    Softball Plainsman Invitational

    Saminbama is right on the Drake pitcher. She was good but it was the fact that AU would not lay off the rise ball where she got so many strike outs. When we scored, Perry reached on a walk because she laid off the rise ball. We finally learned (in the 5th) to take that pitch. AU needs to learn who are the rise ball pitchers and no to avoid them early in the game to force them to bring the ball in zone. May mean getting a few called strike threes, but will get some walks before that to force the pitch into the zone.

    247 Softball Preview (merged)

    I would like to see the stats on Conference vs non-Conference. IIRC we did really well on stealing in non-conference play. I just hope CMD has learned catchers in the SEC are not the non-conference or JMU conference level players and may not be as good a risk to steal. Of course, timing is critical, go on the off-speed or change up that might be in the dirt helps the runner and about the only time to run in the SEC.

    2020 Softball Recruiting

    Well, Millie Roberts is a 2022 recruit who said Auburn is the place for her and she committed in January 2018, so hopefully, she will continue to grow as a player and come to AU when she can.

    Softball coming events

    IIRC, Martin hit from the left and our number of lefties has decreased. So it may be more situational for Martin to come in when we could benefit from a lefty PH. I think that is how she was used earlier. Agree that injury may be an issue, maybe let her hit, get on and then pinch run for her.

    Heads up Clemson fans

    My thought exactly - worried I'll see pictures of dead fish floating in their lake. Clemson is often referred to as Auburn with a lake, so....

    Bammers vs Clemson - 2019 edition

    Clemson using the same plays as Bama - bamma goes deep for their first touch down and Clemson comes back with the deep pass. Bama tried the shuttle pass at the goal line and clemson ate it up, then on the goal line they go to the shuttle pass to score. Dabo picking some fun at Nicky????

    ***Music City Bowl — Game Thread***

    Gus letting Stidham show off the arm to help him with the draft. Second half we will have Malik Willis and only run the ball.

    Baseball tickets

    I believe this is about same for all sports. Season ticket holders hit the big games, conference games and some of the others - guarantees the seats for those games by having season tickets - only way to get tickets for the Bama game (in football when we are home) is by buying the season tickets. I have softball and women's basketball season tickets and go all the games (OOC, small school) as much as I can (live 15 minutes from the campus, work keeps me out of men's basketball so that buying season tickets is not worth it). I have seen so much less attendance for the OOC and smaller school games. One of the things AU has done recently, for those that can't make the games is make transferring the tickets to someone else easier, to try and get more folks into the games if the season ticket holder can't make the game.
  10. Saw some tweets that Scot Loeffler has been selected as Head Coach for Bowling Green and he has hired Brian VanGorder as Associate Head Coach and linebackers coach. Some AU past, we'll see how they do in the MAC
  11. You say you donate, but are you a member of Tigers Unlimited Fund? I, am also an alumni, season ticket holder and member of TUF and I got the letter in my email. Is your email on the list? That may be why you did not get the letter. I noted started getting these type letters and such after becoming a member of TUF.

    So are we talking Bob Stoops as HC and Kliff Kingsbury as OC and Kevin Steele stays as DC????

    Iron Bowl Score Prediction

    Gotta go with 3-2 AU; Bama gets an early safety and Carlson kicks a 54 yarder to win it! Might as well, my head tells me that our offense cannot score on them, and that Stidham will throw 2 or 3 interceptions. I am afraid Bama wants to bury us this year, so I really expect something like 55-0.

    Football Rules and Interpretations

    Thanks, WarTiger. Good explanation on both.

    Football Rules and Interpretations

    War Tiger, High school situation - Team A has 4th and is punting, kick is made but there is a foul against receiving team. So, thinking PSK issues, if foul is before receiving team possesses the ball, is it not PSK and penalty assessed from previous spot, goes back to kicking team and replay the down (unless penalty yardage results in first down)? If penalty is after possession, then still receiving team ball and penalty assessed from spot of foul. Is that correct?
