With the start of the 2013 athletic season, we as Auburn fans, can hope against hope that the billboard campaign, "It's A New Day" will ring true.
Malzahn has already brought a spark to the football field, with both the recruits that were signed and the promise of offensive fireworks.
The hiring of Sunny Golloway may still be too soon to say how the baseball season will go. Golloway brings a rather impressive 681-337-1 record to the Plains, but hurt feelings in Norman may raise some questions.
Tony Barbee has yet to live up to the hype or expectations on the hardwood, despite a $90+ million arena. His 35-52 record in his 3 years at the helm is not impressive and a 12-32 SEC record is surely not.
Now comes word that Jerome Seagers, who transferred from Rutgers to Auburn following the Mike Rice fiasco, has now decided after one month, that he wants to be closer to home.
The Auburn women's basketball program, under coach Terri Williams-Flournoy, seems to be headed for higher ground. A solid recruiting effort and a WNIT appearance should play well in the coming season.
The hiring of Clint Myers from Arizona State as the women's softball coach should pay immediate dividends. Myers complied a stellar 427-102 record in eight seasons in Tempe and captured 2 National Titles.
Recruiting will need to improve in order to bring that same success to the Jane B. Moore Softball Complex.
I stand with all of my fellow Tigers and proclaim that this is indeed.....A NEW DAY!!!!!!
