According to the OSU press release, Friday and Saturday's games are only available on OU's subscription website.
Sunday's game is on FOX OK.
I'll be at both games so it doesn't bother me, but still seems weird, like they should all three be on TV.

This is a bush league move by UO in my opinion. It's nothing more than a power play and a cash grab, thinking people will pay for the subscription. If you really wanted to promote college baseball in this state, all three games would be televised. We as fans certainly deserve better. Makes me want to sweep their sorry asses even more!

Maybe ou is getting back at us for them having to buy a season ticket in football to see a game in Stillwater.
If that's the case, then....they have to pay more for a game they want than we do.

Looks like it costs $10 per month to subscribe. I assume you can cancel it after a couple of days. I hate giving money to Ou but I might do it. If I do, I'm sharing my log in credentials with Cowboyup58 just so I feel like we're getting one over on them.

It's more dominant than that. We've won the Big XII series with them 10 of the last 13 years. For the sport of baseball, that's elite level domination. And, two of those years (2009 & 2010) we were working with brutal scholarship reductions because someone in that department was a moron....

Oh, and another thing. In the last 13 years, we've swept them in the Big XII series 4 times, OU hasn't swept us at all in that same stretch of time. Also, in the last 13 years, we've faced off in the Big XII Tournament 3 times, beating them all 3 times. Also, it was really fun to literally end their season back-to-back years in 2014 & 2015 by beating them out of the conference tournament, with no hopes of getting an at large bid in the NCAA Tournament.

So off topic, I noticed Elliott didn't win Big XII pitcher of the week. Was he not eligible because we were playing a non-conference series or did they screw him again?

The great question is will Blevins lead off with his normal goon report or will he only talk about goon softball. He might even say "former national champion OU baseball in 1990 whatever" is playing against a competitive OSU team

Oklahoma State opens up the series with back to back to back homers from Funk, Simpson, & Navigato. :thumbup:

No wonder OU didn't want anyone to see this. ;)
