Veteran laden teams dont salvage their season by winning the NIT if they were already in the tourney the year before or last couple years. Again im no expert but i dont see the offense needed to go further. I said it the first 2 weeks of the season and it rang true. Just need more hitters that can drive the ball. The threat of it forces defenses to play different and forces pitchers to try to be more accurate and then causes mistakes.I have a theory on that. I don't think Dot recruits what JK37 once referred to here as "big boned" girls to the extent some coaches do.
For those that know softball recruiting more than me, are we not iding the right hitters, cant get them here, injuries, or What?

We did hit 3 or 4 balls hard, and outfielders made good play on ball.

Ballcoach said that was good coaching, but LU still won 1-0.Pretty much anyone would have walked her with first base open. Thats a no-brainer. What makes ballcoach's "stratigery" unique is that he would have done it if the runners had been on first and second, or even with the bases loaded if we had a bit of a lead.
