. Can 1 player make the difference in 2 teams post season fortunes? Let's see, 1 team hosts a regional and loses to 2 unseeded teams and is eliminated. Another team wins its regional and super regional and advances to the WCWS. Tennessee lost pitcher Caylan Arnold and really missed her as a number 2 pitcher. She transferred to FSU where she pitched game 2 of the super regional and got the win against LSU to help her team advance to the WCWS. Interesting?
  13. I also failed to mention one offensive category where we were number 1. CAUGHT STEALING.
  14. We lost 10 games by 1 run. We were 1-3 against Kennesaw St and Chattanooga and in the 3 loses we were shut out all 3 games. We finished next to last in the SEC standings and finished the season with a 4 game losing streak. We were last in the conference in: Batting avg Slugging pct On base pct Runs scored Hits Runs batted in Doubles Home runs Total Bases Total plate appearances Walks Hit by pitch We won 1 SEC series and were swept by Alabama, Arkansas and Tennessee. Can't imagine why there would b
  15. Absolutely. Pitching, defense and timely hitting along with productive upperclassmen. LSU and Mizzou are sitting at home because of breakdowns. Arky's bats went cold and their defense broke under pressure along with running into the buzz saw of Arizona. Mike Candreas has been there so many times. He knows how to prepare a team. When they came here for the Super Regional, I was impressed how smoothly their infielders fielded balls and threw to first. Seemed everything was one motion. Can't believe UGA went to Gainesville and thumped UF. Should be a great WCWS. The question is who m
