I don't disagree with any of what you point out.  However, I can't help but laugh when anyone, Auburn person or not, suggests that what Clint did with the softball program was anything less than spect

I’m not here to debate about Myers; he did spectacular things for us.    I would like to give a shout-out to the recruiting job that Tina Deese and her assistants, Steve Johnson and Mark Ryal,

Clint built a winning mindset. The team was confident they would be successful at the plate, and they never let an error or mistake spiral into catastrophe. Those aspects are the biggest differences I

Where’s Emily??  She’s not at this game as well as the last game. Dean has called her out several times this season. How unprofessional for a head coach. 

Called her out for what?

He was very angry with her one game for sending a runner. He should speak to her in dugout not in front of fans and our players. He did this last year several times.

I would guess about 25% of the pitches Shelby has thrown that were called balls were strikes.  This umpire's zone is horrible.  Shelby pitches her heart out and gets 0 support.  That's a tough one to lose.

As an umpire I call it like I see them.  She had to throw more pitches than she need to because of his horrible zone.

That’s too easy an excuse. We’ve seen 3 different umpires in the last 3 games and have scored 1 run total. 
 

we had runners on 2nd 3 different times at least with less than 2 outs and couldn’t score. All 3 times we got that runner to 3rd w 2 outs and couldn’t manufacture a run.

we are just not hitting well.

No excuse.  I've already stated she got no support, but she may have been able to go a couple of innings more if her pitch count wasn't unnecessarily high.  Our hitting has been non-existent the entire year.  There's nothing new about that.

The fans always look for someone to blame and maybe the finger needs to be pointed to our own dugout....

Well I seem to remember the Florida game last year where Yarborough threw 180+ pitches not counting warm ups according to the starts and game recap... Lowe only threw 107+... big girl ball here and Florida is MUCH better than Ole Miss

The problem is not the umps or how many pitches were thrown. The problem is our lack of quality hitting. Our approaches are awful and nothing is fixed. Coaching has known this has been a problem for years yet hasn’t fixed it. Time to make a change somewhere.

Emily is currently with the Italian National team. They are touring Florida in prep for the Olympics. I think she will be in Spain with them prepping in May. 
 

Graduate assistant Krista Clyde Harrell is coaching first. She is an AU softball alum and married to KT Harrell.

Master of the understatement! One run in three games is pretty much as bad as the hitting can get. Upperclassmen are hitting worse this year than last. It's discouraging.

I have seen that used in nonconference games, but it is not used in conference play.

 

Usually in tourneys to keep schedule on track

I don’t think Shelby will be leaving. Just a gut feel. 

I agree.  She's a legacy.  Her dad is a veterinarian.
