I’m pulling for UCLA because I can’t stand OU’s head coach! I have never liked herWell, it was a great year, and a lot more than anyone expected. Very proud of the effort.
Now, I don't know who to pull for tomorrow. Should I pull for OU to blow UCLA away so everyone will know our 3 games were the real championship series, or pull for UCLA because OU beat us.
She also said Alabama was the toughest opponent OU had faced all year. Patty is the best coach OU has in my humble opinion. She was hired out of California to save a program that was on the chopping block. She's being paid $1 million a year and she's worth ever penny. Her demeanor affects people a lot like coach Saban. The fact is that, like Saban, she's a winner and a helluva coach.Yet she gave the Tide props saying there's no way Bama was/should have been an 8 seed.
I think we could have won it all this year, if we had been seeded properly in the tournament. Being #8 meant we had a tough road all the way, with one of the tougher super regionals. We got thru that just to have the privilege of playing the #1 seed in what is close to a home game for them. We played a good game but came up a run short. While OU got to sit home Saturday, we played two elimination games. And to pile it on the BAMA ladies, a rain delay means we're up way to late on Saturday night. We played very well in game 1 Sunday, but as Murphy said, he was worried about the energy level in game 2. They gave it all they had, but were running on fumes. Overall though, this team accomplished so much more than anyone thought they would, and everyone on that team stepped up and contributed something to the success. We only lose two senior starters in Merris Schroder and Reagan Dykes. We need a couple of people to step up and take charge of those roles, especially on the leadership end, and for everyone coming back to focus on doing better next year. I think this taste of the WCWS will certainly help that. RTR ladies, and thanks for a great year. KrymsonmanThey endured a grueling series after dropping that first encounter against OU. It is so very difficult to survive all those extra games in the loosers bracket. They gave a great effort, but came up just a little short. Girl's softball is, in my opinion, a game of talent, momentum, strategy, and most of all, coaching. I believe we had all those factors, but simply ran out of energy. Honestly, there are at least four teams that had the potential to win it all this year. Hope we will be in the hunt again next year.
