News and notes from the Auburn corners of the Internet

BASEBALL

The final out-of-conference series of the year started badly with blowing a big lead late, but it ended much better with wins on Saturday and Sunday for the Tigers. Auburn didn't drop a single OOC series leading into the SEC schedule, so that's always a good thing.

BASKETBALL

Brandon Marcello ponders whether or not the Tigers will make the NCAA Tournament next season. For the first time under Pearl, there will be a ton of returning talent. On top of that, there will be two more very good players coming in who could conceivably start right at the start. While we were hoping for the NIT this season, I really think the NCAA Tournament is the goal next year.

SOFTBALL

It was nerve-wracking and featured a run-rule loss, but Auburn Softball still got the series win against LSU to open SEC play. That's huge for momentum. It's even better because the bats were working against quality SEC pitching.

TENNIS

The men knocked off Alabama 6-1. There will never be a time I won't report on an Auburn team beating an Alabama team.

After a series of great weeks, the 8th ranked ladies fell at home to #13 UGA.

FOOTBALL

Chip Lindsey wants Auburn's tight ends to be "versatile." We do too. I really want to see that position get more involved for Auburn this season. The Tigers were at their best (2010 and 2013) when there was a good tight end option.

Josh Holsey wasn't invited to the NFL Combine. He wanted to use Auburn's Pro Day as a chance to shine for NFL clubs and assuage any fears on his two surgically repaired knees, and he did a pretty good job of it.

Monty Adams believes he has a lot to offer NFL teams, as well. I'd agree that he does. He had a monster senior season and I expect he won't be on the board past the 2nd round.
