Local paper, Statesman, called for UT to fire Clark this year.  Pointed out that the program has not gone anywhere.  For some reason, she has recruited players who are backups on select teams and she has let the elite starter players go to A&M, Baylor, Tenn, and even Houston.  When you carefully study the players who end up leaving, she offered those players when they were sophomores and juniors and they took up valuable space.  They were not even stars on their high school teams.  One day, they will let her go.  Patterson would have done it, but he was gone before he could turn to this sport.

There's no excuse for UT to not be a dominant program. Clark got Osterman and got Texas up in the ranks and then failed to recruit any pitching (except Luna) since then. Texas has amazing players and it's an AMAZING school!!! there should be no reason they aren't dominating the recruiting circuit every year. With all the talent in Texas and surrounding areas (LA, FL, MS) there aren't any excuses. I agree that Clark should be gone! Texas needs someone competitive and more clued in to get out of this hole.

I, for one, have no problem with the job Connie Clark has done at Texas.

Good question and I NEED the answer! It's bewildering anyone can be happy with the progress of UT after Osterman. Tennessee got their big ace and rose to the top and have maintained a steady progress over the years. Texas got maybe the best EVER and then never built off of it. Luna carried her weight, but she only got them to the WCWS ONCE. T Davis couldn't get them to a super. Texas is supposed to be a power and they're getting outplayed. Who would have imagined the days where UT would be competing competeively with Houston? Baylor has become more of a power than them in the state and Texas is doing nothing to compete with them. I don't even like Texas, but as a softball fan it is HARD to watch.

Is it uncool to be happy about the struggles of a program one has a deep and abiding disdain for? [cool]
