He doesn't have to face SEC hitters every week. Hard to tell how good he really is, but I wouldn't be surprised if he throws the first game against Auburn. Hope we're ready for him.

Vandy today was simply out of gas. They had to play too many games to even get to today's game. There just wasn't enough left in their tank. Hate it for them.....

Oregon State will be tough but I hope Auburn can pick him apart. I don't know if he's any better than some of the SEC pitchers Auburn has faced. I guess we're about to find out.

Well Hjerpe pitched 30ish pitches two days after he pitched 100 in his start. Maybe fatigue will settle in for him. And sad to see Oregon State overusing pitchers didn't end with Pat Casey.

We just got back home 30 minutes ago.  We = my sweet bride of 31 years and my 2 girls (yes my girls are avid AU sports fans) were fortunate enough to be able to go to the Plains Friday-Monday (from B'ham).   It has been a long time since I got in bed past 2AM 3 nights in a row and didn't grill out for 3 straight nights (ribs are smoking now).  My personal observations -- Plainsman Park may be middle to low in the SEC but boy she sure looked beautiful this weekend +.   Something about the parking deck in left and hundreds of folks hanging there, South Don standing tall in right with the hitting lab right under her.    100's of fans behind the fence in right center. The immaculate clay infield.  The greenest grass in the world.  She simply looked beautiful.  Former MLB star and UCLA player dad, Eric Karros, couldn't have been more complementary of our facilities, fans and program.  His opinion matters.   I stopped another 30 something year old UCLA guy yesterday before the cancellation and asked "tell me about your experience" and he replied simply "man I love Auburn."   This was as they were getting beat 9-0.  I"ll be honest, I sometimes take us for granted.    The games -- we absolutely freakin dominated.    51 runs, 59 hits, 1 error.   Come on man.   Against FSU and UCLA.   Come on.  Our staff-- if you have a pitcher do you want Butch and Huddy coaching your son?  If you have a hitter -- Gabe and Karl?   And add to it the kind of men that they are.    I love BP and what he has done is unreal.  But think of this, Butch has 11 scholarships, no Hope scholarship, no Vandy foundation.  He literally has one hand tied behind his back, yet we have won 9 straight regional games. I think this will be 4 out of the last 5 super regionals for us...  The fans -- our fans are unfreakingcrazygoodunreal.   Mike the helmet guy needs a 6 figure NIL deal.   I have no idea how his voice survives 4 consecutive days.   That man believes in Auburn and loves it.  The stands were so crazy loud.   Mason had 8 straight strikeouts last night in part because the batters had a chainsaw in their head every AB.   There had to be 700 people in the parking deck and another 350 in the outfield.   Because of these things I believe in Auburn and love it.   War Eagle.  I got to check my ribs.

“Mike the helmet” has been at it for 20 plus years. We also have the blond walker. Every game she walks concourse foul pole to foul pole for game duration. Both are great icons at the park imho. Sure beats the old “ Bammer super fan”. They ran Cotten Eyed Joe into the ground with his silliness.

Ms. Boudreaux is so sweet!  If you ever get a chance to speak with her, do it.  A fantastic Auburn lady.

Have I missed something? I haven't heard the Vandy whistler this season. Is there a story there? And no, I didn't like his doofus thing at all and I hope he doesn't come back, while also hoping there's not some tragedy involved.

Hopefully the story is his whistler ain't whistling. Or maybe they finally stopped letting him sit UNDER the crowd mic lol
