  1. My wife and I barely know a guard from a forward but have watched and attended a few games over the last several years. Our untrained eyes tell us that this team, compared to prior team appear to have better ball handling skills, better shooting and not as careless with fouls. They would likely be even better if Levy was not out for the season. I believe all of the players contributing major minutes will be back next year and be joined by a good recruiting class. I thought we would be at a loss without the departed Unique Thompson, but other players have more than stepped up. Impressed wi
  2. Attended the game. In no way am I an expert regarding basketball, but from the games I have seen this year it appears the players are "buying in" to the way Coach Harris wants them to play. North Florida appears to be a good team. Jazz Bond is very good and scored 15 points. Another player, (#3 Tolbert) had 11 points and both have skills. Tolbert appeared to sprain her ankle during the last 4 or 5 minutes of the game and was out for remainder of the game. Auburn played energetic, aggressive defense. Coulibaly played 39 minutes and had 23 points. She can really drive it to the basket.
  3. I remember vividly when Grimes was the OL coach at AU and during the Tiger Walk as he was going through at gate at the stadium entrance where all the recruits were standing. He apparently recognized one of the recruits (an obvious lineman) and stopped, took off his sunglasses and stepped out of line to have a brief conversation with the young man. I thought at the moment what a way to impress a player. Always liked him.
  4. Played very well against highly ranked Mississippi State. Lost in 3 sets but each decided by 2 points. The game was played in Starkville. Even though a loss, may have been one of our best efforts. https://auburntigers.com/news/2021/11/26/volleyball-tigers-conclude-season-at-no-24-mississippi-state.aspx?fbclid=IwAR2gvmIo-MLwJGINd8qK9w-FYMDRIycSY7yX9HhT-YsmJTxmLo9bX7LMlgo
  5. There's a lot I like about his play; that special burst of speed, clever steals and especially that shot he has perfected when he plows through traffic and banks the ball in as he is falling to the floor.
  6. The following shows stats from last game with Kentucky (ranked 1st in SEC). I believe AU (#11 in conference) has improved and played with a lot of effort but the disparity is very obvious. The influx of talent in next class provides hope for progress. Unfortunately, our last game will be against #2 ranked Mississippi State.

  7. Inspiring to read about a true "student athlete" https://auburntigers.com/news/2021/11/17/equestrian-auburns-helen-lohr-balances-equestrian-engineering-naval-rotc.aspx
  8. Lost to South Carolina last night in straight sets, two of which were very close (23-25, 13-25, 22-25).
  9. CJH first signing class: https://auburntigers.com/news/2021/11/10/womens-basketball-harris-signs-six-in-first-auburn-womens-basketball-class.aspx Looks like a good start.
  10. Volleyball signs 5 in fall signing period https://auburntigers.com/news/2021/11/10/volleyball-crouch-lands-difference-making-class-during-fall-signing-period.aspx?fbclid=IwAR3tC_zevulVEGdQ9bC_0UrBsxGikn5VckFzQ_bSUt-2S_2qFpA6NVUjMek
  11. Split two games with TA&M Thursday and Friday. Both were closely contested 5 set games. Auburn earned the victory Friday night. "The victory was the program's first win over the Aggies in College Station and snapped a 10-match losing skid to Texas A&M. It was just Auburn second victory in the series history and the first since 2013." Looks like progress.
  12. Saw some video on YouTube. Lots of hustle and enthusiasm. She won't be going home on weekends.
  13. Signed 6'5'' transfer from Texas: https://auburntigers.com/news/2021/10/25/womens-basketball-precious-johnson-signs-with-auburn-womens-basketball.aspx
  14. Attended the games yesterday. First off, Godwin was not in uniform but no apparent injury. Bryant dressed but I don’t believe she entered the games. Participated in warm ups and frequently out of dugout to congratulate other players. My overall impression is that we look better at this point than what I can recall over the last 3 seasons. Position wise, it would appear currently that Peralta has a hold on SS as I believe she played the position entirely for both games (I left start of 6th vs Chipola). Likewise, I do not believe there was a substitution for Packer in CF. Bri Ellis got mo
