Sherri did not arrive until the 1996-97 season. My hat is off the Sherri Coale and her first 15 years at OU but she is mediocre now at best. As for this year, you better get ready for another 20 loss season. Sometimes, it is simply time to pass the torch.


I am shocked reading this! Iíve read on this board so many times that the OU womenís program was dead and Sherri brought it back to life single-handedly. Youíre telling me that OU made the tournament just a couple years before Sherri got there?!? That is not what Iíve been reading on this board.
OU had been in the tournament one time---one. Lost. We hadn't been a contender for anything and never would have seen a Final Four.

Not just us.
I strongly suspect that the nation is well aware. But, the nation has always given Sherri more respect than she has gotten on any OU boards. I don't see the nation disparaging Vivian Stringer, and she hasn't had a team in years.

I don't care what Baylor fans think or what happens to their program. How many rapes did they ignore?

If you think Gasso gets respect, I have a thought. If the football team were to win two straight national titles, would they have trouble raising $7 million for a new practice field, much less a stadium? The further away from those two titles we get, the less likely we see that new stadium.

The only thing on which I agree with any of these posts is the concern over Coltan. Sherri seems to be high on his ability to communicate with the team. I don't see any such activity that has produced any valuable results.

Even if she wanted to help Coltan, she can't do it at OU. Any future that he has must be demonstrated elsewhere, or his mother would get the credit. He needs to find an assistant job somewhere, even at a NAIA college. Show that he can operate on his own.

With this many coaches, communication should not be a problem.

Wasn't OU having some issues with funds with the football expansion at one time?

Please stop with the nonsense. Patty has won 4 national titles and has been to CWS (the equivalent of the Elite Eight) 12 times including the last 4 and played in the Championship Series last year. When Sherri wins a national title please let me know. Right now her basketball can't bring the ball up the floor without turning it over.

Most people don't understand the fund raising issues that have occurred in college athletics in the past three years. Those donations for physical structures are no longer tax deductible which means the large donors who have millions are not donating as much. This was the impact of the recent tax cut law. OU jumped about 50% in donation in the latest report because people donated early to deduct their donation from their taxes in the final year. OU restructured to deal with the new law but donating to stadiums is not tax deductible now. The tax deductible stuff goes to support of the athletes. The days of big money for stadiums and arenas is probably over. That is why Texas is having an outside company build their new arena.

The idea of a new basketball arena at OU was DOA before ever started. They were trying to jump in with the City of Norman. That certainly did not happen and it won't in the future. The softball stadium will happen eventually. It is the toughest reserved seat ticket at OU. if you are not in general admission then you are not getting in. All other tickets are easy in comparison.

I believe when there the number of fans at games are one half of the number going now Joe will have to replace the HC. I can't believe Sherri can drag in big donations to support a team with an empty stadium.

It is easy to blame all of our problems on turnovers. Such a simple solution. Just cut down on turnovers.
