Thank God we don't open with Barry.  That's one bad dude.

On a totally useless and unrelated note, Austin Wiley came lumbering by our tailgate Saturday.  Talked to him for a brief second.  He's very tall.  Taller than most.

They will get there...did some good things did a lot of not so good things.  Won the game against a decent opponent.  This is not the Ga. Southern football team.  

BTW Tigers won.  Final 83-74

Looked like a team full of freshmen trying to figure out how to play together.  Saw a lot of promise out there though.  When they do gel, look out.  Okoro looks like a fully growed man.

Agreed, they were sloppy with turnovers especially the 1st half. Second half, much like last year, Pearl got in their ear and they made adjustments. 2nd half, they all worked much better together. Seemed more like an even flow. Like mentioned, GA So is not a slop team. They will be a nightmare for many top tier teams all season long.

3 things Auburn needs to work on.

1 - Turnovers. I think that comes with more games and working together as a team.
2 - 3 point shot. Many 3's were off target last night.
3 - Wiley. Get the ball to Wiley. He was open a good bit last night. Those are the easy buckets. Wiley looks to be in great shape.

I had to remind myself several times last night to not measure this years team on last years. There will be a different look. One thing I do know that is constant is Bruce Pearl will be relentless in making them better.

This means nothing as far as the potential success or failure of this team.  But, it's nice to watch an Auburn basketball team that looks like a bunch of full grown men.  They look like they can match up physically with anyone.  It's been forever, maybe Cliff Ellis forever, since we didn't look overmatched physically against just about anyone we stepped on the court with.  I like what Mr. Pearl has done there.

As a side note: Caught most of the second half radio broadcast. Burcham to me is a tougher transition with the basketball play by play than he is with football. 
Understand it's gonna take some time for Andy to follow and call the play on the floor it's just that Rod and Sonny were such a smooth team together and I really miss how they could seamlessly describe the action as it took place.
And it was fun all at the same time.

Was only able to catch the last 10 minutes or so, but sounded like a good win.  Davidson is another quality team that is testing these youngsters early.  

Purifoy seems to have not found his shot yet, but it's close.

McCormick jumped nearly out of the building late in the game.  I really like him at the point.

Beating Davidson in any given year is a quality win.  If McCormick develops a consistent outside shot, that might be a the key to how far this team can go.  He's athletic and quick as fudge. If they have to respect him on the perimeter, he could do major damage.

I'm going and haven't been this excited to attend a sporting event in a long, long time.  

It's a hard sellout.  Tickets I bought for $14 a few weeks ago were going for $180 yesterday (down to $70 now).  I've got kids at South so I get their weekly emails.  They're trying to spin this as a groundswell of interest in their (supposedly) improving basketball program.  Their coach is hoping for at least a 50/50 split in Auburn and South fans.  

I'm expecting a veritable sea of orange and blue, to the point that this becomes essentially an Auburn home game.  But we'll see.  

I think it's gonna be fun.  If nothing else, getting to watch Bruce Pearl coach a basketball game is up there on the list.

Had intended to research how long it took Bruce to develop a solid bench last season...40 pts. v. Carolina by post season. We lack that right now. Quite a few minutes for those not used to playing so much. Know that's an excuse but it really matters moving forward.

Yes, they were pretty ready to get a T themselves. It really sounded like Sonny made it a point for a ref to hear him make mention of one of the calls.

McLemore and Johnson each had 14 off the bench.  That's solid.

Granted but it's also a trade off for the lack of production by two starters that underperformed.
I keep thinking Purifoy is going to become what we thought he would
be but he still disappears for long periods.
Also realize Wiley is not going to suddenly become a double/double machine but we do need him to be more consistent overall.

Players have off nights and this could have been the case for both.

Great to get any win. We started much the same last year with a few hiccups and as the season went on we might roar out to big leads only to hang on while other times we would come out ice cold and then suddenly run them out of the building.

One thing this bunch is definitely going to have to realize?   For a lot of teams, AU coming to town is their big moment.  That was the biggest game South Alabama's played since they beat Alabama in the NCAA Tournament back in 1989 (FWIW, the Jags' only NCAA Tourney win ever). It was the biggest game in the history of the Mitchell Center.  Had they won?  Highlight reel footage for the next three decades.  For AU, though?  It was just a pesky mid-week OOC game which (win or lose) won't be remembered past next week.  That's the critical difference and it honestly (IMO) showed in how the two teams treated the game and pretty much every possession. 

