    I've said this before, but at most schools the percent of STEM majors is really small to begin with and, unfortunately, even smaller for women. Also, my guess is if Keilani Ricketts wanted to major in Physics most schools would have been fine with it..

    Unfortunately, there are very few opportunities for our daughters in softball after college

    Shannon Rhodes signs to go to Texas. Texas girl returns to Texas, and stays with the coaches that recruited her.

    When we went to a camp at Oregon last year, Shannon talked about her relentless emailing of the coaches. "Stalkers get scholarships", as she put it - LOL.

    I'm shocked I tell you. Shocked.

    Thanks, though, as I wouldn't have noticed unless FloSoftball references.

    Cute note on the stalkers and relentless emailing. The process works. Talent is the ultimate factor but in order to get noticed effort on the field and on the keyboard is needed.

    So far, 3 of the 6 transfers out of Oregon have gone to Texas. Mary Iakopo, Madi Bishop, and Alyssa Pinto (a new freshman) have not been announced.

    If Oregon had a roster of all girls from Oregon, then they likely wouldn't leave when a coach does.

    Lauren Burke is not only from Oregon, but is from Eugene. She definitely grew up cheering for the Ducks.

    DILLIGAF - Oregon isn't generally a hotbed of high-level softball talent. If a program is trying to compete at the highest levels, they are going to recruit the best players, no matter where they come from. Same as everyone else...in all sports. Also, Lauren Burke played for Mike White when he was a travel ball coach. Her following Coach White to Texas isn't a big surprise. Likewise with Megan Kleist going to ULL to be with her old coach. Those bonds can be powerful.

    How about an amendment to title ix, if a school charges an out of state student 3 times as much as they charge an instate student, then an out of state athlete should count as 3 scholarships against their allotment.
    All of these out of state players aren't helping O
    oregon anyway, that big O on their helmets is the amount of championships they've won.
    Following your train of logic, should all Portland State players be from Portland? Notre Dame players required to be Catholic? West Point players have to be veterans?

    My first thought was this is crazy. But something must be said about the limited number of local students on a roster. I followed both Oregon and Oregon State last year. Looked like OSU played their California players all the time, and the local grown players played sparingly. If anyone from Oregon has any plans of playing Div 1 softball locally, its Portland State or change your plans. Oregon, and also Washington, do not have the number of in-state options as California; the odds are stacked against Oregon and Washington student athletes. Jane Sanders stadium is packed with little girls who dream of playing there. Too bad that that little girl can be one of the best high schoolers in the state and still get beat out by someone from California, Washington, Utah, Idaho, etc.
