  1. IMO - #13 needs to be retired effective immediately. Lest we forget - from her WikiPedia bio - Kasey Marie Cooper (born April 7, 1995) is an American softball player and third baseman, originally from Dothan, Alabama. Cooper played college ball at Auburn University, in which entering her senior season holds almost every offensive record for the Tigers. Cooper also plays for the United States women's national softball team, and won a gold medal with the team at the 2016 Women's Softball World Championship and a Silver Medal at the 2016 World Cup of Softball. (link to the rest - and she was named the espnW player of the year. It will be a very long time before AU sees another player of her caliber.
  2. According to this article in Softball America Emily may not be with the Tigers the entire year. "Now that Italy's ticket is punched for Tokyo, Carosone is determined to continue to improve her game and ready herself for international softball's biggest stage next summer. Until then, her plan is to return to Italy in the months following the conclusion of the NPF season to continue to train with her national team, before returning to the United States to play in the NPF for the start of the 2020 campaign. Then, she will be off to Tokyo for the Olympics."

  4. Suspect this is why the bleachers have been removed: Project Overview: This project will construct a one-story, approximately 10,000 square foot facility along the first base line to include an indoor infield, player restrooms, and retractable nets for batting tunnels when the infield is not in use.
  5. Just a reminder - athletics doesn't get it's funding from the state.
  6. Take it with a grain of salt for heaven's sake - it's on and you have no way to know if the quotes are legit or have been paraphrased to make Coach Dean look bad. There are good things and bad things about the portal that the NCAA needs to clean up. Remember, just because a student athlete enters the portal it doesn't mean that they will get an offer to transfer to another school...if they don't do we want at Auburn? The flip side is - Coach gets to look for good players who have made a life changing decision and who may fill a need for Auburn.
  7. Well - good recruiting class coming in, maybe that will help. KK Dismukes......
  8. I'm wondering who the other coach is for the Eagles given the fact that the Chinese team didn't end up training in Opelika.....
  9. Based on what I saw Friday night and Sunday - Coach pretty much hit the nail on the head in his comments. We don't have Mak and may not which means our pitchers need defensive and offensive support. The team is better than they played this past weekend and now it will need to be their "A" game for the rest of the season.
  10. If you are unhappy with the lack of coverage please be sure to let AD Greene know about it....I've been badgering him. His email address is and his Twitter account is @AGreeneIV
  11. Not on SEC+ because there was gymnastics and baseball. Story I got from AD Green was camera crews and bandwidth. If you are as unhappy as I am that the team isn't getting full coverage please send him an email - or let him know on Twitter. @AGreeneIV
