The league is a real power house right now, and it's sad that we aren't part of it. We've always been a strong baseball conference, but this year seems even more so. Look at the latest Coach's Poll...
3. South Carolina
17. Ole Miss
23. Mississippi State
Others receiving votes:
And that doesn't count future member Texas A&M at #5.
Who knows how things will shake out once conference play begins. I'm guessing some of those teams will fall back a bit. But still, it's frustrating that 9 teams are getting votes, and we aren't one of them. Hopefully we can start executing a little better and find our identity as the season rolls on.

Looks like the SEC tournament will be a tougher tournament than the CWS. It doesn't appear that a top 25 recruiting class every couple of years is going to get the job done in this league either. With that being said, if we'd play better defense, this year's AU team would be competitive with anyone on our schedule. I'm really excited about the freshman lhp from Huntsville High.
And because Auburn men and women believe in these things, I believe in Auburn and love it.
