I don't remember when Hawaii became a foreign country, but if JMU is going there it must be.

Our Whole Schedule is Bus Distance... not one trip at all further than Charleston... this should be one of the best Senior classes for Towson in a long time and they are stuck at home all Spring... i say bring on the Bake sale!

Ladder, this could be a good year for Towson. But their pitching will prevent them from being no better than fourth in the CAA. It's hard to believe that their coach is so narrow minded that their team does not stretch the schedule to get some better exposure for her players. If you think small you'll always be small.

Can anybody offer a report on how JMU looked this past Fall? Any indication who may get innings in a backup role for Good? How the Freshman pitchers looking?

If Vegas made odds on softball JMU would currently be favored in every game on the 2018 schedule.  Of course they will not win every game but with Good strategically deployed their schedule (not as strong as the last few years) would allow for the Dukes to be favored throughout.

So word out of Harrisonburg is Good is going to redshirt due to another needed knee surgery. Certainly hope for a full recovery for her. The CAA just got a whole lot more competitive. Need some freshmen arms to step up now for the Dukes.  Good thing their schedule is so weak this year!!

IF true, look for her to transfer for her final year of eligibility.

Anybody say Auburn the 2019 Pre-Season #1 in SEC.

That is definitely a setup for a transfer.

To anywhere.

Did she love MD, or is that just a convenient narrative?

Depends on who you talk to. But yes, she could pretty much pick her spot don't ya think?

She had to be talked off the ledge when he announced his departure.  She was not on time to graduate so would be surprised if she left.  If she ended up at Auburn they should call in Robert Mueller as it would reek of collusion! 😉

She could finish her studies anywhere. Collusion? Joking right? That would make a great 30-30 on ESPN: College Coach & Star Pitcher collude on season ending knee surgery for transfer purposes.

Yes that was a joke.  She is a home girl and would be shocked if she (ever) left the valley.

She is from just down the road....but an oppt. to play Power 5 for a NC...enticing. 

I'll watch her wherever she plays. One of my favorites. Wish her nothing but the best.

And--again, if true--maybe she would want to broaden her horizons and ditch her blankie for one year, like Craighton and Sanders did

Wow - that is probably the worst post I have ever read here.  "Ditch her blankie"?  Pathetic.

Puhhhhlease.... you guys all yap about how she is a home girl and would never leave 'the valley'

The comment is directed more toward that commentary than anything.

But yeah, getting away from home is jumping out of the comfort zone.... I didn't know that 'blankie' had such virulent undertones to it. LOL

You were taking a shot at all the schools outside the power 5, admit it.  Still pathetic.

P5? No.

There are many, many kids who play close to home for that same sense of comfort in the P5

The only time the fans of the non-P5s deserve criticism is when they get too full of themselves in touting numbers or ripping RPI, ignoring the patsy schedule.

The programs themselves? If they pay kids to play softball, they are great in my book

You are correct schools should schedule more games against the Pac 12...Little JMU was 6-1 vs the Pac 12 last 4 years with 3 true road wins and an NCAA win..  Heck they may have a higher winning percentage against the Pac than they do against the CAA the last 4 years.

And heck they didn't even get a very bad Stanford team.

Well that changes things[frown].   However, without doing my homework I imagine the 'weak' schedule' is still as good or better than anyone else in the conference.

Wish all CAA softball schools thought of/were able to schedule on the same terms.

"So many top 50 RPI games, so many Top 100 RPI games, try to reduce scheduling of games with opponents higher than 175." sort of thing

Might make it a little more interesting.



IF injury is true, wish her nothing but the quickest and most complete recovery.
