  1. Back to facilities.... I would say Jane B is top 10% in the country but probably 12/13 in the SEC. Would Plainsman Park be 13/14 over Mizzou or dead last? Softball needs an indoor hitting facility, and those temporary bleachers that are out right now need to be replaced with a permanent concrete upper deck level.
  2. Softball America is reporting that Tyler King, an outfielder from ECU, is transferring to Auburn. She has 2 years of eligibility left. https://www.softballamerica.com/stories/ncaa-softball-division-i-transfer-tracker/ https://ecupirates.com/roster.aspx?rp_id=9860
  3. Carmyn Greenwood posted on Instagram that she is playing at Louisville next year with her sister.
  4. The Eagles are basically a development team for the Chinese National Team. The American players are really there to help with development and fill in any holes. I haven’t kept up with the games, but it’s possible AU alum Angel Bunner may pitch as well.
  5. I think Makayla plans to attend grad school at AU. Maybe the thought of playing is something she wants to do instead of being a GA or being done with softball all together. I haven't done the math either, but maybe our extended stay in College Station last week and hopefully a long weekend in Tucson is enough for her to qualify for the medical redshirt. I believe with the regular season she was at 30.1%.
  6. Last year, our RPI was 18 and we got sent to 6 seed FSU. That was actually worse than this year´s seeding. I wish softball followed the S-curve for seeding. It´s more about who can bus in (just look at the Tennessee, Texas, and Northwestern regionals... nothing but teams that can drive in). FSU was the only non-SEC host in the South that we could bus to, but they sent South Carolina there. Arizona needed a 2-seed to fly in as no one else was close so it makes sense.
  7. Yes, with AU making the semis we selected 2 athletes for the all-tourney team (Kentucky also got 2, Bama 3, and Florida 4). Barnhill was very deserving. I knew as soon as UF came back to beat South Carolina without her having to throw, that UF was set up with a fresh Barnhill. Walton gambled that first game, and it paid off. The Gators have to be a top 8 seed now after winning 4 games in 4 days against top notch competition.
  8. Barnhill barely broke a sweat today against LSU. They had one bunt single, and that was it. I would be highly shocked if she doesn’t start against us tomorrow.
  9. We have looked so much more relaxed tonight from the word go. That’s very encouraging.
  10. Rain delay. Florida/South Carolina resume at 6:00 central in the second inning. AU should begin around 8:30ish if there are no more delays.
  11. The weather forecast for College Station does not look good. I hope they can get all 12 tournament games in.
  12. The bracket is out: http://www.secsports.com/bracket/softball We play Mizzou Wednesday at 3:00, with the winner facing Tennessee Thursday. Honestly, with the way we are playing, I don’t like our chances against any SEC team. But, I do like Mizzou and potentially UT better than a pod with Florida, Georgia, Bama, Kentucky, or LSU.
  13. I’m glad Char was recognized. She and Barnhill were both deserving.
  14. The SEC has done co players and pitchers of the week before. In my opinion, Harris’s performance shouldn’t go unrecognized. How either of these do in game 3 could be the deciding factor. I expect Barnhill to start game 3.
  15. Agreed... it would probably take 5 or maybe even more wins to put us back on the host line (we have 7 regular season games plus the SEC tournament left). Baalman pitched game 1. She entered with a 4.05 ERA, and we made her look like Monica Abbott. Baalman and Humes had both been struggling as of late, and we made them both look like Abbott and Osterman tonight. Louisville lit both up on Wednesday. A few weeks ago, Mizzou swept Kentucky in Lexington. I know we are better than what we’ve shown against USC and UK.
