They didn't get on base much, did they? I expected lots of steals of second.

We got 6 and 7 hits in the two games. Just don’t remember any steal attempts.

It was said in her recruitment she only wanted to go to school with beaches close by....... if this is true then more power to her she still got her national championship.

Beaches near Tallahassee? I guess lots closer than Norman, but isn't north Fla swamp/Spanish moss country?

Norman has no beaches, but I'm told there's several sons of beaches here and they all hang out on this board.

Why did Oregon not steal? They stole at will during the regular season series. Helm is not a catcher, but did a very decent job at filling in when Flores went down. And regardless of what Mendoza thinks, she doesn’t have a strong arm.

So...what position should Helm play? Next year with MoFlo back, dont think it's going to be her position.

I'll admit it: I'm a poor excuse for an Okie. We did look it up, and it is a very fitting expression -- one I intend to incorporate in my posts in the future!

Good job, friend. And I'm proud that in some small way I've contributed to the hick-ification of a fellow Sooner fan.

Her arm may be relatively strong... 
but she sure was not very accurate. 
Some of those throws - were SO far from second base.

In case anyone reading this thread doesn't know....


THAT'S HOW THE COW ATE THE CABBAGE - "An expression to indicate the speaker is laying it on the line, telling it like it is, getting down to brass tacks - with the connotation of telling someone what he or she needs to know but probably doesn't want to hear. According to Little Rock attorney Alston Jennings, who submitted this southernism to Richard Allen's February 2, 1991, 'Our Town' column in the Arkansas Gazette, the expression has its roots in a story about an elephant that escaped from the zoo and wandered into a woman's cabbage patch. The woman observed the elephant pulling up her cabbages with its trunk and eating them. She called the police to report that there was a cow in her cabbage patch pulling up cabbages with its tail. When the surprised police officer inquired as to what the cow was doing with the cabbages, the woman replied, 'You wouldn't believe me if I told you!'" From "Encyclopedia of Word and Phrase Origins" by Robert Hendrickson (Fact on File, New York, 1997)

Actually, Henry, the correct rendering of that old saying, as it's been used a century or longer by residents of the southern and southwestern U.S., is: "That's how the cow eats the cabbage."

I realize the above is only slightly different from the version of that old saw that you get via an Internet search. But attention to detail is important to anyone who takes pride in our forefathers' redneck slang and frowns on its misuse by those who must depend on Google for answers.
