For those interested in Megan Good's status, she's back pitching for JMU and there doesn't appear to be any lingering issues with her knee injury last year.  Closed against UVa and pitched 7 complete innings against Longwood last weekend.  Not a ton of k's but had a no-hitter going against Longwood until the top of the 7th.  Longwood won in ITB 3-0.

How did fall ball go for everyone? For anyone interested my Kid just got back from Winning the German Cup over Mannheim... she led the German Bundesliga in almost every category! Very successful German season, the sad news is I believe she is hanging up her cleats for good!

Hofstra in total rebuilding year. new coach and lost 4 players to transfer. We also graduated 7 seniors. We have the youngest team in the CAA.2 seniors 2 juniors 4 sophs and 11 freshmen. Even with that I think we have the second toughest OOC schedule in the CAA. A good year for us is making the CAA tournament.

Steelman, you guys got supposedly a top flight head coach and an historically strong recruiting program. Don't make excuses before the season. Sure, you're not going to beat JMU, but the rest of the crowd is there for the taking.

Where are all the schedules to compare? I don't see anything up on JMU, CofC, Delaware, Elon, Towson and UNCW.

Drexel's is up but it isn't too surprising to see them playing zero P5 schools. I do expect them to be more competitive this year thought.

Hofstra schedule has one tough weekend at the beginning where they might get swept but otherwise they should favorites in the rest of their OOC games.

trudat no excuses but realistic expectations. Lose your pitching staff and 7 senior starters and whats left. Its a total rebuild. We are a mid major not a florida or UCLA. I would be thrilled with a second place finish. Both pitchers are freshmen and we all know you win with pitching. Towson found out quickly once they played some real teams in the CAA. My question is will Towson play teams in the top 150 or pad their OOC with cupcakes of RPIs of 250 or so.

Lurker we are not the same team that ended the season with a #18 RPI. It is an inexperienced team. Actually I expect them to struggle then improve as the season progresses. Those are realistic expectations.

Steel,

Any word on how the early signing period went?

I am entering this season with the intention of giving Miller a pass because of how much we lost and how little time he had to restock.

So, while wins and losses are not going to phase me much; the one thing I did want to see is a solid recruiting class as a means of demonstrating that he still connects with the current generation.

Steelman, Towson will not be a factor in the CAA. They lost too much. They have a transfer pitcher in from East Carolina but after that I'm not sure. They lost 3 really good hitters and they will be difficult to replace.

Opening weekend tournament I've seen JMU has Oregon, Cal, Kentucky, Tennessee. Just by looking at other team's schedules I've seen them on Arizona, Arizona St, Michigan.

I think what you should be looking for if you are a Hofstra fan is how they play the games even if/when they are losing. Under Edwards and Anderson you knew that they were going to do all of the fundamentals right and not beat themselves. This is why they always had a fighting chance against JMU the past few years. I think you are going to see that change with the new coach where they're going to lose games because of a lack of execution.

I still think their O/U on wins should be at about 30, which is still a good season. If you guys win less than that you should be cutting bait and finding a real coach before the program goes real bad in the other direction.

Win or lose, I think Miller's tenure in Hempstead has an infinite shelf life.

Even when they hired him, my impression was that he was a stop gap until the administration is ready to hand the keys to Meyer.  

That having been said, whether it is one, two, three, etc years, you can sure do a lot of damage in a short period of time.

Lurker I agree just don't beat yourself. Spoke with coach Miller and he seems to be a standup guy. Hofstra will be work in progress. with 11 freshmen on the roster we will see growing pains but as we all know the best thing about freshmen is they turn into juniors and seniors. I think 30 wins would be a good season . While I know Towson lost a few players no one in the CAA lost what Hofstra has.

So I see Anderson signed what was Hofstra's 2020 future. I knew about Warrick , didn't know she took Cook and Schumacher as well.  Was hoping Hofstra could keep Schumacher.

Be interesting to see how fast Anderson turns Mizzou into a glorified Mid-Major program. 

Not sure that's good for the SEC.

3 of the 4 recently announced signees appear to be Anderson recruits. https://gohofstra.com/news/2018/11/21/sb-hofstra-softball-announces-four-to-nli-s.aspx

Plus I think 1 or 2 of her 2020s who was committed to Hofstra now switch to Mizzu....( It’s looking like that )

Consider this analogy. Seems easier for a Mid Major Coach/Anderson to get a promotion to a Major P5 Program/Mizzou...than it would be for a  Mid Major recruit to make the same transition. 

It's great for the kid who all of a sudden goes from Hofstra to Mizzou. The reality is, Anderson is setting these kids up for almost immediate failure. 

If she continues to recruit like that, there will be a whole bunch of kids jumping up & down crapping nickels 'cause they're playing in the SEC while Anderson is out of a job. 

Time will tell.

Agreed. That's what happened with Larabee at Arkansas. He brought kids he had committed to play at Wright State to the SEC and got himself in trouble with sub-par talent

Getting back to the CAA. Hofstra is lucky they are in the CAA. They have a chance to recover over the next couple seasons what they lost ...only, and I say only if they have a couple of good seasons (.500 or better).
Edwards built the program up from the ground into a very respectable and competitive program.  He was a home body, loving where he lived and coached. Anderson has always been looking for greener pastures.
Do you think that Missouri was the only school she applied to over the last 10yrs or so? The old AD was leaving, the softball player transfer , retention rate was horrible.  It was only a matter of time.
A coach who has been with a program for 19 yrs should at least leave a program, the same if not better when she/he leaves it.
Without a decent record over the next couple years Hofstra recruiting may suffer for yrs to come.  I see Hofstra sitting in the 4-5 spot in the conference for the next couple years.

Well there are already rumblings of the Mizzou current state of affairs and how they practice up to 10 hours a day with very little if any time to eat, A total disregard for any NCAA Rules. Doesn’t appear to be getting off on the right foot. Expect more transfers. And as far as bringing along Hofstra recruits, they are mid major players at best and are in for a rude awakening. Mizzou fans had better brace themselves. It’s gonna get ugly!

And if this is how she ran her Hofstra teams, it’s no wonder why they had so many transfers over the years.

The Peter Principle may be in play here. Beating up on the kids at Hofstra works in the CAA. The SEC caliber kids don't want that. We'll see if she has exceeded her level of competence.
