Missouri whooped UCLA in game 3 of the Super Regionals 9-1. Way to go Tigers! Already got my tix for Hall of Fame stadium this weekend. I hope to see Mizzou play!
CB,Coach Earleywine is a fantastic coach. He was also an outstanding player. He really knows the game and can motivate his players. My dd was fortunate to be a "demonstrator" at the National Coaches Clinic and so was selected to work with Coach Earleywine demonstrating some drills.
The question for many is whether he can now make Mizzou a "Power" given his young pitching staff, several key young starters, AND some outstanding incoming recruits. It's going to be a lot of fun watching.
You should have seen them play last night. Took my dd to watch the home double-header against KU. Two errors in the first game, gave KU an early lead. But then MU brought out the big sticks, and put them down in great fashion. Downright smoked them in the second game.They're not down and out, by any means. The pitching last night was very good.I got to watch them play over the weekend at home. They got spanked by a lesser team, twice. I know their ace is out with a stress fracture on her throwing wrist but that was absolutely ridiculous. That team is way too good to play that way. They didn't make many real errors, just several mental mistakes like taking a throw at 1st for an out and then forgetting about the runner on third and letting her score. Tiger pitching was still pretty decent. They had a few issues trying to hit the corner on a slapper but they did force a lot of pop ups and high fly balls. Those should have been automatic outs but the outfield seemed to be sluggish.
I know coach will get them back to the level they are accustomed to, but wow. Just because a star player goes down is no reason for the team to go down!
Just keepin' it real...
