Threat Level: Huddy
A text from a buddy of mine got me thinking about the Auburn Threat Level. We’ve been stuck at Threat Level Hurt for a while and I think it was an apt threat level. We had power, we had decent pitching. Anyway, my buddy wanted to know if Auburn swept Tennessee would I raise Auburn to Threat Level Huddy (the highest of the scale). If we had swept? Yes. However, Auburn didn’t sweep. However, we DID sweep Ole Miss which to me is more impressive than sweeping UT. So we raise the Threat Level:
Threat Level Huddy Named for Tim Hudson. Current Major Leaguer and the driving force behind Auburn's best baseball season (1997). Team has all the elements and tools needed to make it to the College World Series. Majority of Players are playing at an All-SEC and All American level.
Why? Well for starters the sweep of Ole Miss has pretty much cemented Auburn’s status as a Regional Host:
What a job Auburn coach John Pawlowski has done this season. The Tigers have overachieved throughout the spring. AU went on the road over the weekend and swept Mississippi. As a result, the Tigers are now 39-17 and finished SEC play with a fantastic 20-10 record. AU will be hosting a regional.
Auburn has also raised it’s Rivals Ranking to #12.
The SEC Awards will be coming out soon and I look forward to Auburn having both the Player of the Year and Coach of the Year on the same team. War Eagle.
