What more do you want besides game recaps, box scores and stats that are on the OU website?

I'm not being sarcastic. These are basically glorified scrimmages. What more do you want?

It would not stretch the OU budget to put a fixed camera with wide angle lens pointing at second base for fall games. Since the annual interview of Patty introducing the newbies wasnt done; and no interviews of the coaching staff or players were done since the championship series was over. Since then there has been no coverage of the team or its members. It's as if it wasnt worth doing anything on it since it was not playing for a championship. Just ignore it completely.

I'd like to see the newcomers. I'd like to see the usual interview with Patty where she introduces the newcomers. I'd like to see an interview with our new pitching coach(if there was one it wasnt featured). What about an interview with the assistant coaches about whatever? We had some interesting assistants and it would be intertesting to hear their reactions to OU. And, Why not? Scrimmages can be interresting and informative. Why not show scrimmages of a national championship team? Why not? The coverage of this team is contemptible.

OU is not giving the softball team any less exposure than they give the women's gymnastics team which is winning national championships at a similar clip. The real problem is coverage of all minor sports of which softball is 1 of about 15 that get very little coverage with 4 (men's golf, men's gymnastics, women's gymnastics and softball) of those sports recently winning national championships.

Really only football, MBB, WBB and baseball get consistent coverage by the university media outlet.

Your best bet for any coverage of minor sports and it isnít a lot, but OU Sooner Sports Spotlight. You have to have the Fox sports package or subscribe to SoonerSportstv, but it is worth it for me.

The question is how does she get a sideline pass. There are about another 125 girlfriends that don't get one?

Mead was a fairly regular attendee at softball games last spring, now we know why. Likely a softball player has little trouble getting a field pass

I would doubt just being a softball player warrants a field pass. Too many football players date other athletes that might also want a field pass and that is a bad precedent to set. But who knows Mendes obviously has one.

Well, she didn’t have a pass around her neck, so I’m guessing she wasn’t on the field the whole game.

My guess is she was with the recruits on the field as Tiare Jennings has a picture of herself on the sidelines posted on her twitter feed.

Yes but we have 7 more home games (22) scheduled than last year. Also last year in conference we played Baylor and 1 OSU game in Norman and were on the road to Texas, Kansas, ISU and Tech. This year we have Texas, Kansas, Tech and 2 OSU games in Norman closing the season with 10 of 13 at home. Last year it was 1 of 13 at home to finish the regular season.

Much better season for the OU softball fan. 50% more home games and 11 home conference games vs 4. I'll take it as I did not expect as tough of a schedule will a very young team with 4 freshmen likely to start.

I am accustomed to playing three or four top ten teams in three or four western tournaments.

OU does have the 3 western tournaments this year but only Washington and Arizona are top teams so the level of competition is down slightly. My guess is with the very young starting lineup comprised of as many as 4 freshman motived Patty is motivated to get this team off to a fast start rather than immediately push the team to elevate their play. But who knows. I trust that Patty has pushed the right buttons going into 2019-20.

Patty promised everyone a ton of home games this year because OU only played like 13 regular season games at home last year! She heard about it from the season ticket holders. The Iowa State switch two years ago put it in this situation. Not very many top teams want to travel to Norman to play softball against the Sooners! The road schedule is really not much different than any year! They played 5 at Grand Canyon last year in Phoenix and did a Cal State tour at Marymount, Fullerton and Nortbridge! All will be fine!

From Eric Bailey: Sooners ace pitcher Giselle Juarez 'embracing the moment' as she enters senior season

Excerpt...

Quote:
NORMAN — Giselle Juarez has only been on Oklahoma’s campus for 13 months, but she has made her presence felt on the tradition-rich softball program.

The pitcher’s dominance after transferring from Arizona State helped the Sooners reach the Women’s College World Series, where OU ended as the national runner-up to UCLA last season.

The whirlwind will end during her senior season, which begins Thursday against Nevada in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

“Last year, I wouldn’t say I felt like a freshman, but it kind of had that feeling because I was somewhere new,” the left-hander said. “This year, I’m a senior and I think, ‘Oh, my gosh, I’m almost done at OU.’

“I wish I had another two more years here because my experience here has been amazing.”
