    What About Those Auburn Tigers?

    Man, I've been impressed with their play since the SECT.

    I've got to admit they are playing a brand a basketball that I hope will see in Tuscaloosa when CNO gets it going.

    Shoot, I'm so impressed I'm just going to say it: WAR EAGLE!

    More intensity in the last 20 seconds of regulation v. UK than 'Bama's had in the last 200 games - and maybe that's underselling it...

    Will be the new NC.

    Meh. Good for them.

    While I hate their program, I respect what they’ve done in basketball. Unlike our decision-makers, they’ve been willing to invest heavily in their program and are reaping huge dividends. They were willing to spend money and take a risk—we aren’t. What you are seeing is the result.

    Money can’t buy the exposure that they will get from being in the final four.

    I am not sure how to put this. The team wearing Auburn's uniforms is the type of team that I typically pull for in these tournaments. But because they have Auburn on the jersey, I am having a tough time. The good news - not a single blue blood left in the pool, which means that I can just enjoy the games and not worry about who wins while hoping it isn't Auburn.

    The real issue was that we didn’t have the best AD when we really needed it. Bill battle maybe one of worst ADs we have had when it was for a sport other than football. He had 3 bad hires that has made us regress in major sports. Byrne has made two really good hires that may take some time to negate those Battle hires.

    Also take into account that it took Pearl 5 years to get past the round of 32 with Auburn. And he was owned by Anthony Grant his first few years. So it wasn’t always looked at as a for sure thing that Auburn would turn into a deep playoff team

    For the past 50-plus years since SEC basketball integration, I've rooted for a team from Alabama to become national champions. I'm almost willing to grant All Bran a brief relocation in Lee County from West Georgia this week to culminate that long-held vision that has accompanied me well into senior citizenship. Nah, fact of the matter is, if All Bran managed to get into Monday night's championship game, I'd have to watch it blindfolded and with the volume turned down, with my beverage a quart of castor oil drunk by a skinny straw to fully purge any incipient pangs of All Bran sporting enthusiasm from my system...
