Don’t worry. Got them right where we want them now.
once again ESPN has moved the broadcast temporarily from ESPN2 to ESPN News which is not part of my cable lineup and can't access on watch ESPN either. Don't know why anyone outside of the state of Oklahoma would want to watch an 8-2 game.
Sometimes we get beat. We usually don't look stupid in the process.
But now the comeback and win will be all the more impressive.
Fouts with a 3 run lead is going to be tough, plus playing in front of thousands of screaming gumps.
Yeah...got a feeling we have been to the comeback well once too often
Game literally just started, and you're already throwing in the towel
5 thru 8 batting average .197.
We’re gonna need quite a bit of magic against Fouts. Really wish we had another bat in Cottrill available. It’s hard to rely solely on Echols and Lindaman.
The game is in Gumpville and call made from Birmingham.
Why are we continuing on with Hightower and why start her in the first place? It’s obvious she’s struggling. Great throw by Hoover earlier though
I said I have a feeling....that isn't throwing in the towel.
This is Bama at home, they are playing really well and at home, Fouts on the mound, and the odds we shut them out the rest of the way are not all that great. Being realistic, coming back over and over generally isn't sustainable. Hope they prove me wrong, but if I was sitting in Vegas I wouldn't put any money on it (nor would I expect you would)
May be just trying to let her work her way thru it....as much as we want to win, this game is less important than the games upcoming and we need her to find her stuff again.
Gumps + Beth = irritating.
Maybe she needs some rest. This can’t be helping the head game.
Batters 5-9 have no chance against Fouts.
Gotta hope she tires out (physically and mentally) later in the game.
You could make that argument as well, I'm worried about her mental....but she really hasn't thrown a ton lately. Last few weekend series she only started game 1 as I recall. And her outings in the tourney have been somewhat limited.
I might get Rylee some work today
Hey, Longley just had a blind squirrel moment off Fouts of all people.
Nice double play.
I’m tempted to watch something else and then switch back for the 7th inning walkoff.
Yep, different competitor on the mound. Not that we can’t do it but this is a pretty big hill to climb. Got to start chipping away.
