Thanks...gotta admit that the line-up is quite a bit more impressive/encouraging than 4 or 5 months ago.

Looking for the NIT at worst now. With the added firepower/ talent and coaching skill we should be able beat a number of those teams that slipped by us late in the season.

Excellent job with this Basketball spread sheet. Not to be nitpicky but I never understood why you targeted Purchase for redshirt. No one redshirts in basketball anymore except for injury. if Purchase was redshirted you could pretty much guarantee he would not be on the squad next year, almost same as asking someone to leave the program as I understand it.

I have never been a huge fan of basketball, but am excited about the direction we going with the coaching staff and players. We might not win 20 games this season, but the foundation is in place for Auburn to become an elite program in the SEC and national.