How big was it for South?  

I heard a guy coming out of the arena last night say he'd been coming to Jag games for 15 years and this was the first time he could remember having to worry about parking or traffic.   

This team averages about 1600 people a game in a 10,000 capacity building.  Last night every ticket was sold. People were sitting in seats last night that had been under a tarp for probably ten years or more.   

I hope South can build on that.  It's a good place to play basketball.  They've got an excitable, enthusiastic and seemingly talented young coach.  I laughed watching him shed his jacket and then take off his tie and chew a bite out of it at one point in the game.  A lot of those people who came last night had never been to a college basketball game before -- you could tell.  Maybe they'll come back.  

If I had one complaint about the venue/fans? There were lots of people at the game, but I was disappointed in the number of students who showed.  I really expected to see a larger, louder student representation.  

It's been a minute since an Auburn basketball team coming in was a major crowd draw.  I can't even say with any certainty that if this game had been two years ago that I would have known about it and if I had known, I'm not sure I would have gone.  We're big time now.  And we're going to get people's best.  Just like last night.  

I'm going to go back to South next Tuesday to watch them demolish SpringHill. Just out of curiosity. Seven white guys coming in to get dunked on by Ifeoloua Ajayi and Trhae Mitchell.  I hope the students come back to see that.

THIS. I think not only for the AU coaches and team but also the fans we have to realize this. Seems far fetched to be honest but it is what it is now. Time to have fun with it.

BTW to answer this we should have won by at least 7-8 points.  Free throws...free throws...free throws.  Bruce really needs the boys to get it going at the charity stripe.  It was bad.  That was the worstest thing I saw.

Honestly, I thought the South Alabama coach fudgeed up, IMO when we got the ball back with 22 seconds and crossed half court I would have fouled us.

Also in response to Kaos on Wiley...I have watched all of the games, he's good, but he isn't where he needs to be on a consistent basis.

I missed one.  Both games I saw so far, he's getting beaten.  Slow reaction times.  Driving past him and he ends up fouling.

I really like Wiley but he's sort of our basketball answer for a blocking tight end. You can check all of the boxes with this kid from genes on down that should indicate a double/double machine but it ain't happening. 

He's sort of filling the spot vacated by Horace Spencer right now as a basket defender/ rebounder. Doesn't have his "spot" on the floor where we feed him and he doesn't really possess the prerequisite jump hook that big men normally have.

I mentioned last season, if he can learn to score around the basket, he could be great.
He just does not have the ability to successfully attack the basket with the ball in his hands. He needs to attend a reputable big man camp during the off season. I do not even see him getting drafted this year at this rate.

Love the kid too. Using football terms he just hasn't got the quick twitch, hips or hands. He just plays sort of stiff and a step slow. I don't mean to be overly critical it's just an observation. He has no body fat, gigantic hands and can run till the cows come home without getting winded but he just lacks a certain vital element to make him an elite baller.

What a fun team to watch. We've all criticized Wiley but he is truly a silent assassin. He doesn't get enough credit for what he does. He balled tonight. Poor 3 point and free throws. Power inside and tenacious d. Wait. That sounds like a band.

That was a can of defensive whoop ass on a team that isn't terrible.  Listening to the announcers whine about NMS playing out of control and wasting possessions got a little tiresome.  Many of those wasted possessions were a direct result of defensive hustle disrupting their flow.  

Hard to find much to criticize.  Went through a first-half stretch of flinging bricks, airballs and botched shots in the lane but settled down and fixed it.  

I could be wrong, but I think this might be a better team overall than last year.  Talent seems evenly distributed.  I'm not saying its going to win the SEC, make the Final Four or win the NC but based on what I've seen so far I wouldn't say any of those things are completely out of the realm of possibility.  

BTW?  I'm sitting here in utter amazement that the prior paragraph was written about the Auburn basketball program.

The preseason thought was that it would be hard to replace the offensive barrage of Harper and Brown but so far this lineup isn't taking us though those awful cold spells requiring 6 threes and balls to the wall pressing defense to get us back in a game.

