Virginia Tech Hosts UF Gators in 2022 NCAA Softball Super-Regional, By The Numbers

Others are more on top of this then I, but thought I'd get some team stats online to see what they say. Here we go:

Records VT UF
Overall 45-8 46-16
Home 16-3 24-11
Away 19-5 16-5
Neutral 10-0 6-0
Conference 21-2 13-11

51-100 19-1 3-1
101-200 3-0 10-1
201+ 3-0 9-0

Quick summary of what stands out to me:
UF had 35 games at home vs 21 away. For VT only 19 home and 24 away. Wow, big edge to VT w super regional in Blacksburg.
Conference record, and with VT with more away games and SOS strength, this seems big advantage to VT.
RPI and SOS # deltas are huge. Advantage VT.
RPI opponents shows UF played way more teams with RPI greater than 100.
Its science, VT will win!!!

So it's not just the football team that doesn't like to leave the state

Looks like the baseball team follows the SEC football scheduling guidelines for out of conference matchups....soft, marshmallowy, and at home.

Take the shortest route to the ball and arrive in bad humor.

They are fast, don't hit as many long balls as UK. Odds are they'll be aggressive trying to steal, Mack will be a pivotal part of this series I think.

Let’s go……

Based on this comment I went and looked at UF vs UK head to head games
They played each other one game, @ Kentucky. UF won 9-4.
So, there isn't much to go from there.

Pain is Temporary, Chicks Dig Scars
Glory is Forever, Let's Go Hokies!!

Think the top of the order based on BA is slightly less than UK's top of the order. You had several girls over .400. UF doesn't have anyone batting @ or over that. UF and KU only met once in the SEC tournament this year. So, not much to go off on that either. Bats gotta get started early, pitching has to be as good as it has been, and we score more runs than them. Problem solved. Will be a tough series I'm sure. But these girls will be ready. Excited for this series.

Let’s go……

Please.

Edit: As in please win. Forever.

Go Hokies!

As someone who doesn't normally pay attention to college softball/baseball, what is the reason that UF played 9 more games than us?

VT '17

Weather mostly, VT had 6 games cancelled due to weather or teams ducking us.

What these stats don't capture is the umps ducking us with illegal pitch calls...

Warning: this post occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors)..

Ehhhhh...from what I have seen and know about softball, which is admittedly not a ton, we should consider ourselves lucky that the umps don't call us on illegal pitches more than they do, especially on Lemley. That foot that's dragging isn't allowed to leave the ground, it's called a crow hop. She starts with it on the mound, hops, then drags, and that hop is what makes it an illegal pitch and she does it every time. But in the spirit of orange and maroon glasses: Screw the umps! Those guys suck!

Source: I have a sister that was a pitcher for travel ball and she pointed it out to me.

The thing is that nearly every pitcher does it. We certainly seem to get called on it a lot more. I mean look at the pitch on Ritters HR just further down the thread her drag foot isn't even close to the ground. Its BS college only rule that's not consistently called

UF pitcher already 60 pitches through 2 innings. I'm no expert, but that feels like a lot.

It is, but for softball it is much different than baseball with pitch counts. Still a fatigue factor as the game goes on though.

Gotcha. But I'd like to think our batters getting long at bats can start to mess with the pitcher's confidence?

If we keep smacking it, the pitcher will get shaken and pulled.

"I'm too drunk to taste this chicken" - Colonel Sanders via Ricky Bobby

Eh, for softball pitch counts are way different. Its a lot, but keep in mind you could throw a ball underhand literally 1000 times a day and cause no physical wear and tear like a regular baseball pitching motion does. Its more about the fatigue of throwing

It hit her fucking foot!!!!!

I'm guessing they're saying the ball in her right hand was out of the glove (left hand) when the glove made contact with her foot., or it at least was close enough to not overturn.

Big double play. Helps us keep all the momentum.

Warning: this post occasionally contains strong language (which may be unsuitable for children), unusual humor (which may be unsuitable for adults), and advanced mathematics (which may be unsuitable for liberal-arts majors)..

But if the home team is winning they do not need to play the bottom of the 5th and hence would be considered 5 full innings if we had made it through the top of 5 with the lead.

Edit Add on: Much like you wouldn't play bottom 7 if winning and it would still be considered a full 7 inning game.

Fair point. Have a leg

Game tracker says they have finished 5 . I imagine they will resume play.

From the way the announcers were talking, the game resumes where we left, whenever the rain delay is over.

There is no declaration of a no contest for postseason games, at least thats the sense I got from the broadcast team.

Looks like rain won't be over until 8pm?

