Another opinion: The odds of OU winning a natty before they leave is slim and none. Ditto winning the Big 12.
It is a fact that she made the statement.

Your attitude toward her opinion should cause you some concern. A young member of the team who expressed an opinion can be regarded as a stupid, uninformed kid, or perhaps as someone who recognizes the talent on the team as well as the talent of those coming in and perhaps an awareness of the spirit and determination that she and others have. Which road did you choose to take?

I wonder if Madi may have some facts available to her that message board posters might not have.

---as Leroy reminds us, Madi has played a game against Gabby Gregory

---if it is true that Chloe Bloom has been working out with the team since her arrival, Madi might have seen enough to know of her potential.

---if is possible that Madi and Liz Scott have crossed paths in high school or AAU action.

---Madi may have seen a lot more of Aspen Williston than we have.

---Madi may have some idea of prospects they are recruiting.


Or, I guess that we could just assume that Madi has no idea what she is talking about.

I did notice that a freshman who finished #22 in the Big Twelve in scoring (11.2) and #6 in the conference in rebounding (8.0) received no attention for all-freshman honors.

If you are expecting Sherri Coale to resign on Monday, it is possible. Yet, her press conference sounded like someone who is still active in recruiting, and I doubt that she wants to leave before the incoming recruits graduate or at least get their feet firmly on the ground.

She may not have a say in when she leaves if she produces another season like this one.

My guess is that if we crater again next season Joe C will give her the opportunity to resign/retire with grace and probably be given a nice, cushy job with a hefty salary doing some made up crap for the university.

I agree. Most likely she stays on for the next season because of Maddie & Robertson showing potential and Scott and Gregory coming in. if nothing develops next season and we still lose more games than we win she's most definitely out of the door. If we have another pathetic season, and she's not out of the door at that point, I'm no longer and OU women's basketball fan.

The third or forth best player on a 4-14 conference record team doesn't usually get much recognition.

Usually no one knows their names or can pronounce them. EJ is an example.

If what Auntie said is true, Sherri might (I use that word with great trepidation because Sherri doing anything to change what's going on is highly unlikely in my opinion), BUT if it's an especially harsh evaluation from Joe, she might have to let Pam or Chad go to signify her willing to shake things up.

She sure is Hell is never firing Jan.

----Murphy can't recruit and isn't doing anything about it.

Now, a couple of facts:

---Florida's rotation includes two freshmen and a sophomore
---Florida is 21-4
---Florida State won the title last year
---Oklahoma won the title the two previous years
---Florida had won it the previous two years and had the all-time greatest championship series against OU when they lost it to OU.

---it has been three years (reference "going downhill for years)
Have I lost my mind? or not been paying attention? Isn't Tim Walton the coach at Florida? Who the heck is Murphy?

You are right. Somehow, the name of the Bama coach was stuck in my mind when thinking of Florida.

Bama probably has pretty high expectations for their softball team. If they haven't been winning lately (and I don't know as I don't follow them), they do probably want him gone. That's the life of a coach. They all know it going in. Win and stay, lose too much and go. Replacement is based on win/loss records or a scandal. That's it in a nutshell.
Why is it different for Sherri?

I agree with Syb. Show mw some facts and I will make a recommendation. All I have seen here is rumor, assumptions and speculation. But here is ONE fact I adhere to: Joe C is one of the best, if not THE best AD in Div 1 sports. I place my full faith and confidence in Joe to assess the situation, analyze the situation and take the necessary action, if any.

I am a dedicated fan of OU sports, WBB and softball in particular. I have followed the WBB program since before Sherri and remember the season that OU ended the Sooners WBB program. During the initial day of the WBB Big Dance all of the other WBB teams wore red and white ribbons on their uniforms to honor and protest? OU's discontinuance. Even tho I was over 350 years old I sat in front of the TV and cried like a baby. Several years later OU was playing for the WBB championship. I am giving Sherri the benefit of the doubt until the facts, if any, show me otherwise. "Live on, university!"

NO, I was not over 350. I was over 50. Also, I follow OU football in particular. And I can't type anymore apparently.

25-0 for the season YTD. Wins over Maryland, Arizona, Minnesota (2), Michigan State and Missouri (3). Not a particularly tough schedule. Play A&M, MSU, South Carolina, Georgia, Florida, Kentucky and LSU. So things will get tough for them finishing out the season. Could easily have a half dozen or more losses.

I need to clarify. As Bob the Nailer pointed out, Tim Walton, the coach of Florida is the one under fire on message boards. I suspect that he is very popular with the Florida administration.

Alabama has had a couple of leaner years, by their hopes. This happens to be the best year that Bama has had recently. I don't know that Murphy has ever been under any fire..

I will try to get back here to post any updates on OU recruiting or news during the offseason. I thought of this board when I read Guerin's weekend column, because as you all know, Coach Coale coached Norman High before she came to OU.

So, who is coaching Norman High now, and more specifically, who is coaching them to the 6A state title?

Quote:
Remember Michael Neal, the Oklahoma 3-point marksman who was Big 12 Newcomer of the Year in 2006? He just coached the Norman High girls to a Class 6A state championship.

That’s nice if you are an OU fan, but even nicer for me.

When Neal decided to coach, he cut his teeth with the Alcott Middle School seventh grade boys in 2011. My son played on that team.

I remember driving Holden to practice before dawn. I never remember him complaining about it, mostly because he loved every minute of that season. He loved every minute with Coach Neal.

It’s pretty great when parents can trust coaches to help develop their children. I owe Neal for helping develop Holden that one winter in Norman.

I love that Neal is still impacting kids. I loved that he just won a gold ball while doing so.

Maybe hed be a great addition to the staff? Replace Colton and put him in there. I'm sure he'd help with recruiting. He's got more credibility that's for sure.

I think you should change your post around some, its coming off a little insulting to Madi...

Im excited that she should atlest be around for another year...

One of the problems with the internet is that it has made everyone an opinion journalist. And what follows is a lot of opinion stated as facts.

But here is a fact that says much to me.

If you accept that Simpson is not a quality Div I center......

75% of the quality players recruted before this year's freshman class are gone. Ana is the sole survivor.

That is of great concern to me.
