Can anyone explain Auburn's pre-conference schedule? Are these leftover cupcakes from Clint?  JMU certainly played tougher ones the last couple years.  Yes, I know the conference is brutal and RPI is not a concern but this is pretty laughable.

Look at JMUs this season.  Tremendous drop from last year and even more so from years before.  Where are the Tennessees, the Alabamas, etc from previous schedules.  I am sure there was (and is) a method to his madness but you could see last year that a marshmallow schedule did not have them ready for a trip to Baylor.

Well Auburn was scheduled to play JMU, but Dean cancelled it due to the awkwardness of having to play his former players. They are also going to Mary Nutter, but didn’t get a very challenging draw. I wish we were getting challenged a little more, but I do think it will be good to be able to get the younger pitchers some additional work.

He cares about this team.  He built this team and he has a good relationship with the University.  There are no outstanding issues.  The Title IX campus investigation concluded that there was no pattern of abuse.  In the end, his son broke the rules by having an inappropriate relationship with a player.  He chose to believe his son, which was his first and most troublesome mistake.

Yeah when Myers showed a clear blind douchebag loyalty to his douchebag son, I lost all respect for him.

To respect the man or not is an individual choice.  The young women on that team have an immense respect for the man.  They adore him and many of them still look to him in their personal lives for advice.  The picture painted, almost entirely by the opinion of one disgruntled former player, was not supported by the players currently on the team.  Everyone paid a price.  Fortunately, Mickey Dean has come in and been able to quickly get everyone pulling in the same direction and the future looks very bright.

I've got mad respect for the way you were able to use the word douche twice.  LOL

I always liked the guy. But turning a blind eye is inexcusable. Mad respect for your blind loyalties. Not really.

So are you saying that the Title IX investigation and outcome isn't valid?

So Auburn beating up on Troy 3-0 in 1st. Carlson has been illegal on more than half her pitches. It's so blatant as to be laughable. 

Crickets from Umpires.

Carlson definitely gains an advantage with her illegalness. They still aren't going to call it.

Corey's "indiscretions" with SEVERAL Auburn softball players is NOT the opinion of one disgruntled former player, and while Clint avoided the scrutiny of a formal investigation by resigning, it does not absolve him from the responsibility of enabling Corey to do what he did...

You would be correct.

First, ACE is a nice organization (not saying you are ACE certified, just an example), but it's not ACSM/NSCA/NASM who are considered the pinnacle of the fitness certifications.  But, fitness pros are like coaches - there are great ones and not so great ones.  If I'm stating a major opinion, and falsely stated based on peer-reviewed research, not what Jillian Michaels blogged today, or any day.  As a strength coach, power and Olympic lifting with a qualified coach - not just certified - is more beneficial to an athlete (notice it was not gender specific because it doesn't need to be stated) than the charlatans that scream "Pitchers can't perform overhead presses because it will destroy their shoulders!!!!!!"  Funny, I had a pitcher I trained that had chronic shoulder issues and taught her how to overhead press properly.  After a while (maybe 3 mos), no shoulder pain and an increase in riding speed of 5mph.  Not huge, but the fact that she broke into the 60's AND zero pain is a huge win.  Another pitcher with back issues?  Did I have her Prancercize?  Close...deadlifts with big bumper plates and scary chalk - and no weight belt!!! I must be out of my mind to do that.  Oh wait, eliminated back issues and improved posture/core strength, plus her technique brought her shoulders into neutral.  Yeah, that man-weight stuff is the devil! 

The issue is with the sheep that go to someone without vetting them.  Your kid has a D1 coach offering, and you're throwing your kid at them without asking one question while ignoring a D3 coach (I think you might be able to find a few that can teach the game greater than or equal to most D1 coaches) who can actually give your kid more money and has the major that your kid actually wants to study.  If it's a university's SC staff that is hurting kids, great, where is the data/printed stories and evidence of negligence.  Until then, it's inadmissible. 

Terp - your views of fitness and mine probably aren't in the same country, but I won't doubt yours if backed by actual science.  While I've been certified long enough to see fads come and go, as well as wondering why a co-worker left his good paying gym job to open some Cross-Fit gym - like that will catch on!  If the body is being properly challenged and prepared for activity, does it really matter what the method is?  Your "Sky is Falling" chirping is unfortunately convincing many people that iron is bad.  Bad information is bad. Bad coaching is bad.  So please, act like you just did a set and give it a rest.  The same goes for all your flawed statements.  Maybe, just maybe, there will be a time where you let go of your hatred of iron, men, and whatever else is bothering you, and you decide to investigate through real research, not just Wendy at the Y who hurt her knee doing silly box jumps because she didn't follow her trainer's advice.  That must mean box jumps are bad, too.  My apologies for the length, but you can only pack so much fertilizer before the bag breaks.  I would love to hear from any female trainers/strength coaches out there who actually like "lifting"...please?

5-0 Auburn over Troy. Carlson, Martin, and Swindle combine for the shutout.

Not a coach, but I LOVE to lift, and I OLD!!!  Yes I do Crossfit, but I also do OLY lifting.  There is NOTHING wrong with lifting if done correctly.

 Top 4 in the order continuing to get it done, especially Taylon Snow (.538) at the 3 and Justus Perry (.542) at the 4.  Even her ( JP's) outs are solidly hit.  Nice to see them come through after getting challenged in the 2nd game, especially McKayla coming in and just smoking through the lineup with 3 consecutive K's after Kaylee Carlson needed some help.

'Smoking" through the lineup?

Another solid day today for the 11-0 Tigers as they pummeled Maryland 12-1 in 5 innings and moving past stubborn (again) St. Francis 5-0.  The long balls are starting to become more common.  Justus Perry has her 3rd, Veach and Tannon Snow have 2 and Alyssa Rivera got her first today.  Taylon Snow already has 18 hits.   She is providing a lot of opportunity for Justus Perry, who is hitting .467 and has 17 RBI.   Two more games on Sunday vs. Maryland and Georgia State before heading out to California and much tougher competition.  Pitching under Mickey Duke continues to be aggressive and successful.  70 innings in with only 4 earned runs, 8 walks and and ERA of 0.40 to go with 75 K's.  McKayla is hitting 68 mph often and Kaylee is touching 70mph.  And the staff has become much more adept at throwing the change when appropriate.

What I don't get is the large quantity of games against teams that don't help them get ready for SEC competition.  Of the 70 innings pitched by the AU staff so far Carlson and Martin have pitched 60.  If those two are ground down to the bone by early April this early schedule will come back to haunt them.  

Perhaps this will be a test of the old-school truck tire flipping and tractor pulling S&C program.

Was curious about that myself. Scoring alot of runs but other than confidence building and early jacked up stats, Auburn hasn't seen single pitcher even close to what they will see come SEC time. As far as the pitchers,  Dusty you know this is classic Dean.

Huge difference if your coaching JMU and playing a lot of mid-majors w/SEC & PAC12 mixed in to get ready for CAA conference play than than coaching an SEC school and playing a lot of mid-majors to get ready for SEC play.

I wouldn't know enough about how coaches set schedules in advance but I would think a new coach could at least tweak the schedule a bit like keeping all the tournaments they're committed to but dropping the midweek games.

the starting middle infielders were both injured and sat out the Georgia State game.   The right fielder walked hers off and returned to action.
