Sooners' late-season surge still going
Is Oklahoma's baseball team about to give Sooner Nation another run from nowhere?
Sooner baseball skipper Skip Johnson had this great quote on the back end of an April 1 victory over then-seventh-ranked Stanford, Oklahoma’s second in three games against the Cardinal with the series-ender slated for the next day.
“If it’s this series,” he said, “then it’s this series.”
Only it wasn’t that series.
The Sooners fell hard the next day and went 4-5 over their next nine games.
But maybe it’s this series, the one OU finds itself in now, with one game remaining at 14th-ranked West Virginia Sunday, a moved-up-for-weather 10 a.m. rubber-match you can watch on ESPN+.
Of course, should the Sooners win today, maybe “this series” will wind up being the one they already played in Austin April 21-23.
I can explain.
