    We dont mix in enough of it. We played a decent amount of zone vs LSU. I thought we got out of it too soon. I expect to see Auburn play some 2-3 against us tonight.

    Re: Auburn @ Alabama (8 pm tip on ESPNU)

    What worries me is Auburn's offensive rebounding- mainly because when they are firing up so many 3 point shots, the rebounds are coming off so long that off guards are able to sneak in and grab them for an extra possession. We have to box out the backside extended because just blocking out the guys in the lane won't be enough. Kira, Mack, Petty, etc can't get caught trying to sneak out during shots. We need all 5 guys on the court rebounding.

    Don't mean to be too negative here, but our best hope of winning is Auburn not shooting the trey well. Sure, good defense and rebuilding is always necessary, but if they have a hot hand from 3 land I'm not sure we can keep up with them.

    Let's face it, we won't win a high scoring game.

    Almost a guarantee there will be at least one 5 minute scoring drought. Even in our blowouts we have one.

    You are right. We have to defend the whole floor, but especially 3's. We get down when they start jacking up 3's and hitting them we will get killed. We've got to defend like we did at Carolina. We match up with them much better than we did with LSU.

    I think Petty is due so. I hope he goes off tonight.

    The best thing for me if we do not play well and win is the Iron Bowl trophy presentation at halftime! RTR!

    Supposedly Watford is cancelling his duke visit and visiting us tonight. Increases the pressure to win

    The downside of dropping satellite and going with streaming, is that I don't get ESPNU or SECN. I think I need to change my DirectNow package.
