Followed online. The ladies came back inning after inning but just couldn't in the end. Seemed like a great game...
Really squandering a chance for legitimate wins this weekend.
The ladies went 0-4 last weekend. Wednesday home game vs Bama was postponed.

In Starkville, this weekend.

Beat Alcorn State late yesterday afternoon, 6-0
Lost to miss state last night, 16-6
After such a great opening weekend, including giving then #1 Washington all they could handle, I had high hopes for softball this season. It seems my high expectations were misguided. Maybe they'll get it together for conference play.

Some chances for quality wins this week. We play UNA (12-6) mid-week. We play Colgate (10-5) twice & Jacksonville (13-7) in the UAB Tournament this weekend.
Does anyone know when the RPI numbers are updated for softball? I'm anxious to see where they sit. They're 10-10 overall but it's been a pretty good schedule so far.

They were 8-12 at this point last year, and it was against a weaker schedule.

The schedule was the toughest I've ever seen them play in the pre conference.

Money sports take notes....
Just beat UNA at their place 4-2.
Softball finishes #60 in RPI - that's a heck of a jump from last year's #154 finish. RPI rankings have them as #3 in the conference.
