Interesting Tidbits on Baseball’s Not Top Ten Moment, Football, and Golf Nationals

Happy Friday and happy Memorial Day weekend. After Baseball’s heartbreaking loss yesterday, there’s been a raging debate over whether or not Auburn is “unlucky”. It’s an understandable question given the still fresh wounds from the blown UVA call in the Final Four. Not to mention the LSU football game last year. Anyway, the only way to get over tough losses is to catch up on all the interesting tidbits you need to know. Enjoy.

– Speaking of Baseball, let’s start with the good. Auburn opened the SEC Tournament with a convincing win over Tennessee. Full highlights of that game are here.

– It was downhill from there. Auburn completely flopped in their second game against Vanderbilt. Here’s a look back at the game’s updates and highlights. It only gets worse from here.

– If you have a weak stomach, skip this tidbit. After taking the lead in the top of the 8th, Auburn held a 3-2 lead until the bottom of the 9th. With one out and two runners on, Auburn put in a freshman pitcher. Then this happened. I was the only person at a bar watching it live and I’ve never felt more alone.

– Now we wait to see if/where Auburn is playing in the post-season.

– Whew. Here’s some good baseball news: Former Auburn player Garrett Cooper walked off for the Marlins. And bonus good baseball news: the future is looking bright.

– Football added a big RB recruit to the 2021 class. See what you can expect from him here.

– In other recruiting news, see where Auburn stands with a 4-star LB and a JUCO OT.

– A future Auburn Basketball player qualified for the 2019 USA Basketball Men’s U19 World Cup Team training camp.

Men’s Golf is heading back to Nationals and a few seniors are looking to lead the way. Here’s a breakdown of the entire field and how to keep up live this afternoon.

Women’s Golf stormed back in the first round of match play to beat Texas. Unfortunately, their underdog bid ended in the second round.

Auburn Suffers Crazy Ending to SEC Tournament Appearance

Going into their game with LSU Thursday, Auburn needed a good outing from starter Jack Owen and a strong presence at the plate to stay alive in the SEC Tournament. The Tigers got both and were leading the game 3-2 in the bottom of the ninth with one out when the Tigers suffered a crazy, devastating loss.

Auburn got the pitching it needed and the hits but not the win. Owen allowed only one run on five hits with one walk and five strikeouts in 5,1/3 innings against the No. 17 Bengals. And the Tigers totaled nine hits on the day led by Judd Ward going 3 for 5 at the plate yet wound up losing the elimination game 4-3.

With one out and runners on second and third for LSU, catcher Matt Scheffler couldn’t locate a bounced pitch by freshman Brooks Fuller allowing the tying run to score and then first baseman Rankin Woley found the ball and made a wild throw to the plate and the winning run from second gave LSU (36-24) the win.

Coach Butch Thompson said he had never witnessed a game end like that in all of his years coaching. It was a heartbreaking way to bow out of the tourney. But the Tigers have got to find a way to put it behind them and focus on getting ready for the upcoming NCAA Big Show.

Auburn will find out at 11 a.m. CT Monday on ESPNU where they will be playing in the NCAA Tournament during the NCAA Selection Show.

Auburn Baseball Set for Rematch With LSU

After being run-ruled by No. 2 Vanderbilt Wednesday, the Auburn Tigers are set to play LSU, a team they beat 5–4 in extra innings in the final game of the regular season. Today’s SEC Tournament game will pit LHP Jack Owen (4–2, 2.37 ERA) against LSU’s Landon Marceaux (4–2, 5.70 ERA).

The two faced each other in the Friday game of that series in what was a pitcher’s dual even though the  5–1 score belied that fact. Marceaux gave up just two hits and one run in seven innings while Owen allowed four runs in seven innings.

Auburn not only needs a good outing from Owen but a strong presence at the plate. One thing that may help the boys in blue is how tired LSU may be after playing for nearly 7 hours (17 innings) yesterday in a losing contest to Mississippi State. The 6–5 defeat didn’t conclude till 3:00 a.m.

Both teams are playing to stay alive in the Tourney after tough losses. The winner advances and the loser goes home to await its destination in the NCAA postseason.

Depending on how long the morning game between Texas A&M and Ole Miss takes, the first pitch for Auburn–LSU is scheduled for 12:30 CT. Go Auburn …

Willis Departure Leaves More Questions on Malzahn

It took longer than expected, but reports began to circulate less than a week ago that Malik Willis will elect to enter the famed transfer portal. Although no official word has been made about this, sources close to Willis say that a conversation between the two-year back up and the coaching staff took place last Thursday.

