I was able to watch much of the final game of the Auburn regional while I was stuck in my office last night. As terrible as the previous game was to watch, this one was pretty good aside from the homer announcers from Auburn; they were still terrible. Clemson pulled out to an early lead and countered all the subsequent moves made by Auburn. In particular, Clemson forced Auburn to leave 12 runners stranded on base. Clemson left only 5 on base.
Clemson will host Alabama for their super regional games.
The bad news of the night from the football fan’s perspective is Kyle Parker’s draft position. He was taken as the number 26 pick by Colorado. Everyone expects this to mean buh-bye. If KP does end his college football career at this point, the best thing the Tigers will have going for them will be the low level of expectations for the season.
