War Eagle, everybody! We’ll take a break this week from the preview business, and take a look around the Auburn sports world. Next week, I’ll get back to Auburn’s opponents, when Auburn hosts a rebuilding Arkansas team in week 4. This week will be a more laidback affair.
The past year has been better than average for major Auburn sports, although softball took a step back, getting drummed out of the SEC Tournament in short order. However, the team is still alive in the NCAA regional tournament in Tallahassee, after knocking off Kennesaw State 5–2. A much more difficult game awaits tomorrow morning at 11:00 AM against host team Florida State.
Auburn’s baseball team has come along by leaps and bounds since the hiring of head coach Butch Thompson. Auburn walloped LSU 11–4 yesterday and needs to continue to win going into next week’s SEC Tournament. For most of the past 10 years, Auburn hasn’t even been able to make the tournament. This year, the Tigers have a legitimate shot to go deep into post-season play behind excellent pitching.
Auburn men’s basketball won a regular season SEC title, which was quite the feat for a short-handed squad. Auburn head coach Bruce Pearl has built a solid brand and an emerging program. Auburn is now a destination in basketball, not an afterthought.
