    Cornell, SEC Pitcher of the Year, fails to throw a pitch in the game. Sometimes a coach outsmarts himself. The last thing we wanted was a game 3.

    Murphy doesnít need to bring Fouts in off the bench. Thatís twice in a row now that sheís gotten lit up coming off the bench! I think she starts tomorrow.

    Well, they certainly look for it with Brown. She might as well quit slapping because she can't seem to keep the left foot in. With the new rule, even a toe can be over and they can call you out.

    Well, that was an ugly evening. Did we just relax too much when we got a four run lead and Elish left the game. Whatever happened we sure lost concentration out there. Hope we can dig deep tomorrow and pull this thing out.

    Bringing Fouts in with two runners on with their best hitter up was probably the mistake of the ball game. It killed whatever confidence that she had from last night and really threw her into a sinkhole. I think starting Goodman over Cornill is a high risk high reward move, and I really think if you are going to start Goodman you might as well ride her through until you get to a good stopping point because she will get out of trouble at some point. You donít bring fouts in vs their best hitter.

    Errors and wasted at bats continue to plague us. I really think Brown, Moore, and Jenkins have become automatic outs at this point. We really need to figure this new pitcher out quick because she had our number tonight.

    No. But there was plenty of people around me.

    Unless Cornell is experiencing overuse issues, I do not understand why she did not get an opportunity last night. Made sense to me to start her. But I am not the coach. The Elish incident took the air out of us also. I think we thought we had it won when she went down. We never recovered from that point. We need to make an adjustment with Brown. She needs to get on base to put pressure on the defense.

    Today will be tough no doubt. Hope the Elish girl is going to be okay.

    She was warming up and stretching all night. I'm unsure as well unless Murph didn't want Texas to see her at all in case of a game 3 . So I think it highly possible that you see Cornell and Fouts today.

    Oddly enough we have scored 7 of the 8 runs in this series off of her. I think it was more we prepared for her all week, and we got a pitcher that we weren't use to. Today should be a low scoring affair, but we should win like 3-0 vs them. I was more surprised that Texas scored 7 runs, only 5 earned.

    Brown is finally getting called for stepping outside the box mostly because we don't have SEC umps anymore. She is almost an automatic out because even if she makes contact, Texas is playing close enough to get us. But mostly because she cant break that bad habit late in the season. I honestly would be more in favor of her and Merris swapping their batting order, but Murph has lived and died on having a slapper as the 1st batter since Braud.

    She is okay, but probably out for the season.

    Stupidest rule ever. THE LINE has ALWAYS been IN in baseball/softball. The ONLY sport where that is true. Now any part of the foot ON (doesn't have to be over) the line and you are out. Stupid!

    Failed in every phase of the game last night. Coaching, pitching, hitting, and fielding.
