Excited to see the future on tv now and see what these kids brings to our teams. Looking forward to seeing Florida’s incoming freshman.

It would have been great if they had at least had game changer for the semi and final games.

Good to see Impact bring Title to the East Coast. Big time win for sure over a big time Program.

Everybody understands the upside of all these kids. That's not debatable. Couple observations considering the venue:

Impact kids can put the ball in play. Not sure how many Batbuster pitchers they went thru but they threw batting practice. Batbusters looked to be more athletic but got exposed trying to make too many defensive plays. 

Impact pitcher did an adequate job at best with game mgt. Her Rise wasn't effective much at all until the Top 7 when she got a Pinch Hitter swinging. Her Change was spotty. I presume she doesn't throw a Curve...? Heavy dose of Screwballs and she got squeezed by the Plate Ump...thought more than a few were Strikes. It's a long week I know. Kid looked un-engaged at times & almost lazy. Body language said she was tired...which she probably was. She also could have gotten some routine defensive help making her job a bit easier.

Also, Umps ignored the blatant leaping on most every pitch.  

If she ends up at Auburn it will be interesting to see how she responds to Coach Dean.

She most certainly wasn't the only leaper. I saw PLENTY of it in the all-American game; that and some god-awful deliveries that hurt!

Hightower... A hi-nope for me.

After watching Lynch pitch some during the week , I think she was definitely battling some fatigue . I thought it was a pretty gutty performance on her part . The Impact was fortunate to have a blowout game in the semi-final and didn't have to use Lynch at all . I think she definitely gave them the best chance vs the Batbusters .

Ye, the Batbuster pitchers seemed very 'busy' in the circle. Some of their motions will get tweaked once they get to school I'd think.

It's known as the "Barnhill Effect", If she gets by with it at the highest level, why should coaches try to correct it with their pitchers?

Well, Eads did call her the "next Kelly Barnhill"... Do you think? Did he know she was a leader back then?

Oh you clever fox...

You obviously have the right to express your opinions, no matter how ill informed they may be, however.................................

You have no idea what this warrior was fighting through. This board's fascination with and ability to exaggerate the effects of minor pitching transgressions is truly amazing. She held the nation's second best offensive unit(we were the best) to 4 runs in 7 innings. There were 4 umpires and she was called on a couple of occasions, so they were definitely paying attention. I will not sit idly by while some know nothing fan disparages the exceptional abilities of a player like this.

Very disappointing to see the team with the illegal pitcher win the championship. But hey, what's new?

Pitching from 39 feet instead of 43 is a minor transgression???

There are no 'couple of occasions'

If you are replanting on pitch 1, you are replanting on pitch 100, and every pitch in between. Umps just don't want to deal with all the screaming from a travel coach and all his/her appendant brainless steroid-raging minions by kicking the kid out of the game.

That said, I have not seen the flashpoint player of THIS PGF discussion.... I just know of the pathetic agendist commentary on the matter on other threads, and that is what my response is to

Denial not a great coaching methodology. Kinda reminds me when my kid use to put her hands over her eyes and say 'you can't see me'.

Gross exaggeration. How else could you justify 4, D1 umpires refusing to call what you apparently think is a major transgression. I'll put my faith in them, not some internet know it all that depends on volume, rather than knowledge to make a point. Nobody was throwing from 39 feet. If you honestly think that.......you are an idiot.

hmmmmm. Denial. When they land, that is where they are. Try hitting off it yourself under pressure in a game and get back to me, coach. I remember 40 feet...not so fondly.

Umps just don't want to deal with all the screaming from a travel coach and all his/her appendant brainless steroid-raging minions by kicking the kid out of the game. We don't yell at umpires. We discuss differences and how key elements are going to be called, hopefully, before the game. If something comes up during the game, we follow up to see how we can approach it in the future. The yellers get the coverage, but most top level coaches know how to handle umpires. 

That said, I have not seen the flashpoint player of THIS PGF discussion.... I just know of the pathetic agendist commentary on the matter on other threads, and that is what my response is to
Then go to the ESPN coverage so you won't further display your ignorance. Then we can talk.



If you're replanting on pitch one, one of the four top qualified umpires will call it. If it happens on pitch thirty four, one of the four top qualified umpires will call it. We had four, D1(SEC, Pac12, Big 12, etc.) blues calling this game. Find another topic to drone on about, you've lost any credibility on this one. You might be able to make a case about the leverage exercised by an elite D1 college coach, but travel coaches have zero recourse. She was legal, given the condition of the pichers plate area, so STFU.

They rarely call barnhill, so once again your excuse for cheating is shot to hell.

Working the umps before the game to look past pitching rules - nice.

It doesn't happen with our pitcher. Leaping and replanting are two distinctly different infractions. While most replants usually originate from a leap, a perfectly normal release can occur from a leap. The two are not necessarily conjoined. In order for a replant to occur, there must be a second point of impetus and push off, not a continuation of normal forward momentum.

It is typical of your childish, black and white view of events. Cheating will be called at the top levels of the sport. It has been proved, on numerous occasions, that the views expressed by the most vocal members of this board are rubbish. You are purely looking to argue. Get back in your corner.

Scott, I realize that you are typically very un-self-aware. Your rantings on the Misc. Forum boards speak for themselves. With that said, I'm going to give you some friendly advice.  You shouldn't be engaging in these types of threads when people know who you are and what organization you represent.  You never 'win' the 'argument', which is something you still haven't figured out.  You end up just feeding into the nonsense and perpetuating the discussion that you are trying to stifle.
Why do you think no one else from the Georgia Impact is on here posting? You think you are their 'defender'? lol. Do them a favor and shut it down Scott. They don't want angry scott posting on their behalf.  Sheesh, they are still trying to smooth over the cheating scandal from playing overage players, and you are on here doing your angry scott schtick. Wake up son.

These same umpires rarely call several college pitchers that clearly get air on every pitch.

I’m sorry if your argument doesn’t hold up.

If at some point in my life I need advice from you.................I'll just go ahead and shoot myself in the head. I'm responding to a foolish criticism of one of my players. Attack one of mine and expect retribution.
