News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

A-DAY

There's a ton of stuff going on in Auburn this weekend. A lot. Auburn has tried to make a lot out of A-Day over the last few years.

BASEBALL

So yesterday I wrote a preview for this weekend's series against Mizzou. The bullpen has been a bit of an issue for Auburn, this season. It was most definitely not last night. After getting rocked hard for 7 runs in the 4th inning and falling behind 9-5, Gordon Cardenas closed the inning out. Then Ben Braymer came in and proceeded to allow two hits and strike out ELEVEN batters. The offense came back strong, too, and Auburn got out of Game 1 with an 11-9 victory.

EQUESTRIAN

10 NCEA All-American honors for the Equestrian team. That's pretty good. Of course, when you only lose one meet and you're ranked #1, that's not surprising.

SOFTBALL

Longwood (who?) is coming to town this weekend, and it's Auburn's "Pink Weekend" for Breast Cancer Awareness.

FOOTBALL

Rhett Lashlee met with the media following the final spring practice prior to Saturday's A-Day game. He had a lot to say about the QBs. In fact, most of it was about the QBs.

Wednesday, AL.com had a piece about what we've learned from the offense so far in the spring. Yesterday, it was on to the defense. I'll tell you what we've been hearing: the defense has a chance to be very good. They've really responded to Kevin Steele and are extra focused.

AL.com has also had a series featuring the contenders for Auburn's starting QB job. Yesterday, it was Tyler Queen, and the big question is if he can fight back from injury. Again.

Want to see Auburn DB coach Wesley McGriff mic'd up? Sure you do.
