Bodda Getta Daily Brew 5/7: Better Than an Ambush Makeover

AMBUSH dates/locations released for alumni tour with guests such as Hugh Freeze and Bruce Pearl

Good Morning, Auburn Family. AMBUSH, the Auburn Alumni Association's annual engagement tour, will feature four locations in 2024 and include appearances from Auburn head football coach Hugh Freeze, head men's basketball coach Bruce Pearl, Athletics Director John Cohen, and other guests.

The tour will provide a social meet-and-greet with alumni and, in the process, help raise scholarship funds for future generations of Auburn students.

⇢ This is no ambush, but we do highly suggest you go here for more info.

⛳️ Women’s golf has the lead on day one of the NCAA Auburn Regional
🎥 Talking Tigers With Scott Sullivan, Pt. 2, is now on WarEagle+
🐅 And much, much more!


Talking Tigers - Scott Sullivan (Pt 2)
He came to Auburn as a walk-on pitcher from Marion Military Academy. Scott Sullivan had never been to the Plains and didn’t know who Hal Baird was. The intent was for Sullivan to become the batting practice pitcher, no more. Sullivan’s break came when Baird saw him throw a ball from the outfield…sidearm. Thus began Sullivan’s career as a top-notch reliever at Auburn, followed by a 10-year career in Major League Baseball.

Sullivan and former Auburn Basketball player and coach Larry Chapman were recently inducted into the Alabama Sports Hall of Fame. This Talking Tigers Podcast features part two of Scott Sullivan’s remarkable story.


🔼 A Stroke of Genius. No. 7 Auburn fired an opening round of 290 (+2) on Monday at the NCAA Auburn Regional. The Tigers currently have the lead by three strokes over No. 2 South Carolina. Megan Schofill is tied for the individual lead after shooting 3-under (69) in the first round.

Schofill's impressive opening round featured a couple of birdies on the front nine but was highlighted by an eagle on 16, a par 5. With 215 yards into the hole following her drive, the fifth-year senior hit a hybrid to around 10 feet before sinking the putt [⇢ check out the impressive putt on X ⛳️]. The round marked Schofill's 14th round under par this season.

🔼 This Week in Auburn Baseball. Sunday's win marked head coach Butch Thompson's 100th career SEC win … the last two games in the series vs. Ole Miss marked Auburn's 11th and 12th games in SEC play decided by one or two runs … the walk-off win was the team's second of the season with the other being a walk-off homer from Mason Maners vs. Austin Peay … the team's 15 hits in the series finale were the second most in a game this season (17 at Texas A&M on Mar. 30)…

Answer: Auburn kicked off the 2023 AMBUSH tour in Atlanta, Georgia.

Atlanta is home to thousands of alumni and some of the most fertile recruiting grounds in college athletics. 

"From a recruiting standpoint, this has been unbelievable for us," said men's basketball coach Bruce Pearl last year during the tour. "They play great basketball here. We've had six players from Atlanta drafted in the last six years.”

🐅 Have a great Tuesday, y’all
