  1. ESPNW report on sexual harassment

    Folks keep mentioning the contract extension, but 1 poster noted that the montgomery advertiser said there was no extension. Does anyone know which it is? Changes things a bit if there wasn't one.
  2. ESPNW report on sexual harassment

    I work in higher ed, so I can report to those who're saying that the relationship was (apparently) consensual & he did nothing illegal that you don't understand "intimate relations" policies, nor do you seem to understand the Title IX issues that are in play. I hope like anything that administrators didn't participate in any cover up because Title IX stuff is serious. But I'll also point out that players sending anonymous complaints did nothing to help resolve the situation. An administrator simply cannot act on an anonymous complaint. Anyone can say anything about someone if he or she isn't required to attach their name to the claim. I can understand why the girls chose anonymity, but administrators can't act on that. Just an awful situation.
  3. Clint Myers Resigns

    A number of places don't allow hiring family members (no nepotism). Any other assistant coach who had an affair with a player would likely have been fired forthwith. But he doesn't fire his son and a bad situation gets worse and worse.
  4. Clint Myers Resigns

    I can't decide if I'm more sad or more angry. Sure didn't sound earlier this summer when Coach Myers was talking about going about teaching hitting differently that he was planning to retire. After the mess with Corey, Carlee transferring, lots of talk about things being handled badly... well this news after Coach Myers did NOT sound like he planned to leave just raises again the sense that something went horribly wrong in the running of the program. And here we have this great recruiting class... Sigh... Come on Jay! We need a great hire here!!
  5. Four years later and I'm still mad

    What I'd have loved for him to do is not go down on the 1 (scoring is never guaranteed) but to get inside the 5 & just stop or run laterally or do some jumping jacks, anything to run 13 more seconds off the clock! Which of course no RB could be expected to do. But I had that thought b/c I feared the time left on the clock. Still sad...
  6. ***SECMD17 - Auburn Day***

    So, whenever discussion turns to coaches on a hot seat, we hear about Gus & Sumlin. Maybe Butch Jones. Why not Beliema? I live in Memphis with Ark across the river, & I can tell you that Hogs fans aren't in love with the guy. They find him obnoxious. I don't know if he survives a mediocre season; there's a really good chance he doesn't survive a poor season. So, why isn't he on that list when people start talking about it?
  7. 2017 Softball Discussion, 2018 Look-Ahead

    I'd be glad to hear some comments from those who know about our recruiting class. I know how highly ranked it is. Seems to me that we need hitters, a LF, hitters, a 3rd baseman, SS, hitters, 2nd baseman, & hitters. So, I'd love to hear someone's take on how the class might meet our needs. I'd also like to hear what some of you might think about the development of our young players. Is Greenwood capable of being a solid contributor? Perry? Crocker? Those are the freshman who played the most besides Rivera. At times they looked overmatched. Is that just being freshman, or is that not good news? Thanks for sharing insights.
  8. The announcers keep talking about this being our 2nd consecutive 15-hit game. Does anyone remember if we had any extra base hits in the game yesterday? Seems to me that we had all singles in yesterday's game, which was 1 reason we struggled to score. Today we've had 2 HRs, & 2 doubles.
  9. Just a month or so ago opposing pitchers were pounding the outside part of the plate when Rivera was batting & she couldn't handle it. I remember thinking at 1 point that if I were the opposing team I'd throw her nothing but outside pitches. What a great job she & the coaches have done with learning, adapting, etc. She's killing the outside pitch now. Good for her & for us!
  10. Toomer's Entrance 100 years old

    When I was there last weekend I thought they looked better than at any time since the re-plant. That made me happy!
  11. Woody Barrett Transferring

    On the issue of depth at QB which has been raised here.... The Memphis paper (where I live) had an article a month or so ago about coaches not naming starting QBs in the spring after Butch Jones wouldn't do so at UT. Essentially the article noted that there are a number of reasons why coaches don't name starters early, but the newest factor is the heavy threat of transfers. QBs, especially those who were heavily recruited, always think they should be starting, so if the coach makes it clear that they're not going to be, then they start looking for another place to go (see Alabama last year). My point in bringing this up is to note the challenge coaches face with quality depth at QB. If 2 good QBs are on the team, keeping both of them is hard. Then, if the starter gets hurt... well, we know what can happen. Decisions like Woody's are becoming the rule, not the exception. So, I don't know that recruiting 2 good QBs a year will solve anyone's depth issues. It almost seems to me that the key to anyone's season is having 1 good QB & keeping him healthy. Where would Clemson have been if Watson had gotten hurt? Or Bama if Hurts had gotten hurt? Or OU if Mayfield had gotten hurt? What Ohio State did may never be done again! Maybe we should recruit 1 good QB a year & use that other scholly for another O-lineman! (Just kidding. Sorta...)
  12. Toomer's Entrance 100 years old

    That is very cool indeed! Glad to pass it along.
  13. Toomer's Entrance 100 years old

    I was there yesterday celebrating my niece's graduation (the 16th member of my family to graduate from our beloved university, if I might brag a little) & noticed the historical marker on the brick gates at The Corner: placed there by the class of 1917. So, the Corner as The Entrance to Auburn is 100 years old!! I think that's worth noting & celebrating! I wonder if anyone "official" at Auburn has noticed, & maybe they haven't because surely that would have been a story somewhere. At any rate, to all of us Aubies on this Board, Happy 100th!! War Eagle for the next 100!!
  14. Softball vs. Mississippi State- Game 3

    Just have to note after my comments last night... We hadn't hit a HR for a long time in SEC play, but then we hit 3 in 2 innings. Maybe I need to complain about things more often!
  15. Softball vs. Mississppi State - game 2

    haha! Hope you saw I laughed at myself over that! Good for us! Coming back like we did might be a big moment for this team.
