    A lot of uneasy folks on the Plains right now.

    Less than eight weeks after Myers, 65, agreed to a three-year contract extension through 2023, pending approval by Auburn's Board of Trustees, the school announced his retirement Wednesday night. "After 40 years of coaching and reflecting on the importance of spending quality time with my wife, my children, and my grandchildren, I have decided to retire from a sport that I love dearly and which has brought so much joy to me," Myers said in a release.
    We'll see how your perspective changes, when you hit 65.

    (For some of us, it just made us worse to deal with than we already were.)

    When people continue to ask about the sudden resignation of your assistant coach and son, it makes retirement that much more attractive.

    What's the scoop on the softball coach and son? Pretty abrupt decision to retire just after you signed a contract extension. Something doesn't pass the smell test.

    His son resigned abruptly midseason. That, along with AU having scrubbed his coaching profile in a hurry, means he was likely participating in some, uh, extra coaching, so to speak.

    Clint's motives are pretty much unknown. Could be his son's screw up has taken a real toll on him, could be he's just exhausted and wants to enjoy retirement. Who really knows that this point? My money is on the former though.

    It sucks, but them's the breaks.

    Just hoping Jay makes a good hire. We've good facilities, can pay well and a talented roster (for now), so hopefully it's a good one. Otherwise we simply fade back into mediocrity.

    The question that continued to arise was what did Clint know about Corey's "extra coaching" and when did he know it? Rumors were widespread around campus for a significant period of time about Corey's coaching clinic. All the players knew.

    Matter of fact it was the players confronting Clint about Corey's "extra coaching" that led to Corey's sudden resignation.

    There was some additional fall out around this that I won't get into.

    Suffice it to say there are several unanswered questions around this situation. And if it is attorneys asking the questions, it could get mighty uncomfortable.

    In an ideal world Auburn would lose to Georgia Southern and then crush Clemson

    Meyers signed an extension till 2023. he even told people close to the program that he would be around for another 2-3 years.

    it doesn't add up. furthermore, and who really knows, an insider on ITAT states that an ESPN special will be out regarding the auburn softball program during Myer's tenure. we shall see...

    That makes sense regarding the timing. Wonder what kind of dirt they have.

    (NO, Artie Johnson is NOT a notzy.)

    So, it looks like the ol' "I just wanna spend time with the fambly" excuse doesn't work. Again. Maybe.

    Makes the rest of us old coots look equally stupid.

    Which we very well may be...............shuffling down the road to dementia.................

    (Just imagine how insufferable I might get, when that starts to set in!)
