    A warning about SEC Play

    I don't believe we are going to "look" like we are as good of a team as last season, even though I do believe this team could beat last year's team. Almost every team in the SEC has at least a very decent squad capable of winning a game or two in the NCAA tournament. The average team in the SEC went about 9-3 in the non conference this season. That is really good when your conference is playing in Maui, playing Kansas and Gonzaga, Duke twice, Arizona State, NC State, Florida State, and on and on.... The worst non conference record in our league was achieved by South Carolina at 5-7, and that team just went to Gainesville and beat Florida, a team that went 8-4. Texas A&M went 6-5 in the non-conference, and just about beat Arkansas, a team that went 9-3 and could very well make the NCAA tournament. Ole Miss could be a threat this season as well. They went into Nashville and beat a really good Vandy team- one that handled Arizona State about a month ago by 15. Of course, Alabama also knocked off #13 Kentucky over the weekend as well. I don't say this for gloom and doom purposes, I say this as a caution to the pessimists on the board- the league is insanely competitive this year. We will win some games that we should be underdogs in, and we will probably lose a few games that we should be favorites in. The moral of the story is don't get in an uproar if we lose a game we "should've won." Tennessee may be the only team that can really expected to be the favorite in most every one of their games. We are probably just as good as Tennessee, but we haven't quite found it yet. Be patient with this Auburn team, and remember that this is an incredibly challenging league this season. There are really only 2 teams that we can really feel comfortable that we will beat pretty easily. We will be favored in most of the rest, but we will lose some. The SEC is going to get a ton of teams in the tournament this year, methinks, and if we don't go 14-4, that does not mean we have regressed. We have built a program up to a level of relevance. Yes, the next step is playing for championships, but even the established champions are being tested in the SEC this season. Don't jump off the plane at the first sign of turbulence. War Eagle.

    The starting lineup

    I agree completely. That’s the same starting lineup I said. Wiley is big and lumbering. Great for a change of pace and great as a rebounding threat throughout the game, but we play more dominant and more to our style with Mac in with the starters.

    This name has been thrown around. Best chance remaining to get another OT in here.

    2019 3* RB DJ Williams Commits to AU!!!

    I just know it gets annoying when you put something right in front of someone's face and they still ask where it is. I'm not great about looking back through things on the forum but I'll attempt to do so more!

    Does ESPN announce new rankings today? I saw DJ might get a huge boost in espn rankings.

    The starting lineup

    Keep it the same except Mac goes in at the 5 to start: Harper Brown Doughty Chuma Mac We Need to play smaller like last season and throw Wiley in just to give a different look. Dunbar has played really well coming off bench

    I would love Hampton to come in and be a dual sport athlete with baseball. That would be so awesome to see again.

    Seeing him and Okoro at Auburn would be special

    Auburn drops to 14

    Focused and aggressive. We are letting the opponent dictate the flow of the game when we go on the road. We've got to drive to the basket more away from home. Have to.

    Auburn drops to 14

    They lost to Texas Southern by 15 at home. TSU is 7-9. They have a few impressive wins but also have taken L's against teams like Lamar, Tulane, Evansville, and Prairie View. I feel good about what we should be able to do, but I probably won't relax about the game until it's over and we've got more points.

    Big news about Bell. Softens the blow of bad OL recruiting over the last few years a tad if we bring in 3 competent linemen in this class.

    Hope he all the sudden just starts coming on. His talent would be great to have, especially if he can develop driving to the basket more ie Mustapha Heron
  13. Butch has certainly done an amazing job with this program and bringing it to a threatening presence in the SEC. Next step is Omaha, let's get there

    Auburn drops to 14

    Yep. All sounds about right. A&M game would be a great opportunity to get a road SEC win. Hopefully we keep the momentum from the UGA game going.

    Patient Purifoy Pissed

    I wish he was seeing a few minutes. Hate that he’s all over social media with this crap though. He’s a great talent and I hope it works out and he becomes one of the best to play here, but don’t like his social media stuff. Getting all this “advice” from people on FB.

    Men vs. Georgia game thread

    Agreed on all points except for tournament hopes. Still think we’ll be okay there. We’ve got wins over Washington, Arizona, and Murray State in non-conferenc, who all are in the conversation for the tournament right now. Losses are to 3 tournament teams by less than 10 points per game. Think we’re still in pretty comfortably, but we can’t implode in the SEC

    Two garbage time threes near the end so it’s a little better than that

    Done this too many times already this season. Either get a lead and start relaxing, or waiting till we get down by 10+ to get motivated again. Bruce gotta keep the guys engaged

    Harper pressing a little. The lanky UGA guys are all going right to him on the drive. Dish it off for an easy jam

    Tired of college basketball officiating. There’s so much inconsistency in games. Pick the level of contact you’re going to call and call that the whole game.

    Didn’t see his IG comments- can’t find them because it looks like he deleted social media. Any insight?
