The Stillwater Regional gets to kick things off for us.

Oklahoma State vs. Brigham Young
Arkansas vs. Tulsa

This is probably considered the second toughest regional after the Minneapolis Regional, so Oklahoma State will have work to do.

Brigham Young has post season experience, but this is not your typical Cougar team. I expect Oklahoma State to win this game easily, possibly in run rule fashion.

Arkansas vs. Tulsa is one of the best first round games in the tournament. I put them equal in the offensive department, but I think Arkansas has slightly better pitching.

A bunch of folks are picking Arkansas to win this regional.

I'm a disinterested third party, especially when it comes to rooting for OSU or just about any SEC school. But I simply can't see that happening. OSU is clearly the best team in this regional, and the Cowgirls are playing at home, for Pete's sake. They're extra tough in Stillwater against any team that doesn't have an interlocking OU on its jerseys.

I'll be the most surprised poster on robocoach if OSU doesn't advance out of this regional.

All I know is OSU can hit the snot out of the ball and I wouldn't bet against them.

OSU has no pitcher other than Show, so unless she throws every single inning...

You can say the same thing about ULL (Ellyson)

simply not true... you need to watch them more. They have enough pitching to easily make it out of this regional.

I have followed Oklahoma State for a pretty good chunk this year. They have Simunek and Clakley but they are inconsistent. Show is their best option, but since Tulsa and Arkansas really don't have offenses I think they will be fine in this regional after Arkansas's (or Arkansas') loss. Once they get to SR, I think it will be a different story.

Clakley's best win is against Texas, but she has losses to Illinois, Notre Dame, Tulsa, Baylor, and Oklahoma.

Oklahoma vs. Maryland-Baltimore County
Notre Dame vs. Wisconsin

Oklahoma by run rule

Too close to call. I'll go with Wisconsin.

U.C.L.A. vs. Weber State
Missouri vs. Cal. State Fullerton

Bruins, easily

Something tells me the Titans can sneak up on the Tigers, but I'm still going with Missouri.

Washington vs. Fordham
Mississippi State vs. Seattle

Fordham has become the top team in the Atlantic 10, but they are flying a long way for Washington to run rule them.

Seattle is playing in their home town, so Mississippi State better not sleep on them.

Florida State vs. Bethune-Cookman
South Carolina vs. South Florida

Interesting that Florida State faces the only losing record coming into the tournament, but I don't think they run rule them.

I'm picking this as the third toughest regional. South Florida is playing in their home state and they have above average pitching, but I think South Carolina has just enough offense to get by.

Florida vs. Boston University
Stanford vs. Boise State

Florida will be invigorated by this seed.

I may be giving Stanford more credit than they are due, but I just don't see how Boise State hangs with them.

Arizona vs. Harvard
Auburn vs. Colorado State

Arizona, easily

I like this matchup. Colorado State may surprise Auburn.

Minnesota vs. North Dakota State
Drake vs. Georgia

Far and away the toughest regional because all four teams can win it.

Minnesota, extra innings

Another one possibly headed to extra innings. I think Georgia blinks first. Drake

Alabama vs. Alabama State
Arizona State vs. Lipscomb

Alabama run rule.

This is the one I give in to. Lipscomb catches Arizona State napping.

Texas vs. Sam Houston State
Houston vs. Texas A&M

Sam Houston State might score. Texas will.

This is one of those sad situations where a team may not deserve to be in the tournament, but wins their first game and people think they justified their spot. Here's hoping Houston and Sam run rule Texas A&M and send the committee a message.

LSU vs. Monmouth
Texas Tech vs. Louisiana Tech

LSU.I'd make some comment but I really don't know what to expect from this team.

Texas Tech has much more offense.

MIssissippi vs. Chattanooga
Louisiana vs. Southeast Missouri State

Here's another one where the seed will energize the host. Chattanooga will put up a struggle, but Mississippi pulls away.

This will be a much closer game than people expect. Louisiana will close it out.

Tennessee vs. Longwood
North Carolina vs. Ohio State

Longwood is one of those programs that has a few years where they are good enough to scare quality teams. This is not one of those years. Tennessee has enough offense to make it seem easy.

ACC vs. Big 10. Football conferences that play other sports, but not well. I don't expect either team to hang with Tennessee, so I'll go with Ohio State.

Oklahoma State vs. Tulsa
Arkansas vs. Brigham Young

Tulsa believes they can do this, but Oklahoma State is motivated.

Arkansas will find their offense.

Kentucky vs. Toledo
Virginia Tech vs. Illinois

Kentucky is ready for the post season.

Illinois. I like Tyra Perry.

Michigan vs. St. Francis, PA
James Madison vs. DePaul

Michigan, run rule.

James Madison, 3 home runs. Maybe 5.

Northwestern vs. Detroit
Louisville vs. Southern Illinois

Northwestern, I'm just not sure what type of performance they will put in.

Southern Illinois is hungry, but I think Louisville will find a way.

I guess that's why you're called GOOBER, you just don't get it or just to ignorant. UL or Louisiana is what we go by athletically GOOB.

Didn't Houston already beat A&M?  So if A&M ends up winning the game, what does that mean?  Just that they were lucky?

As I am an auditor by profession who is not working today, and as I am bored this morning waiting on softball to begin, I decided to audit the post that says "Ellyson plays for ULL" and the replies which state she plays for "LA" and "UL or Louisiana is what our athletic teams go by".

These are the facts related to this situation: 

1. The name of the University associated with the Ragin Cajuns softball team is cleary the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. There is no question about that whatsoever. It is absolutely not correct to refer to the University or any athletic team as University of Louisiana or UL. 

2. The athletic teams of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette go by the nickname Louisiana or Louisiana Ragin Cajuns. The word Lafayette or ULL are specifically excluded when that University refers to its athletic teams and they request that others do the same. So just the word "Louisiana" not with University in front of it, and not UL - because University of Louisiana is not the name. 

3. As the NCAA exists for only athletic teams associated with colleges and universities, it is unique for one of those universities to decide that the university's name is not to be used when referring to its athletic teams. Louisiana is the nickname the University prefers for its teams. 

4. As for abbreviations, the University says in its statement on proper use of the University's name, that neither ULL or UL are to be used. It says that LA can be used but only for "stats and scores".

See the statement on this entire matter from the University below. My conclusion is that none of the above posts and replies are in compliance with the University's wishes.

My other thought is Lawd have mercy at the ridiculous attention given to this topic in Louisiana (which I just dove right into also LOL). If you folks in Louisiana would concentrate on more important things, maybe you could distinguish and humiliate yourselves like Alabama by nominating someone like Roy Moore for Senate and having a bunch of old white men pass medieval abortion laws.

Tulsa vs. Brigham Young

Surprising that Arkansas couldn't find their bats this weekend. Tulsa gets to see Oklahoma State again.

Piss on old whit men who vote for these laws.

If they cared about life they’d be giving support to the children when they were born. Following Colorado’s lead who reduced teen pregnancy and abortions by giving out free birth control.

Women. Will. Die.

Let’s PLEASE not turn this into a political thread. Take it to the Miscellaneous forum. Whether you realize it or not, we all love someone who’s had an abortion. Let’s be respectful and not mix fun softball discussion with controversial political climate BS.
