They had 3 hitting coaches in a span of 4 months last year.  Dean's hitting coach started after the new year.  Wasn't a surprise they struggled hitting.  I don't have a dog in the fight.  All I'm saying is that Dean came into a tough situation and it's going to take time to get the program how I'm sure he wants it.  He's got talent there to work with there however.

They are working on stepping and throwing without the ball and doing long toss


This is good coaching..........Much, much better than fielding balls without proper technique..........

Instead of denigrating the coach for this, he should be commended...........And, teaching hitting needs to be relegated to just one coach - and one only..............So, if Dean is gonna do it, that's much better than teaching it by committee, no matter who the committee is............

Blue dog you have lost it. His whole approach is a joke. The only reason they won as many games as they did was do to the talent before he got there. This year is going to get real interesting. Last year when the girls lost he would throw them under the bus and the sad fact is he didnt have them ready to play. He would be smart to let Emily coach the infield and work with the hitters. She is better than any other assist. coach he has on staff. I wish the girls luck this year they are going to need it with this knucklehead. They would have done better to give Glasco the head coaching job.

I'm a Glasco fan and I said at the time that Auburn should give Glasco the job..........They didn't and Glasco landed on his feet in a good situation at UL and he's doing just fine............ 

We'll see how Dean's approach at Auburn is gonna work............I'm just saying, teaching the fundamentals is what it sounds like to me he's doing...........And, if so, that's what he needs to do.............He may not be a hitting guy, but, he seems to be taking charge and that's a big part of the process............And, especially nowadays with so many players acting like snowflakes.............Make 'em prove they wanna do it the right way or let 'em move on............Take a dedicated team to the games............

You don't win on talent alone...........No team does..........If they did, Texas would have won some championships............

Auburn will have a good, competitive softball team this coming season. CMD has been working hard as have the young ladies and other coaches. Looking forward to attending the fall games and witness the progress. Wow I said something positive, imagine that on a message board!

I don't know how good or bad Emily is at coaching the infield looking at her fielding numbers she had a nice career defensively.

I would bet my house that Emily doesn't know half about infield defense than Eddy Ketelhut.  I can't think of two many people that do.

To that point MD's JMU teams had some of the top defenders at their position and lead the country at times at defense efficiency.  But I am sure that was only bc of the conf and the pitching.  Even though JMU dominated every Power 5 conf expect the SEC where they were respectable.

As far as your knucklehead comment, MD was 2-1 vs The Meyer group.  Would have been 3-0 if he would have pitched Good in both games at Auburn.  

I know you guys really like to blame MD for the hitting but in the game Good pitched all the great Meyer coaching could muster was 1 miss hit ball over the 1st basemans head for a hit.  I think Auburn had one ball even get to the outfield.  By any Auburn's fan standards I think everyone would agree the 17 team was much more talented on that side of the ball than the 2018 team.

MD won at JMU bc he was able to get 2 elite level pitchers and some very nice supporting players.  That is the same formula every coach in the country uses, and some of the very top teams are able to get elite pitchers and some elite players.  If Dean does that at Auburn he will win there as well.

Hmmm. Following either of what, the two preeminent hitting gurus in college softball, doesn't sound like that sweet of a deal to me. lol I'd think you would want to be the second coach in there after either of those two. I do think Glasco was a great hire but there's little chance he will reach the heights the Lotiefs did at UL. It will be interesting to watch though.

Kelley Lynch was on her official visit to Washington this weekend. Had a great time. 

What that means in two months, who knows....

Kelley is suppose to go on multiple visits to other SEC programs over the next couple months which includes Alabama, Florida, LSU, and FSU (ACC).

Did I miss something?  Is she really that good?  Are all of those schools really recruiting her or is this something that she or her people is putting out in regards to all of those visits?  Kind of reminds me of the hype surrounding Tamara Statman a couple of years ago.

I noticed it had not been discussed, but Auburn lost their first Fall game on Friday to Wallace Community College in Dothan. I know there are many on here that have emphasized that Dean deserves time and I tend to agree, but losing to a community college is unacceptable for any D1 coach.

I think Dean and staff have done a very good job.  They inherited a mess.  Going 41-19 with what they came into should not be overlooked.

The Washington coaches were here for one of Kelley’s playoff games and one of her close friends on her State and National Champion HS team is going to Washington.

She never really considered Georgia, Lu kinda move on from her and looked else where from the get go.  

from what I've been told Kelley isn't a big fan of the new coaches at Auburn. 

I have no doubt the Washington coaches/school is her favorite but due to distance away its a big factor. 

We shall see though.
