I wish nothing but the best for their families, and everyone else involved in Oklahoma State who are affected by this tragedy.

God Bless the families, players and Oklahoma State Community.

God bless them.

Did they have a plane crash with the men’s team about 10 years ago?

On Jan. 27, 2001, a plane that took off near Boulder, Colo., after a men's game went down east of Denver, killing two players, four team officials, a play-by-play announcer, a radio engineer and two pilots.

An NTSB report cited a power loss aboard the plane and said the pilot suffered disorientation while flying the plane manually with still-available instruments.

This is so sad, I always have a fear that this will happen to teams. My condolences to everyone involved.

Unbelievable. I thought this was a bad joke when I first heard it. Just horrible news, I feel terrible for everyone involved and can’t believe how cruel fate can be sometimes.
