    The play to end all plays.

    Fastpitch is the sport, power hitting is still his game.

    We were called for illegal pitches in SBC competition on a regular basis. Our hitting and overall good pitching overcame that glaring weakness.

    A training academy is a good fit for him. I think it's the competitive environment that brought out the over-the-top behavior. I do not think he'll use the language or tactics at a training academy that he would in collegiate softball competition.

    That was my thoughts also. After reading just 5-6 pages of the accusation report, he was hung. Could not deny any of it, not with all the witnesses.

    We were called because our group of SBC officials. If you watched other conferences and official groups pitchers were virtually never called for what we were called. That's why you didn't see it called at all in the post season.

    The reason Alex was called so much is her knee didn't bend right after injury and she had to wear a brace. He foot pointed sideways rather than down and created a gap. The All American from Florida leaped and was never called.

    I LOVE Mike and Steff, they will be missed, their talents missed, their hard work and dedication, their loyalty!! Whatever all happened on either( both sides of the pancake) I hope both Mike and the Administration learn from this to the betterment of themselves and the Louisiana Program! I HOPE BOTH sides understand it is NOT the Programs fault NOR ALL the Coaches/Players/ or FANS that helped to build this program and Will continue to remember IT for what it WAS to THEM AND WIlL LONG to continue to follow and Support EVERY Louisiana Program for The rest of their lives! Life is TOO Short!

    Mike taught his pitchers to crow hop.

    This off-season has been quite an education.

    Mike's the one poisoning his legacy. Not UL who has nothing to apologize for.

    Exactly. Look at Hud, that is how you exit. Only one side of this situation is burning bridges.
