Your weekend overview
So what did we miss?
- Auburn's baseball team continued its march toward Hoover (for the first time in six years) with a series win at Arkansas. The Tigers hit eight homers during the weekend and starter Grant Dayton was filthy on Sunday. He struck out 10 batters and allowed two runs in seven innings.
The team now is 30-15 overall and 12-9 in SEC play.
The team plays last-place Mississippi State and a disappointing Tennessee team at Plainsman Park during the next two weekends. Series wins there all but lock up a postseason bid.
- Not directly Auburn-related, but the NCAA rules committee will meet in Indianapolis today. Among the items they'll review: Installing a charge/block arc near the basket (a la the NBA) that prevents players from camping under the basket in an effort to draw charges.
- The Tiger Trek caravan rolls into Montgomery tonight. It's run through the Montgomery Auburn Club and replaces the big summer b-b-q event we used to attend in July or August. Gene Chizik will be there. Two people emailed to say Tony Barbee would be there as well, but a check with basketball publicist Chuck Gallina revealed that Barbee is in Texas today.
