It's the first day of signing week for most college sports, including basketball, which a lot of us actually care about.

Everyone should care about softball. (along with football, basketball and baseball). Don't specialize in just one sport)

Who are you talking to?

I "care" about all Liberty sports, but my level of interest varies greatly. When it comes to signing day, the order would be:

Men's Basketball
Football
Baseball
Women's basketball
Softball
Anything else

To be honest, it drops off A LOT after football. That's just me. Unlike some, I don't believe in trying to impose my priorities on others.

On paper it looks/sounds like Wagoner is the ace pitcher we've been looking for Dot to sign for the last 5 years. Hope that plays out on the field.

Here's the article about Dot's incoming freshman class for fall 2020:

https://www.liberty.edu/flames/index.cf ... _X5p5uaD7E

It looks like the second best pitcher in the class will instead be playing infield for us. :dontgetit Coach me up, Ballcoach.

Raye Green has these kinds of pitching stats (but she will an infielder): 17-2 record, 0.493 ERA and 144 strikeouts.

First thought is she must be a heckofan infielder. Second is that, while we haven't seen it much since Dot has been our coach, it's not unusual at all in college softball for a pitcher to play a position when they are not on the mound.
