Praise for Pawlowski





Kendall Rogers from Yahoo Sports lists 10 Coaches that are having positive impacts on their programs. Including one of our favorites:

John Pawlowski, Auburn

How he got here: The Tigers were attracted to Pawlowski a couple years ago because of his ability to make College of Charleston a consistent winner. Well, it didn’t take Pawlowski long to bring a winning attitude to the plains. Pawlowski guided the program to 31 wins in his first season, but took a huge step forward in ’10 with the program’s first SEC tournament appearance since ’03 and an NCAA regional appearance. AU fell short of reaching the CWS, but a statement already was made. Pawlowski plans to have the Tigers competing for big things in the future. AU finished the ’10 campaign with an impressive 43-21 record.

Goal One on the season was making it to Hoover. Everything else, from the Regional Host to the Creede Simpson heroics, was just icing on the cake.

Now the real task begins; molding the future Auburn teams in Pawlowski teams. That means a slow shift from the ridiculous home runs numbers to a small ball approach. A focus on quality pitching and using pitching matchups competently.

Most Auburn fans didn't know what to expect when CJP was hired. Now we do, and personally, I couldn't be happier with the direction of the program.
