Pretty pathetic game, I left work to go home and watch it with the girls, very anticlimactic…..actually boring!

Looked like a stacked MLB team playing a single A team in a exhibition game!

Juarez absolutely owned FSU today!

Could it have been due to recruiting? WCWS is a dead period I think, so it would have to be over first.

You know, it’s a great venue and a great experience, but OU and OSU really do have a significant home field advantage there. Last night I think it carried them to that late win, and today FSU was shot.

it is what it is, and good for Gasso for building it, but especially for those later games when the other fans have left town, it isn’t exactly an even playing field.

That lineup probably only loses Mendez next year...😳

So what you're saying is.....back to back?
Not ready to go there. Depends on how they replace Juarez and Saile. I expect them to get a pitcher from the portal and Jordan Bahl is supposed to be the real deal but who knows. I am not sure the pitchers they have left on the roster, outside of May, will cut it.

Guess I missed the part where it says tickets are for Ou and Osu fans only.

They aren't, of course, but you have to admit it's much easier to OU or OSU fans to just show up for games than for an influx of fans from Los Angeles or Tallahassee to make the travel arrangements on a day's notice.

Don't mean to diminish the accomplishment because OU was clearly the best team in the country, and I'm very glad they beat FSU. But I think you're being disingenuous if you're trying to say that always having the national championship tournament in one of Oklahoma's major metropolitan areas is not an advantage to the Sooners and the Cowboys.
