Stanford softball has become such a disgrace. It's time to pull the plug on Rachel Hansen and her staff. They could not finish in the top half of the Big West.

I hope those lying sack if sh!t parents are happy.

Hey nutless, at least you could get Rachel's name right.  Hanson!  Now, go make another anonymous post.

All of these comments are 100% right on the button.  Definite time for a coaching change.  Muir totally effed up the Rittman situation.  The girls are the ones who ultimately suffer from the poor coaching!  They deserve much better in every aspect of the game.  Another gOOse egg and 24 league record looks rather apparent again!

Why don't you post a user name?  Who are you?  Fan or helicopter parent or troll?

Ahhhh, boo-hoo. Don't worry in a few years no one will remember her first name either.

So, you are so adamant about your position that you make a post as "unregistered?"  Grow some and put your name there is you are going to be critical.  How about using your typical screen name here?  Look, I don't have a problem with any coach being criticized.  I do have a problem with someone going out of their way to attack a coach and doing so the chicken $hit way.

From a distance it would appear Coach Hanson put in a very difficult position. In fact practically impossible. I can easily criticize the administration for a number of things. Even Coach Rittman for a lot of things. But hard to criticize this young coach who actually should never have been given a PAC 12 job based on her resume. Her resume is better now than when she was hired due to at least having experience at the level of the PAC 12 . And you would not choose that resume today. My guess.

This a very fair post.

Yeah, I'd love to hire someone who's resume essentially says "Took a perennial top-25 program and ran it into the ground."

Well, sorry... she signed up for the criticism by applying for and taking the big-time, much-better-paying gig.

Too bad. The players get ripped for one bad play in the heat of action, a coach should be exponentially more prepared to have his or her record scrutinized and lauded or criticized

You are a pud!  It wasn't this simple and you know it.  With the backstabbing, whiny ass support, ... no one in their right mind would have taken that job and yet a very good person did knowing there would be those like you questioning her ever move.

Ok, a coach with a .500 record saw an opportunity to take a job that would pay her more money and raise her profile, taking this job was about her and no one else. More than 10 other coaches turned it down, coaches with more experience and better resumes. Perhaps she should have looked at the situation and realized it was too much for her, because many of us speculated it was and her record has only proven us right. In year 3, her team just surrendered 41 runs while only mustering 2. They may get a win or two against the likes of Oregon State (another program with a coach in over her head) but that won't prove a thing. This team is the worst Stanford has ever seen and the players and fans deserve better. At least the seniors had one year of decent coaching.

Laura Berg will do just fine when she gets anywhere near a school with an even decent in-state talent feed... and has lights and more than 800 seats at the facility where her team plays

Stanford has the best all-around women's athletic program in the country, so perhaps it can be forgiven for being down in softball at this time.

If it is true Stanford is the richest school country...and have the best all_around women's program...Wouldn't this be great if the coach is let go and they go out and offer one of the top coaches in the Country (who ever you think that is) So much money they can't turn it down...then that drives up the pay scale for all coaches?

I understand some people wanting to criticize, but they lost pretty much all of their recruits following the whole Rittman saga. And it is true that a lot of other people turned down the job. Who do they think they were going to be able to hire? Hanson did turn around Dartmouth which had been dormant for a long time in the Ivy. That has to count for something.

I feel like you've got to give her a couple more years before you say she can't handle it or is in over her head. We all know how early recruiting is goes.

I've heard there were other restrictions the athletic department enforced on her at least for the first season that could've been part of the reason others turned down the position and led to poor performance on the field.

I totally agree. Some people talk before knowing everything. They will be back being competitive again.

No, they cannot be forgiven for it.  Stanford produced Jessica Mendoza for chrissakes!

I'm the Eddie Feigner of softball forums 3leftturns. That's all you need to know. Ever seen an old man pitch by throwing balls behind his back from second base? I'm that guy when it comes to posting on fastpitch forums.
