The list is legit, whats wrong with it? Is it just because of Dobson? I know you are a Dobson hater so thats probably it

Can't imagine that everyone doesn't know that Melissa Lombardi is the top pitching coach in America.

Ricketts, Parker and Lowary were all unquestionably top-of-the-top pitching recruits.

She's great, but let's not make it look like she is taking middling recruits and getting this product

When it was  Kelsey Stevens ....

Same with Rocha. Her blue-chips, they've done fine.

"Howard Dobson"

How do you consider him a top hitting coach when his team can only muster 2-3 runs per game??

Its not him its more the players IMO, LSU doesn't have any talent outside the mound

he had solid offenses at OU and Southern Miss 

Patty thinks Dobson is one of the best out there

I’m curious as to what your criteria are for this list? There is a difference between recruiting talented kids (who are sometimes being glued back together by heir hitting and pitching coaches at home) and improving the kids you get. Please explain your thought process.

After watching the Razorbacks touch up Osorio for 9 hits in their win today, I'd say somebody is doing a good job in Fayetteville.  I couldn't find the name of the hitting coach on their website.

Look at players when they enter a program and as they leave it

Are they much better player when they finish as when they started? 

Probably the best measurement

Agreed. So, if a school gets a kid who throws 68-70 with two legit pitches and the kid graduates throwing 68-70 with two legit pitches, then that doesn’t land them on the list, right?

Well performance outputs obviously needs to be looked at. Sometimes that doesn't tell the full story either.

It depends how you want to look at it

Does a pitcher develop another pitch or improve location? Does the ERA improve?

Does a hitter hit for a better average each season? Can they improve in pitch selection etc..

Let’s compare Lowary at Missouri and Lowary at Oklahoma, Lomabardi is the best in the business.

Rocha can’t even get KB legal.

Lombardi is half the brains of OUs staff if she ever wanted to be a head coach every college in America would be begging her to come. I always wondered which day that would be my hope is if Gasso retires ever she would get the gig .....she has spent over 20 years with Gasso and could of left multiple times like Walton and Roach

Does Lombardi ever want to be a head coach?

I’m sure that she aspires to be a head coach but her current gig with a 185k salary is pretty good, it would be hard to leave for less than a major P5 job.

Rocha doesn't always get blue chips. And she gets a lot out of them.

Rocha is obviously one of the top coaches but she came and learned it from Lombardi and Gasso. Rocha and Lombardi and genious as far as pitch calls. They know tendencies and oppositions best pitches they hit best. I really can’t tell you how much OU would miss her if she ever left. If I was a college AD I would pay her top 5 salary and see if she takes it. 185k for a assistant coach is serious money In softball. I just think her relationship with Gasso is as strong as it gets they work so well together. Lombardi was a former catcher. The catcher obviously plays a huge role in a pitcher success.

Gerry Glasco disciple. Learned his style while together at UGA.

I will throw Glasco into best hitting coaches

Also, in a few years we will all be talking about Griffin Joiner among the top pitching coaches. She is going to be special!

Given the relatively small number of called IP's, I'd say for the most part, she is legal. Your interpretation of IP's is of little consequence to Rocha.
