    Announcers said SS was a weak spot right after Slack misplayed a ball vs CSU ( I think it was CSU )....

    Freshman from Hallettsville, Texas threw a no-hitter against FSU for Florida. We need to trade Green for her. She needs to jump into the portal so her family and friends can watch her play in person.

    It’s nice to dream about...not having a solid #3 will hurt us at some point this season. Hopefully we can get to OKC before it happens

    Courtney day has done a hell of a job in the circle. I think she will be the #3 instead of adams. Adams is no lousy pitcher neither so having her come in for relief will be good. As far as green I hope it was just first game nerves because that was BAD!!

    I agree she will beat out Adams for the spot. She did do a great job this past weekend, I’m just hoping someone outside of Miranda and Shea will be able to provide quality relief against the OU/Bama’s of the world and not just the lower tier competition we started with.

    Texas stays at 6 and gets jumped by FSU, which beat the former #1 Alabama twice this last weekend.

    I wrote Flosports asking how I could pay for only 1 month of softball access. This is their reply:

    Thanks for your inquiry. Currently, we only offer an annual plan for $150.00 per year, billed in one upfront payment at the time of purchase. We can cancel early and offer a prorated refund with the old monthly term of $29.99.

    A PRO subscription gives you access to the entire FloSports network on the web and through our mobile and TV apps. This includes access to all live events and exclusive original programming across 25+ sports.


    I hope this information was helpful. Please let us know if you have any further questions.

    I don’t trust these guys. I read the reviews and nothing but complaints about misleading information and and a big hassle to get your credit when you cancel the account! All the games will be broadcast via radio on texassports.com. I’ll have my headset on!
    Thanks for the info Racer! Good post!

    Flosports is absolutely ridiculous! $150.00 a year alone blows my mind. How have they not figured out that 90% of people don't want a yearly subscription. They only want to be able to watch there team for a weekend or have the subscription for a couple weeks depending on the team. How about we all come up with a sports streaming service and charge reasonable prices.

    I've have friends who tried ESPN+ and were unhappy with the confusion in signing up and the billing (to follow women's basketball). When they tried to get a refund, they could get the year back, but not the month even though they never could get it working for them.

    I mention ESPN+ because two away games are prime candidates for ESPN+, OU and Iowa State. One OU game is definitely going to be ESPNU, but no mention of the other two. The old days of hoping to catch "SoonerVision" or "BaylorVision" are gone.

    Alabama started 1-3, being ranked #1. We play them in a few weeks at their place. Talk about Elish starts at the 21:00 mark.

    I wish espn+ would take over these softball tournaments/games instead of flosoftball. I still fail to understand why the only option is to purchase the yearly plan. Espn+ is not the best neither but it is much more simple and price is great.

    I agree Jacob, but of course the issue of money. As long as Flosports outbids ESPN+ they will get the streaming rights. If ESPN ups the bid up goes the ESPN+ price. NBC actually does this with most of their NBCSN productions. For example they will show one day of a track meet on NBC or NBCSN, but if you want to see everything you have to subscribe the NBCSN Gold package for track. The Gold packages go from $45 to $79 per season.

    Umps cheating Washington vs Bama...Called illegal pitch on Washington twice....Girl drug her foot both times ! Coach came out and apparantly argued the call...was not a happy camper. Announcers even said they would not have called them illegal.

    Not sure about nerves. You would think a pitcher who has pitched in HS play-offs wouldn't have those kinds of nerves. She not only missed the zone..she was like the wild thing before glasses....Had she missed the zone by inches, I'd say surely nerves...
    Wasn't she injured last year ? Maybe the injury has greatly affected her. Whatever it is....She couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.

    Kaitlyn Washington with a bonehead running mistake on second and ran us out of inning on a shot to LF that she got doubled up on. This field must be huge because no balls are coming close to going out.

    Utes score on a tailor made double play that would of got us out of the inning, they called an error on slack probably should of ben caught by Washington at 1b.

    Most all of the games after the first game of the tournament run late. Hard to keep games on schedule with 2-1/2 hr schedule plus each game gets a 35 minute warm up period.

    BACK TO BACK BOMBS in bottom of 7 to tie it. Surprisingly one by Slack, other by Hathaway.

    Awesome win for the horns today! They could not string together much offense in the first 6 innings. Rallied. In the 7th inning to steal the win. Adams pitched well in relief for O'leary who gave up 3 walks and 4 hits.
    Btw. If you go to the texassports.com and click on the softball schedule then go to the team they are playing, you have to click on preview to be able to see the link to live stats. Hope that helps if you want live updates.

    Thought from watching the Utah game:

    - Bad ABs from last year are creeping back in some. Just swinging at the first "hitable" pitch instead waiting and looking for a pull you can drive.
    -Jefferson is far and away our best player. Makes difficult plays look routine. Always has good approach at the plate. Very heady player. Should be on USA national team.
    - Washington would get more playing time if she had more softball intelligence. Makes some mind boggling decisions at times.
    -Ellsworth, Rhodes, and Day need to be more patient in the box.
    -Slack is our best defensive short stop outside of a couple errors. Makes pretty good reads on tough ground balls. Glad she hit a home run but hope this doesn't lead to her getting more at bats than necessary.
    - O'Leary though a rough start still looks better than last year.....if that's possible.
