Kenny has built a fun program. In his early years we lacked elite pitching but scored a bunch of runs. Show came in and gave us better pitching but we lacked a number two but we did get epic bat flips at the WCWS. Now we have two aces that start and have a pretty good offense most of the time.
Oh I see....they didn't complete the baylor series....that's a gamechanger.
2019 had two legit pitchers in Show and Clakley with Simunek doing what she does best, coming in relief and was the huge reason we won the FSU regional if not the main reason. Getting JOHN BARGFELDT has change OSU pitching and has allowed Cottrill to manage the offense, which is what he does best with Kenny playing CEO.
One constant about this team is they play to the level their competition. Not that surprised they got up for this game. They’ve played well against ranked teams. The pitching travels and always been the strength. The hitting is starting to peak at the right time. Tomorrow they’ll throw Shannon shaile...and although she throws gas, she’s given up hits against OSU going back when she was at FIU and we played against her in the Florida regional a few years back. Win the game, and clinch a share of the conference.
This team should be ranked in the top 4 if you don’t lose to UMKC, Houston, and Kansas. The Louisiana lose is fine because they’re good. Losing to Witchia State twice isn’t all bad either but the second time was just unacceptable. The first time, we didn’t have Eberle due to CO-VID and went with Simenuk, which was a huge mistake because they’ve always hit her extremely well since she’s been on campus. The defense didn’t helped either that day as well.
