    Re: What About Those Auburn Tigers?

    After Auburn punched their ticket to the FF, I had a person in Texas ask me, "Is Auburn in Georgia?" I told them, "That's what most folks think."

    Re: What About Those Auburn Tigers?

    Auburn fans are now upset the AP didn't include a single player on the All-American team. It's like they don't realize how things work.

    And don’t forget, Moore handed the basketball hiring to Dave Hart, and we got CAG out of it

    Was discussed some on the radio yesterday. After his third year at Auburn, Bruce was 44-54 (16-38 in SEC play). The jump from year three to year four really didn't make much sense when looking at the previous years. Amazingly, Bruce is still 10 games under .500 in SEC play.

    The only reason I’m not for the Barners is because they’re Barners. The team is fun to watch.

    I don't mind too much because it's good motivation for the kids and I think this team is more than the sum of its parts anyway. I do think Jared and Bryce should have at least been HM's though.

    Think that was a pretty big indication of how much of a rebuild Auburn was. We were arguably the worst team in the conference coming off the Barbee years, with a roster you wouldn’t be remiss to ascribe to a JUCO. When Bruce came in, he basically had KT Harrell and no one else. He did a good job filling some of the gaps with JUCO and GT guys like Canty and Cinmeon Bowers, but we were in no position to compete, even with the conference was as poor as it was back then.

    Then in 2015 is when he started building what we have now. Swingman Danjel Purifoy and PF Horace Spencer, lightly recruited 4*s, and SG Bryce Brown, a 3* who had 0 P5 offers before Bruce found him.

    2016 brought 4* C Austin Wiley - a top 10 prospect - lightly recruited 4* PG Jared Harper, another 3* with 0 P5 offers in Anfernee McLemore and the only 5* we’ve ever signed in SF Mu Heron.

    2017 brought 3* JUCO swingman Malik Dunbar and 4* stretch PF Chuma Okeke.

    Last year brought PG J’Von McCormick, a guy so lightly recruited he didn’t even has a 247 profile.

    Injury derailed what would probably have been a Sweet 16 run last year, short handed as we were with Anfernee going down, Bryce hurt and two presumptive starters suspended. This year we’ve put it all together, and I believe we exceeded our ceiling, which I considered the Elite 8, even going into the tournament.

    How likely do y'all think it is that Auburn beats UVA? How likely is it that Auburn wins it all?

    Well, I quit watching it when Auburn started doing well. I suggest Auburn fans try that with football.
