Oregon softball coach asks for forgiveness from Oklahoma fans

2d

Don't be surprised if Oregon has a bunch of new fans as the Women's College World Series gets underway in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, on Thursday.

Why? The response of Ducks softball coach Mike White when asked to make a case for local fans to jump on the bandwagon.

According to Jason Kersey of The Oklahoman, White seized on the opportunity by apologizing to OU fans for the Sooners' football team's loss in September 2006 when OU recovered an onside kick but was not rewarded the ball after a missed call by the officials.

"I just hope that Oklahoma forgives us for that football game," White said. "I was at that game, and that was a bad call."
