  1. Last time AU beat LSU in Baton Rouge...

    I was 12 and in 7th grade. It's time to get a win in Red Stick. ETA: Let's beat the Rebels this week first!
  2. Gerry teaches his hitters to be aggressive. The UGA teams in '09, '10, and '11 that he was on staff for could smash (think of a stacked lineup like the Carosone, Cooper, Rhodes lineups we had). Our hitters probably won't draw as many walks as they used to, but look for them to have the potential to crush pitches outside the zone.
  3. Auburn/Mizzou will kick off at either 6:00 or 6:30 CT on ESPN2/ESPNU/SEC Network. http://www.secsports.com/article/20669769/sec-football-tv-schedule-games-september-23
  4. Carlee Wallace granted release

    She also played 3rd.
  5. Best AU Tight End ever?

    There should be more mentions of Cooper Wallace.
  6. I'm hoping it isn't an 11:00am scorcher.
  7. This makes 4 AU players in the pros, spread across 4 of the 5 teams. http://www.auburntigers.com/sports/w-softbl/spec-rel/053117aaa.html
  8. One interesting thing to me is that Cooper did have a hit Thursday against Kentucky. I wonder if she tried everything out, but saw that it was hurting/she needs more recovery time and decided to take it easy/decoy against LSU. At the banquet Sunday, Clint mentioned that Casey Myers was throwing to Coop on Sunday.
  9. SEC Softball Tournament

    LSU lit Swindle up in game 2 after Martin was pulled. If we win the semi final (no matter what day it is played), I think it is safe to assume Carlson and Martin will get one start each. The order of the 2 is anyone’s guess.
  10. Softball vs. Georgia State

    I agree with how she is struggling, but these struggles began when SEC play started against LSU and Florida, not just since he resigned. "Pre-season Makayla" would've shut Ga State out like she did a very good BYU team, etc. Makayla looked dominant at times last year, but also had her struggles as a freshman. However, we don't have lefty Rachael Walters to relieve when she struggles, and we have to keep Kaylee fresh for her Friday/Sunday starts.
  11. Yes, the coaching staff has done an excellent job. We have lost some world class hitters the past few seasons. Branndi Melero and Morgan Estell in 2015 and Carosone, Howard, and Rhodes in 2016. It's hard for younger players to try and fill those shoes, but last year, Vic Draper, Madi Gipson, and Whit Jordan did enough. Cooper coming back to form and the emergence of Rivera could really help coming down the stretch. I just hope our 2 pitcher rotation continues to hold up. Carlson and Martin have done an excellent job of carrying this team all year as the coaches are trying to get the offense and defense where it needs to be.
  12. Softball vs. Georgia - game 2

    I'll take a win of any variety tomorrow. Sweeps are hard to come by in the SEC.
  13. The automatic bid is given to the conference tournament winner from the SEC (some conferences like the Pac 12 do not have a conference tournament). Several at large bids will be given from the SEC. 12 or possibly all 13 teams will go dancing in softball this year (All are in good shape but a Miss State, Ole Miss, or South Carolina could fall off because the conference is so brutal).
  14. Rpi is released midday each Monday and only includes the weekend, not Monday. Rpi is a tool used by the selection committee for seeding. The polls, while fun to look at, are only an opinion. I'm sure the selection committee knows who's ranked what in each poll, but ultimately it's rpi that matters. Edited to add: The rpi has us at 27-5, and we improved to 28-5 after Monday's win. Also, the rpi is weighted to give bonus for road wins and penalize home losses, meaning Monday's win will be nice when next week's rpi is tabulated (wins in Athens will also be nice). An online forum called Ultimate College Softball has a thread called "RPI 101" if any of you would like to know more: http://robocoach.websitetoolbox.com/post/rpi-101-8446242?&trail=30
  15. WOW! AU Women make NCAA Tourney

    I'll take it. Let's beat the NC State Wolfpack. War Eagle!
