Grueling schedule but if anyone can do it, Oklahoma can. Pitching will be key. Offense is on fire.

DonniHoo? Damn. Talk about peaking at the right time!

Oklahoma comes out of the gate and crushes a home run. 1-0 bottom of 1st.

Oklahoma wins. Forced another game at 6 CT.

I guess this thread is dead? Weird.

JMU might just be in trouble. Alexander didn’t look particularly sharp throughout the game, and OU has the deeper pitching staff.

I can only imagine how tired Alexander is at this point.

I'm still watching.

I think people just have nothing much to say about the inevitable (and predictable) finals..... which is probably gonna be Oklahoma vs Alabama.

I will go with Alabama to win it all. Montana never lost in a big game.

I see. The boneyard must have been dead during the Stewie years with that mentality. Just sayin.

What is wrong with Beth Mowins? She was recently announced as calling the Olympics for NBC with Michelle Smith.

An excellent softball announcer, good with WBB and even passable with football. A pro, in other words.
I agree-I think Mowins is great.

Nails on a chalkboard to me. I think she made it through one or two Monday night football games and they quickly moved her somewhere else. I don't call that passable. She also seems pretty clueless to me on most sports and has routinely miss-spoken. Pro? Hardly.

My .02. I hate mayo also, you may love it.

I wonder if JMU will pitch Alexander. I don't think a backup has come in yet for her. Great pitcher but that's a lot to ask of anyone.

Bet the house. Divine intervention with those rain delays giving her a day of rest

For me, Beth Mowins if fine with softball if they give her a solid color announcer (Michelle Smith or Amanda Scarborough). Not so much for basketball and football.

Moving the "as necessary" games to today was the only way to go if you wanted to see competitive games. Really surprised the NCAA made a smart decision for a change (think Patty Gasso's venting had anything to do with that? ;)). The girls are used to those kind of schedules as this kind of thing is pretty standard in travel ball, but it doesn't lead to the best games.

Beth Mowins without Antonelli to amplify the squawking is fine. Her softball partners are always well grounded and understated.

Alexander left in one batter too long. Should've been taken out when game was 4-1.

She has nothing left that Oklahoma doesn't recognize anymore.

Well... game's over anyways. So whatever at this point.

Tough way to end it, but Alexander's body language changed in the 4th. You could tell she was getting frustrated. Oklahoma is just too good to keep down. I wonder what would have happened if they had pulled her sooner.

I have the utmost respect for Odicci Alexander!!! She is a champion and the star of the this WCWS imo. She is the one everyone is talking about. I already jumped on board and purchased a JMU softball shirt for my daughters. Great player!!
