Coach has made all the right moves in historic regular season



So Gasso has put together, perhaps, the best regular-season softball team in NCAA history — want more: the Sooners’ .976 fielding percentage is seventh in the nation, a pretty amazing figure for a group that doesn’t get a lot of work — and she has done it by getting it to buy into a regular season it might have preferred to treat with one giant yawn.

It didn’t.

After dealing with ultimate disappointment last June, the Sooners returned with ultimate focus and it’s nothing short of amazing and Gasso is the reason why; which is why it seems so wrong to now offer her such an ultimate standard by which to judge the season.

Of course, given what’s transpired, there’s no good reason to believe the Sooners, nor their coach, might fall short.
