    ISU Softball

    Isn't it time for the coaches to give up on Cali and TX recruits for sb and start winning some games??? Recruit the midwest and local players! Maybe time for change? Or who cares?

    I care. About time we get a program that doesn't consistently get blown out of games. And they're only getting worse.

    Agreed. From my understanding we didn't even look at the Darrah girl. Complete miss on her and Thomas.

    Iowa didn't look at Cassandra either. I was tickled to death when She out-pitched both of Iowa's pitchers last weekend, throwing three complete games (won two, and was undone by poor defense in the loss). How can all the in-state schools have missed on these two?

    Hard for us to compete in B12 no matter who we get. Even with new facilities, we are still behind many in conference (no idea about new conference mates, haven't seen their facilities). Weather works against us. Need indoor training facility for off-season if we want to finish in top half. But hard to justify the financial committment needed with so many obstacles in our way.

    You are correct, didn't recruit either of them. There are lots of very good softball players in the state of Iowa, seems like this staff doesn't pursue them very hard.

    Re: ISU Softball

    Head coach is a joke. The lack of communication is terrible. Kids have zero guidance and their practices aren't structured. Never seen such horrid defense in my life either.

    No doubt she needs to quit recruiting the leftovers of the leftovers in California and start recruiting more Midwest

    correct, I got to watch them practice a couple times and it wasn't very serious (going through the motions, etc.)

    Re: ISU Softball

    Our two most productive hitters are from California. (Miller,Torescano) The major problem is lack of quality pitching. This coach has not shown she can recruit decent pitching. Until that changes ISU will not be any good. End of story.

    Re: ISU Softball

    I've been following the team for 10 years now - used to think it was Coach Crowe, who was the problem. Current coach hasn't brought any more success. It's easy to blame the climate on our problems, but northern teams have had success. e.g. Michigan, DePaul, and (yuck) Iowa. The one thing about the current staff has been consistently lousy pitching. Oh well, I'll keep hoping for better days ahead.

    They did recruit Chelsea. ISU offered a 75% scholarship. But that was even after they knew Mizzou had offered a full ride.

    The new facilities will be a big upgrade and may help recruiting a bit.