Was concerned early on about our bench play but Coach Pearl knows when to get the right guys in and it doesn't feel as if we are losing production. That factors into lessening those scoring lulls and imo this looks like a better overall defensive team than last season. 

And yes I was critical of Wiley but he has since been proving me wrong and  hope he will continue to do so.

Seems like I read somewhere (not al.com, they barely covered the game in order to breathlessly tell us all what Tinkle Tupperblowgovia will be doing during Saturday's game and how Danny Sheridan was right in saying Auburn football sucks...) BUT to get back to the topic, I read somewhere that this is the first regular season tournament title for AU since 2004.  

I don't know what tournament that was, but the 2004-05 team started 5-0 before losing to Virginia, Wofford, UNLV and Toledo. It lost its first five SEC games and won a grand total of four in the league.  

I don't see this bunch flopping like that.

Post by: Snaggletiger on November 27, 2019, 10:21:29 AM
Just a note on that 2004 team.  This was Jeff Lebo's first year.  There was one player in the rotation, Quinnel Brown, who was 6'6".  Everyone else who played that year was 6'4" and under.  They had one legit player, Tony Douglas, a guard who averaged about 17 points a game.  He immediately transferred out to, I believe, FSU.

The sad thing is that as bad as this team was, they could have actually propelled Auburn basketball towards some great things.  If you recall, when Ellis was let go and Lebo announced, they had an exodus of key players that pretty much decimated the program.  6'8" man child, Marco Killingsworth, left to go start for Indiana.  6'9" Dwayne Curtis departed for Ole Miss and was their starting center and played quite well.  6'8" Brandon Robinson took off for parts unknown.  There were a couple of others I believe as well. 

Tony Douglas and the rest of that bunch weren't bad players.  They were just way overmatched physically every time the they stepped on the court.  I don't know if it was Cliff getting the boot or Lebo's magnetic personality that caused the defections.  Either way, they went from possible SEC title contenders to perennial doormats in the blink of an eye.

My biggest worries of this year Free Throws and 3's

This team thinks it's the team from last year and they aren't. We really don't need to live by the 3 like we did last year.  This team has tremendous defensive skills and really we have the size to work the shots inside.  Really hope they start to see that, because we fix those two things and we "will' be a force to be reckoned with.

While I agree let me say this. Furman is a solid solid team. They already pantsed South Carolina this year. They beat two final four teams last years from the previous years tourney including the defending national champion Nova. Should we beat them? Yes. But they are sneaky good and have a precedent for doing what almost happened last night. They aren’t scared of big boys. Credit to them - they were scrappy. Gurley and Mounce gave us fits all damn night. Add to all that, we had an awful night from behind the arc and at the stripe. Those off nights will be less than our “on” nights. I liked the fight we showed. I liked Bruce standing up for his guys in the face of many bad egregious calls and taking a T for the team. It fired them up. I liked a lot of what I saw despite the very bad play for most of the game. Take the W and onward to sec play.

I wouldn't be surprised one bit if we see many of these teams Auburn has played making some noise in March. It seems several of these teams have added to their 2019/2020 with transfers from other well respected b-ball schools.

This was the first game that I watched whistle to whistle.  Couple of things stood out to me.

Like snags said we get better at the charity stripe and this one isn't even close however free throws were neglected years ago in favor of the 3 point line.  If we hit 70%, that will be consistent with everyone else who can't shoot them either.

We are quick and hustle.  I don't recall seeing anyone lagging behind in transition from one end to the other.  That can pay big dividends over the course of the year.

We seemed to be looking for shots better last night than what I have seen before.

I saw Samir Doughty and a couple others getting chippy with the NC State fellas. The confident, stand your ground type of chippy. I like it. I'm in full believe this years version of the Bruce Pearls have that nasty grind it out attitude. I'm certain there is motivation being carried over from last years Final 4. The free throws should get better. It seems this last two games has been somewhat of a funk at the line but I want to say the team as a whole were actually pretty decent so far this year.

a 3?  shoot we couldn't buy a basket. Shot 14% in the first half.  14 god damn percent!!

9 minute stretch without a point and we were only down by 6.  Amazing defense and pressure!

If this guy can continue the way he played Saturday, we'll be tough to beat for anyone.

