Considering she will be a 5th year senior next season, I am not sure if loyalty to her teammates will be a huge factor unless she was close with players from the younger recruiting classes.

What would be more appropriate is a Caricature of Megan Good with Coach Walton & Coach Gasso on each shoulder, with Coach Dean standing on her head all with big red Horns. 

Potential National Championship or CAA Title. 


You do realize that JMU is likely to make the tournament without Good this year.  Their #1 and #2 pitcher's have an era of 1.88 and .91.. So not sure how your Pickett reference makes any sense.

Yes JMU schedule is down this year but those are still really nice numbers.

Auburn is hitting .204 in Conf, as Tru dat used to love to say about Dean's team in Harrisonburg.  Take Auburn's 2 pitchers away and they are just like every other team in the CAA.

JMU has beat Auburn 2 out of the last 3 times they have played them.  Assuming Good does return and can be as good as she was in the past JMU will be better than Auburn next year, likely much better as JMU only loses 1 key player.  Unless Auburn has some really good players that can come in and help right away they are going to be real hurt by the graduation of Carslon.

Good's parents are still traveling with the team this year to every game including Hawaii.  If I had to bet as of today it would be that Good will play at JMU next season.  I wouldn't be shocked bc of her past with Dean if she was able to graduate from JMU then play next season at Auburn.  I would be shocked if she played at any other school than those 2 but a lot can happen over the next 3 to 4 months.

I didn’t think that the SEC took senior transfers, do they?

They take them in other sports as long as they have graduated.

I am pretty sure they take them in football, I would think they would in other sports too...

My sources have told me that SEC wont allow a player in with less than 2 yrs of eligibility left, could be wrong but that's what she said.  And she is a coach in the SEC.

I found this from an article last year discussing an SEC football transfer:

"The SEC’s university presidents voted Friday morning to change the league’s graduate transfer rule, putting it slightly more in line with the rest of the NCAA. SEC schools are now prohibited from taking a graduate transfer for one year — reduced from three — if that program’s previous graduate transfer failed to make adequate academic progress.

The previous SEC rule was first added in 2010 after Ole Miss accepted quarterback Jeremiah Masoli as a graduate transfer and he left the school after one semester. Initially, the rule required a five-year ban on graduate transfers in such cases. That was reduced to three in 2014.

No other NCAA Division I football conference has any similar restrictions on incoming graduate transfers, something athletic directors cited throughout this week as a reason to change the rule."

I know Florida specifically cannot take one year transfers. I don’t know about the rest of the SEC.

Got about 4 different answers in the above posts so not sure what the ACTUAL Rule is. Still it sounds like each school pretty much does their own thing in regards to Graduate Transfers. 

IF Good wanted to go to Auburn, pretty sure Dean would find a way..within the framework of the SEC transfer rules of course.

I know this rule has been posted before, but it appears the SEC, and Florida, do indeed accept graduate transfers.

SEC changes graduate transfer rule opens door for Malik Zaire to Florida

With a current RPI of 29 sure, I can see them in the field.

I was referencing the JMU 2019 Season with Megan Good and her having to throw a truckload of innings next year. Similar to what Pickett is doing this year at UNC.

My sarcasm was because I think it's a bit naive to think she would return to JMU when, she could go to any top program and have a legit shot at a NC. If she does return, that is awesome for JMU and certainly says much to her loyalty & desire to finish out her career where it started. 

Where she will end up is one of the bigger stories for next few months. Looking forward to watching it develop.

I mean I know I don’t have a firm grasp on it but aren’t graduate transfers outside the conference always accepted? I thought it was graduate transfers within the conference that were the issue (re:Maurice Smith from Bama to UGA)?? Bama has taken Jake Coker and Gehrig Dieter as grad transfers (granted Coker had two years).

I am pretty sure football players who transfer between schools in the SEC must sit a year regardless of their status.

I think that was lifted with the Mo Smith transfer.

Good would not have to throw at all a truckload of innings next year. Her along with Odicci Alexander, Payton Buresch, and an incoming freshman Katie Kudlacik, they will split innings, yes good will get a lot, but not throw triple the innings of everyone else combined. Pickett is overworked, I don't think she can keep going like this IMO.

We agree on Pickett.

So I guess you're the new Pitching Coach @ JMU? Cause if you are and you are really going to throw a Freshman who, no doubt you've probably never seen, and will take ANY innings from Buresch, Alexander & Good...I wouldn't be signing a rental agreement longer than the Softball Season. You'd make her parents really happy though, guess that's something. 

Does Coach Laporte know about this yet?

I'm just saying that you all think Good is going to turn into pickett senior season. They are going to have I think 6 pitchers, 3 of whom have sub 2 era's. Alexander and Buresch have over 100 innings each and both have sub 2 era's, so why would they overwork Good when they have 2 other pitchers with good era's?

Let's start by assuming Good will return to JMU. Then you have to look at what kind of pre-season schedule JMU will play.  And they have to win the CAA, especially if they want to Host. A very good National Ranking won't hurt either but Good alone won't buy them that much goodwill. They have to play a competitive schedule. 

As far as that crowed bullpen you say they will have..rest assure if Good is healthy, 3 pitchers MAX will get any real innings. Whatever the ERAs are now is irrelevant to next year. Just knowing what we know now, Alexander & Buresch might possibly split the other half of the innings Good doesn't throw. They have to win ball games and Good gives them a chance to beat any team while currently, they can't compete with the top programs. They lost to Long Beach St when they weren't ranked and the only win against a ranked team was California. 

Megan Good allows them to be in every game...but she can't put runs on the board for JMU from the circle. A 2019 schedule with Good may look very different than one without her on he Roster.
