There can not be a season 2.  This ending was perfect.

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.

And just like that I was transported to the 80s. 

Got an email from Amazon encouraging me to join the Vinyl Club.  Once a month I’ll get an album specially selected by their music curators.  Emphasis on the great releases of the 70s. No fee to join.  No control over what they send. Low low carb price of $24.95 per month.

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.

If you had to spend a week or two in a Fox hole with one in really cold weather, who would you choose between Sani, Jarhead or bgreene?

Do you consider who is the sexiest? Or, who is least likely to make you their bitch?

It’s a tough call.

Sadly, he didn't realize that he could have taken the reins this season had he put in max effort. That's called maturity.
Interesting. I’ve always called that a jockey.

The next war our country enters is going to result in a lot of dead Americans.

Good Americans. Because we all know none of these woke bitches will be in the front  lines.

Good times right there.

Quote of the decade:
“That dude is 7’ tall, he’s not going to the damn Army. What’s he gonna hide behind?'”

ROUND MOUND OF RECRUITING: BARKLEY OFFERED DIRK NOWITZKI ‘ANYTHING HE WANTS’ TO SIGN WITH AUBURN
by ANTHONY FARRIS

Dallas legend Dirk Nowitzki had his jersey retired by the Mavericks last night, but had he listened to Charles Barkley, he may have also had a jersey hanging in the rafters at Auburn.

“I called Nike. I said, ‘Find about this kid. Tell him I’ll give him anything he wants to go to Auburn,'” Barkley said in June, detailing the first time he met Dirk.

“Anything he wants, we’ll get it done,” added Barkley.


The time which Barkley was referring to was 1997, when Nowitzki was a teenager in Germany playing a Nike exhibition game against NBA stars like Barkley, Michael Jordan and Scottie Pippen. But Dirk didn’t just play, he dominated.


“Dirk finished with like 52 (points),” said Barkley.

That impressive showing turned Barkley from opponent to recruiter. However, Nowitzki elected instead to bypass college altogether and jump from a German pro team to the NBA.

Even though the combined resources of Barkley and Nike weren’t enough to convince Nowitzki to start shouting “War Eagle,” Sir Charles’ influence may have literally kept a rifle out of the sharpshooter’s hands.


“I said, ‘Where you gonna play (college basketball) at?'” Barkley recalls. “He says, ‘I have to go in the Army.’ I said, ‘Dude, you can’t go in the Army playing like that.'”

As Barkley tells it, he called Nike again later in the summer to make one last run at having Nowitzki sign with the Tigers.

“(Nike) said, ‘Well, he’s got to go in the Army.’ I said, ‘That dude is 7’ tall, he’s not going to the damn Army. What’s he gonna hide behind?'”

Not long after his initial meeting with Barkley, Nowitzki was in the NBA to start what would be a 21-year career.

“I was like, ‘Dude, you should’ve went to Auburn. We’d have a few banners up right now,'” Barkley recalled.

Ultimately, Nowitzki made the right decision. He has both his number and a championship banner in American Airlines Arena in Dallas, and Barkley gets to tell another story about himself and what might have been.
