Trudat, are you just an unjulating blob of protoplasm living in a vacuum? 

With ALOT of comedians out of work, you need better writers!

As another poster sited, Auburn is already penciled in the tourney, you gotta know that. I don't foresee a massive collapse where they don't make the dance. 

If he can go to Huckleberry Hill/Radford & turn them into a top 40 program & go to the NCAA, then go to middle the road JMU and so the same, I'm pretty sure Auburn won't be feat worthy of walking on water. 

Even if he goes 0-55, there won't be any players living with Asst. Coaches.

outofzone, I get it, another poster said they are penciled in, so it must be so. I didn't say that he'd never be successful, but I do believe it won't happen this year. Of course, right now neither of us know what will happen. But I know that this is not the CAA and he doesn't have the big thrower. Coaching this team will be a big challenge and there are a lot of expectations. Expectations he didn't have at any stop along the way to getting this current job. Getting into the top 40 with Radford was very good. Being the top dog in a mediocre conference will get you into the top 50 teams, but it is far different being in the SEC where every team is better than every team in the Big South or the CAA.

Don't have a dog in the fight but, team has talent and Glasco is an excellent hitting coach.

They will be mid-pack SEC or higher.

Carlson and Martin are a good 1-2 combination.

You say coaching this team will be a big challenge. How so? Because of the expectations? If you're referring to the mythical Softball culture @ Auburn that left town with Myers. I can assure you Dean doesn't give a flying flip about all that. He cares only that all his players fall in line directly behind him. Auburn gets a new AD very soon. The LAST thing that guy will do is interfere with Coach Dean & continuing 'that' culture. 

Auburns a great place to play Softball for sure. But last I checked it was nothing but a huge zit Clint Myers stuck his finger in a burst. So now they get Mickey Dean. Quite the opposite of Clint Myers & his pedophile son. 

Challenge? Ye right. That bar was so low before Dean got there you couldn't roll a Tick Turde underneath it.

Auburn's pitching staff should be better than last year.  They did not lose anyone, added two good freshmen, and have another year of experience.  Mickey Dean is also a MUCH better pitching coach than Corey Myers or Hunter Veach.  Clint Myers should have been fired immediately after he named Hunter Veach the pitching coach, but I guess everything worked itself out in the end.

Glasco is a good hitting instructor and he has his work cut out for him this season.  Auburn lost a lot of offensive firepower from last years lineup and need 4 or 5 players to step-up.  If Tannon Snow's career is really over it makes Glasco's job that much harder.  Justus Perry needs to improve her defensive play at 1B and cut down on the strikeouts because not having Tannon at 3B means Veach will probably end up on the hot corner.

Not to be a smart A$$ but aren't all SEC teams already penciled into the tournament? 

I admit that at this time they are no doubt THE best conference in the country when it comes to softball. But can you honestly say they all deserve preference over conference champions when it comes to tournament placements and hosting?

Ok, I am the newbie and put myself out there. Just my $.02.

The SEC teams that hosted largely deserved to host. Of the 2017 regional hosts:

Florida finished 2nd

LSU finished tied for 5th

Texas A&M finished tied for 7th

Auburn finished tied for 9th, kept from WCWS by team that won it all

Alabama finished tied for 9th, kept from WCWS by team that finished national runner-up, winning a game in supers

Kentucky finished tied for 9th, kept from the WCWS by team that finished in Final Four

Ole Miss finished tied for 9th, kept from the WCWS by team that finished tied for fifth

Tennessee finished tied for 9th, kept from the WCWS by team that finished tied for seventh

No SEC team lost a regional they hosted

The SEC without a doubt is head and heels above every other conference. Auburn's new coach is in for a big change coming from his Radford and JMU days, when he ruled the roost. I'm sticking by my bottom 3rd pick. Maybe that gets you into the NCAA tournament, maybe not. Let's revisit this in April.

Is all the SEC hosting teams advancing s a sign of the dominance of the SEC or the importance of being the home team?  I'm not sure Bama wins that series if its in Mpls.

But that’s just a guess, right? I mean they didn’t have an issue taking a game off UF and UF was a better team than Minny.

Is that official or just a rumor?

Huge shoes to fill as it sounds like Gerry was the person who invented the idea of slicing the loaf of bread in addition to his other major accomplishments and comments about his qualifications.

Yes, congrats to Coach Glasco. Can’t blame him for taking a HC job, but Auburn has huge shoes to fill for a hitting coach.

Well, if Auburn offers up 125 to 150, they will get whomever they want, I would surmise. But, at this point, it would cost them

Yes they do, but I would think they would not have a problem filling them, especially for coaches looking for an avenue into the SEC

Heard a rumor that Tannon Snow has had another medical setback and I would be very surprised if she plays this season.  Her sister Taylon was also rumored to have recently been in a pretty serious car accident.  I do not think she was hospitalized, but I heard the vehicle was totaled.

Any idea who may be Glasgow replacement? What about the guy that use to be at south Alabama jimmy kolitis. Isn't he from Alabama? I know Calvin Beaman that was at South Carolina was decent. Not sure what happen at South Carolina.

Any other ideas?? I'm excited about coach dean - if he can make another good hire like Glasgow we should be right back in the mix.

When was Auburn ever OUT of the mix? Dean could park the ball girl as 1st base coach & Auburn would still be just fine.
