Tha Gusty Gatahs are Bruce's latest victims.

Well, the Gatahs had previously been victimized by the team barber.  Not sure WHAT in the fuck is going on in G'ville.

Up next: Nate Oats and his Crimson Chodes.

I have no complaints.

As I heard a rival fan say… “close your eyes and imagine how good you think the Auburn basketball team is.  Now open your eyes and double that.  Then realize you still aren’t there in terms of the reality.  That’s how good this team can be.” 

It’s amazing. And disgraceful that we haven’t rained money and hookers on Bruce Pearl’s head. 

If I did have a little minor complaint though?  It would be the tendency to slack off with a lead, and then press when the opposition cuts into it. 

Sequence against UF with a couple of bad turnovers, including one on an inbounds comes to mind.  Made some really sloppily frantic turn overs. Had several chances to run them out of the building.  Got in our own way.  Seen that quite a few times.  Terrible turnover  right after getting a turnover that could break it open.

But that’s nitpicking.  How many times in your life have you had the ability to say “this team could go head to head with any in the country and have a good shot.”

Doesn’t mean I’m not worried about playing in Coleman Mausoleum.  They’re wounded after playing terribly on the road.

That might break them. 

Will they be without their two best receivers?

Great win against the refs and Bama.  This team just finds different ways to win.   I think J Dykes is right: best team in the nation.

Oddly enough I had a Bama fan text me within seconds of going final to ask how much we had to pay the refs to fuck them over. 

They never lose. 

Running them out of the gym would h have been fun but there’s something just as satisfying as letting them have hope and then snatching it away.  Hurts them more.

Their fans are delusional. There would have been no comeback without the refs getting caught up in the emotion of the game and calling every slight tick on AU and then letting the turdsknock our guys down with no foul at all. I thought they killed Green at one point

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.

How does he justify them getting 15 more free throws?  Aah...nevermind.  Fuck him and the rest of the crimpsum lot.

Exactly.  There was one point they called a foul when somebody nearly decapitated Flanigan from behind.  I went into the kitchen to grab a drink, was gone for like less than 30 seconds and when I came back the turds were at the free throw line.  I was like ... fuck.... did he miss the shot and we foul on the rebound?  What did I miss?  So I rewound it to discover the ref had actually called the foul on Flanigan's back, apparently.

Guess he, Jaylin Williams and Kessler were just lucky they didn't get called for all those times their backs got in the way on rebounds.

Almost entire game without Kessler too. They were calling him for breathing too hard apparently. And well, hes now a target for the zebras going forward.

As an admin on a premium site I won't name eluded to last night well, underlined:

Center Walker Kessler was severely limited by foul trouble for the second consecutive game. Auburn people will fuss all day about the calls and whatnot, and some of them in Tuscaloosa were iffy at best, but the bottom line is that Kessler must find a way to stay in the game. Auburn's defense is at its best when perimeter guys can play more aggressively for deflections and steals knowing Kessler can clean up messes at the rim. When he's out, those perimeter guys must change their defensive paradigms — and it weakens the Tigers' defense significantly.

Were a very different team when Kessler is in the game.

But yall are correct. Bama was in the Double Bonus halfway through the second half. Thats pure nuts. But the above writeup is correct - Kessler has to find a way (in spite of the bad calls) to stay in games. Although Cardwell - defensively - did an ample job.

About the only thing he could have done last night was to escort them to the basket and lift them up so they could lay it in more easily.  And then get called for reaching.

We seriously need to enjoy this era. Its a golden era.

Bruce is 60+. He won't be around forever. And his regal heir the good Prince Steven just doesnt have the same tenacity, charisma and marketable persona that Lord Bruce does. Although Ive read he's an excellent scout and x's/o's coach as far as game planning.

It won't be like this 20 years from now most likely. Even now, we will lose some games. Thats the nature of 35-40 game round ball schedule with 18-21 year old student athletes. You can't be "on" every night. We may even lose to a few teams that are lesser than us.

But that aside, and for now......we really need to be enjoying this team, this coach and these good times. I never thought I'd see this in my lifetime. Not even half of what he has made us even. Bruce Pearl deserves to be the highest paid coach in CBB....PERIOD. The job he took was one of the worst in the country, and he turned it into what appears to be on the verge of a dynasty if he keeps this trajectory. Or at least a perennial powerhouse program at worst.

All hail Lord Bruce. Anything less than a damn statue and naming the court after the guy would be a travesty.

When they finally did call over the back on #2, he acted like it was a travesty. Hell that was the fourth time he had done it in the last 5 minutes. We got away with a few, but not nearly enough to even out.
