    Default Louisiana Softball Makes BR Regional

    Louisiana is the #2 seed going against the #3 seed Houston going into the BR Regional. We really need to buckle down and show we can win this Regional. We need to win games and take one day at a time.

    First game is on Friday May 18th at 3:00 P.M.

    Geaux Cajuns!!!

    I too am not confident we can win this regional this year. But I do think we got a favorable draw this year going to B.R. as opposed to many of the other regionals we could have drawn.

    It is a good draw considering. Summer can match up against most teams, but where is the offense? Not sure about Fordham or Houston, but LSU-BR can't hit. We have a shot in a pitchers duel if we play them, but otherwise it doesn't look good.

    I think us playing in the BR Regional will hopefully light a fire under this team. If we do go against LSU hopefully Glasco understands the importance of us beating LSU in this regional. Specially at LSU, to me beating them in this regional, is more important then the midweek games in baseball and the NIT tournament in Basketball.

    Shocked, Surprised, Not Confident, Criticize, etc. . . .

    Folks, In December, we were not even sure that we could field a team, much less one that could compete, albeit, at the highest levels.

    These ladies and their new coaching staff have done a wonderful job this year, Top 25, Top 25 RPI, 1/2 game out of conference championship, lost in finals of conference tournament after beating TST in the second round and now a 2 cede in a regional in which we match up about the best we can. While the team may have lost games they probably should not have lost, all in all, considering the state of circumstances they were faced with from the beginning, they have done pretty damn good.

    Hopefully this weekend we continue to pitch well, get a couple of baseball breaks and prevail again like they have done all year.

    Then, the same people can continue to be Shocked, Surprised, Not Confident, etc. . . . but they should no longer be in a position criticize . . .

    There's one thing Glasco has that the previous coach did not. That is... Lots and lots of experience playing against Torina. He knows how to beat her.

    Great post.....where we are today as to where we thought we'd be at this point in December is nothing less than amazing.

    GEAUX Cajuns!

    P.S. I also went to my first softball games ever in Lamson this past weekend. Was blown away by the passion of these fans and players.

    There was never a moment anyone thought we might have a problem fielding a team, even a competitive team.

    There was definitely a period of time that it looked like a full mutiny could take place. Had that happened... we would have been toast this season. We owe the women that chose to hang in there and work their way through a tough emotional roller coaster. We owe Dr. Maggard, T-Joe and their people the effort they gave in rapidly bringing in a top head softball coach and staff.

    Trust me, the day that the coach got fired and the news media showed a bunch of young ladies leaving Lamson Park with their belongings in trash bags after having been locked out of their earned surroundings, that was a moment that many had concern over whether we would be in a position to field a team this year.

    We do absolutely owe all of them our loyalty and gratitude. I just never felt or believed we were in danger of not fielding a team, nor a competitive team. Absolutely possible we weren't going to be competitive at a high level.

    Winning a regional would be impressive with the hitting limitations the squad deals with. However, from a national perspective NIT basketball (even when dwarfed by the NCAA) will always gets more attention than any softball game. Simply a factor of of the northern portion of the country not paying attention to a female diamond sport. I understand that may not be the view of some of our softball supporters due to the passion with which they support their favorite program. My point is not to disrespect those positions or the accomplishments of the female athletes which represent us with class. It is simply to point out how things are viewed nationally.

    Remember the whole "they locked us out of the stadium" story? While the whole Lotief story had to be covered, the news and social media helped sensationalize it and draw division between the fans. Those players that stayed had to show some mental toughness to stick together. Those that did, anyway. They are to be commended.
