    Robe qualifies. Give Lotief's salary to Robe and shut down softball.

    That's it, shut down all the minor women's sports, and dedicate those funds and scholarships to fielding a really really large beach volleyball team.

    ESPN cares about NCAA softball. It absolutely scorches men's baseball in the ratings. And I would venture to say that OU softball (with the ESPN tv money factored in) generated more revenue than OU baseball did. One can assume that the raise that OU gave Patty Gasso (I believe her base is $750,000 that could increase to $1 mill with incentives) reflects the over all value of the softball program to the university.

    Some post with a know it all attitude and demean others for their opinion.
    My wife is not a sports fan but enjoyed attending and following UL softball only because of the Lotiefs family oriented approach. Along with other women I have talked to, she is very skeptical of stories from disgruntled former players etc who have ill will for Loteif and the program.
    If women can see through this charade, why do so many MEN have their panties in a wad over this BS.
    Poking someone in the shoulder? Really?
    Loteif did need some counseling in manners but I can't believe that a great coach was fired like this.
    Your wife and those other women you talked to know this was a charade by disgruntled former athletes? I hope they are ready to testify. "Knowing" by virtue of advanced "charade skills" that the former players lied is pretty powerful. Please have your wife and those other women contact Michael Lotief's legal team.

    Please also let your wife know that I wear a thong... so my panties don't wad. And tell her that I'm not happy that Michael Lotief fell from grace at UL. He is a fantastic results coach. I was very sad to hear what several former athletes reported. If your wife and "the other women" can exonerate him with testimony of their charade knowledge... please have them come forth as witnesses. I fear that some of the athletes that support Michael are not going to make great witnesses. They are going to be forced to come clean on what they experienced and witnessed. And their opinions of "it's just what coaches do" isn't going to cut it. But your wife and the other women... with their charade skills... may be very helpful in the court system. The court is very respectful and appreciative of people with long distance charade cracking skills.

    NO ONE is happy Coach Lotief was fired. All or sad that it had to happen. It's just that some believe there is absolute proof of his inappropriate behavior. Many believe that "poke" you refer to in your post was much more than that. As far as counseling in manners goes, how do you know that was not suggested and rejected by Coach Lotief. Most here work in the business world and understand that type of behavior would have resulted in termination a long time ago. It is a very sad situation and all wish Coach well in his future whatever that might bring.
