You are right. But in my experience, female coaches, if they are bad, tend to be more cruel. There are plenty of bad male coaches but they can't get away with the cruelty as much. It sounds sexist but ask plenty of women who is hardest on them in the workplace and they'll tell you women vs men.

The final season for Coach Julie Wright started out with a less than bang at the University of Maryland. They lost their game convincingly to Division 2 Shepherd and the Maryland pitchers were less than stellar to be kind. This is a sad state of affairs down there.

I am switching my attention to Maryland Club Softball. They beat Navy a few years ago, a team that would be official anywhere else.


Heard that Kufta caught both games. Apparently was rough all the way around. Too many errors to count! Should be a bumpy ride......again!

Did Golden pitch?  She is good and I would find it interesting that she was less than stellar...

I couldn't make the long trip to Maryland but as I was told, Golden pitched the first game and did not do well. I mean, this was a mediocre D2 team. A big time pitching stud would have dominated or at least not have lost. There are reasons people hop ship and not doing well might be one of hers. She also did it with her pitching coach, who probably got the job because she had a pitcher that Wright needed desperately.  I also heard that Golden got hurt but not sure of the type of injury. I also understand that Maryland beat Mount St. Mary's 7-2 I have not seen them play in a few years but I don't think they'd be Big Ten quality.

off my soapbox now [tongue]


Spoken like someone without all the information!

Not everyone who complains is sitting on a pedestal. Not every parent/player who has spoken up, has blinders on. The object of this board is to share information and share opinions, I get that! But where there is enough smoke, there's a dumpster fire! And that's what's happening at Maryland.

I can only speak for what I know to be fact. And the fact is, if your coaching philosophy is about building up your team, teaching skills to improve their skills and work towards a winning record, have at it! Push them, work them and above all COACH them. But if your philosophy includes segregation, bullying, intimidation, physical breakdown AND you can only muster up 23 wins in two years....perhaps there is something more than girls and parents wanting to be coddled. And as for the ones who spoke up....not sure I would refer to them as weak or overly sensitive, rather the opposite. You see, my mama always taught me it's harder to stand up and do the right thing than it is to look the other direction and say nothing!!

Just sayin.....

I'm not sure about Golden, whether she got hurt or not. H er numbers and record were down in '17. I only saw her pitch a part of an inning against CP. CSF also had and Kessler.

Narrator, let's pretend this is the Maryland thread, what difference does it make? If I were the coach at MD, I'd make sure I'd beat the crap out of teams in the Fall, given the poor/sh*tty record the past two years. To get beat by a team that you shouldn't even play speaks volumes about her and the team that is no longer Watten's or Deifel's. They have been long gone and she did not go out and get a legitimate catcher, gets a mediocre JC transfer student that is ineligible and picks up job hopper pitching coach that has a kid who has seen better days. As a fan of Maryland in the past I am speechless.

If I have a job with a crappy boss, or with crappy coworkers that the boss tolerates, then I walk and get a different job.  Or I do something in the current job to find a different boss.  That's called being responsible for your own happiness and fate.  I don't eat crap that someone wants to dish out.  And I don't teach my kids to view life any differently.

Yeah, actually, you did support that view; spaz said "Players put up with all kinds of crap because the school is paying their bills and they look at it like a job."

Which sentiment you agreed with.

But, hey, seems like we agree, in the end.  Sometimes players have to revolt by taking issues up the food chain, or departing.

Blinded by your rage much

My guess is the MD pitcher was already going backwards before she got there.

The bootcamp stuff really amazes me. Tell me Julie, how many extra wins did that get you? Btw abuse happens way too often in women's sports. A ton of it is psychological.

Lol, an incompetent coach of an irrelevant east coast program will be happy to know you've got her back on the message boards.

I don't care one way on another about Wright I was merely pointing out the ridiculous hate that Terp spews nonstop about MD coaches, not to mention any male coach that has no business in women's sports.
But hey, glad it made you Lol.

Wright ran off the only two true catchers on the team - not to mention a pitcher too!   No matter how you slice it - she is mis-managing the team and just is not a good coach.  These blogs can blame the girls all they want but this is going on the 3rd year of this crappy coaching...There are issues - how many other blogs, aside from AUBURN - beat the dead horse that Wright is the problem at MD.

Golden got hit in the head by a ball........sorry for her as I'm certain it hurt.... honestly...... SMH.

If you think tb coaches and parents will really get info they need from broad array of coaches you are dreaming. If kids need to learn about abusive authority figures that can wait until after graduation. Not one kid on my d1 team had any lessons in sunrise boot camps and abusive coaches and we all turned out great. Plus we won some games.

Not loling or fuming brofessor, I consider any exchange I have with another poster thats confrontational to any degree forgotten every time I log off.  I do find it curious though that someone who registered during the Bush Admin and probably doesn't have a dd playing college ball anymore or a rooting interest in any team would still be posting here apparently primarily for the sake of confrontation with other posters.  Maybe that's an impression more than reality since I don't follow all the threads on this site.  To each their own either way.

As for this thread, maybe all the MD posts could be moved to a new thread called, "D1 Head Coaching Changes that Haven't Happened Yet but Should."  I live in a nearby state and my dd's travel team has played several UMD commits including a pitcher who's 6'+ and to look at you'd think her father was an NBA power forward.  She was so raw though the last time I saw her.  It's too bad she won't get the developmental help she needs if the current regime stays because the physical package is everything a college coach could ask for.
