Crawl, walk, run, KA&TN. Takes a little time, but Bev's got a great staff & they're gonna get us there. Got our sea-legs under us now. Gonna be fun watchin' this team grow up.

Bev, pls do an old Gamecock a favor & tell the girls how they view time is the key to life. Tell them to quit thinking of time as an unbroken line of past, present and future like they've been taught.

Ask them to embrace the thought that time is but a point-a series of points, decision points, that combined determine what they accomplish & who they become.

Teach them to recognize & embrace those points & give their all to each one for only then will they be able to live their lives with NO REGRETS.

Indeed, you might want to explore this subject a little more with Dawn. Somehow someway she came to this understanding as a young girl, and in retrospect I think it may be what has made her so special. Tho Dawn may not even realize it, she's always teaching her team team to shine in their moments just like she always has & live life with no regrets.

Gotta admit I'm being a little selfish tho. Once your team buys into this, I can watch Lady G's kick ass & take names(KA&TN) from Nov 'til Summer.

Wife and I only had boys, so I guess I'm adopting yours & Dawn's girls. Hope you & they don't mind.

I hope with the new stadium renovations they will change the camera setup to be more like the one we have for baseball. The camera sitting behind home plate with the net in the way kind of sucks.

Can anyone give a season outlook for our team this year? I enjoyed watching them make their postseason run last season, but admittedly am not able to follow them as closely as some of the other sports. Are we looking at another NCAA tourney appearance this year for this team?

I'll be watching online today. Go Cocks!

Looks like we've got a young flamer on the mound. Like the Blue heater.

For those asking wanting updates: 0-0 through 2. Iowa had a leadoff double in the 1st but we retired the next 3 batters. Gamecocks haven't threatened much on offense yet. Freshman pitcher on the mound for SC looks impressive and has a really good-looking fastball.

Re: Opening day for softball .
 
No score thru 3. Blue may be a touch nervous on the mound with this being her first college start, but she's looking pretty good so far. D's helping her out a little, but we need to get the bats going.

Re: Opening day for softball .
 
Looks like we have a good mix of newcomers & vets.
Frosh Kaylea Snaer parks a solo over the left field fence & frosh Nikki Blue gets the W while 'Old Faithful' Julie Sarratt gets the Save in relief.
1-0 Cocks. WTG, Ladies.


PS: Julie, sorry I called you Old Faithful, but I'm not gonna lie. That's what you were.

We worked out of a huge jam in the top of the 6th after back to back errors by the 3rd baseman

I thought Julie Sarratt really closed the deal in the 7th (after the defense helped her into and out of a jam in the 6th) . Julie gave up some home runs in the fall and I heard it was because she was trying to develop a rise ball . She might have it figured out . She certainly had Iowa hitters chasing some high pitches .

The game-winning homer , at point of contact (courtesy of The State) . This is how you handle an inside pitch .

Sarah Mooney . She also hit 17 home runs last year for James Madison , and was named player of the year in their conference .

Is Brad not calling the first game today? I am not getting any of the play by play on the gamecockonline feed?
