The Duke is an interesting one. In case you missed it, Duke did run rule Georgia in the middle of May.

There's a good chance we'll see A&M face the Sooners. That idea leaves me shaking my head a bit, smirk and all. Whew.

Arizona State might want to keep an eye on LSU never knowing which team is going to show up. Not hosting a regional, at least, has to be a craw ...

Kentucky in Blacksburg: they can be a pretty good team at times.

Odds are, Bama facing Tennessee in the Supers.

Stanford is going to be a tough out for Bama. Split two games at seventh seed Oklahoma State and two games with MO at Columbia. Won series with #5 UCLA and #8 Arizona State.

Those were the colors for the Southeast All American team. Trust me she (nor I) picked those horrible colors. My daughter wears Bama softball shirts almost every single day and the one day she gets to hit with those 2 she somehow didn't. Keep in mind we didn't know they were going to be there. On Monday she got to hit with Jin Sileo and Grace Connelly of Georgia Tech.

They're the west coast version of LSU in that their schizophrenic.

And here's the rest of the story. They "won series with UCLA" then lost the series to Cal followed by winning the series with AZ State then getting swept by Washington.

Continuing comparison's ...

I'm cautiously optimistic Bama can make it through the weekend without taking a loss. It's a taller order this season than any I can recently remember. Vawter is a good pitcher but I like what Salter brings...to me, the second pitcher in rotation is the focus of the series.

... ā˜ šŸ§š šŸŽ¼ ... if they could get a few games out of Lexi ...

As for the Murray State bus accident, I was told a log from a log truck came through the windshield of their bus as they were traveling down the highway. Everyone is luckily okay and will be fine to play in the regional. The ones that went to the hospital were just treated for scratches.
