BC softball at wits end.
6 players injured now (All during practices, not games)
Torn ACLs, shoulders, feet, knees, hands etc...
2 on mental leave. 2 flat out quit.
2 sophs left from recruiting class of 5.
Last year multiple injuries including both ace pitchers (rib cage and foot).
9-16 record. No ACC wins. Obrest under .500 lifetime with no success in ACC tourney.
First year 0-3 in ACC Duke (now 3-3 ACC) program just swept BC
10 active players and 2 pitchers this weekend vs. UVA.

Time bomb ticking. Tick..tick...tick....

Crazy.  And yet they still beat Ole Miss 8-2. 

Hope things turn around for them.

I wonder how many of the losses had to do with injuries.

31-22 last year, and lots of close losses against good teams with a team you claim is beat up.......sounds like grandpa has an unhappy granddaughter.

I wouldn't call it a solid program, particularly given the relative weakness of the ACC, but if you throw out the first two years as transition years it would be fair to call it improved.  I have no idea of the history or expectations for BC softball but I know a couple of commits for next year and I'd like to see them do well in a stable coaching environment.


If ProudGrandpa's dgd is playing for BC's next opponent UVa, props to her for getting into such a great school and into the starting softball lineup but as far as softball programs go they've got a ton of work to do in-house before setting the time bomb ticker off on other programs.

I have no idea what, if anything, is going on with BC softball, but I did hear that they only dressed 11 players for the Duke series.  Maybe they will be on watchespn this weekend.

BC 8, UVA 0.  Run rule final.  No hitter.  Possible perfect game, if 5 inning games count.

11 players that played higher than rec ball will get you in the top half of the ACC

No first-hand knowledge of BC softball but given all the circumstances there I'd say that a little better than .500 is a reasonable outcome. Hopefully, the current roster situation is a bad luck scenario and not the result of poor coaching or conditioning practices.

Wouldn't that be everyone who plays college softball and therefore include the entire ACC?

Not looking for excuses but BC has yet to practice or play on a home field. New stadium still under construction. And with only 1 paid assistant coach Also 8 of the 15 loses by 1 run I know still a L. Program still battling and I like it.

Looks like ProudGrandpa just wanted to rip the program his grandbaby plays for. He deleted himself from this website after he trashed the program. Maybe his grandbaby (JC) just isn't  that good.

BC has 6 straight wins since the original post. Methinks we will never hear from ProudGrandpa again.

If they lose the series finale against Cuse tomorrow than it's on you for jinxing them with this post.  I'm sure the BC coaching staff would love to hear from ProudGrandpa again, they need more bulletin board material!

Good for BC though for making a run with a depleted roster.  Hope the remaining players stay healthy.

This is good stuff, I typically don’t get involved in drama but looks like Proudgrandpa is a little too proud and Eaglesfan knows who his grand daughter is (JC). Nothing like being called out

A solid school like BC in a great town should have no excuse for poor recruiting.  The bench should be pretty deep.  I agree, this post is all about some inside story but overall I agree this program has been pretty sleepy in terms of recruiting in the big select programs.

This link is about ProudGrandpa trying to blow up his interest....and then disappearing after being called out.
And then possibly hearting his intended interest??
