Alright everyone, how would you rank the SEC teams this year? Any surprises?

I'll take a crack at it:

1. Florida
2. Tennessee
3. Texas A&M
4. LSU
5. Alabama
6. Auburn
7. Georgia
8. Ole Miss
9. Kentucky
10. South Carolina
11. Arkansas
12. Mississippi State
13. Missouri

Very rough draft, but my opinion. Thoughts?

i don't see lsu top 8 just yet, yes they got th e pitching but lost a ton of offense. How will the offense fair when they face osorio or barnhill or moss? What will happen if pitchers have an off day?
Same with Florida last year a lot of unproven players, Roberts, Hoover, Sophia, we saw what happens when the top 4 struggles to get hits.
I think Alabama has a lot to prove and will prove it this year, I feel the osorio will have her best year and the offense will back her up. With Georgia new pitcher coming in I think they crack the top 5 at some point
Other than that I have to wait and see

Hoover & Walljasper will absolutely keep them well within top 8 in the SEC. I think Mathis will make a big difference for Georgia, but hard to rank pre season without seeing her.

That's her name I was thinking off the top of my head and could not remember the incoming pitcher of Georgia
And for some reason I think waljasper graduated in 2017. Epic brain fart

No problem. I think Georgia has another Fr pitcher in Napoli. Don't know much about her. South Carolina also has two Fr pitchers in Kelsey Oh and Victoria Galvan. Oh was highly recruited. Hope she can make an impact.

I can see Arkansas at 9. I'm a little unsure of Kentucky, and I'm hoping SC an have a good season with new freshman pitchers. That's ultimately what it will come down to for us. Idk if I would put Alabama that high. What does Osorio have behind her, and do they have an offense?

I think SC will have a good season but I 'think the freshman pitchers will have time to ease into the season. Saw them play yesterday and Dixie and Drotar looked good and Hayley looked more comfortable in the circle. I think our offense will be improved too.

Did either Freshman Oh or Galvan get any innings? How have they looked this Fall?

I will be there for next weekends games. I couldn't make it yesterday. I live about 1.5 hours away. How did Oh and Galvan look? Scores?

Barnhill will probably see a 20 percent uptick in innings, and LeLe will get most of the innings vacated by Gourley's graduation. We'll see a lot of Chronister and Lugo in February to see  if UF has a legit No. 3. Need a lefty to give them that great mix they had during their incredible run of the past 4 years

Romanello gives them an excellent three-player left-handed power core, but they lose most of their base-running speed with McLean gone. Who is at 3B?

Gourley a massive loss

Does SC have someone other than Oh coming in?  I'm not fully aware.

I think the offense won't be world-beaters, but I do expect it to be a little better this year.  I'm not sure how much is behind Osorio (because we will have to wait and see how the adjustment goes), but I'm hoping they can piece together games with Preston/Gettins.

There's the other SC freshman pitcher.

I enjoyed watching Oh pitcher throughout the years.  She is surely tested at the travel ball level.

It will be interesting to see how Texas A&M’s offense produces without Glasco as their hitting coach. Will they decline? Possibly improve? Any word on who might replace him?

I don't have stats, but was there a noticeable increase in offensive production during Glasco's time?

Just quickly looked at BA stats from Gerry's time at TAMU (.298; .328; and .278).  The two years prior to Glasco were .304 and .303.  Granted I didn't look at power numbers which are supposedly his forte, so there could be that.

You've never seen Oh?  She's a good one.  I'm not sure I want to throw any expectations on her shoulders, but she has the abilities to be an ace (maybe not as a freshman, but at some point).

Here are just some stats...“In his three seasons at Texas A&M, the Aggies produced a slash line of .300/.400/.500. His clubs tallied 465 extra-base hits, including 213 home runs and scored 6.1 runs per game over that span.”

I’m not sure how they were offensively before he got there, but I’m assuming they have improved under him.

I don't follow the stats enough, but I always thought TAMU had a pretty solid offense for as long as I followed them.  It will be interesting to see what their change is, but having Keeli, Samantha, Kaitlyn and Tori will be a good base for someone.

Slash line must be overall - they didn't do that in two of the three seasons.

It very well could be overall. I just got those stats from Auburn’s press release from when they announced Glasco as an assistant.

Yes gourley is a massive loss for Florida. Not only as a pitcher but as an emotional player as well.IMO in order for Florida to make it far in post season chronister needs meaningful innings behind barnhill and ocasio. Since technically fall ball doesn't count vs stats I think Lugo and chronister should pitch the fsu game. Give them that post season team to pitch to and it wouldn't count against them.
