    What happened to Jacqui Switzer (of the UF softball team)? With a quick google search, I learned Brooke Clemens transferred to Florida Gulf Coast, but I can't find any news on Switzer. Did she transfer? She's not listed on the UF softball roster.

    I'm pretty sure she's still enrolled at UF. It might've been her decision to just be a student.

    Anyone close to the program know why Romanello hasn't seen any time? Injury?

    Interesting comments about the pitching;



    From the rule book (10.4.6):

    The pitcher is not allowed to hop or drag to a replant (crowhop), gain a second starting point and push off her pivot foot. Once having lost contact with the pitcher’s plate, the pivot foot may trail on the ground but may not bear weight again until the pitch is released

    Here's a slow motion of a normal drag without bearing weight on the pivot foot:



    The problem as I see it, it's gotta be near impossible to see that slight knee bend live that indicates weight-bearing on the rear foot. If you can't see it, you can't call it. The lifting the pivot foot off the ground is a much easier call.

    Go GATORS!

    I believe the issues were being sick or flu.

    Stephanie Brombacher just started breaking out into hives and she can't figure out why.

    Funny you mentioned this, WES - I watched the Gators last weekend at the USF tourney, and thought Barnhill was clearly lifting her pivot foot and launching herself. It wasn't called, but it concerned me.

    Kelly has always had a crow hop on some of her pitches. Hopefully the umpires in Louisiana don't start calling it this weekend. Just watched Louisiana on TV beating Oregon St. Their new head coach is former Georgia assistant Glascow. Remember him?
