War Eagle Ball
« on: February 17, 2022, 03:58:16 PM »
The Tigers open the season tomorrow (18th) out in Arlington, Texas.  They'll play 3 games against Oklahoma, #12 Texas Tech, and finish with Kansas State.

The remainder of the OOC schedule is the usual, uninspiring garbage.  That may be where they have to pick up most of their wins, because they are predicted to be at the bottom of the conference again this year.  Plus, the SEC appears to be loaded again, with 4 of the top 5 teams in the preseason poll being from this conference.

Probably won't help the talent level, but just past the right field wall, they opened a hitting center, donated by Josh Donaldson.  Went in before one of the football games this year.  Pretty cool place, but really just some glorified, indoor batting cages.

The War Eagles took 2 out of 3 games out in Texas this weekend.  Lost the opener to Oklahoma, then beat #12 Texas Tech and destroyed Kansas State 12-1.  Only allowed 5 total runs in the 3 games.

Next game is tomorrow against Troy in Auburn.  I noticed the SEC slate has 30 games, but does not include Missouri, Florida or FUGA.  Unfortunately, it does have series against 5 teams in the top 10.  But, that's always the case in the SEC.

The Fighting War Eagles popped the Condoms 13-1.  Good to see them playing so good in the early season, but I don't get too hyped. They pretty much did the same thing last season, and even scored over 30 runs in one game.  Then the SEC schedule started. 

Damn is there a sport this conference doesn't not suck in?

That's just because we don't want to not suck in hockey.  If we wanted to not suck, we wouldn't not suck.

Yale comes in for a 3 game set, starting this afternoon.  Hopefully, Muffy and Biff can make it down to cheer on the Bulldogs.

The good guys go to 6-2 with a 13-7 win over Alabama State.  Most runs they've given up this year, but I'm thinking they used the bottom of their rotation for some, or all of the game. They had a 9-2 lead going into the 6th and got rocked pretty good the next two innings.

UAB comes in tonight, then Rhode Island this weekend for a 5 game set. Double Headers on Saturday and Sunday.

Tigers got 11-2 with a 4 game sweep of Rhode Island.  I read the schedule wrong and thought they had 5 games this weekend.  However, in 4 games, Auburn pitching gave up a grand total of 3 runs, while scoring Eleventy Skwazillion themselves.

Now at 12-2 with a late 4-3 comeback win over Tennessee Tech.  I kind of shrugged off TT, thinking it was just a mid week game against a small program. But I was curious...and Bi...so I Google Chromed Tech.  Not so fast, my friend. Last night was their first loss.  Tech was 10-0 coming in.  They had a game suspended late due to weather against Tennessee, who is pretty damn good this year, with UT leading 5-4. So, looks like a good win.

I was at that game and we played ok.  Our pitching is not a strong point and I guess we should have known that coming into the year.  I think Butch said if the pitching comes around we can make some noise.  It really showed this past weekend.  We lost the series to MTSU 1-3.  MTSU is 7-10 overall and 9 of those losses are bad!  I mean really BAD!  I'm hoping that Huddy can pull a rabbit out of his hat but it looks gloomy.