The Hokies looked good in absolutely every facet of the game. That moment in the bottom of the 5th (or whatever inning it was) where we had bases loaded with one out and hit into a double play wasn't the worst way we've left runners stranded. The ball was hit very well (hard liner) to the SS and almost made it over her head. She just made a very quick play as she caught the ball and gunned it to first.

And before we blame the runner, just remember the field is very short so softball players are forced to get big, quick jumps which can sometimes leave them stranded as they are trying to advance.

Additionally, the girls were very disciplined at the plate and forced the UF pitcher to throw them good pitches. This is the team that can win it all.

The illegal pitch calls are adding up fast already.

Lemley's got to figure that out. Like, I get it's been called inconsistently, but it's so clearly an illegal pitch. Like, she can't possibly do it for four years, right?

I was afraid of that. Any inning / score update?

I don't get the concept of the illegal pitch to begin with.

But as far as how inconsistent they are with those calls...I feel like I'm taking crazy pills! It's the same pitch!

I'm confused as to how this hasn't been corrected by the pitching coach this late in the season. Did they just start calling this illegal in the tourney? If not, they've been calling it all year and she's still doing it. Glad she's on our side though

Difficult to fix during the season. However, I would love to know how much they worked on it before the season began. It's so glaringly obvious on every pitch, I can't imagine it wasn't an issue pre-season.

Is coronavirus over yet?

That's an inexcusable at bat by Bailey. Sorry, but you can't watch two pitches go by that the umpire has already let you know they will call strikes.

And then commit interference like that. Really terrible honestly.

Putting it out there, when Lemley hits 71 mph, it's equivalent to a 100 mph fastball in baseball as far as reaction time is concerned.

Game 2 is quickly unraveling due to late game pitching

This is my school
This is home

5th inning should be over with Florida up by one at best. They ignored an interference by the florida runner on the shortstop and that runner ultimately scored.

My wife takes the kids and leaves the house while I watch my Hokie games.........nuff said

I mean, the runner was in the basepath, and the pitcher made the play to 1st regardless. Seemed like a no harm no foul scenario.

Not interference. The shortstop was not even the fielder that made the play. The runner is allowed to be in the base path and moving on contact, especially with the ball on the ground.

I want us to win, but that was not interference

Anyone else feel like the coach is giving up on this game and playing for game three?

Honestly saving Keely there is the right call. They have no shot to win game 3 without her.

Throwing the game to save for game 3 is why winning game 1 was so important.

As great as the girls were at the plate yesterday they were just as equally undisciplined today. Hopefully they can get the mojo back tomorrow!

I didn't understand the move with Rochard. I thought they might go to her up 2-1 to try to close out the game, but not when you've already lost the lead. That's a desperation move you make in the rubber game.

Unless it's a game that has an hour long lead-in show, like College Gameday, Sunday Night Baseball, or Monday Night football, this happens with almost every game on networks that show multiple games. Especially on weekends.

I will never understand why Bennett feels like she has the right to the ball in left field. This isn't the first time this has happened this season.

Why didn't she bail when LF called her off.

That followed up a throwing error. She better punch a couple of dingers to make up for this.

I'm so baffled by this. Learning to call it is a thing they teach when you are 7.

First time this season a team has scored double digits against this team. And UF has done it in 3 innings. Errors piled up, but only one of those ten are unearned. UF just hitting the ball and being aggressive on the base paths.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Terrible pitching, non-existent defense, and players scared to swing the bat on offense. So basically, we weren't good at softball by any definition you want to use

I wouldn't say "terrible pitching". Rochard simply didn't have movement today; the umpire has been VERY inconsistent on that low strike call; and UF simply ended up getting the pitches they wanted.

But we are back to our late/post-season ways at the plate.

Is coronavirus over yet?

Sadly our at-bats have been a decent tragedy. Every batter has gone deep (55 pitches). That would lead to a lot of hits late once she wears downs. Our D just crapped the bed and made that moot point.

Great season, very shitty ending to it

I mean in no uncertain terms, absolute choke job. Literally the 2nd or 3rd best team in the country and they melt down to this extent to not even make it out of the Super Regional?

Hate to say it, but for a roster this good to not make it to OKC is a failure.

This is my school
This is home

Well, unless some sort of miracle happens the season is over. Really unfortunate to get outscored so badly in the last two games of a regional you are hosting (something like 17-2 up to this point).

Coach D'amour and crew are doing a really good job recruiting and building a team for the grind of a season. However, for reasons I can't put my finger on atm, his teams tend to struggle/lose a little steam late in the season and into post season play.

Again, really unfortunate way to end the season, especially at home (absolutely no fight at all the last two games), but otherwise things are looking up for this program!

EDIT: Outscored 18-2 in two games.

We're really about to get run-ruled in an elimination home game to go to the College World Series. There are no words for how bad this game was
