Here's some food for thought to you fans of softball stats. Which team really led the D1 schools in scoring for the 2018 season? 

Team               G      R      R/G 
Boise State     56    379    6.77
Oklahoma       62    413    6.66

Boise State averaged 6.77 runs per game while Oklahoma averaged 6.66 runs per game.

But Oklahoma played a lot of shortened games.
They had 9 games in which they batted just 4 innings.
They had 7 games in which they batted just 5 innings.
They had 24 games in which they batted just 6 innings.
That's a total of FORTY games in which they batted in less than 7 full innings.

Boise State had a total of TWENTY FIVE games in which they batted in less than 7 full innings.

So when we look at the team's actual number of opportunities to score runs (the number of innings they batted), rather than just the number of games played...  we get a deeper look at which team really was better at scoring runs.

Team                IB*      R       R/7 
Oklahoma      373.2    413     7.74
Boise State    351.2    379     7.54

IB* is Innings Batted (the number of innings the team batted).
R/7 is Runs per 7 innings batted.

So Oklahoma actually scored more runs per opportunity than Boise State.

Lol we averaged more than that, just seemed like a lot of unecessary work to try to say OU scores more than Boise St, not that I disagreed with the assessment!

Especially when you compared to quality of opponents. Donโ€™t take it personal like always ๐Ÿ˜œ



OU has a great offense

They sort of had a one-man-gang offense this year against teams worth their salt.

But, they had two of the top three lefties in the nation to paper that over.

They need some offensive rebounds next year to cover up the Paige losses

I thought they did this by runs scored multiplied by 7 inning and divided by how many innings they played?

I had been thinking you must be ill, Lefty. Your sarcastic/cynical posts have been notably absent. I feel better now that I know you're your old, insulting self.

That's ERA sort of. ERA is Earned runs not total runs.

Shades of Lefty's incessant pimping of the Ducks' coach?

Oklahoma and Boise State have something else in common. Anyone care to guess what that is?

I'm pretty sure Boise State never shut out Arizona State and Florida in the WCWS on the same day; so, of course, that couldn't be it.

<< I thought they did this by runs scored multiplied by 7 inning and divided by how many innings they played? >> (smcouvillion)

No. The official team scoring leader in the NCAA stats is a simple Runs scored divided by games played.

Team               G      R      R/G 
Boise State     56    379    6.77
Oklahoma       62    413    6.66

Boise State is listed as the team leader in scoring runs for the 2018 season at 6.77 runs per game.

You'd make a great replacement for Stephen Colbert or Jimmy Kimmel if either should decide to retire from their late night TV gigs. Your comedy is as funny as theirs.

I'm an Oklahoma fan myself but this thread means nothing since they fell flat on their faces in this years WCWS.

I wouldn't say they fell flat on their faces in the WCWS... since they did win 2 games - and finished in the final four teams.

But it is true that they only managed to score 4 runs in 4 games (for a 1.0 R/G average) at the WCWS... 
so that was FAR from what they had done during the regular season - and what they had done throughout the first five games of the 2018 post season.
Oklahoma had averaged 8 runs a game in their three regional games - and then they averaged 8 runs a game in their super regional games as well. 
They had scored 40 runs in the five post season games before the WCWS... then only scored four more runs the rest of the way (in 4 WCWS games).
So that finish by their offense - was very disappointing. Their #1 problem at the WCWS was that they went 1 for 19 with RISP.

Last time I checked the national championship goes to the team that wins the WCWS, not to the team that wins the scoring title. Stop trying to give your favorite team a moral victory, WTF!

Hey, SobJunkie; keep those wonderful posts coming. You don't even have to "condense" them. I love your posts; hope you never get banned from this site.

I'm not talking about the pitching. Parker was out of this world with her pitching and Alo stepped in a large way with her bat but the context of this thread is Oklahoma's offense and that was what I was talking about. Oklahoma led the nation in scoring but we had injuries throughout the season to key player's(Romero and Knighten) who carried those injuries into the post season. When this team is healthy they can score on anybody. With the loss of the Paige's that offense is really going to be leaned on next year to score a lot of runs. Hopefully next year Knighten can recover better from yet another knee surgery than she did this year otherwise they may need to look at her as strictly a DP to save wear and tear on her.

Romero had an in-season injury? Holy-crap! What her stats could have been otherwise?!
