Don't people know good hitting is taught?

Auburn couldn't hit before Myers got there.........I mean, they were really bad...........Put the dots together.........

Clint is going to rely on the pitching??????  With no pitching coach that may be hard if the wheels come off that bus.  SEC teams have two years scouting on Carlson and Martin.  They won't be able to continue to pitch the way they did. Hitters are too good!!!  Pitchers must adapt and they need seasoned guidance.

Great point. Both pitchers will need to develop another usable pitch or start mixing speeds better to continue being successful in the SEC.

Auburn can really mix things up by making Carlson pitch legal.

Now that would be a change of pace sure to throw everybody off...bet there's no film on that.

I guess time will tell how good a pitching coach Hunter Veach really is...but until proven otherwise, I expect Carlson and Martin to continue at their same level of success as last season.  Auburn will also get some help from their two incoming freshmen who I anticipate will be better as a #3 pitcher than Swindle.

Calson has no incentive to change until umpires start calling her for being illegal...just like Kelly Barnhill.  But Carlson should be able to easily adjust her step and become legal since all she really needs is a toenail touching the white line.

I am just surprised that hitters in the SEC have not made the adjustment since she has been doing the same thing her whole career.

While I certainly agree that adaptation, especially the ability to change speeds is important, it is a stretch to say that they won't be able to pitch as they have, especially Carlson.  She adjusted well to her first trip through the SEC and did a better job last season.  McKayla needs to adjust to the change in strike zones not allowing the bottom of the knee call she got a lot as a freshman and didn't last season.  They'll adjust.   Hunter, for all of his "lack of experience" has been successful wherever he's been, including both as hitting and pitching coach at Auburn.  I'm sure there will be a hiccup or two.  I'd be shocked if wheels are falling off buses, especially with a couple of new arms coming in and Swindle still getting better as well.

Bama has lost 5 of last 6 to AU and have shown 0 signs of figuring Carlson or Martin out, but maybe they'll figure it out this year.

Oh the assumption that Alabama in moniker means he/she is a Bama fan.

Heard a rumor that ESPN is preparing a story on the Auburn softball program.  Anyone have the inside scoop?  If the rumor is true it will be interesting to see if it has a positive (Clint turning the program around) or negative (Corey's resignation) slant.

Would be odd timing for there to be a story about him turning around Auburn in the middle of the softball offseason.

Going through Corey's call logs and text messages could be very insightful...I wonder if he was using a phone provided by the university and if it is subject to the freedom of information act.  I think that is what brought Hugh Freeze down!

Would be odd timing for any softball story in the offseason, unless there was some sort of news factor to it.  But who knows, maybe it's one of those Tom Rinaldi/Sunday morning human interest pieces.

What brought Freeze down was that he was blaming the previous staff (Houston Nutt) for NCAA transgressions.  Nutt sued, and as part of the suit vs. Ole Miss and Hugh Freeze, got his phone records.  Freeze was allowed to redact personal calls as the lawsuit was about Ole Miss and Freeze harming his (Nutt's) reputation.  Freeze forgot to redact the one minute call to the escort service in Tampa.  Ironically, it was the Miss State Scout.com writer that was helping go through all the call logs.   That person was looking up numbers via the internet with his wife when they discovered the number was to a Tampa escort service....that got back to the attorneys and the rest is history.

I tried to tell them that once, but they didn't want to hear it.  This stuff is easily verifiable if he used a school phone.  You can also FOIA emails between AD and Clint.

There's no mistaking why Freeze would be calling an escort service. Myers could have players' numbers in his call log and it not necessarily mean anything. Now if those calls were happening at 1 am it's not too hard to figure out the reasoning.