Exiting the spring, coach Gus Malzahn and offensive coordinator Kenny Dillingham cut the quarterback race to two players, effectively excluding Willis, who had the most experience of the three. True freshman and former five-star recruit Bo Nix will battle it out with redshirt freshman and prototypical dual-threat Joey Gatewood. 

For many fans, Willis didn’t have much of a chance to battle the two other quarterbacks, and with the current transfer rules in college football, Willis was as good as gone in most fans’ eyes when spring ball concluded.

It wasn’t like he had a bad spring game that sealed the deal. Willis was quietly efficient throwing the ball, yet didn’t have a chance to show off his Nick Marshall-esq ability that made him a viable option as a backup under Jarrett Stidham the last two seasons

Bo Nix and Joey Gatewood stole the show, but it was Willis who scored the first points. While the throw was into double coverage and not very pretty, it got the job done. That’s been Willis’ MO in his limited playing time, especially as a freshman when he used his legs to exploit defenses. There was a lot of promise shown in that small sample size, but 2018 offered fewer opportunities. There just didn’t seem to be a lot of improvement. 

If anything, there looked to be some sort of regression. Willis looked less comfortable his second year as Stidham’s backup than in his first. There were some bad reads here and there, but more importantly, the lasting image of Willis in 2018 was Malzahn chewing him out as he came off the field because he threw the ball on an RPO when Malzahn clearly wanted him to run the ball.

Obviously it’s tough to judge why that conversation happened and just what transpired on the field and in the huddle, but one thing was for sure: Malzahn didn’t have faith in Willis. That begs the question, was it about Willis? Was it about the two other QB’s? Or was it some concoction of oddities over the last year, such as last year’s struggling offensive line and dysfunctional play calling from two differing offensive minds?

Regardless, Willis’ time on the Plains is done, but don’t be surprised if he moves down the road and joins Troy’s new head man, Chip Lindsey. That would likely form a point-scoring machine in Troy. 

Taking a deeper look into what Willis’ departure means for the Auburn program and not just hashing out what others have said, it can be safely said that the jury is still out on whether Gus Malzahn can recruit and develop a quarterback. After the train wreck that was the Jeremy Johnson experiment, slightly alleviated for a few weeks with Sean White’s play in 2016 (read: handing the ball off to Kam Pettway and Kerryon Johnson), Malzahn had an opportunity with Willis to show that yes, he could recruit and develop a quarterback out of high school. Willis presented a good opportunity for Gus to show what he could do.

Willis was electric in high school and put up gaudy numbers, but he wasn’t an A-list player. He was a decent backup to a future NFL talent, and while no one was chanting his name during the doldrums of 2018, fans at least had some faith in him and anticipated a reversion to the offense that put Auburn on the map in 2013 and 2014. Developing Willis would show that Malzahn could learn from his mistakes, make good on his shortcomings of years past, and he do it in year seven, likely his most important year to date. 

Yet, in year seven, those questions will not really be answered. In fact, it is quite possible that another lackluster year will find Malzahn not quite on the hot seat BECAUSE he will be starting another young quarterback— a built-in excuse for Malzahn. Yet, isn’t it possible that Willis’ departure answers the development question?

It’s certainly possible that Willis himself is to blame for not progressing, and it is certainly possible that Nix and Gatewood are just that talented. What is more likely, however, is that Malzahn and Co. do not have the ability to develop players, despite having two full years to prepare a backup quarterback. It’s not like this is a new question. Quarterbacks simply don’t get better under him, and his three most successful signal callers at Auburn were all transfers. In the middle are a ton of guys who didn’t pan out on the field or transferred, never to be heard from again. 

2019 is a new year, and it started with the Music City Bowl blowout of Purdue, highlighted by Malzahn’s return to play calling. While there has been a lot of bad data about his ability to develop quarterbacks, there’s a lot of good data on his ability to call plays.

If Auburn wants to return to the elite level and stay there, as Alabama, Georgia, and Clemson have done, Malzahn must find ways to develop quarterbacks out of high school as those elite programs have done. Those programs have seen their share of new blood supplanting experienced players and seeing those players depart for other schools. The difference is, their new-blood players looked the part on game day as, for the most part, did those experienced players when they emerged at other schools.  

Make no mistake, if Auburn has a rough year, Malzahn will parlay having to use a young quarterback into one more season. Has he learned from his mistakes and remedied them with Kenny Dillingham? Is Dillingham the missing piece that can develop quarterbacks? While we would like to believe that fans will know by the end of this coming season, Willis’ departure, for whatever reason, will truly mark the date that the jury went out on Gus Malzahn.

