Did you hear that pop?/Baseball updates

Hey everyone. Mississippi State, which finished behind your Auburn Tigers (and lost to them twice), has punched its ticket to the NCAA Tournament. Meo Stansbury's husband guided his team past Tennessee in the SEC final, 64-61.

What does that have to do with Auburn?

Well, that's probably a wrap on the Tigers' NCAA hopes. Both Joe Lunardi (ESPN) and Jerry Palm (CollegeRPI.com) left Jeff Lebo's boys off their proposed brackets ... and that was before MSU earned the unexpected bid.

Barring some completely unforeseen development, Auburn will make the National Invitation Tournament as a top-three seed.


BASEBALL UPDATE:
Auburn def. Tennessee, 8-5 (game one)
Tennessee def. Auburn, 7-1 (game two)
**Tigers hit four homers in Game One. Now up to 39 this season.
**Tigers saw their 11-game winning streak broken.
**Tigers now are 13-5, 2-1.

UAB, Georgetown, Notre Dame and Florida (again) top my list of teams I'd like Auburn to beat down in front of a rowdy 6,000 fans in the NIT.

MIKE SLIVE NEEDS TO PULL SOME STRINGS AND SEND THESE LITTLE SAN DIEGO ST. SCHOOLS PACKING.

I would love to beat Georgetown.

Yeah, the NIT will be ripe with schools that would be really fun to beat!

MSG, here we come.

At least UAT is not even in the conversation! All that talent they have up there is just sitting there, wasting away, and deciding when they are going to declare for the draft and not get drafted like all the losers before them.

War Eagle!

As much as I hate it, we did this to ourselves by losing to Mercer, Dayton and N. Iowa. If those losses were to Gonzaga, Kansas and Memphis we would be in. Tennessee figured that out.

double headers are 7 innings, right?

Hubs coming in to close the seventh.

Blogger barkley for governor said...

Jim, I think it also may have something to do with the fact that we have Auburn across the front of our jersey. No respect.

2:55 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Tennessee has runners on 1st and 3rd, no outs.

2:55 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

One down.

2:56 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Now on 2nd and 3rd.

You're right Barkley. It doesn't help that we were on national TV once this year. UT was on at least 10 times.

2:59 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

One run in on a sac fly. Two down.

2:59 PM

Auburn wins, 8-5.

Thanks Jay G!

any interesting stats from game one?

Four dongs ... now 39 this season.

3:04 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Ben Jones went 3-for-4 with a double and an RBI.

3:05 PM  
Blogger Jim in Scranton said...

Barkley, I don't think lack of respect was limited to just Auburn though. It was the entire SEC west. Lunardi said that we were in the weaker division of a below average conference. But the facts say that the west went 18-18 against the east in the regular season, had 3 of the 4 semifinalists and winner of the tourny.

3:11 PM  
Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

Ben Jones is having a good week.


4 Ding Dongs is good...Despite the fact that I prefer good pitching to hitting, I'm loving the 2008 Florid Marlins being reincarnated as Auburn.

BEC Home games in the NIT tourny should bring 10's of rabid fans.

A crab sandwich on the harbor in San Diego does tend to ease the pain of not going to the Dance. Even if we had won Saturday and lost to State today, we would be on the outside looking in. 'Dems da breaks.

Overall record now?

Jet...ya gotta eat fish tacos while in San Diego. The best ones have fried fish on a flour tortilla with cabbage and a white "baja" sauce. Ask around for recommendations. The locals are proud of their fish tacos and will gladly provide eatery choices.

I've never met a fishy taco that I didn't like.

PF....I got ya, but I ain't going there....I fear the banhammer

Fish Taco always gets an immature laugh out of me...probably always will.

3:54 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Auburn now is on Lunardi's "next four out" category.

Not looking good for the Lebos.

4:03 PM  
Blogger FearlessFreep said...

Call it sour persimmons if you will, but I think hosting a first-round NIT game against a 'name' school, hopefully in front of an enthusiastic semi-large home crowd, would be better off for the program than flying to Portland OR and getting beat by Purdue by double digits on the first day.

Hoopie ... That's tomorrow's lunch plan.

What would our seed have been if we had gotten in 10-12ish?

jhag, it probably have been 12
