Tonight pretty much summed up the season...up 11-6 in the 7th, cough up 6 and lose 12-11.

The worst SEC record that I've seen in the last 20 seasons was 5-24-1...Bammers put that masterpiece together in 2017.

Not sucking that bad is now the target for this season. Got to not lose 4 of the last 5.

Welp, we won yesterday and today so we avoided the ineptitude of 2017 Alabama.  If we can just take the series next weekend and head into next year with some good feelings…

My question is:
Is it what the pitching coach inherited, or a string of bad coaching?


Hopefully one way or another, they’re planning to shake some things up in the off-season to make us better.

Hudson leaves. Foxhall enters. It’s very very obvious a drop off happened in development that coincided with this. The recruiting has been good. Enough to not have the record that we do.

Switch hitting catcher Lucas Steele joins the team through the portal from Samford. He brings some HR power to the middle of the lineup. His teammate INF Garrett Staton is said to be a possible transfer as well. Staton, more if a doubles hitter would be a nice addition as well.


Doesn't address the pitching woes but the incoming class is said to be highly rated so we'll see what happens next season.

Was very surprised to see that the staff was expected to stay intact. I thought for sure the pitching coach would be replaced.

I think we may be losing several to the portal.  The CF was most prominent one that I saw so far.

Damn, wasn't aware of that. No clue what Hudson was drawing when he was at Auburn. I looked to see what he was doing now, didn't learn anything. Probably fishing or playing golf.

Head Corch @ Lee Scott.

Stanfield was excellent defense, but left a lot to be desired at the plate.

Just looking at the 17 incoming freshman from February and no true outfielders in sight. A few of the pitchers played some at 1B but no everyday glove that can cover ground. Maybe Stanfield's replacement is already on the roster.

Wanted to coach his kid at Lee Scott his last few years. Didn't draw anything at Auburn (volunteer). From what I have been told by a former player who is super tight with him helping coach as a GA Timmy's few years, don't hold your breath on him coming back. There was more to it than just him leaving to coach his kid. Although I would love it if he ever did. He was excellent.

Not sure it'll matter as long as trying to recruit players from state's where the lotto gives them full rides.

Haven't seen anything on that yet but would be a nice break to get for the program. Saw the renovations this weekend. Very nice.
