  1. I just don't see this working well. If it is rooms in a student occupied dorm, that sounds like a mix for trouble (I know I would not want this as a parent). If it is an unoccupied dorm, still a lot of money for upkeep to have it ready for a few rooms to rent out. And probably not a great experience for those going back if the dorm is not up to Hotel room standards.
  2. Down to final 4 teams: Florida vs Washington and Oklahoma vs Oregon. UCLA beat Texas A&M but had another controversial call at home - again a close play but this time no obstruction called goes against UCLA. Same type close play (think AU-Cal two times, and LSU-UCLA). Bad enough that the UCLA first base coach (who is a Hall of Famer) got tossed and I believe she had every right to argue that obstruction was not called for them after it was called against them vs LSU. Really disappointed in the officials that I have seen throughout the regionals, super-regionals and now in the WCWS.
  3. I thought CBS did not start their "game of the week" until the 3rd week of the season and it was an SEC-SEC match-up. I could be wrong, but that is what I thought.
  4. Yeah, bad errors by florida cost them in the game. A walk, bunt with an attempt to get the lead runner at second (didn't), another bunt overthrow at first, another bunt and another overthrow at first scores 3 runs for uat. All three bunts fielded and bad throws by the florida ace pitcher Barnhill. Florida later had the bases loaded but couldn't score.
  5. That would be poetic justice and even more so if it was a walk-off homer to send AU to WCWS
  6. Well, through Saturday which got in the Winner's Bracket game in every regional, only two seeded teams have a lost: #10 Oklahoma who lost their first game and #13 LSU who lost the Winner's Bracket game. All 14 others just need to win one game to advance. Of the 5 non-seeded SEC teams, only Georgia and South Carolina are still in but must win two against the seeded team to advance.
  7. AU plays at 11am cst today. Game was moved up due to threat of rainout.
  8. The NCAA site has all the games for scores and it shows which game on which network. But all that is shown right now is through the Friday games. I imagine they will determine if there is a great match-up to put on what channel for the Saturday games. http://www.ncaa.com/sports/softball/d1 And yes, from the AU Regional, first game (ND-Cal; 2pm est) is on ESPN2 and AU-ETSU (430pm est) is on ESPNU (as stated above). The Norman Regional (our super-regional match-up) has Arkansas-Tulsa at 1230 est (1-1/2 hr before our first regional game) and NDSU-OU at 230pm est on ESPN3
  9. Intriguing....but man would that make the East a tough division with Auburn, Alabama, Florida, Tennessee and Georgia. And a cake walk for LSU or aTm in the West (similar to Florida these past few years). Heck in that weak of a west division Big Burt and the hogs might even win a division championship. At least now the West is AU/US/LSU and a sprinkle of aTM with the East being UF/UGA/Tenn and sprinkle of either rmizzou USCe
  10. I know we all have opinions on how they should seed and I know I don't know all they looked at, but it sure seems to me that they did some matchups to try and not get too many teams from one conference to Oklahoma (if seeds hold) and some of the matchups to make it interesting in the super regionals (AU-Okie, LSU-FSU etc..) But hey, like Coach said, 10 more wins to go.
  11. YEAH WE ARE TOP 8, but I think we got dropped pretty low considering we had a 3 RPI. I was expecting 4 or 5 seed. Don' like getting matched to Okie either. But not sue about some of these seedings like Minnesota not hosting but Utah is.
  12. Post regular season update (9 May 17): Auburn moves from 9 to 7 in the Coaches poll Auburn moves from 10 to 8 in the USA Softball poll Auburn moves to from 4 to 3 in the RPI I think if we win the first one in the SEC tournament, we are good to host regional and super-regional.
  13. Man, That is great news if Cooper's arm is not broken and she can be back for SEC tourney and post season play. I was worried she would be out for the season.
  14. AU WINS! Great job Ladies - took the series Sunday takes the sweep.
  15. tgr4lfe - good call on the play ot Fagan, it just was a pop up instead. One more out to go