Monday Musings From The Plains (5-20-19 edition)

The Auburn Softball team showed grit and determination over the weekend in having to face No. 6 national seed and regional host Arizona twice in the NCAA Regional Championship round. That was particularly true after Auburn pitcher Ashlee Swindle suffered a scary injury Friday when she was hit over the eye by a line drive in the Tigers’ win over Colorado State. 

“The winning and losing games, all that went out the window when she got hit with that ball,” said Coach Mickey Dean. “ Winning and losing ballgames kind of went out the window until we found out she was going to be okay.”

Thankfully Ashlee was okay but she had to be hospitalized with a concussion and was not able to return to the field for the remaining games.

Her absence from the line up Saturday along with ace Makayla Martin out with a broken hand and shortstop Taylon Snow unavailable, the Tigers still came close in a 2-1 defeat to Arizona.

On Sunday the Wildcats were just too much for Auburn’s depleted roster and their season ended in a 12-3 loss. Coach Dean said he could not remember a season in his 20 year career that had so many injuries. With all the ups and downs this bunch had to face this season it’s just amazing they finished the year with 40 wins. They didn’t make it to a Super Regional but they came oh so close. Auburn fans can be proud of the way they represented Auburn University

The Women’s Golf Team advanced to the third round of the NCAA Women’s Golf Championship Sunday after finishing round two Sunday at 3 over par. The Tigers enter today’s round at Blessings Golf Club in Fayetteville in a tie for ninth place at 24 over. 

The top eight teams in the third round will advance to match play beginning Tuesday. Here’s to hoping the Tigers will be in the final eight.

Auburn men’s golfer Jovan Rebula has been named a semifinalist for the Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year Award, by the GCAA (Golf Coaches Association of America). Rebula will lead the No.11 Tigers in the NCAA Championship beginning this Friday. It will be Auburn’s eighth consecutive trip to the National Championship Tournament. Only three other teams have accomplished that feat before.

Auburn Baseball got a huge win over the weekend against No. 20 LSU in Baton Rouge. Calling it a program win Coach Butch Thompson said, “What this win will do today will be remembered here as one that kept this thing going. I’ll never let that go away as long as I have a say. I’ll always point to today to teach future teams. It was a huge character win.”

Trailing 4-2 in the ninth inning, The Gift Of Tai Chi
drove an 0-2 pitch over wall in left field to tie the game. Then in the 11th inning, Will Holland also hit an 0-2 pitch (this one down the line) to score Ryan Bliss  from second base and win the game.

It was Auburn’s (32-23, 14-16 SEC) fifth extra-inning victory in seven extra-inning games this year. The Tigers will now face Tennessee Tuesday in the SEC Tournament. Game time will be at 4:30 in the Hoover Metronome. Until next time War Eagle and …

Interesting Tidbits on Auburn vs Oregon, #GolfSchool, and the NBA Combine

Happy Friday. Summer is almost here and that means entering a stretch with little to no Auburn news. I’m already sad thinking about ESPN’s top plays being 10 diving catches from meaningless MLB games. But we’re not there yet, so enjoy all of the interesting tidbits  you need to know heading into the weekend.

– We have broadcast information for Auburn’s week one showdown against Oregon. If you don’t remember, this is what happened last time the teams played. I want Shaun Shivers to do the exact same thing.

– If you were nervous about the matchup, rest easy. Seriously though, here’s a good look at the matchup.

– See which AUFast Football players are competing in the NCAA Track & Field East Preliminaries. One of them even has a new number.

– A QB no longer in the QB battle entered his name in the transfer portal.

– More “analysts” are saying dumb things about the state of Auburn’s Football program. What do you think about Gus’s job security?

– Jared Harper has validated his decision to leave for the NBA. Some of his combine numbers are ridiculous. Check out the rest of his measurables here.

– Speaking of the draft, where does an injured Chuma Okeke fit into the picture.

– Some Basketball players are still angry about Auburn’s Final Four exit. How has your grieving process gone?

Softball is heading to regional play in Tucson. See what’s important for their bid at a national title.

– Men’s Golf qualified for nationals despite a rough final day in Louisville. See who else made it and other information about the contest.

– Auburn must be a #GolfSchool. Women’s Golf begins their journey to a national championship this afternoon. You can follow along here.

– Finally, why not go ahead and get hyped for Women’s Tennis?!
