News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

BASEBALL

Andrew Mitchell threw a very good five innings for Auburn, and the Tigers led 1-0 at that point. Unfortunately, Mitchell was pulled after getting out of a bases loaded jam in the 5th, and then Georgia Tech's offense rocked the Tigers' bullpen to the tune of four runs to take the victory 4-1.

But hey, Everett, Murph, Kevin, and I got on TV (Right to left it's me, Kevin, Murph, Everett).

BASKETBALL

Do the Tigers have another SEC Tournament run in them? The odds are against it, but we'll see. When this team is playing confident, together, and avoiding foul trouble, they can play with most anyone. Even as shorthanded as they are. They start tonight with Tennessee, whom they were 1-1 against during the regular season.

GOLF

The men couldn't complete the home victory and finished just behind Troy at the Tiger Invitational, hosted by Jason Dufner. That's not the best showing for a team that started the season ranked #1.

SOCCER

The spring soccer season has started, and Auburn is 1-0-1, so far. I'd love to tell you when the matches will be, but unfortunately I don't know what the schedule is and couldn't find it while searching real quick last night.

TENNIS

So perhaps the victory over #14 Texas A&M last weekend wasn't as much of an "upset," since the Tigers are now ranked 11th in the nation, which is the highest ranking in program history.

FOOTBALL

There are some rule changes for the 2016 season. The biggest changes are in the targeting rules and the allowing of electronics use by coaches during the games in certain locations.

Auburn hit the field for Spring Practice yesterday afternoon for the fourth session. You can check out a collection of recap stories and know the notes worth highlighting mentioned, as well.

The official site profiles former Tiger Josh Bynes and his plans for life after football. It's an interesting story on his time at Auburn and his preparations for when he's no longer playing the game.

Safety and parking are a priority for Auburn to improve the fan experience (#1 fan experience in the country, y'all!) for the 2016 football season. Parking is definitely something that could use addressing.
