Grindz is doing a great job of impersonating Jesse Wildcat - maybe it's the reincarnation of JW down south?  [biggrin]

JW was a ULL fan.  Please tell me someone on here remembers when JW was posting about ULL fans coming to Garman wearing bikinis around 2008 or so.

Best I could do on a quick search (was off on my dates):

I just found out about this thread while on vacation and it disturbed me so much that I'm going to give my two cents. 

Grindz, there's no freaking way that you are an LSU alumni or fan because while a true fan may critique and criticize coaching decisions, the true fan doesn't cross the line and talk about internal stuff, nor criticize individual players on a forum like this. Remember, these are OUR athletes, and they represent OUR university (if you a fan or alumni), and our job is to support them in representing our school to the best of our abilities. 

I have a pretty good idea who you are, and if so, you probably know who I am and you know that I'm fiercely loyal to my university, teams, and players. I will not tolerate the bashing you are giving to our players and hopefully, I'll get a chance to visit with you at a game soon this season and we can speak personally about this. You may not like how the program is going, and I'm not saying that our program is perfect by any means as we do have flaws, but all schools have flaws, but your name calling is just plain freaking ridiculous and classless. 

I love the support from many of our parents, but there are some that I'm glad to see leave after 4 years. I hope the players never leave and support LSU as alumni forever. Like I've told a parent, which I'm thinking is you, "You'll be gone in 4 years, but I'll be here for a long time after you leave." 

Do I agree with everything our staff does, heck no, but my role is to cheer and I know what the coaches are going through since I did that for 30 years. I don't throw our coaches and especially players under the bus. 

You have posted things about players being kicked off -- how do you know that? You have to be a parent or a traitor on the staff. I know a lot of things and what you have said has been told to me quite differently. But honestly, it's none of our damn business and this is NOT the place to post crap like that. 

The majority of the loyal supporter who are reading this are texting me and are in shock that someone could spew so much hate towards our kids and really think you are an idiot. I'll save my comments for the time that I get to see you at a game and tell you exactly how I feel about what you're saying. 

That's my vent and time for me to pack up to go home back to Houston and clean up the mess that the hurricane left in my neighborhood while on vacation. Have a good day!

I notice yall are talking about me as well on TD

Everything I say is the truth. 

The team internally is a trainwreck. A lot of the girls love Leftwich but dislike Torina and Dobson. Most don't have respect for any of them. A few of the parents I am sure can confirm a lot of this stuff as well.

I love LSU and I love LSU Softball, I want us to succeed. I am frustrated that we continue to waste talent annually. Certain players get to play regardless. You already know who I am talking about. Those players were strongly disliked internally because they get better treatment. The kids can clearly see the favoritism, and it hurts. This has gone on for year but was more apparent than ever this season, it was crystal clear for everyone in the country to see. 

Its beginning to impact LSU on the recruiting trails, word going around is a few of our commits are looking else where right now.

Nope Grindz, you are fake news. You don't give a damn about LSU softball. If you did, you wouldn't be airing this on this forum. You are going to cause more damage than change. I'm hearing from people wondering if what you say is true so you personally are causing damage. Maybe you can stay on your perch in a Midwestern state and fire shots like your the North Korean dictator and see where they land.

You have one agenda and we all see right through this. So go back and hide in the wheat fields and leave us alone.

If anyone goes to see this team fall ball, let me know if Dobson actually made adjustments.

He is useless. Beth has recruited some decent hitters but most look very different now than what they came in.

It's causing a lot of issues with our hitters. They are struggling with his system

Why don't you go and do it?
Tell the coaches and players they all suck then go to the high schools of the recruits and tell them they suck too.

I think we can all agree this is a make or break season in a lot of ways. We have two great pitchers. Position players at the plate are not elite level, but that can be fixed. Some need major changes, a full revamp, others need tweaking. 

Griggs is a good example. She has a flat swing and can make contact, but she has to learn to turn her hips into the ball, she all arms when she swings. Still, at the end of the year last year, she made a comeback, and I know she has potential. I think it will fall in the hands of the batting coach. 

A full revamp would be Springfield. She has so much power, but she is a big girl, , she needs to abbreviate and compact her swing. 

Half of Doyle's problem is the way she positions her head as the ball is on the way. You either use your peripheral vision to see the pitcher and when the ball gets close to the strike zone you are looking right at it, or you look right at the pitcher and when the ball is close to the strike zone, you are using your peripheral vision, and that is where Doyle is at.  That is a problem Watch her. She cant follow the ball into the catchers glove because her face is pointed at the pitcher... this is why so many right handers bat left-handed... so they can use their stronger eye, the right eye, to see the pitcher peripherally and when the ball is close to the strike zone they are looking at it straight with both eyes.  

Lot of stuff for Dobson to do. This year is make or break i think.. If no adjustments are made, i'd be all for getting rid of him. 

Go watch some videos on YouTube of Oklahoma.. .or ULL.. they are systematic. Every single Oklahoma player elevates to their advantage and brings their eye level closer to the strike zone. 

