“It is not easy to start a game in a hole,” said Looper. “Kayla settled in and started attacking the hitters. Two losses and one win would put the team at either a semi-acceptable 6 and 6 or a joyful 7 and 5.

IT WOULD BE NICE IF OKLAHOMA STATE COULD: Beat Oklahoma in the quarterfinals. OU has beaten Oklahoma State five times in a row, and seven of the last eight times the teams have played. It should be a loud, boisterous atmosphere in Ford Center Thursday, with both schools well represented in the stands. There wouldn’t be a better time for OSU to reclaim Bedlam bragging rights.

The next three games will set the tone for the remainder of the season. Arkansas at Dallas, Oklahoma State at home, and Kansas State at Manhattan. The game with the Razorbacks, under another second-year coach in a rebuilding program, promises to be a great football game but a loss for the Ags. The Cowboys, fuelled by oil money from T. Boone Pickens, have a much-hyped offense and defense, and could well be another loss, even at the friendly confines of Kyle. Under the “second coming” of Bill Snyder it’s too early for another “miracle,” even at the field already named for the coach, and the Ags should come out with a win.