I think that solid guard play from Harper is the biggest difference from last season to this one.  Funny how we're 13-0 and you still get the sense that we're not as good as last year.  I know that's just perception and it's based more off the incredible run they had starting with the SEC tourney.  I have to remind myself that until that run, they still weren't a lock to make the dance.  I do believe this team has more athletes overall, especially with this Freshman class.  I also believe they'll get better as McCormick gets more consistent.

I don't get that sense at all.  

I actually think we're a better TEAM than we were.  Can we do better than we did last year tournament wise?  I think that's not a reasonable expectation, but I'm really encouraged.

They don't "look" as cohesive yet, but they are performing at a higher level earlier in the season.

It's just my perception based on the last memories I have of last year's squad, which was them running rough shod over the blue bloods of college basketball.  When we struggle for a half against Bumfudge U, I naturally think, well clearly we're not as good.  I know that's not realistic but they spoiled me with that run.

I think this s the difference between last season and this one.
And the bench seems to have some REALLY talented young players on it.

As we all stared early on, the key here will be Wiley and Purifoy. As odd as it seems, because neither one was really key last season.

I think we are a more athletic, more well-rounded team than we were last year.  I think some of our downfalls this year are the seniors remembering how we played last year when we lived and died by the 3, that we don't need to do that this year.  The tourney, however, is a whole nother beast, it's all about getting hot at the right time. 

So while I do think this team is better than last years, we may also not make it as far as last year, we shall see.  I'm just enjoying the ride.

McCormick isn't going to need to go for 28 a game the rest of the SEC season, but he WILL be the key to how far this team can go IMNSHO.  He is the jet fuel for this G6.  The super premium unleaded for this Corvette ZR1.  The roux for this gumbo.  The Buzz for the X.  Kinda important even.

This is true, but Samir was a clear backup/new guy last season.
Wiley and Purify were the stars from a couple of seasons before that were expected to come back and heavily contribute. Wiley came back serviceable But Purifloy never did get into any kind of groove. With Samir and Javon, we saw flashes of what they needed to be this season as starters. And both have grown into the role very well.
I wasn't sure Purifoy would ever make it back.
I still don't see McLemore from before his injury. Maybe the team makeup is just different. But he is still a very talented senior.

Just think if Chupacabra Okeefee would have returned!

The Okoro kid is super impressive. Throw in Cambridge, Flanagan, and Johnson, that is a good looking future.

I'm just waiting for the Real Will Macoy to get hot!


Are we redshirting Babatunde?

Defense and free throws can offset poor shooting and turnovers.

Last year at this time we were 11-3.  Got blown out by Ole Miss in the SEC opener on the road.  Probably played a few better teams (Duke, Xavier, NC State) than we did this pre-league season, but the overall competition was similar or maybe better.  There were fewer St. Peter's School for Underage Nuns and Wayward Waifs on the slate. 

The knock on this team is that it only has one win over a Top 50 Kenny Pomegranate (who is this clown?) team.  What I see every single time I watch them play?  A team that has the capacity to turn it on when it wants/needs/has to. 

Watching the State game Saturday.  State was up eight or nine points.  We missed like eleventy nine shots in a row.  Went into the kitchen to make a drink and by the time I got back into the room? Auburn was up three.  I feel like they hit the court every single time knowing they can win.  Confidence that somebody is going to be that guy for that day.  And every one of them thinks 'why not me.'  Every game. Every time. That's exhilarating.

Is this team going to lose a game?  Sure.  Could happen when UGA comes to town.  Might happen in Tuscaloosa (shoot me, shoot me now).  Probably in Gainesville. Then we'll see what this group is made of in how it responds.  But I like a whole lot of what I see so far. 

Rankings don't mean anything, but...

In the early part of the season a year ago, AU had gotten as high as eighth in the polls, but after the SEC-opening loss, dropped to 14 on this same week of the year.  There were two other SEC teams (UT and KY) ranked above us.

AU is currently fifth.  Twenty years since an Auburn team was ranked that high in the regular season. The next highest SEC team is 14th.  There is no other SEC team in the Top 25. 

Know who was 13-0 and ranked fourth at this stage last season?  Correct: Eventual national champion Virginia.

Title: Re: 2019-2020 Official Auburn Hoops Thread (with no official aspirations)
Post by: Godfather on January 06, 2020, 03:49:29 PM
Last year at this time we were 11-3.  Got blown out by Ole Miss in the SEC opener on the road.  Probably played a few better teams (Duke, Xavier, NC State) than we did this pre-league season, but the overall competition was similar or maybe better.  There were fewer St. Peter's School for Underage Nuns and Wayward Waifs on the slate. 

