Good for her. What ended up being the final score?

Wish I could have attended more fall ball games, would have had a spreadsheet of all the stats, which would have been nice.

It was nice to see Morgan Cummins homer yesterday. Hope to see some power from her this year.

LSU realased the schedule this year, and it's much easier than years past.

Top Non Conference Games:
Oklahoma State x2
Louisiana x2
Texas Tech
Washington
Cal

The rest of the Non conference games are pretty easy.

In conference the schedule goes

At South Carolina
Miss State
Georgia
At Ole Miss
At Alabama
Tennessee
Mizzou
At Auburn

The toughest series obviously being Alabama, after that maybe Tennessee (who is very young in the circle) and South Carolina (who should be good, but underachieved in 2019).

Expect a lower RPI for LSU this year. It's very much like Alabama's schedule was last year. The only difference is that Alabama had a harder conference schedule. This is a very young team for LSU but the games against OSU and UL are VERY important early in the season. Tennessee, Alabama, and South Carolina SHOULD be top 15 teams when we face them. Hopefully (but they should be), Georgia, Ole Miss, and Mizzou are top 25 teams. And Hopefully both Miss State and Auburn have good records because this schedule needs top peformers.

re: LSU Softball Commitment List/Recruiting Info
The Cajuns will be our most difficult ooc opponent. Washington will most likely be without Plain this year due to the Olympics.

That OOC slate is still tougher than Alabama’s OOC last year overall. Have to take care of business vs the teams we should and have good overall performances vs the quality teams. There will be plenty of opportunities to get quality wins for our RPI.

re: LSU Softball Commitment List/Recruiting Info
Can somebody correct me if I am reading this wrong but by my count are we going to be carrying 7 pitchers next year? That's not even counting Victoria Abrams and Kara Goff. We lose Gorsuch and go into next season with Kilponen, Wickersham, Edwards, Sunseri and now Casanova, Roos and Smith. Is there a mass migration being anticipated or something? I dont know that I've ever seen a D1 school have at least 7 pitchers whether they were able to hit or not. Maybe I'm over thinking it, but this signing class puts the roster total for next year at 27. That's a lot of players.

Regardless, looks like a great class! These three classes in a row starting with this years freshman class could be the difference in going to the World Series, and playing on Monday in June. Excited for the future of this program!

Roos is mainly a position player who is capable of pitching. She hits much better than she pitches. We did not recruit her for her pitching specifically . Its just kinda a bonus.

Morgan Smith is much like a Sunseri type player who can do it all, and is probably much more versatile as well. She can play in the outfield as well. She will be a big player for us from the start. Pretty powerful bat. She continues to develop as a pitcher.

Casannova is a bit of a project as she did well at camps. They saw some potential so they are giving her a shot.

Kilponen, Wickersham, Sunseri, Smith are really your main pitchers for 2021 season.

Casanoova and Edwards will continue to work, maybe something great happens with them. If not we are fine. I am truly unsure of what the future holds for Edwards tbh. It really all depends on how she grows and works her freshman year.

Goff and Abrams are position players first. We won't have 10 girls working the bullpen.

Roster turnover is too early to predict.

re: LSU Softball Commitment List/Recruiting Info
357, I just happened to check in on twitter while resting in my room on vacation in Australia and saw the great class that we signed. But on Twitter all I saw for each player was their travel ball team and not one mention of their high school team, and as a longtime high school coach and Diamondbacker, I almost threw my phone into the outback.

But I went to the LSU sports website and there is a detailed description of each one's high school career so I'm all good now as that high school connection is still as important as the travel ball one... lol...

Now of we can have peace at the home games this year and be able to watch and cheer without distractions, it will be awesome! Lol lol

re: LSU Softball Commitment List/Recruiting Info
Heard mike smith is suspended for ole miss

Surprised it hasn’t happened sooner tbh. Considering what that athletic department is going through since the football scandal, doubt they have much tolerance for any scandals with a softball program.

Wow! That's some interesting news to wake up to. Checked robocoach and there is a thread about it too. Not much info so far.

One of my former players was recruited by him to McNeese and when he left for Ole Miss, she said it was the happiest day in her life.

re: LSU Softball Commitment List/Recruiting Info
Softball coach Mike Smith placed on administrative leave



quote:

Carter provided no additional details about the suspension. Sources, however, have told the Ole Miss Spirit the audit centers around "cultural" concerns associated with the program and that players and staff will be interviewed during the investigative process.

A call to Smith's cell phone Monday was not immediately returned.

Smith was suspended for the opening weekend of the 2019 season for an undisclosed violation by then athletics director Ross Bjork.


Heard he is a pretty abusive coach who treats his athletes badly. He has a hx of making threats to players. He had some major falling outs with the administration down in McNeese before he left for Ole Miss.

They announced this after all their recruits signed
