I agree. Also, they are stealing 2nd base at will!
Had to figure we were due for a down year. May struggle to win a regional.
Thought we would see a drop off just because of the players we lost off of last year's team, but this was not a good game by us today. We had as many errors as we had runs, gave up 6 SBs out of 6 attempts, and walked 5 batters. Need to win tomorrow.
Richard has played well at 3rd until today and has hit the ball well in Courtney's absence.
Agree that she helped us lose today in a major way with the 3 errors in one inning.
Hate to lose to AU in anything, but we also left alot of ducks on the pond today.
As to Courtney, we hear she has been ill and will take several weeks to get back to playing regularly.
She did come in at 3rd in the game earlier this week for 1/2 of an inning.
Today was upseting, but our ladies are still the defending national champions and will continue to be so until we lose it in OK City. If we play well late in the year we have as good of a chance to win it all as anyone else.
Roll Tide Ladies!

Courtney doesn't have the bat that Richard does. Dani had a horrible defensive game for sure, but hit the homerun to give us the 3-0 lead. Courtney has been battling mono which takes time to get over. To say this team wouldn't win a regional is simply ridiculous. One bad game does not make a bad season. These same things were said last year and we won the national championship.
Thanks for the info on Courtney. Had mono when I was in college as well. It is the sickest I have ever been in my life. Thought I was dying for several weeks. Hope she can get over it and come back strong.
LOL you know when we have a bad game were going to have the complete overreactors (g). Gotta love us all, right? Funny also about Richard, everything she's does leading up to today means nothing. The bat she possesses means nothing. O and the fact she's played the hot corner pretty darn well considering how she has had to be counted on every day since CC's issues (as a freshman)....Bad days happen to everyone who ever suits up and plays sport. She's helped win far more than what she's failed at to date.
The great thing about some fans - if we come out and dominate tomorrow....all will be fine again.
Still can win the series tomorrow, the exact goal of every 3 game set. ROLL Lady TIDE ROLL....

(Hope I don't end up with a double post. Not sure where my 1st one went.)
We had a bad day, plain and simple. We have a good team with lots of interchangeable players. We'll be better with Courtney back at 3rd on a regular basis. Richard can be backup and get as many at bats as possible.
We need a catcher to emerge from the 3 that can slow down runners stealing 2nd. AU never slowed down at all today.
We need to get timely hits and not leave so many runners stranded.
We should develope our team strengths as the year progresses. I'm excited to see Jadyn Spencer and Leona Lafaele hitting with power. I've been waiting a season and a half for Jadyn to show us all why CPM recruited her and I think we are seeing that lately (I am a big fan of hers for the record).
We just need to be ready come Regional time. I'm dissappointed that we have some loses, but we still have a great softball team.
You're right! Our 1st task is to beat AU tommorrow.
I forgot to add that I'm still real excited about all of our freshman.
I continue to be a big fan of our entire BAMA softball team. Roll Tide Ladies!
