Out hit OU, gifted 8 free passes and still find a way to hold the L.....I give Kenny credit for scheduling a tough schedule...that said, I am worried that these last 5 games might destroy this team's confidence.

Looking forward to seeing how this team responds. The team did compete a tad bit better today, but still made critical errors. Coach moving people up and down the lineup this late in the season is problematic. It also speaks a coach that's somewhat in panic mode. He has a couple decisions to make. One being with Brianna Evans. Her offense has struggled mightily in conference play, but she's becoming a liability defensively. Of course you could play Petty at 2nd, but she doesn't have the range like evans, and her bat has struggled compared to last year. PItching is what it is.....I don't see Elish pitching again, and if she does I don't think she'll be as effective.

I'm hopeful the senior leadership on this team can weather the storm, but you just never know. The last 2 weeks have been brutal and we have a bunch of players that simply lack confidence right now.

Weird to see a softball/baseball tournament that is single elimination. Need to at least reach the finals if they want a National seed
This is the first time doing this way. It has been round robin with 1,4,6 in one group and 2,3,5 in another. Then all six will play on final day either for championship...3rd....5th

Was Gasso taunting us by allowing all of those walks? Sort of in your face!

I did not do Elish or Evans since they didn’t play last year. Or any other players that only batted a handful of times.

This is a rumor so mods please delete if warranted: the parent of a potential recruit to OSU says that A&M is after Coach G pretty hard. Can't find anything about it online. Joleen Evan's has been their coach for quite some time.

Exhibit A for two things: why the new softball stadium is important, and why it's absolutely critical we not be stuck in the Big 12. We have to show that we're committed to helping Kenny get what he needs for this program to be championship good, not just OKC good. And we have to be in position that we can do those things and not have our coaches still moneywhipped away to someplace like A&M anyway.
