That was as ugly a half as they've played this season.  Nobody could find the basket, early foul issues...just awful basketball.

Looks like they found a rhythm there in the last 7 minutes or so and hopefully they'll pull away in the 2nd half.

It was a win. 81-71.

Purifoy didn’t look like warmed over dung. There may be hope.

USCe will eat our lunch if we play the same way. They are relentless and have more than one shooter.
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.

I'm still extremely happy.

This is honestly all I've ever wanted from Auburn basketball.  It's fun.  It's interesting. There's positive energy throughout the program.  There's always a chance no matter who's on the schedule.  A NCAA Tournament bid was essentially in the bag by January and the only question was really seeding. 

When you consider the trash heap Bruce Pearl inherited, how can you be anything other than grateful and impressed? 

It gives me hope.  And hope's a dangerous thing.

It's clearly the end of days as I continue to agree with K on far too many things.

I only caught the final 5 minutes or so today, but the team looked confident and cohesive.  Trouble for anyone facing them.  

I really prefer our matchup with UF over LSU, so thanks to Wade for the distraction.

I’d run through a wall for the guy. Just love the energy. Again - we will not do better. Pay the man. Long term.

You do know there's an ongoing investigation.  Smh


Oh wait.....wrong thread.

Happiest I’ve ever been with the program. 

The only times we’ve ever been good in the past it was because we had a generational-type player.  Barkley. Person.  Porter. 

This is a team.  No one-man superstar show. Greater than the sum of its parts.

Phenomenal 20 point win...with Harper sitting for pretty much the entire 1st half.

Purifoy is finally finding a shot and adding value on both ends of the court.

I like the momentum this team has, especially with Wiley getting back into the rotation.

I'd be more scared of our draw if KU hadn't just had their asses handed to them by ISU (hey Chiz!), but still having to play through two bluebloods is a tough row.

If we make it past KU then Tarheel does not get his woo back.
"Hey my friends are the ones that wanted to eat at that shootty hole in the wall that only served bread and wine.  What kind of brick and mud business model is that.  Stick to the cart if that's all you're going to serve.  Then that dude came in with like 12 other people, and some of them weren't even wearing shoes, and the restaurant sat them right across from us. It was gross, and they were all stinky and dirty.  Then dude starts talking about eating his body and drinking his blood...I almost lost it.  That's the last supper I'll ever have there, and I hope he dies a horrible death."

Auburn is just looking at all those teams saying, "You may not be first, but you can be next."
