  1. Don’t be too surprised that we start seeing some girls left. I know that Justis and her family are not too happy. She questioned Coach Dean about the play when he had to steal home and she was called out and after she talked with him, she has been sitting on the bench ever since. Not sure if Martin will stay, she has definitely not been herself for the last month or so. I was sad to see her sitting over there on the bench by herself. Hitting has definitely gone down the tubes. It is indeed sad for these girls, especially the seniors. We were so high and going so far and then this year we are done. I wonder if Dean is not in over his head in the SEC. We have had season tickets for the last three years and wow, this is so different this year. He really never interacts with the fans at all and the banquet was definitely different. Oh well, girls—take a break and let all of this just be over and rest some. I hope that we can see this turn around. We had a program that brought great pride and joy to the auburn family. Here’s hoping
  2. I fell really bad for these girls, everything has been turned upside down. Dean came in and tried to totally erase everything that they had accomplished. That says a lot. He made athletics take down the flags at the front for their wins in SEC and going to World Series! Really. I have never missed a game in the last three years at home. You can really read body language from our girls, they are not the fun-loving happy team that they once were. The standings were never posted this year, I am totally mad at Myers but he instilled in them that they could reach for the moon. Dean’s idea that defense and pitching wins obviously hasn’t seen how it goes in SEC!!! Only game that I know where love scores win is in golf. Justis is probably never going to get out of doghouse and he sends her in with no chance of success. I won’t be surprised to see her bolt, with maybe some more. They play tentative because they know that he will bench them in a heartbeat. Sad indeed, we had come so far. We will see how next year goes, but this batting coach needs to go but won’t , he came because he promised to bring three players here next year. I will be there cheering them on because that is who I am but this is hard to watch for sure. Our stats show how far we have fallen.
  3. We all received a letter from him today through the secretary. It was an interesting letter. I think that he would have been better served to leave out a few things that he said. He said that he knew that he wasn’t the first choice and that he wanted to win people over but if not he was still going to work hard. I think for your first introduction to former swimmers and families. If he wins and brings the program back to the elite status that it once had, people will definitely be behind him. I was just struck by a few statements that might have been left unsaid at this time. We are all behind you Gary, just show us what you can do and we will all join you at Toomers! WAR EAGLE
  4. No, David was never contacted and yes, he was very interested.
  5. Well, Dave Durbin is not coming to Auburn, he just signed a three year extension with CA. We need to get rolling on this and get a great coach to bring this program back to life.
  6. Just saw that the University of FL swim coach is retiring. We need to get rolling on this. We need to get our program back to the Elite Status that it once had!! FL will spend $$$ to get a good coach and I bet that they are already working at it.
  7. David Mines is in charge of the search. You can call and leave a message 334-844-9141. Several people have done that. I am concerned that Mines is a holdover from Jay and we all know how Jay felt about David. As of today, no one has contacted David. This is Allen’s chance to make a great hire. I know for a fact that David wants to return to AU.
  8. I have heard from someone directly that our AD has not even reached out to David. I am somewhat surprised. He would return to AU and had hoped that this would happen. His daughter will be a freshman here in the fall. Interesting. This seems like it is taking a long time, not sure why. We need someone in place soon. Recruiting is so important.
  9. Sorry, not buying that this is just "boys being boys" junk. My son was an athlete, he was an Auburn representative and definitely would have been thrilled with a full scholarship, as would many students who are struggling to even go to college!! If this is the standard for this time, then no wonder we look like a middle school group out there! My son was busy training twice a day, going to class and representing Auburn and doing what was necessary for his swim team. Gus has no control, has no leadership, puts no fear into these players and it shows on and off the field. They play like a bunch of slackers. All of us pay way too much money, sit is horrible seats, and try weekly to sit through this stuff!Enough is enough Sean needs to be kicked to the curb, Gus and Jay need to join him there.,
  10. Good Morning All, The A Day tickets are now available online for purchase. Just go to www.auburntigers.com and do the ordering tickets tab. They will mail you the tickets. We need the entire stadium FULL! Time to get the GUS BUS rolling!!!! War Eagle! Pray for our swim team, they are competing at SEC's this week and I am fearful that this could be the year that our SEC men's streak ends-FL right on our tails right now! GO SWIMMERS!
  11. I think that he was one of the young men at dinner with ole TT when he bolted and left them all sitting there! Wow, Tommy, you are definitely a class act!!! Happy that we have Gus back! Think that great things are going to happen at Auburn!!!
  12. Actually, I have a different feeling after watching this entire season. Here is my open letter to our players: Dear Players, You have been given a rare gift, a FULL ride, through college that most kids would die for. You might have been the big stud in high school, but you have now moved to a totally different level!! I suggest that IF you want to play football at Auburn, you get off your duff and you work really hard to make that happen! IF you do like to work hard, follow the rules, be a team player, and be a part of the Auburn program, PLEASE turn in your uniform and let someone who really wants a shot at playing, at getting a college education, and being a part of the wonderful Auburn experience take your spot! You have let your teammates, your coaches, and all of the fans who spend tons of money and tons of time on you! Get over yourselves and MOVE ON! Give me that THREE star players any day of the week! They know that they have to work hard to accomplish their goals! My son was a swimmer for AU and worked his tail off! I would have been thrilled if he had gotten a full ride. Never happens for most of the swimmers! WAR EAGLE and I probably will NOT go to Tiger Walk this week. Enough already!
  13. I challenge all of you going to the game to join me at Tiger Walk. I never miss it. We need the biggest crowd ever today. As I have told others, negative energy only begets more negative energy. I choose to be positive, to stand with the team, the coaches, and Auburn. Do you???? I was at the rally on Thursday, the team and coaches really appreciated the support! I am sick of all of the calling out of our coaches and our team! This accomplishes nothing at this point in time. See you at Tiger Walk. Be loud and be proud tonight. WAR EAGLE
  14. I have two tickets in Auburn section , Section A, Row 63, seats 15 & 16. I live in the Auburn area, or you can call me at 334-257-4611. Email me at mamachaki@hotmail.com Seats were $50.00 each, I would probably take less since we now can't go.
  15. Seriously people, no one is more sad or disappointed than I am about our first two games, but all of this negative, ugly comments simply needs to stop now. I have read everyone's ranting and raving about everything under the sun. What do you want Coach Chizik to say? Do you want him to rant and rave and swear at the reporters like the guy in the other part of the state? I certainly don't! If you think that we are disappointed, how do you think our coaches and boys feel. Believe me, NO ONE goes out to lose!!!! My son swam and NO ONE felt worse than he did when he didn't live up to his expectations. These boys have not played together and all of this will take a little time and to attack our young QB is ridiculous. How do you think he feels, he is going to lose any confidence that he once had in himself and will never be able to move forward. Life is peaks and valleys and believe me, this group has seen two of their team members shot down and a young man lose his Mother just this week. We need to get behind this team and our coaches. Struggles always seperate the men from the boys. I love Auburn and will be there on Sat for Tiger Walk, cheering on our team, I will be in the stands cheering on the team, and I will be there at the end of the game!!! Where will you be??????
