For the who like the visual bracket.

From what I've seen, she's looks like she might be battling a lower body injury. If I'm right I'm assuming Coach Murphy is *withholding" that Tidebit. The team will have to ride Fouts and that shouldn't come as a surprise.

With the 3 different style pitchers i have seen.....
Can use them all.... when Fouts tires she really starts missing strike zone....bad....
But you r right.....probably use her all the way through.....
But getting to CSWS is hugh ..... winning is great but only one of 8 do so....
Like CF Final four....or CB final four....
Great honor being part of

@50+yeartidefan, Murph will like have to use what he's got on hand. I just don't see Tana being able to handle six games in a row on six consecutive days. Bama simply doesn't have the pitching this season.

To put that in a little different perspective, you can look at UCLA and OU (as two examples) and find pitchers that were in the same class as Tana, they were ranked higher than Tana, and both are mostly seen on Sunday's. Better pitching staffs using better talent in their reserve roles.

Bama has the defense to keep the Tide in the game if they're playing error free. The offense has the capability to keep up with a lot of the teams in the WCWS.

If they can make a run ... the easiest path looks like it's through the losers bracket.

The Massey Ratings on opponents Bama may face in the WCWS. Against OU, it's a 26% win probability.


UCLA 35%
Washington 40%
Oklahoma State 59%
Florida 54%
Arizona 39%
Minnesota 51%

@planomateo again, there's your five seed.
