Will history repeat itself for Auburn baseball in College World Series?

Barbecue is Butch Thompson’s worst fear right now.

Before the College World Series, the Auburn baseball coach was adamant that just being here was not enough. Not this time. Not after Auburn’s 2019 run ended with two consecutive losses in Omaha, Nebraska.

In what has turned out to be a pleasantly surprising and wholly satisfying season for Auburn fans, Thompson has always aimed high.

He didn’t want “two and a barbecue” again.

There’s no shame in the potential ending Auburn (42-21) faces Monday (1 pm CT, ESPN) against Stanford after a 5-1 loss to Ole Miss on Saturday, but the idea of ​​history repeating itself casts the dark shadow.

And what a fitting opponent for the topic of history. It will be Auburn’s 15th College World Series game, and the fifth against Stanford. The Cardinal have won all four so far.
