Thanks for that info


I know a former conference commissioner who explained to me the fallacy of the NCAA committee system -- whenever they start a new committee, they get well-qualified representation and the committee usually does a good job.

Then they start rotating people off and new people on, and nearly every turn you go further down the totem pole and after several years all the really qualified people for whatever committee have served their terms and now it's just people doing it because their conference or school or whatever now has a turn and they're it, or someone has lobbied to get on it because they think it will look good on their resume.

So over time, these committees get worse and worse for the jobs they are tasked to do.

I thought the approach at the plate last night was much better than the previous games. Hitters were looking to attack the ball more instead of being passive and reacting. It's hard to find anything wrong when you have 7 hits in 3 innings.

Glad Elissa had two good hits batting in the leadoff spot, that's a huge asset to have on base. As much gloom-and-doom as it's been discussing the offense, they showed some good signs of life Monday. Even if they start scoring 3-5 runs a game instead of 1-2, that would make a huge difference with this pitching.

Hey Ya'll.

I'm a Husky fan (in Birmingham) coming to the game on Saturday. I just realized it's A-Day. I was expecting a quiet Saturday on campus, but now...??

I'm not too familiar with the campus but I see that there are some parking lots near Rhoads. Would you guys expect them to be cleared out by the 4:30 first pitch (the football scrimmage is at 2pm)? Or might they even reserve some parking for the softball game?

I am mainly asking because I'm going with my old man (he's 76 ornery and irascible) and while he's not disabled, he can't do the long walks that he used to.

Any advice would help. Thanks in advance and hoping for a great series.

hey, Ale! my best advice to you would be this: drop him off at the upper lot on campus drive. then you drive down to the lower lot (there are 2 right there) or across the road from the stadium at the soccer/rec center lot.

the upper lot is for parking for those with handicapped access or the booster club members. just sweet talk the person working and say you are just dropping him off, then parking in a different lot.

i will be there Friday, sadly not Saturday (wedding). i hope you have a great experience and if it all is not up to snuff, please let me know.

edit: it was scheduled then TO MAXIMIZE the a-day crowd and get spill over from that game! i do not think lots will be cleared (if they are full) but would suggest arriving around 3pm. fball traffic would be lessened and could give you guys ample time to get situated.

Thanks for the advice. UW does this too with a number of sporting events the day of the spring game.

Looking forward to the event.

And this would be why I say there's not regional hosting for Bama this year. I feel like if they do it's just gifting it to us at this point. Nothing I have seen this year warrants a regional seeding other than taking 2 of 3 from an injured LSU.

I'm at a loss to understand why our hitting it so anemic. We're getting runners on base but we just can't get the critical hit to score any runs. Our pitchers either get a strike out or give up a homerun. This is about the third or fourth game that Hemphill has absolutely scorched a ball but it is been right at somebody. We just can't catch a break this year. I haven't given up but it looks dim for us advancing out of a regional.

Fortunately, the Committee doesn't select the 16 teams based on emotion/frustration.  The only way your comment is valid is if there are 16 more deserving teams. I will hang up and listen for the 16.

Auburn
UCLA
ULL
Minnesota
Utah
Texas A&M
Michigan
Kentucky


Good enough for ya? I mean Kentucky did take the series from a Mizzou at Mizzou like we couldn't do. (And we are 1-6 against those teams and thankfully don't play 3 of those SEC teams).

If ya don't like them then switch them out with JMU. JMU 1-1 vs Top 25 RPI. Bama 7-6. JMU 7-2 vs Top 50 and Bama 12-11.

But it'd be fun to have the selections committee seed Bama 16th vs UF and have UF tie up the series record during supers (if we can beat JMU in regionals - I mean if we let Alyssa Denham, who has a 2 ERA and a crappy schedule, hold us down, then lord only knows what Goods .47 ERA will do to us).

Also your prediction was 9-3, we will make that 8-3 with the lost UT game. We've been 1-2 since that prediction. So do you think we still find 7 games to win with Samford, Ole Miss and AU to play?

What's going on with Alabama? They are 6-7 in their last 13 games? Are there injuries?

Thanks.

The only injury that has caused a player to miss multiple starts at this point is Demi turner. Technically AO has had an injury that's limited her somewhat.
