    "Fumbles" also required more coding on my part, so I haven't written a fumble replacement in about 6-years.

    For the record I did have erroneous "ULL" and -Louisiana Lafayette" references coded to say Louisiana. However more than a few web links to outside articles had the term in their links (including The Advertiser sometimes) and this killed the link.

Today Walsjaper threw mostly off speed pitches and little to know adjustments made. Dalton kept getting jammed she never adjusted to get on the ball. I'm no coach by any means but those are common things for hitters.
    Went back and found the announcement from the university about his hiring to update you.

    https://ragincajuns.com/news/2017/11...?path=softball

    The Crab Orchard, Illinois, native has raised the level of offensive production of each team he's been associated with since his collegiate coaching career began. He coached at Georgia from 2009-2014 and at Texas A&M from 2015-2017.

    Glasco helped Georgia to a 282-92 mark as the team hovered near the top of the NCAA and SEC rankings in almost all offensive categories and set over 20 team offensive records during his six-year stay. The Bulldogs belted 85 home runs his first season (up from 26 the previous season) and later led the SEC in home runs during his final two seasons.

    Georgia captured the program's first SEC Tournament championship (2014) and twice reached the final four of the Women's College World Series with Glasco on staff.

    In three seasons at Texas A&M, Glasco restructured the offense and helped guide the Aggies' rise to the top of the SEC, culminating with a third-place finish in 2017. His clubs tallied 465 extra-base hits, including 213 home runs, and scored 6.1 runs per game. In his final two seasons, the Aggies were the SEC's home run leaders in regular season conference play.

    Eight offensive records were broken under Glasco's watch at Texas A&M, highlighted by the 2016 season when the Aggies broke school records for runs scored (429); on base percentage (.437); RBI (401); total bases (852); and OPS (.988).

    Thanks, CajunAmos,

    I was actually doing this by hand from the respective teams' website to respond and I concur with the figures in your post.

    In response to CajunCountry's request if anyone had heard about Glasgo, Dr. Maggard did his due diligence and received high recommendations from SEC coaches, many of whom had ties to Louisiana and would not risk their reputation on supporting less than a highly competent coach.

    Glasco just spoke about the power hitting aspect in his press conference. I know a lot have been concerned about the power hitting. He basically explained that trying to teach the power hitting swing/approach in-season just isn't the best way to go. They had to prioritize what they could do in such a short time. Instead, they focused on competing every day and working on hitting the ball both ways and being very aggressive on the base paths. He said that will be a big change once they get into fall. That's when they'll get the power swing and teaching those mechanics down.

    I expect to see a significant improvement in that aspect next season, especially when you look at his track record.

    I think she was consulted about possible candidates. I remember Coach Glasco saying that Alyson called him up personally.

    OMG, we actually hired a coach with Associate Head Coaching experience at two SEC schools that led the conference in hitting, and people on here are questioning his ability to coach hitting. I believe the majority on this board knew exactly what he was doing and why. I agree with him that you don't teach hitting in-season, but you can emphasize defense (not Lotief's strong suit, per D.J. in an interview at Oregon that most of practices were about hitting) and pitching. He really needs to improve on this season - wait, that would mean he would have to get to the Super Regionals.

    The only downside I see on Glasceaux is that I believe he genuinely cares about what the fans think. I know he talks about how impressed with the fandom here at every opportunity. I would not be surprised if he did not take a peek on this board every now and then just to take the pulse of us fans.

    I think Glasco is the new trend of UL coaches where their expectations are greater than anyone that came before them. Glasco said in his interview he was not happy with just making the postseason at minimum winning a regional every year... We will likely see the same mindset with Napier hold on Guys & Girls its going to get fun

    I saw what Glasco had to say yesterday and was reminded of March, 2012. Baseball hired a guy named Matt Deggs who had an interesting philosophy when it came to hitting.

    We didn't make the conference tournament that year.

    But there was a comment he hadn't really put in his hitting system and that would happen in the fall.

    Then 2013 came and we were in a regional final. 2014 we were a national seed.

    Buckle up, folks. This is gonna get real fun, real soon.
