re: Official LSU Softball Recruiting Thread: Commits & Targets
I will say this.... I really like the coach. I am finding out thought, that the idea that a coach knows her team better than a fan (like me) does, is probably true with Beth more than anyone else.

I dont understand a lot that she does, and that she does not do. If Cunningham was so good, why didnt she play? (Not questioning whether she was or was not good enough, just why didnt she play?)

Another thing, I do not understand why a coach would keep someone all the way to their senior year when there is really no chance whatsoever that they will play? I would rather keep a freshman and hope she'd develop, than keep a senior, like whats her name last year, who never really played in all four years she was on the team. I dont get it.

I'm hearing Springfield is moving to catcher to help cover the depth issue and was also told that Sanchez is moving to second to uphold the high standard and tradition we have seen at that position the last few years. She will be a perfect fit.


Sarcasm? Well 2B is her natural position, not 3B. She doesn't have the arm for that position even though she looked much better towards the end of the season. I really think Schulte will end up at 2B.

Schlattman also will get a lot of looks too at catcher but I am gonna bet Caccamise ends up as a starter. She is pretty impressive defensively, a good ceiling as a hitter too. I would like to see Springfield at 1B and Doyle at 3B.

re: Official LSU Softball Recruiting Thread: Commits & Targets
I am continuing the 2018 class from the post from the last page

Morgan Cummins
She plays for one of the top HS teams in the entire country Lakewood Ranch HS. She just switched travel teams to Georgia Impact this summer. Primarily a catcher but can also play 1B and 2B. She batted a little over .450 last year with 9 home runs and 7 doubles. Known for her bat. Extremely powerful, can change the game with one swing. She had a little inconsistencies at the beginning of last season but exploded a month into the season. She is sold defensively, fielded .977 last season. She is a top 200 prospect by FloSoftball. Lots of raw athletic ability with an extremely high ceiling. Pretty exciting prospect to keep an eye on. Has the ability to hit the middle of the lineup while at LSU.

Taylor Tidwell:

She had a little rocky junior year but still was impressive. Batted a little over .380 but did hit 9 homeruns and 11 doubles. I expect she will put up big numbers her senior year. She is an infielder who is solid defensively, not an all star but solid. She has a plus arm. Pretty damn good hitter. A little streaky at times but has developed more consistency. A lot of pop in her bat. She had a good summer and was very impressive at the US Elite Select. She looked much improved with her fielding and her mechanics at the plate. Nice quick hands and was extremely consistent. She made first team and All American at the camp for the 2018/2019 class. She currently isn't ranked by FloSoftball but after a good summer and showing at camps, don't be shocked to see her make a big jump somewhere in the next update. She will likely play 2B here at LSU but is athletic enough to play many other places, including the OF. Very high ceiling for her too, the staff thinks she is a hidden gem in this class.

I watched Gorsuch and Sunseri pitch and hit in club ball the last few years. Gorsuch was a beast in the circle and at the plate. They have changed her so much I didn't even recognize her last year. Sunseri has a long way to go but she has talent. Watched her pitch this summer. Not the most confident kid I have ever seen.
LSU has a reputation in club circles as a cookie cutter coaching approach to hitting and pitching. That does not work for most. Leave those kids alone and let them pitch and hit.

post being deleted?

Guess things that cut too close need to be removed.

Good luck to the girls this year. Hope they can improve upon the past 3 seasons worth of work.

Relevance? If you don't post 10 or 20 times a day you can't have an opinion?

We all had a day where we had 1 post. No one on this board is an exception.

You the TD police or what? I have followed LSU SB for quite some time and know many of the players LSU recruits or plays against. Might just have some good insight for you good old boys up there. What would you like to know?

No I was just kidding! I promise

Welcome! Looking forward to hearing your insight to the players!

There are so many alters in softball threads it gets suspicious now a days!


Looking forward to hearing more!

Do you post on the softball forum on robocoach? I thought I saw you!

Btw that thread is disgusting and distasteful as it gets.

Bluedog and grindz are definitely scumbags

Grindz...ah he's simply repeated somethings said here. Although someone said I was a huge supporter of Dawson. That's not true though. I said from day 1, she was a pinch runner until proven otherwise.

bluedog doesn't think Howard teaches efficient swing mechanics. You've basically agreed to some extent so what's your issue with him?

re: Official LSU Softball Recruiting Thread: Commits & Targets
I have my disagreements at times with Dobsons hitting approach but that wasn't what I was referring to. I think some of our hitters need adjustments, not saying major but little things make a big difference even at the plate. Springfield, Griggs and Serrett all have good tools but a little bit of refining and adjusting can make a big difference for all of them. The girls are already back and rolling, everyone is hungry to improve, excited to see where it takes us during fall ball time. I don't know the fall ball complete schedule but I do know we have scrimmages on Nov 3 and 4 I think.

The LSU Softball thread on that forum is a viscous one that has gone into attacking the coaches and even the players on a personal level, that's what I am disgruntled by

Keep us informed. Daily if you have anything. How practice is going. Who is looking good, things like that. Rumors, that is interesting to.

I do not see a volunteer coach (?) listed on coaching staff. Don't we usually have one?

So it's just like the softball posts on the Rant.

We do have a volunteer coach and they will announce that person later. The previous one went back to Tennessee in a paid position.

Seems to be even worse, the guy is attacking our incoming freshman and recruits who have yet to even play one game here

I just saw all of that. It's got to be a parent. I have two guesses, but I'll keep those to myself. We'll be done with one of those next year, and we're already done with another. True LSU fans may critique and criticize, but not attack and this person is attacking. I'm about to post there and take care of this crapola!

Like I told a parent of one of our current seniors when that person talked down to me like I don't know anything -- "You'll be gone in 4 years, but I'll still be here supporting our Tigers! It's called being an alumni and having ties to our school for LIFE!"

re: Official LSU Softball Recruiting Thread: Commits & Targets
I know exactly who you are talking about. A lot of the girls parents are wonderful people, a few really kill it for everyone else I should say. I think the parents are practically causing all this drama, disgruntled ones who didn't have their ways. The program will be a lot better off when these people are gone.

Listen I can understand arguing game plan, philosophy or approach. That is the type of stuff we should be debating and exploring but half the junk spewed in that thread is strictly looking to diminish players and coaches, players who have yet to take one at bat for this program.

I know for a fact a few players have already read through that entire thread and its being monitored by people on staff.

re: Official LSU Softball Recruiting Thread: Commits & Targets
We'll everyone should know where I stand. I have in the past and will continue to defend our players and coaches as much as humanly possible. All I want is our players to represent our university with hustle and CLASS. Winning will take care of itself.

I get so frustrated when I see people like Ducote or this Grindz fellow trash our players. It's wrong on every account and I hate that people hide behind there screen names. Y'all should know who I am as I've said my name several times.

I've been on vacation in Sint Maarten for the past week. Left before Harvey exploded into a category 4 storm, so I've tried to have fun, but worried about my mother and our house. At least I know she's safe and so far no damage that I know of. I've been in pins and needles and then I found out the attacks on our players so I lost my cool and went of the attack after that person. Wish I wouldn't have known.

Time for me to get home hopefully tonight and maybe my attitude will be better then. I need to relax!
