I went to bed after the 15th inning.  I thought the Florida pitcher looked more tired than the Oklahoma pitcher and am glad I didn't stay up to watch the final home run.  I wonder how well the pitchers will hold up tonight.

By the way, I noticed that both teams had similar records and couldn't understand how the Sooners were only the 10 seed.

I went to bed after the 15th inning.

So you got to see OU load the bases and fail to score in the top of the 15th. But you missed seeing them load the bases and fail to score in the top of the 16th. You did see the bottom of the 7th and 12th when Florida was trailing and down to their last strike and tied the game.

I thought it was pretty exciting for a 17-inning game.

Florida's pitchers were just BRUTAL!

Gotta give it to the Gators... several times OU had them beat, twice with 2 outs and 2 strike leads only to give up tying runs and twice loading the bases and getting no runs.

Interesting to note that the Gator Coach was a member of OU's last National Championship baseball team and started his coaching career as OU asst softball coach.

Softball only plays 7 innings...so it was over two and a half games for one.

Similar records... but SEC decidedly tougher than the Big XII

Congrats. 

I wondered what the pitching would look like after both teams used their top two pitchers on Monday.  Lots of runs early, until they brought their aces back.

What did you think of Walton's decision to start Ocasio?

I don't know.  I haven't watched any games until the super regionals, so I don't know who is who.

Oklahoma may have the better team, but Florida has the more attractive players!   :)
