Kaylon Williams, T’ona Edwards and Shaina Pellington have publicly agreed. Then you have Lyndsey Cloman, Gileysa Penzo and even Madi Williams liking and retweeting everything that’s said. They just keep slowing coming out one by one.

Add Jacqueline Jeffcoat to that list. She responded to Gioya’s tweet:

Hey sis. I played for Sherri 2010-12. She hit me with several racist comments after we went to Monticello in Virginia ... Thomas Jefferson’s plantation. How insensitive. Told me to take down a post Bc I felt strongly about it. Im with you.

With Morgan being Sherri's daughter-in-law nothing she says can have much of an impact. She knows what which side of the bread is buttered at her house.

I was being tongue-in-cheek. I know neither of them will comment-or, if they do, it will be in support.

I think they almost have to hire a head coach of color or the program is, once again, doomed.

Look at Sherri’s recent tweets. It’s like she almost knew something was coming.

Why didn't they transfer? Why is it coming out now? Why did they help recruit other black players? It seems to convenient to me. None of the old time players are on that list. Why would C Paris come back and coach with Coale.

It was said at the time because the season overseas was cancelled by COVID

1) Some of the players DIS in fact transfer (Jeffcoat and Pellington), there was something crazy going on with Pellington.
2) It is coming out now because of Black Lives Matter and the actions of Lincoln Riley and the OU Football team.
3) Everybody wants to win so yes they would recruit good players.
4) This is a good question but reality is that women's basketball is much different than it was in the early years of Sherri's career, she has not adapted.
5) She needed a job and Sherri gave her one, her basketball career had just ended.

Recruiting has been really strange for quite some time. OU would be on a top player and the staff making progress then Sherri would come in and say "we are not recruiting this person anymore." This is why the program has faltered. OU is getting whipped in Oklahoma for recruits and by the way, the crowds are gone. However, the comments by former players meshes with this recruiting effort. She is recruiting like she is coaching at Oklahoma Christian. It will take years for OU to compete in the Big 12 against Mulkey at Baylor or Schaefer at Texas. It is going to get ugly.

Why Joe C. gave her a 4 year extension is beyond me. There is no doubt that she has big donor backers. Over the past two years, she has gone 20-40 overall and 9-27 in conference play. They averaged 8K a game when Courtney Paris was playing and if you really counted the fans in the LNC now except for Baylor and Texas, you would get several hundred.

Having to start from scratch DJD would be a good selection as she has experienced the Vic Schaefer method for building a team. And for certain after coaching under Vic for 5 seasons she would commence implementing the missing ingredient of a quality defensive immediately.

DJD definitely checks a lot of boxes for a new Sooner WBB coach. But there may also be an experienced proven head coach at a smaller school that better meets OU's needs and wants a $500K+ coaching job. I would love to get to find out who wants to replace Sherri ASAP.

Perfect chance for Joe to undue his mistake in extending her.

I don't think Sherri should still be coaching at OU due to a decade of progressive decline. I absolutely don't buy this racism narrative.

Just read full text of Sherri’s comments and Joe’s and I have to give Sherri credit here. She basically admitted the players words were true and that she erred and was thoughtless on these occasions.

Whether the Mae Culpa has an impact that the revelations did or not will take time to determine.

We all know, however, other coaches are going to use this to kill Sherri in recruiting.

So, even with the apology and hopeful acceptance, this is still going to hurt.

Also, interestingly, was the way Joe framed his defense. Reading between the lines there what I got is a foreshadowing that Sherri is not going anywhere soon and OU isn’t going to make her.

So, unless she steps up and steps aside, we are stuck with her for the next 4 years.

I guess that settles it then. We are doomed to crappy teams and lousy records for the foreseeable future.

Maybe the soccer team will be worth watching. And there’s always softball.

Joe C needs to get everyone together. See if things can be put to rest. If not, he needs to ask Coale to retire. Then begin a search. Since this is a COVID-19 year. It might give a new coach time to recruit some players. I still think with a quality big. OU can move up behind Baylor and Texas. Which would give them a winning season and a tournament invite. Then they can build from that.

It seems like ages since Sherri recruited a decent big. However, having Kareem Abdul Jabbar wouldn't matter if the team turns the ball over repeatedly. I doubt that Sherri will be able to recruit at all now. The word must have already been out there because it has been in great decline for a while. They are getting whipped for players in state now.

The bottom line is that women's basketball changed and Sherri has not. It is an athletes' game now. Mulkey was most likely right when she said, "“In women’s basketball, once you lose it, you’re not getting it back ... I can name some in this league that are struggling to get it back that have won championships.” Sherri will never compete for the Big 12 title again.

As for Joe, he is proving that he does not care about women's basketball. He would pull the plug on just about every other coach on campus in this situation.

I think that Joe should just let this seethe for awhile. His response need to be noncommittal. Let the momentum build to the point that some of Sherri's donor supporters finally cave and agree that something needs to be done.
