I just knew we had the edge when the superfan was there leading the cheers. Seriously.

I thought he said he wasn't coming to another home game?

I never understood the lofty preseason rankings for this group but I do feel like we’ll be a major WCWS contender next season.

11-10 in the SEC and in 7th place.

Totally unacceptable.

Time for HCBT to step it up, become less stubborn and make some Staff changes. (When have we seen this at LSU previously; sounds a little familiar, huh?)

Remember the old ESPN series Playmakers? The owner tells the head coach: “Fire your offensive coordinator. Or I’ll fire him for you.”

It’s past time Scott tells Beth: “Fire your hitting coach. Or I’ll fire him for you.”

Simply put.....we are not recruiting big time players. They may be big time before they get here, but once here too many of them are duds. The transfer portal should be filled with defections from this roster after the season. Pitchers are sub par and hitters are mediocre at best. I don't know if you can attribute these poor performances to coaching entirely. We have to recruit much better than what we have been. This is a very disappointing team this year.

Who coaches the defense on this team. What about the pitchers. All 3 phases of this team have been bad this season. Can we attribute all of this to COVID and just taking time off. Its the PLAYERS

If we aren’t evaluating the talent correctly, how can you say that is not a coaching issue? I like Beth a lot. I think she had earned her reputation as being one of the best coaches on campus. That said, I keep hearing that she is intensely stubborn. I don’t see why she doesn’t try something different with the batters. Maybe Dobson was considered a great hitting coach at one time, but perhaps the game has passed him by. Over the years, LSU has had some of the best pitchers in the country, but when clutch time comes, we hang them out to dry because we can’t hit. There really is no reason why we shouldn’t have won a natty with Hoover, Bell, Walljasper, Jaquish, Landry, etc. on the roster.

LSU played two early games v. Bama. Do they not count as conference games in the standings?

I haven’t seen a single post calling for Beth’s head. It’s Dobson that people are losing patience with.

One problem I think we have with our hitters—certainly not the only one—is Dobson relies way too much on slappers when they are becoming passé.

I am not a softball coach and some regular posters on the softball threads are. Maybe this is just Dobson’s style, but his slappers have way too many “moving parts” in the box. Pull bat down to bunt. Pull it back. Run up to slap the ball. Hell, no wonder they can’t make good contact with all these pre-swing motions.

I use Emily Griggs again. She became a much better hitter when she stopped slapping and went to a conventional style. Aliyah Andrews should be the only slapper on this team with maybe a little from Ciara Briggs. Anybody else depending on slapping should be replaced by a better hitter so yes, that is a recruiting issue.

We’ve talked about Sunseri’s decline at the plate. Amanda Doyle has had an okay career here but she’s really no better at the plate than she was as a freshman and she’s now a fifth-year senior. She has the talent where by now she should be another Burnside, hitting .360-.380 with 20-25 home runs. And yes, high school All Americans not developing and declines like Sunseri’s are squarely the fault of Howard Dobson.