The knock on this team is that it only has one win over a Top 50 Kenny Pomegranate (who is this clown?) team.  What I see every single time I watch them play?  A team that has the capacity to turn it on when it wants/needs/has to. 

Watching the State game Saturday.  State was up eight or nine points.  We missed like eleventy nine shots in a row.  Went into the kitchen to make a drink and by the time I got back into the room? Auburn was up three.  I feel like they hit the court every single time knowing they can win.  Confidence that somebody is going to be that guy for that day.  And every one of them thinks 'why not me.'  Every game. Every time. That's exhilarating.

Is this team going to lose a game?  Sure.  Could happen when UGA comes to town.  Might happen in Tuscaloosa (shoot me, shoot me now).  Probably in Gainesville. Then we'll see what this group is made of in how it responds.  But I like a whole lot of what I see so far. 

Rankings don't mean anything, but...

In the early part of the season a year ago, AU had gotten as high as eighth in the polls, but after the SEC-opening loss, dropped to 14 on this same week of the year.  There were two other SEC teams (UT and KY) ranked above us.

AU is currently fifth.  Twenty years since an Auburn team was ranked that high in the regular season. The next highest SEC team is 14th.  There is no other SEC team in the Top 25. 

Know who was 13-0 and ranked fourth at this stage last season?  Correct: Eventual national champion Virginia. 

So...

This is true, but Samir was a clear backup/new guy last season.
Wiley and Purify were the stars from a couple of seasons before that were expected to come back and heavily contribute. Wiley came back serviceable But Purifloy never did get into any kind of groove. With Samir and Javon, we saw flashes of what they needed to be this season as starters. And both have grown into the role very well.
I wasn't sure Purifoy would ever make it back.
I still don't see McLemore from before his injury. Maybe the team makeup is just different. But he is still a very talented senior.

Just think if Chupacabra Okeefee would have returned!

The Okoro kid is super impressive. Throw in Cambridge, Flanagan, and Johnson, that is a good looking future.

I'm just waiting for the Real Will Macoy to get hot!


Are we redshirting Babatunde?
I’ve heard that “stretch” had some visa issues in the offseason and got stuck in Nigeria. Thus got behind in conditioning and practice. This actually came from a source that would know first hand.

Somebody needs to stand McCormick at the stripe and do nothing but shoot free throws all day. He is 50% on the season. There are only 3 Auburn players above 70% at the stripe currently.

Yes. Oddly enough, he has been the most consistent it seems. He was one that has had troubles at the line. The boy has put in the work.

I'm a little less sold than I was a game ago.  Should have run Vandy out of the building.  Didn't for reasons I can't fathom.  

Still think we're a pretty solid team but that whole Top 5 thing is questionable.  

I also wonder which of you fathered these kids:

The roof raiser is problematic, but Jack Black playing College Student Fattie from that mock Tropic Thunder movie trailer is the worst.  

There was a young lady they showed around the 1:00 mark in the game -- dark hair, toboggan -- that was quite nice, though.  If she's one of your daughters I apologize for railing her in my sleep.

Vandy is vastly improved over last season and they feature the SEC's leading scorer.  With all our defensive attention on Nesmith, Amp Lee's kid went ham.

Never felt like we were in trouble, just couldn't put the game away decisively.

Gonna' be a lot of games like last night.  Defense will keep us in every game but we'll drop our share with the points we leave on the FT line.  While there's no dominant teams in the SEC (Outside of the Fighting Pearls) there's definitely a lot of talent throughout the league.  Not going to be many easy outs in conference play.

I thought raise the roof kid was Ogre's?  Being a ginger and all.   Pretty sure the fat kid with the jersey on is Nook's kid.  That's probably the same expression Nook makes when he is out of the good Pacific NW green. Pretty sure that Snaggs Daughter is the one in the purple denying the advances of the arm hug from the young gentleman beside her.  Buzz is the kid whose mind is blown yours or simps?  I'm going with simps since all his kids can fill up over half the student section.

Pretty good analysis I believe except mine that age would be the one directly behind Ogres kid with that goofy facial expression and hat gesture. Not because of the Okoro slam either. He just realized his homeboi was denied by Snaggs daughter.

