Welcome to another edition of getting to know your All-Sports Overlords! Today, we line up the Auburn Tigers under the bulletted microscope to see where they shine and perhaps where they are lackluster. As always, we will review the last three years of records for each of the sports which Mizzou will be bringing to the SEC starting in July. And now, thanks to some feedback, I have also included Mizzou's finish right along side for comparison purposes. Yes yes, I know...you are more than welcome...I do this all for you. Mizzou's information will appear first (in bold and italics and in parenthesis)

Summary:

I recall Auburn's men being a top program in the pool, and this proved that out, at least from a conference standpoint. They may be a bit beyond their national heights, but it is tough to argue with consistent, top-10 finishes, and clearly the same goes for their women's team. Elsewhere, I suppose I was a little surprised to see Auburn lagging a little behind where I thought they might be. They have had some good squads in some sports, but have also had quick drops (baseball and X-country pop up a bit). But as it still pertains to baseball, it is awesome that THIS exists on their website.
