    Man it would be nice to just come out on fire for 40 minutes and win by 20; however, I will be fully prepared for another stressful, ulcer inducing 40 minutes with untimely turnovers, poor shot selection, and missed free throws that will frustrate the bejesus out of me.

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

    My thoughts on the game tonight and what I would like to see.

    Obviously, we need to limit turnovers to avoid giving up easy looks in transition. We also MUST win the rebounding battle. If we lose the battle on the boards tonight, that will mean we are getting completely out hustled. That is a recipe for a home blowout loss.

    If I were making the gameplan:

    Offensively:

    I would have us drive, drive, drive some more. This does a few things: 1) Gives us what should be better looks at the basket and takes advantage of our athleticism and our length 2) Should limit long rebounds which lets Auburn get out in transition 3) Will allow us to hit the offensive glass very hard 4) could help us get them in foul trouble early. 5) Get some easy open 3 point looks from kick outs; after beating them off the dribble and they help down.

    When we arenít driving we need to pound the ball in the paint. Also, not just to Hall. We need to post up Petty, and Dazon some (if he plays) Posting up Dazon May help limit his turnovers. We have a size and length advantage with our guards. We need to use it and get physical with them.

    Defensively:

    Get physical with them. We have a size advantage we need to use it. I would like to see Herb on Harper some. (I know we tried it some early last time, but the game snowballed on us so quickly that it didnít matter) Have Petty guard Brown often. Again, I want length on their guards.

    This also sounds crazy as well as they shoot the ball, but I would mix in some zone too. This should help limit getting beat off of the dribble. We are long enough that we can get into the shooters faces. (Actually as long as we are we should actually play a 2-3 zone more often)

    Sorry for the long post. Just wanted to play analyst for a minute haha!

    Oh, so you think Alabama will be a high enough NIT seed to get a home game?

    I did think about that - LOL. You are correct, we can't assume a home NIT game - so tonight might be it for those 4 seniors. I'd like to see Lawson Schaeffer start tonight and play for a while - i bet the students would go crazy. We have nothing to lose anyway. We're not going to the big dance without winning out the regular season and at least 2-
    3 wins in the SEC tourney. I highly doubt that happens unless we recruit a few more consistent shooters between now and tip-off.

    Whew. You honestly think Alabama needs 4-5 more wins to get to the tournament? Have seen no one say that. Most say 19 wins gets Alabama into the NCAAT.

    Do you even follow how the NCAA tournament works now? Youíre saying we need 4-5 wins to get in the tournament? Thatís just nonsense. Either you have ZERO clue what youíre talking about or youíre just trolling. 95% of the brackets have us currently in the tournament. A win tonight probably gets us in the tournament, 2 wins definitely does. If we win 2-3 games in the tournament we are COMFORTABLY in with probably an 8 or 9 seed.

    Avery Johnson has never heard of any type of zone defense. I firmly believe that after watching him all season. Too much NBA in him. But I agree with the idea.
