      This is great news! Softball was non existent before Walton.

      Excellent news.

      I guess this means he'll be around to coach that sixth grader that's committed to play for him.

          Enough to keep him at UF for 10 more years. Whatever it took is OK by me. .829 winning percentage at the level of competition they play is incredible.

            During one of the regional games they had someone saying that Texas was after Walton and would UF keep him?

            Probably his agent.

              UF has plenty money. It's not a zero sum game.

                        I understand the it's not a revenue sport argument, but I love Gator softball. It's my second favorite sport, the #1 women's sport in the country and I'm stoked about signing Walton long term.

                          You are not far off, but the NCAA just passed a new rule the says no contact till their junior year. That should help with girls not developing like you anticipate, for instance Lugo was the #1 pitcher in the country as a 15 year old when Walton took her commitment, but stopped growing and was barely top 20 by her senior year.

                          That is a good question. I'd like to hear someone..not named Foley..explain it to us so we could understand.

                          Spanking me won't be a deterrent.

                          I don't really care what they do with softball. I just wish we'd spend football money on football instead of pocketing 80 million of it every year and pleading poverty. Our Athletic Department is the Cincinnati Reds of college football.

                          We're the ONLY university to finish in the Top 10 of the Directors Cup Ranking for the best all-around athletic department every year since it began. And we totally dominate the SEC All-Sports trophy, winning it virtually every year. Just because the football program has had a few down years due to bad coaching hires, doesn't negate the absolute success of the overall athletic department and the student/athletes who out in the time and effort to be successful in their sports. I understand that football is the money machine that drives it all, but UF is at the forefront of promoting and achieveing champions in ALL sports. And as a lifetime Gator, that makes me very proud.