Just for the sake of fairness.. there is a video of Allison Falcon batting with Howard Dobson explaining technique...and its pretty good, she has a beautiful swing. 

Let's just hope we see some changes and adjustments. 

Some of you are really hard on these girls and dont give any credit. Amanda Doyle is as good a third baseman as anybody else you will see. Serrett is a good shortstop. Find something nice to say if you gonna slam them, this is a team that finished sixth in the nation, they aint that bad at all.

I have to say I see what bluedog sees in this case. Having said that, I'm just delighted people are looking at video of elite swings and judging what they see rather than arguing about what someone taught them about how to swing.

Finding myself in the unexpected position of defending something related to LSU, I have to say the young lady I know who used to play for Dobson says all her team mates liked and respected him.

Grindz - its pretty sad for you to hide behind your moniker calling out players and coaches that you think suck.  Why don't you tell everyone your real name so readers here can call you out at your job and tell your boss and clients, if you have any which I highly doubt, how much of a low class whiner you are and how much you must suck at what at whatever you do.  You crossed the line calling out specific players and calling them garbage.  You are the epitome of a total coward.  And please stop saying you love LSU softball - you clearly have no love of LSU softball as all you are trying to do is destroy it.  Good luck with that as no doubt the program is much stronger than a loser like you.

That's going to make it difficult to knock the ball out of the catcher's mitt.

Listen to me you piece of sh1t!  When I have an opinion I sure wont hide behind some key board.  I learned about this stupid sh1t just today from the Florida State coach , and got on here to read it. Then I started to read it again tonight and I see that your fat ass is trying to put this on me, I tell you what, I will be at EVERY game like I have for 3 years, I have nothing to say on a message board.

Sure I have my opinions, but posting on here hiding behind some alias and not using your real name is a sign of a COWARD!  Just like the COWARDS who talk about my daughter being fat or all the other bullsh1t that is spewed on TIGERDROPPINGS

For the record....I have stepped away from anything to do with all softball, especially LSU softball.  It was doing nothing for my relationship with my daughter and it was just making me miserable!  My daughter loves LSU and she is very happy.....her and I agreed that it would be a great senior year, if we just sat back and enjoyed her final season.  Not that I feel I have to explain this to you....because it is none of your fu**ing business! 

I have very strong opinions some are right and some are wrong....but at the end of the day I will never hide behind a fake name or anything else.

Let me add this....I spent a couple minutes researching the coward GRINDZ.....you will see the alias has been on here talking about LSU softball long before my daughter got to LSU.  So 18handicap before you starting accusing people or making accusations, maybe you should take some of the retirement time you have and do some research!

Mark,

I didn't say it was you, but it did cross my mind. I use the wheat fields comment all the time where I'm from, but if that cleared the air that it wasn't you, then I'm glad I said it. There are a lot of people who thought it was you, and now we all know it wasn't.

Since you called me out by name, and for the rest it's Billy Hicks so y'all know I'm not hiding behind a screen name as well, you know darn well that I have and I will always defend EVERY player and coach on LSU team whether I agree with philosophy or not. My only reason to visit TD or this board is to defend our players...ALL of our players! I've told the staff that I was us to have players who represent my university with hustle and CLASS and that will take care of itself. Four trips to the WCWS in 6 years proves that point.

I've never cared for you because I didn't feel that you respected me because I was a high school coach, but I've always respected you for what you've done to help many girls get to continue their careers in college. There's a lot to proud of there and I think you have a wonderful family, so I overlook that and work to be friendly and know that we both want LSU to win. We may not agree with how to do it, but we're both entitled to our opinions.

I'm still pretty sure through my research who that person is, but I'm glad that you came out and cleared the air.

God, I have missed Griggs messages.  It's been since Stanford days, but I so wish we could get a weekly off-the-rocker post from Griggs.

I really hope none of that crap on TigerDroppings affects Emily in any way. I hope that she understands that it is just a vocal minority of a few deranged  lunatics who really do NOT have LSU's best interest at heart.  She is a fan favorite amongst those who really are FANS and not some idiots who troll on message boards, and as a fan, I love watching her play.

It is a dynamic that I really haven't been able to wrap my head around.  There are about 4-5 posters on that site who just come to talk crap about the program.  I am sure you know the "usernames" that I am referring to....I just havent been able to sort out who they are specifically in "real life"....and that is because they truly are cowards. I hope the departure of Dawson drives some of the cockroaches away.

If someone knows who Grindz is, please let that cat out of the bag.  The way he has gone after individual players here is spiteful and his lack of softball intelligence should be on full display for the softball world to see.

LSU has been to 4 WCWS in 6 years.

It has the appearances of the parent of a recruit that was either dropped by LSU or a parent of a player that wasn't offered by LSU. Probably someone local to Baton Rouge.

Who said your daughter was fat? Thats low

Hope Emily has a great senior year, she deserves it.


So how do you feel about this program going forward?

I was commenting on your post that it is futile to look at a moving ball.  Ted Williams said that he could see the seems on a baseball as the pitch was coming in.  Some people are gifted.  You do know this?
