    Oklahoma has reached the championship series 6 of the last 9 seasons. And it also must be great to never have to leave Oklahoma to play for the title. lol

    It’s called the neighborhood rule. Happens in baseball a lot.

    With FSU knocking off Alabama, don't think I'll even watch the championship series. The FSU coach sure has her team peaking at the right time. And they executed a perfect approach to Montana Fouts - lay off the rise ball and force her to throw secondary pitches into the zone. She missed her spots and they made her pay. Got into her head early.

    KSP Stadium
    It used to piss me off that Oklahoma always got to play at home. But one look at their stadium -- and the renovation this year -- makes it 100% understandable. If I were the NCAA and people complained, I'd reply: "You build a 13,000 seat dedicated softball stadium and we'll talk."

    Having watched many regionals/super regionals, I am shocked at how little thought goes into making the game look good on TV when it comes to stadium construction. Even Oklahoma -- TV watches the batter basically in front of a wall and no fans are in the camera shot. Luckily, KSP is one of the good stadiums for TV.

    Okay, thanks. It certainly does happen a lot and for good reason. Why bother trying to touch the bag and risk injury from the sliding runner? In the play in the JMU game, the second baseman was just standing about a foot from the bag, not even moving, took the throw ("out!"), and then threw to first.

    I am sure that the Bama boards are burning Murphy’s ass

    as much as I despise FSU, I don’t mind the pompous Bammers getting their asses beat

    I don’t think anyone beats OK 2 out of 3

    What kind of softball team has a shortshop named Muffley? (Last Saturday she lived up to her name, muffing three or four grounders.)

    Very rarely do you see both teams fight their way out of the loser's bracket(especially after losing on day 1), yet here we are. lol

    I’m so tired of Oklahoma winning it and making the final year after year.

    I wonder if any of their coaches will be poached now that there are job openings at Arizona and Georgia.

    Oklahoma's hitting coach is Patty Gasso's son and her pitching coach is Florida's former pitching coach Jen Rocha, who is also their associate head coach and I think the highest paid softball assistant in D1.

    Yeah, I won’t be watching the finals at all. Hope the noles lose but can’t root for Oklahoma.

    Noles take a 2-0 lead! This is sure to shake up the Sooners' confidence!

    LOL at Holly Rowe talking to Gasso about the crowd and how amazing that most of the people were Oklahoma fans-well duh.

    Man, FSU must have ran out of bubble gum because they are kicking butt.
