It's still the Big 8 since there is only 8 softball programs in the conference. How many softball programs were there in the conference in your day?

Won't bother me if Kentucky is where we go to find our softball head coach, too.

There is no question that that has been a constant at Oregon since he took over a 16-34 team in fall of 2009, and hasn't lost a regional game in those nine years. Then, add in the collection of offensive players he has successfully recruited on partial out of state scholarships... to the sticks of Eugene.

Despite that, there are five active coaches with resumes better than his in his 9 years: Gasso, Walton, alameda, murphy and the Westwood mob queen with her LangenNatty in White's first year.

coaching, recruiting, knowing the rules... lawson is great, but compare the resumes


Are you secretly hoping the Horns hire your boy?

What difference does it make, how many teams there were.

Nah.

But to argue that, other than a short, short list of title-winners, White isn't the most qualified candidate... and it coming from the It Means More pile of lemmings... Gets the blood moving

Just like in women's bb, when UT gets a coach that brings recruiting on par with top 20 programs, Texas softball will be able to compete with OU.  No softball player wanting to play deep into the tourney would ever commit to Texas during the recent CC years.  I am not even sure any top player had an offer from CC before getting offers from many top programs because she liked to take her time.  The top A&M and Baylor softball players we know never had Texas offers.  Many Texas players were non scholarship "walk-ons."  It won't take much to improve recruiting, but if Texas can ever get it to top 10 levels, the team will not be travelling anywhere for regionals or super regionals.

Two adjectives keep coming to mind, and I can't decide which is most appropriate:

(a) Optimistic
(b) Delusional

JK. Hope y'all get a great coach.

Any updates or rumors? Seems odd there is still no coach for this job!

I guess that it is possible that they're waiting to make an announcement during the UT baseball game on Sunday...  On the other hand I am amazed how quiet this thing has been...

So if the Jimmy Kolatis to UAB rumor is true, is that another sign UT might be grabbing up Mike White?

If Mike White was leaving don’t you think Jimmy would be holding out to try to get Oregon?
Wouldn’t think this move to UAB has anything to do with White

I don't think it is related in the least.

Both may perhaps occur still. But they would not be related.

Tripp is not in contention for the job. He has told players as much. I have heard Eriksen-Cat combo and then heard Gajewski was in contention for the job as well. Should be announced today or tomorrow.

OK, so UT possibly hires Eriksen to baby sit Cat until she is ready.  Figured UT was looking for a current D1 Coach to fulfill the baby sitting role.  Especially after Cat turned down D1 jobs last year.  Eriksen could focus one eye on team USA and keep the other eye on "the kid". 

Gajewski is an interesting thought coming out of the "Walton Tree"...

We shall see...
