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

I assume you're being sarcastic.

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

Against overmatched JUCO teams no less.

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.
