is there such a thing as an etsy genuis? if so, this is it.
Vote for M-Softball's Sierra Romo for Premier Player
Once for our lovely OP (who gets my vote any day!), and twice for Romo (once on my PC and once on my phone).
Let's get the vote going for Romo, she's moved up to 2nd place but trails the Bearded one by a wide margin.
Need to get others going. She is far behind Beard from South Alabama right now. Michigan has to be able to beat out South Alabama.
Michigan softball also picked up Alex Sobczak from Farmington Hills Mercy . Sounds like she's a monster hitter in the same mold as Romero.
DetNews just ran an article on her: Michigan-bound Alex Sobczak is Mercy's super slugger -- when she gets strikes. She's in the 2015 class. She must be pretty good to be getting a 75-percent scholarship.
She's right there with Chiddy as the best offensive prospect to come out of Michigan in at least fifteen years. I've said on here before that I'm just as excited about her coming in as I was about Romo, but we should probably tap the brakes on the hype machine. Romo grew up playing against the top competition in the country and has surpassed my expectations to become perhaps the best to ever play for Michigan. That said, I think Sobczak has all the tools and I can't wait to see what she can do at the college level.
It's also worth noting that two other 2015 players committed to Michigan, Natalie Peters and Faith Canfield, are also total freaking studs. I would say all three are surefire four year starters, but the only non-pitching regular Michigan loses for 2016 is Lauren Sweet. And, quite honestly, I still think they will be four year starters anyway. Romo will be a Senior when this class comes in, and it will be the deepest and most talented team Michigan has ever had.
Someone tell me she one name of the year at some point
Done and done. Glad to help out a fellow Wolverine!
As of 7:40 AM EDT, Romero is tied for second at 21% with Ally Carda of UCLA. Right now, the most intriguing name on sound alone - Farish Beard - is way ahead with 43%, so hopefully we can get that "corrected", if you will.
I know that most people are more mature than I am, but if you google Ms. Beard you can probably figure out why she is so popular.
Goes into July. Seems like with some perseverance, we can close the gap.
says the winner will be announced in early July, but that the vote ends on June 15th. With the current gap being 42% to 21%, we'll need a lot of votes for Romo to catch up. Voting 2x will help, but we'll need a lot more than that to push Sierra to the top.
dammit. we have more firepower.
I highly recommend it.
Romero is up to 23% now. Get those votes in!
Thanks MGBM for this. Romo is at 24% now but is not likely to beat the lovely Ms. Beard. Wow.
