    Hope you've enjoyed your little undefeated run in basketball, it ends tomorrow. You don't just walk into Coleman Coliseum and come out with a win (Penn excluded, of course)

    I actually think this week will be tough for AU. bama and UF on the road. I'm thinking bama wins tomorrow, then AU boat races you guys in Auburn.

    We will play you tough, and perhaps kick your butt, for ~90% of the game...at which point we will repay the debt.

    Don't get me wrong. If both teams play at their best, AU is the better team and comes away with the win. I just think that you guys will play your best game of the year, the crowd will be up, and AU won't quite be able to put it together.

    I made this post in jest obviously, but I do expect it to be a close game. Bama is playing better as of late than the 8-7 record suggests, seems like the team is buying into whatever Oats is preaching. Whether that'll translate into wins at some point remains to be seen.

    The line for the game is also only 2 points. Bama has to hit a good number of 3s to win this game, unlike what they did against Kentucky.

    The line should be a sign, tbh. #4 team in country playing an 8-7 team should point to a higher line than 2, regardless of venue. Looks like a sucker bet to me.

    There are still tickets available which is a little bit concerning to me. I haven’t been to a sellout Bama basketball since probably 2004 when Antoine Pettway beat Florida at the last second.

    I’ll look for you as the auburn fans storm the court similar to when the football team beats Bama.

    I think AU gets in Petty's face and disrupts his 3 shot. AU must play good D and get a bunch of rebounds and we can win it.

    Wonder if McLemore liked the look of disappointment on the fans faces at Coleman last night?

    I didn't expect AU to look THAT bad, but the loss itself wasn't surprising. If Auburn had someone other than Bruce, I would be concerned that this loss could turn into a trend, but this is a great opportunity to teach these guys. I think they started thinking that they were better than what they actually are. I don't know if they'll win at UF (in fact, I don't think they will), but I think they'll look a lot better than last night, and they'll be better as the season goes on.

    Well, I was right about not beating UF, but I was wrong bigly about playing better. The shooting was so bad that AU wouldn't beat the bama gators, let alone the UF version.

    I hope Doug Shows finds some dirt on the Clintons sometime.
