Re: Basketball thread
How do you get a guy like that stronger? His bench press must look like a crane raising and lowering stuff. (small stuff)

I heard he maxed out at 135 just last week.  You take those weak comments back!
Now I may be an idiot, but there is one thing I am not, sir, and that, sir, is an idiot.

Re: Basketball thread
Coach Pearl will be completely bald with this core returning. All exhibit extended periods (some in unison) of playing completely out of control. Hoping the power forward Spencer comes in ready for contact so Bowers will have a compliment on the boards.

Mason is going to have to play lights out because we have no consistent point production returning.
Even if he could average 24,25 points per game...where are the other points coming from?

Mason's light is out.  He's gone for the year I heard. 

The out of control stuff really does frustrate me.  They can play well, but for stretches of the game it's like they decided to go out and play pickup games on asphalt. 
If you want free cheese, look in a mousetrap.

Re: Basketball thread
Mason should be gone after this year. He's played 3 full seasons prior to this one. 
You guys ever thought about the fact that the guy who coined the term, "coined the term", coined the term?

Re: Basketball thread
Did Auburn really just lose to the worst team in the SEC, thus solidifying themselves again, as the worst team in the SEC?

Yeah, but they played hard.

We played an inter squad game?

Re: Basketball thread
Pearl knew it was bare.

But I bet he looks back and says DAYUM.


He has the players working hard and help is on the way. Several of the current players will fit in well with more talented players, we just have an all supporting cast right now.

Five statements of WISDOM
1. You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity.
2. What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving.
3. The government cannot give to anybody anything that the government does not first take from somebody else.
4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it.
5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other half is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work because somebody else is going to get what they work for, that my dear friends, is the beginning of the end of any nation.

Re: Basketball thread
Hopefully TJ Lang can come along even more next year. There was moments last night where it seemed he was about to take over.
