Poor little smoochie. Go drown yourself in a Juicebox.

Florida will be fine. 

Now if the Jack Rabbit leaves town, you guys are screwed.

I don't know of many former UF pitchers that have started a coaching career as of yet.  The only one that comes to mind is Jenny Gladding who was an assistant at Florida previously under Walton.  I believe she is now the manager of the French National team...I don't know if they have any shot at an Olympic berth, but don't see her passing up coaching a National Team to return as a pitching coach.   I'm sure Walton will find a talented person.  He has connections within Pro FastPitch and USA Softball.

Is Renfroe ready. Is that an inspiring hire?

I’d be shocked if SVB took it based on things I’ve heard.

You'd wish she was still in the Booth if she became your Pitching Coach. Ye, nice couple years in the Collegiate ranks but, not sure I'd want somebody on Staff who can't discern between a Screwball & Curve & Rise with 10 Camera angles. 

She's fine to listen to but I don't find her exceptionally knowledgeable when discussing pitchers

There is a difference between talking about pitching, offering your opinion and analysis about pitching, and working with pitchers on a daily basis to see if your advice is productive and understanding where to go with them after multiple years of training and being able to continue their development. Scarborough may turn out to be a great coach, but to my knowledge, she hasn’t done this yet. There is also a difference between personal success as a player (and commentator) and being a seasoned teacher with success AS A TEACHER AND A COACH.
I’m not slagging Scarborough. She is definitely one of my favorite commentators and i have enjoyed reading some of her articles on the internet. She may be a great teacher. I just wouldn’t guarantee it based on her commentating. Show me her successful students.

Mentioned this on the SEC predictions thread -- for who knows what reason


Mike Roberts has been pitching coach for two schools that made the Final Four.....

Can anyone else in history say that?

Walton was HC for USSSA Pride in 2010 and 2011.  He did manage Cat Osterman.   An Assistant HC/pitching coach job at Florida is a step up from Texas State if she is interested in leaving her home state.

So ... Osterman recently posted on social media that she was at Randi Rupp’s Pro Game in Florida to surprise her. Maybe completely unrelated to Walton’s visit. When was he there?

Florida makes their pitching coach hire.  Syracuse HC Mike Bosch.

It's hard for me to believe that giving up a head coaching position for an assistant job no matter for who is puzzling! I just don't see how the this and that make it a progressive move. Does anyone know if this has ever happened in this modern era of softball.

Well, he got a pay raise.... I would say that, for starters, that makes sense.

Tough times for NE schools in the ACC - Pitt coach leaves for a lateral in-conference job at Louisville, and Syracuse coach leaves to be an assistant.
