And that all happened within the span of a week.
It wasn't an immediate success, as the Sooners dropped last weekend's series opener at Texas Tech.
Enter Golloway the motivator.
“When we lost Friday, I cannot put into words what it felt like being the University of Oklahoma, being down four games in the Big 12 and not having a win,” Golloway said. “We had a gorilla on our shoulders.
“We had to fix some things. We had to make some changes. We had to really just kind of jump-start our whole selves again.”
There was an hourlong senior meeting. Golloway and his staff met for two hours. And shortstop Caleb Bushyhead led a player-only meeting.
The Sooners spun out of their funk with a win Saturday, claimed the series Sunday and carry a three-game winning streak into this weekend's home series with Kansas State.
Yet a start.
“Baseball is a better coach than I'll ever pretend to be,” said Golloway. “The game teaches us more than anything. You hear the term all the time, you manage with your gut, you make decisions with your gut.
“We're much different than we were early in the year. It's fun to go to the yard.”
