Anyone heard an update on AF’s status? We should be loaded once we get him back.

I think he can be cleared around mid-December, and if so, then he will need practice to get ready for actual play.

I expect late December(start of SEC) or sometime early January.

Okay, I'm only saying this because I see it so frequently and it's the kid's name...it's Flanigan. Not Flanagan, but Flanigan. That's kinda like if everyone had been going on about Cam Newtun in 2010. Sure, that's the way it sounds, but, again, this is a star player... whose father also played at Auburn a quarter century ago, and is currently an assistant coach of Bruce Pearl's... I feel like we should be doing better with this.

I’m glad you said something finally. Phlanaguin deserves better.

@Rednilla Relax man. Most of us are on the message boards from our phones and we all know our phones auto correct words even as posts are being submitted. Take the high road & chalk it up to phone error.

Bruce has a lot of options with this team. He can go big, small, defense, shooters, etc depending on the opposition or the situation. We are blessed to have this depth and flexibility. Pray for no more injuries.

It happens so frequently that I find it difficult to believe many people actually know his name. You'll have to forgive me for being a bit sensitive about it, considering the misspellings I've had of my last name through the years.

Besides, do phones actually change Flanigan to Flanagan? There's a Flanigan's restaurant, and the name is 57 times more likely to be spelled with an 'i' than with an 'a' in the United States, according to mynamestats.com. There's no reason for phones to be making that mistake, unless the user has manually put in the wrong spelling multiple times... in which case, I think it makes sense to inform them that they are spelling it the wrong way. I let an awful lot of crap go in online discussion because it IS online discussion, but, again, this is our star player's last name, and people are constantly spelling it a MUCH less common way just because of autocorrect? Come on now.

My name has never been spelled correctly by others my entire life, and it stopped bothering me when I was 6 yrs old.

Well, in truth, it bothers me more to see someone else's name misspelled than it does my own (especially in this case, when it's so much more common than the incorrect spelling), just because I've grown so used to it, but it does still bother me somewhat. :dunno:

Starting lineup by tourney time. 

Green, KD, Flan, Jabari, Kess

Put it in the bank :)

I think Green will continue to come off the bench. I think Bruce likes Zep's intensity on the defensive side of the ball and sets the tone early in the game. Green is a good change of pace though.

Mine just did it when I tried to type his last name. I had to make my Iphone accept the correct spelling.

I have rarely used his name on my phone. My Iphone is predisposed to Flanagan for some reason.

Again relax please. I just detailed evidence of how mine does it incorrectly & by 1 of the biggest phone company's around. Just let it go & when it happens in the future, if it bothers you, politely ask the poster to check their autocorrect & change the word in their phone for future use. There was no need for this hullabaloo.

It makes no sense, but for what it's worth, my verbiage makes it seem like I'm more upset about it than I am, I think. I don't think less of people for misspelling it (unless they're doing it on purpose, which I don't get the feeling anyone here is), I just want the issue to be corrected. I'm sorry if I came across as hostile.
