Good luck to the softball team this weekend!  The team is off to their best start ever.  

Who are the teams that they are expected to beat this weekend, and who will be tough?    I've been pretty good at predicting wins-losses going into a weekend so far, but this weekend I have not had a chance to look closely.

They are playing Coastal Carolina,  Northern Kentucky and UConn.   Last week they played Auburn and James Madison, both top ranked teams.

UND swept future conference mate SDSU today at Apollo. They are predicted to finish middle of the pack in the league.

Dear UND Softball, 

Congratulations. You survived last week. 

Frankly, that means nothing. Yes. Nothing. Performance matters. If you are dregs of whichever league you may reside in, at some point you'll be examined. 

Yes, frank, harsh, direct. But do not sit back and think "you've made it". You've made nothing other than a trip closer to the harsh spotlight. 

Tough to hear, but still good advice.

So where did this come from?

Did Softball come out and say something about the cuts?

I'm saying now is not the time to relax.
Now is the time to thrive.
It's good advice. 

I'm sure they have no intentions of relaxing.  They were quite aware in the fall when their team was potentially on the chopping block.  I wouldn't think any team would lay on their laurels considering all that has happened these last few months.  Good advice for all teams.

Its nice to see Softball making some strides over the past couple of years, they already matched their win totals from last year.  It would be nice to see them make the conference tournament this year and make a little noise.

Still a pretty young team it appears, bright future for sure.

With their remaining schedule they have a great shot at the conference tourney.  All teams within 2 games of each other.
