Just thought it was interesting.

Don't we feel the same way about Alabama football?

Definitely don't think that way about Mark Williams, OU men's gymnastics coach either. He became the OU head coach in 2000. He has won 8 national championships including the last 3. He has 7 national runner-ups, 2 third place finishes and a 4th place finish in his 18 years. Was also elected to the Hall of Fame. K.J. has a ways to go to catch Mark.

Yeah, I DO feel that way about Alabama football. But, really what was interesting to me was that someone on a national board was complaining about OU's dominance in women's athletics".

Just thought it was funny considering all the stuff I have read lately on OU boards about the OU women's basketball team and comparisons to the OU women's gymnastics and softball teams.

The poster appears to be from a SEC school. Most of OU's competition in gymnastics is from the SEC---Alabama, LSU, Florida---Georgia not so much any more, although the Georgia/Alabama duels probably built a pillar of women's gymnastics. They might place more emphasis on KJ than might someone from another conference.

Question: which draws more fans at Alabama, Florida, or LSU---the women's basketball team or the women's gymnastics team?

Gymnastics attendance much greater. Generally speaking 2-3 times as large as WBB.

OU listed attendance at last 4 home gymnastics meets ranged from 3,035 for Denver to 4,258 for Georgia. Attendance as the last 4 OU home WBB games ranged from 3,074 or OSU to 6,038 for Texas and 4,804 for Baylor.

WG is at an attendance disadvantage in that OSU, Texas or Baylor have gymnastics teams. OU's conference gymnastic opponents are Denver, ISU and WVU. Their big meets were against UCLA, Georgia, Alabama and LSU. Top 10 teams but not rivals.

Arizona's Katiyana Mauga needs only 4 HR's to tie Lauren Chamerlain's career record of 95 home runs. Arizona host Baylor in the the super-regional in Tucson.

We could handle another Baylor performance like the two no-hitters they threw in the regionals against Kent State and James Madison. Besides I would much prefer to play Baylor more than Arizona in the first round of the WCWS.

That list shows just how dominant Arizona has been over the last 20-30 years (not as much recently).
