Graham Hays of ESPN.com, in his weekly notebook about college softball, has this nugget about Texas pitcher Blair Luna:

Speaking of pitching statistics bordering on the absurd - and we've seen this kind of thing before out of a certain tall southpaw who used to pitch in Austin - Blaire Luna is piling up strikeouts for Texas. The Longhorns senior began last week as the nation's leader in strikeouts per seven innings, then went out and struck out 40 in 20 innings in the Judi Garman Classic. There are only five instances of a pitcher averaging 14 strikeouts per seven innings for a season, and three of them were turned in by Cat Osterman, but Luna is hovering around 14 at the moment.
