    OU - UW in Supers..lol

    There arent 5 better teams than Wash. IMO much less 15.

    If VPI hits like they did in Tempe, they might give UCLA a run.

    Virginia Tech has a stud pitcher, too. Keely Rochard, 28-8 on the year, 1.24 ERA, 30 complete games, 326 K's and only 67 walks. she pitched 226 of her team's 319 innings.

    Im still baffled at the ACC seedings, among some others. Was Clemson not able to host either?? And Hookies looked better than all of them. And why was Duke not the 2 seed in Tuscaloosa & Clem a 1 seed based on reg season results?

    Very tough draw, no doubt. Oklahoma State is an excellent team and the Sooners are just mashing the ball and setting all kinds of offensive records.

    Very daunting indeed! OSU beat us in 2019 WCWS 1st game. Oklahoma's pitching is suspect (gave up 5 and 7 runs vs Wichita St in regionals). They haven't faced any top pitchers all season. We will see how they hit against Gabbie Plain (32-3 ERA 1.23), who may be able to stifle Sooner bats for 7 innings. But to beat the Sooners twice in 3 days will take a Herculean performance.

    Also, OSU's coach is a former Gator assistant coach, college baseball teammate of Walton and both are Patty Gasso prodigies.

    After the conclusion of the Oklahoma-Wichita St regional, one of the softball analysts said that they had initially predicted the Sooners were going to steamroll through the post-season and win WCWS. But after watching them play Wichita St, they no longer have Oklahoma as their top choice to win WCWS.

    I'm hopeful but doubtful Gators can win WCWS, but with return of Lugo Hightower and the addition of Wallace next year's team should be awesome.

    We, also, have the #2 rated high school pitcher coming in and another Top 50 rated infielder. Plus, I expect Coach Walton will find a gem in the transfer portal who can added some punch in the batting order.

    50 in 3 games doesnt do it for her/him huh?

    One think I will say that could pose an issue for OU is most likely having to beat the top 2(IMO) Pac teams in a 2/3 series. Getting Wash. at home probably doesnt derail them, but UCLA in final might. UCLA spanked them pretty good in last finals played.

    I'm curious to see if Lexie Blair could be that gem, not trying to start a rumor or anything just did a little bit of research for players I'd love to see join us. There's an outfield position open after Hoover leaves. I was reading up on her and her former teammate was Jade Caraway, an NC State player who later transferred to UF. Gotta think that the opportunity to make OKC is growing more on her after yesterday. No offense to Michigan, fine program, but I don't think that they've got the same energy.

    Would love to have her. I expect Avery Goelz to be a star next year. She was Florida high school player of the year, 1st team All American and the #7 rated player in the 2020 class. She started the first half of the season and was hitting over .300, then tailed off when the SEC schedule came around. She's a gifted player and I gotta think she do the off season work to be a permanent fixture in the lineup next year, either at !B or in the outfield.
