Clemson is in trouble, out the gate. Rittman was sold a bag of goods for 1st class. Buford didn't win it this year and was beatable all year. I do agree that the Bennett girl was the best on team, and should have a great career at VT.

No one really knows how much money Rittman had to offer Caymol and Oda to get them to commit.

Oda probably was expensive to walk away from Duke at last minute. Also Rittman has been very successful on the west coast. Please keep in mind daddy ball rules the southeast in travel ball and girls are so protected by fathers who should stick to there full time job.

Whether Caymol was de-committed from TN or de-committed herself, her upside remains high for Rittman. With over 2 full years before she ever throws a college pitch, she's a relatively safe recruit. Oda is good, no doubt about that. But in the big picture she is another dime a dozen MIF with good speed. Rittman could no doubt find any number of kids with her skill set, but bigger & stronger. That said, she's an excellent pickup to build his team around and didn't hurt she's willing to redshirt. 

Pitcher like Caymol probably got a nice scholarship. Oda maybe got more than typicall for her position because of the redshirt "inconvenience" factor. 

Rittman off to a good start.

I've heard any number of reasons why Oda decommitted from Duke and, for what it's worth Clemson had nothing to do with it. Now, unless she new Rittman was being hired a full 3 weeks before anybody else did, ok possible. More than likely her departure stemmed from academic issues or, as you posted, daddy ball got in the way. 

And Southeast daddy ball would make a great reality TV show for sure.

Doesn't Duke have its own version of Daddy Ball going on?

Not anymore Oda left, probably a blessing for Duke.

Just heard a rumor that some players from ULL may end up redshirting this year at Clemson.  Anyone else hearing anything?

You mean enter Clemson Jan 2018? If they go that route, what, they enroll & pay their own way for Spring Semester. Show up Fall 2018, presumably under their Redshirt Deal, sit 2019 Season then ready to play 2020? They could stay @ ULL and accomplish the same thing right? 

Seems they'd lose a year in there somewhere right? I don't see the benefit in transferring early.

Makes more sense to redshirt next year at Clemson with the 2018 class, but that does not help them this year with the dumpster fire at ULL.

Just heard something funny this morning that I didn't know. Oda has been to 3 high schools in a 15 mile radius and only won 1 high school championship at Buford. And Hyatt only made Varsity at Buford her junior year and also only won 1 state championship. And all 3 play for Caymols dad in travel ball. Daddy Ball at Clemson.

What's the name of that travel team?

Not sure what your beef is with Oda, but you’re on a slippery slope friend. The Caymol family has been through a hell that is unimaginable, and slamming them to slam Oda isn’t right. Would you say any of this to their faces? The Oda’s or even the Caymol family? I highly doubt it.

I had my own thoughts on the Oda transfer to Buford (if you’re not from Georgia and looking for something fun to do, google “Buford” and “transfers” for a good time) but it is what it is. Slamming Hyatt for making Buford varsity as a junior, while we’re at it, is equally as silly. Buford gets the best of the best talent and Hyatt not being varsity isn’t as big a knock as you’re portraying. Now will she see the field at Clemson? Maybe, maybe not, but what I'm seeing here is your beef with one (Oda) extending to those around her (Caymol and Hyatt). Step back, breathe a little— Buford’s streak is over and we can all calm down, at least till next year.

Of course, it was my alma mater that sent them packing, so maybe I’m having more fun than the rest. 😏

No problem with either kid, but I don't like seeing people get credit for things they were not part of. Saying they helped Buford to 3 state championships is wrong period. As far as Caymol, good pitcher with ok stuff, has been not at her best this whole season Travel of H/S period. Can't imagine, nor would I want to,what family has been thru. Please read into what was said before u become an expert on softball. As far as Oda no beef there at all, just didn't want credit to be were credit shouldn't.

And congrats on beating Buford this year!!!!! They didn't have a true number 1 pitcher to help them. When your number 1 give up 4 homeruns and all runs scored off of them it's hard to rebound.

I think everyone was still surprised to see Locust Grove hit them (and then Union Grove, Walnut Grove, Wayne...) as hard as they did. 5A didn’t play scared of Buford and the Wolves never fully recovered. A lot of good ball was played in 5A this year.

Why would someone leave a head coaching gig to become an associate head coach?  More money?  Does associate head coach offer more chances for career advancement at a P5 school?

I'm assuming, but Associate Head is a step in between assistant and Head coach. The money would be more going to the P5 school and yes a better chance to be a head at a P5. Again I'm assuming. [smile]

I agree that associate head coach is a step between an assistant and a head coach, but I think he was already the head coach at Furman, which is why I asked the question.
