Nell Fortner speaks

Hey everyone. Nell is previewing her season.

  • Reneisha "ReRe" Hobbs has torn an ACL and is out for the season. She was projected starter at SF.

  • Morgan Jennings, the projected starter at PG, tore her ACL this summer and is out until at least January.

  • Morgan Tolles, the team's most-hyped freshman, will have to start at PG.

  • On how the injuries change the team's identity: ``We're still going to run as much as we can. We're going to have more of an inside presence. We'll have that opportunity this year. We'll still push the ball. We'll never get away from that totally."

  • On getting PF/C Jordan Greenleaf back from an ACL injury: "We missed her last year. She's such a smart player. She just has a presence about her."

  • On her expectation for Morgan Tolles: "To be as solid of a point guard as she can bem, not turn the ball over and run the team. We'll have to go through the experience of being a point guard at this level. She is a highly fit player. As long as she can progress, she'll see a lot of minutes on the floor."

  • She believes Mississippi State is the SEC's team to beat this season.

  • "You're looking at a team that's ready to prove themselves. Practice have been ... they've been going to incredibly hard. We've progressed quickly, but we still have a lot of inexperience on the floor. This is the hardest-working team I've had here at Auburn."

台灣處亞熱帶最適於它的繁殖,危害最嚴重的有家白蟻及大和白蟻。在每年四月至九月間,一大群白蟻集體飛出巢穴追逐(颱風或大雨來臨之前)雌雄配對後,迅速地脫落翅膀, ... 在台灣,住的房子雖多為鋼筋水泥,但早期居住的木造房子,就常受到白蟻的侵蝕。

DANG even in women's basketball if we didn't have bad luck we would have no luck at all.

Sucks about Hobbs. Too bad for her. How is the team suppose to be this year? Returning a lot off of last year's good team or losing a lot?

Not a big women's basketball fan, usually, unless it's Auburn playing. They were fun to watch last year. They've got big, important shoes to fill, this year. Good luck, Tigers!
