    Men vs. Ole Miss game thread

    When you don't have a strong inside presence, offensively and defensively, you are putting all the pressure on your outside guys. Only Okeke showed up for this game. Even McLemore is shooting more from the outside and is kinda invisible inside. You can win some games shooting 3s, but if that's all ya got, you ain't got enough.

    But as I predicted, this is a loss for AU. UK and UT are also loses. The question is, can AU finish 5-3?

    Ain't blaming this on CBP. This is all on the team -- meaning not an individual player, but the team as a whole. Okeke was the only one who stepped up, but one player does not a team make.

    AU explaining why they should be an 11 seed. Waiting to see why my Tigers should be seeded any higher.

    How about we all just let the other team shoot whatever they want with time running out, without defending? Because, if they score, who cares, right?

    As the old adage goes, you can't win if you don't score more than the other team. The end. Period.

    Waiting for AU to actually appear on the court.

    So last time, Ole Miss won by 15. How much does Ole Miss win by tonight? Auburn did not come to play.

    Awesome games tonight

    LSU goes into Rupp arena and pulls off the upset. LSU winning on the road all season. They've been ranked too low all season. Maybe now they will get some respect in the rankings. Elsewhere, Louisville had a 23 point lead on Duke, and then just sh*t their pants and blew it. Not really a good game as a viewer, since it really wasn't competitive down the stretch. Louisville just handed the ball to Duke over and over and said "go score." And then there was Miss State vs Bama in Tuscaloosa. A non-game. Auburn better strap on their big boy shorts if they want to beat MSU in a couple of weeks.

    Calvin Ashley Transferring

    Gus said that the OL is not a problem and he'll sign a whole bunch of OL guys in the 2020 recruiting class. So obviously, this does not matter.

    Wonder if anyone will actually want to pick him up as a transfer. It's not like he was stuck behind elite OL players. Well, if he does get a chance elsewhere, good luck to him.

    Rest of the way

    Should Win - Vandy, Arkansas, Bama and UGA Could Win (maybe) - MSU (beat AU by 8 ) and Ole Miss (beat Auburn by 15) Won't win - UK and UT Being optimistic, I think AU beats MSU. But I think AU likely loses to Ole Miss. If that's the way it plays out, that's 5-3 down the stretch. Auburn will be a mid/lower seed in the SEC championship. The NCAA tourney selection committee will see those games as well. If Auburn can pull off a couple of wins in the SEC tourney against higher-seeded teams, that would improve AU's seed in the NCAA.

    Men at LSU - game thread

    Well, the thing is, to be a really competitive program, you always beat the teams below 600 in the league on the road. You always beat the teams below 800 at home. Auburn ain't there yet. Auburn cannot yet beat Miss State and Ole Miss on the road. Can we beat them at home? We are gonna find out. We know that we cannot beat UK at home, and surely not in Lexington, and Auburn's chances vs UT .... um, not 50/50. We can beat UF at home, but in Gainesville? Bama at home, but in Tuscaloosa? Good teams win on the road. Auburn is not there this year. This is not a criticism of Auburn players or coaches, it is just reality. Auburn is just not yet capable of beating teams like LSU, Ole Miss, and Miss State on the road, much less UT and UK. And like it or not, a big factor is the lack of talented size. That's just my opinion, but I've been watching college BB for more than 35 years, and that is my observation.
