They find it hard to comprehend Auburn's success.....

I have to say, I'm kind of squeamish about believing myself.  Gotten my hopes up too many times the last 20 years and now have this, waiting for the shoe to drop feeling.

Ready to lose that feeling this year and Make AU Great Again!

I've decided this feeling is all part of being an Auburn Fan.   I was watching the Auburn/Alabama game in the arena this year and refused to get totally excited until the clock was at 00, which was pretty ridiculous considering we were up two scores!!

Don't worry, it's looking like Bruce is going to have us as a perennial top 20 team sooner rather than later!

It's weird to say considering the 98-99 team went 29-4, but this may be the most talented AU team I've ever seen.  That 98-99 team was great and knew how to play, but they were also older.  This team is still young and has 2-3 guys with next level talent (and another two that can't play thanks to NCAA).  It's really, really fun to watch right now.

Pearl said recently we would lose some games. Just the type of game basketball is (cold shooting on a given night etc).what I really really hope does not happen, relative to his point, is our first SEC loss being at the hands of the evil ones.    Would love to know how those of you with basketball knowledge, think we match up against Bama.

Yes, I know we are going to drop some games but I REALLY, REALLY want us to go 2-0 this week.

In particular tomorrow night. I don't like how Avery has been able to pull top recruits and I want the entire conference, recruiting base, and world to know Bruce Pearl is the King of the state

We're going to handily defeat them. They're main big Donta Hall is out. The only quality thing about Bama is Sexton, and I don't believe he particularly cares about the university or the toothless fans or the Chimes or his teammates; he just wants to do what he does to cement his draft status. I don't think AJ is a particularly good coach (but seems to be a super guy), and his team doesn't have much chemistry. Bama has had a see-saw year with a "win one lose one" tendency. This past week they beat an ugly South Carolina team at home and an LSU team that was scheduled for a reality check. I think we win this one by 15-25 points, even with Sexton potentially going off for 30+ points. I know we are the better team, so if we can win at Knoxville and Starkville, we should win this one. I could be wrong, but I don't think I will be.

Dont sleep on them. I know they haven’t looked particularly impressive all year, but they have some good players besides Sexton. Key, Ingram, Petty can all make plays, and Avery Jr. seems to always hit a big shot or two. Plus, put them in their arena where they could get hot shooting and let us have an off night, and that’s a recipe for an easy home victory for them. 

We have to rebound well (They outrebounded LSU 40-24 last game), and we have to defend well as a team. Sexton presents a lot of problems because he’s difficult to keep out of the paint. He loves to get downhill, and that allows him to create for himself and for others or get himself to the FT line where he’s really good.

Not sleeping on anyone. Their team hasn't consistently performed up to their level of individual skill sets and Auburn has. Im not saying Bama can't win; I'm saying they won't win. I like the Tigers in this one.
