    This isn't the best a Texas team has ever looked. Texas has feasted on the average and done poorly against the quality teams. It's not complicated, they don't have great players on the team as a whole. Which is why when they face quality teams/pitchers they don't do well. Tomorrow will be the last game of the season.

    Like most, I was surprised O'Leary didn't get the start in Game 1 on Friday. Then, it kind of struck me that instead of starting our #1 pitcher against their #1 pitcher (Conference POY), Coach White deciding to go #2 vs their #1 on Friday, and #1 vs their #2 on Saturday was a very calculated move.

    Not much to strategize, IMO, in a winner-take-all Game 3 on Sunday. Gotta start O'Leary as she has been very good her last several outings other than giving up a few longballs.

    Hoping our team plays loose tomorrow, and OSU plays tight. All the pressure is on the Cowgirls, IMO.

    Still in it! After that mess on Friday I wasn't confident yesterday.

    My daughter and I went to the garage to hit some balls in the 5th inning because we were frustrated about them not scoring. She needed to take it out on a couple of buckets....then we won.

    Lets go ladies and get it done!!! Hook 'Em!! :hookem:

    As bad as those were its always comes back to our lack of situational hitting. Its not over but there are no scoreless wins...someone always eventually scores

    Agree. We've had runners on but haven't delivered. Too many ground outs.

    Well, about what I expected. Really, maybe better than I expected. The only thing that bothers me is the "bye-bye" wave we did during the game. I mean, Mary's done it in the past, but Shea doing it after getting the third out? I don't want us stooping to their level of sportsmanship.

    Despite the back to back HBP's you can't blame this game on Oleary. Even with those she was pretty damn good, but you can't win if you don't score.

    And you aren't going anywhere when only 1 player upped their average in the postseason. (Janae) As Espn was showing, most of them were sub .200 and sub .100, while they were also showing most of the okie players had upped their average in the postseason. That's really what it came down too.

    But, like racer said, about what I expected, maybe better, once I knew Miranda wasn't playing. Oleary should be better next year and there's talent coming in. Maybe next year they make it to OKC.

    Tks for the season ladies. CoachWhite had a sharp infield when we got to regionals. We have a good 3B to go with Parker.

    We had good contact but they went right at ‘em. We actually had better contact than the Cowgirls.

    Glad I did not see the “goodby” episode.
    I mute the espn announcers, I cannot take their ceaseless chirping about nothing. You

    Now we need another big time pitcher transfer to go with O’Leary next year and a couple of big bloopers.

    Totally agree Malcom! Considering our pitching staff I feel we over achieved by winning 43 games. Eberle for Okie lite is just an amazing pitcher in spotting the ball where she wants it! She wasn’t pitcher of the year in the Big 12 for nothing! I wish them the best in the WCWS.

    Proud of the team. Wish we had a little more grit. The goodbye waving is fake grit and not a fan.

    The recruits we have coming in are going to take a couple starting spots. Lets make it to the WCWS next year.

    Definitely need about two experienced pitchers in the off-season and there shouldn't be any problems getting them since this new transfer rule makes everyone immediately eligible for first time transfers.

    Other than basketball, all women's sports have allowed for immediate eligibility for first time-transfers prior to the new rule (since the creation of the transfer portal back in 2018). But, this new rule also makes it easier for intra-conference transfers to be eligible immediately, I believe.
