    We were only 1 win away from a Super Regional without them. With all three of them, especially important to have had the pitching and power hitting, it is highly likely we would have had more wins, a conference championship, a better ranking, possibly hosted a regional, and perhaps even a Super Regional, not to mention all American status. WCWS a distinct possibility. But, certainly, no guarantees of any of that. What do you mean "This story is not over yet"?

    The purpose in her going to Oregon was not just to go to the World Series, but to connect her with Mike White who supposedly can help get her on the national team in preparation for the Olympics.

    "This story" is about DJ Sanders (Burnt Roux: Sanders Departs). I highlighted the sentence in your quote to which my comment applied. My above quote from another thread is the reference about why this story is not over.

    DJ was drafted #21 in the NPF draft by the Chicago Bandits. Whether she plays with them or not, her next efforts will be to prepare for the 2020 Olympic team and Mike White is supposed to help get her there. Here's where the Duck vs. Cajun identity comes into play: if she gets into a position where any publicity comes her way, how much credit will she give to the Louisiana Ragin' Cajuns or Mike Lotief for getting her into that position to where she may be considered for the opportunity? We know (or at least are pretty sure) the media will give little to no reference to the Cajuns, but what will she do? I'm sure most people here are expecting her to speak very little about the Cajuns/Lotief, that would keep her in the good graces of White, who she is counting on to smooth the path for her. This is why I believe the story is not over.

    Not surprised in the least, considering how easily FSU beat us earlier in the year.
