Tough road non-conference games (at Coastal Carolina, at MTSU, at Xavier) plus the Diamond Head Classic (New Mexico, Harvard, Oklahoma, BYU, UNI) all before SEC play. It is imperative that this team develops an identity early and trust the coaching staff if they want to be successful this season. With key position players in their second year in the system, plus a talented recruiting class (arguably the best recruiting class in Auburn Basketball history) the potential remains there. All in all I think we see a better overall team play, but that may not necessarily translate in W and Ls this season. I think Auburn finishes 13-17 and 7-11 in conference play. What are your thoughts? ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________
  4. LINK Devin Waddell, a Chemical Engineering student, and former walk-on for the basketball team earned a scholarship for next season. Devin is a senior. “Sometimes you have to do things the right way, just because it’s the right thing to do, not because there’s going to be any kind of award or special benefit,” Pearl said. “I’m talking about Devin Waddell. Devin was a walk-on student athlete here at Auburn a year ago. An engineer, an outstanding student, athlete, worked as hard as any of the guys on scholarship and was always ready when the opportunity presented itself..."
  5. Auburn's Official Website updated their basketball roster. Danjel Purifoy is not listed on the roster. Tahj Shamsid-Deen went from 170 lbs. to 175 lbs. +5 T.J. Lang went from 193 lbs. to 200 lbs. +7 Cinmeon Bowers went from 278 lbs. to 260 lbs. -18 Jordon Granger went from 210 lbs. to 220 lbs. +10 Trayvonn Reed went from 230 lbs to 245 lbs. +15 With it still not being August, I expect these numbers to change. It will be interesting to see the development between now and when camp starts in the fall.

    Nick Marshall just put us in the top seven. How great would that be if we had another Nick Marshall at Auburn. http://247sports.com/Bolt/Nick-Marshalls-list-at-seven-30559528

  9. Auburn to switch to Nike and Barbee to return. Wow. Just wow. #incrediblefutility
  10. Hi everyone! I would like to invite you all to check out my new project, a database to document all the previous uniforms worn by Auburn in the basketball program. I have always been interested in uniforms (I wrote a post last season about football uniform changes, and am currently compiling one for this coming season). And I absolutely love Auburn basketball. Unfortunately, Auburn basketball is so poorly documented, especially in photos. In addition to just looking at my project, I ask you to also help me out. If you have any information, especially (color) photographs, about the uniforms worn prior to the 2006 season, I would greatly appreciate it if you would share with me. The 2001-2006 seasons are very difficult to find pictures on. I hope you enjoy my work, and can help me out in the future. http://auburnuniforms.blogspot.com/ War Eagle!
  11. So I grew up in Kentucky. Have been a Kentucky basketball fan my entire life. Then I went to school at Auburn and became and even bigger AU football fan than I am a Kentucky basketball fan. It just hit me today how similar this situation is to when Rick Pitino left Kentucky after the 1997 season to go the Boston Celtics. We had just won the 1996 NC and lost in the 1997 NC game to a good Arizona team. In comes Tubby Smith and we win the 1998 NC. For the time, Tubby is the greatest thing since sliced bread. We lose our beloved Pitino and yet our new coach comes in and still delivers an NC. Life couldn't be better. After that season Kentucky continued to get worse and worse under Smith. He just couldn't coach. He was great for the city of Lexington, he donated money to schools, he honestly helped bridge racial gaps. He was a really good guy. He just couldn't coach. Kentucky let him stick around until he drove the basketball program into the ground. After a brief and nasty relationship with Billy Gillespie, Kentucky landed John Calipari and it made all the difference in the world. He brought home a NC in 2012. My point is, Auburn is and always will be great and our primary love will always be football. Same as Kentucky is with basketball. Right now, Auburn is in the Tubby Smith Era of football. New coach brings home championship. Is instantly beloved. CGC is a great man who I would love to have as a brother, father, father-in-law. But it appears he just can't coach. If Auburn continues to let the program go down the path its heading, its going to be a long road to recovery, just like Kentucky basketball. Tubby won it with Pitino's players, CGC won it with Cam Newton and Nick Fairley. I really hope our beloved Tigers don't suffer for as long as my Wildcats did.