There will be many more bumps with a long way to go in the season. This team has a number of flaws.  The key is getting them gellin' like a felon as the season winds towards tourney time.  I just find it nice to have such a competitive team after decades of bottom dwelling.

what the nutless dcp drinker said ^^

and no one minds this. We know it will happen. 

But to lose to that bunch of street ball thugs in that manner? No. Lose to Kentucky or ark? I get that. Good teams. Good talent. Good coaching. 

Last night? That bunch of turnip headed thugs playing that style of ball with almost zero bounds from the zebras? It’s near damn impossible to win. It didn’t sit well. I feel like our guys were not prepared for that “style” of aggressive play. Here is hoping we can counterpunch at home against them knowing it’s coming.

I do feel like they did need a return to earth game.  Our play in the first half has been atrocious but we have been able to overcome.

Like Uncle Sani said sucks it was to the booger eaters.

My daughter knows nothing about basketball.  She watched it last night because she wants to understand why basketball been making me happy I guess.  

So she calls with like 10 minutes left in the game.  Her take?

"Ok, so I don't understand free throw rules.  Does the home team get to shoot them every time they have the ball?  That doesn't really seem fair."  

So I tried to explain the concept of fouls.  

"I still don't get it.  If Auburn players touch them at all, that's a foul but their players can push Auburn players and it's not?  This is a stupid game." 

Couldn't disagree last night.  Every time we cut their lead under five we'd either do something stupid (lazy pass, ill-conceived heave), they'd mug us and get no call or we'd get hit with a charge, a screen violation or something.  If we'd broken on top just once that ragamuffin bunch of punk ass bitches would have folded.  You could see it every single time it got close.  They were just waiting to collapse.  

Yeah, about half of our problem was lazy, sloppy play but we were definitely getting handcuffed by the zebras. They made sure we never got there. 

The one thing that really disturbed me was the number of shots in close that were missed.  Most were too strong.  Layups, dunks, putbacks...  I think we were under 50% on those.  Hit some of that easy shoot and it's a different game.

what the nutless dcp drinker said ^^

and no one minds this. We know it will happen.

But to lose to that bunch of street ball thugs in that manner? No. Lose to Kentucky or ark? I get that. Good teams. Good talent. Good coaching.

Last night? That bunch of turnip headed thugs playing that style of ball with almost zero bounds from the zebras? It’s near damn impossible to win. It didn’t sit well. I feel like our guys were not prepared for that “style” of aggressive play. Here is hoping we can counterpunch at home against them knowing it’s coming.
Wonder what excuse will keep the UAT SGA Pres. from delivering the ODK this time?

Way off topic, but next year could be very interesting depending on how Pearl finishes in recruiting.  Looking at the roster, we have 7 seniors.  If Okoro does turn out to be a one-and-done, we have 8 slots to fill.  Right now, there are 3 commits, one of which is 5 star point guard, Sharife Cooper.  The other two are a 6'7" forward and a 6'5" shooting guard out of Kentucky, Justin Powell.  Both are 3 star players.

The names and faces will be a big change, but if Pearl continues to recruit like has in recent years, AU round ballz should be fun to watch for quite a while.

I tried to be objective and NOT be that fan, but I cannot disagree with her. The touch fouls were pretty bad. Almost phantom like at times. BOTH of our guards fouled out. When is the last time that happened?
And several times the same type of fouls occurred while we were driving to the basket and nothing, zero, zilch.
If we hit half of those free throws, we are ahead. It was a bad game all around. I stated before this game, bamturd's three point shooting could get hot and burn us. I didn't think ours would be that putrid though. Couple that with what? 19 turnovers, and you can't climb out of that hole.
In the end, we will still be standing. They will be lucky to make the SEC tourney.


Another thing that hurt so bad was, this was the first time we had lost to the turds in ANY sport for over a year, I believe.

Auburn will go deep in the NCAA tournament this season. Bama will get the NIT again.  This shoot meant nothing.

It meant something to me. 

I was impressed with Pearl’s postgame response.

What did he say? I couldnt watch. I'm sure he was straight forward a bit it. I'm also sure he will have bammers visit to Auburn circled, underlined and highlighted.

Walked in, stood there silently for a minute or two.  Looked around the room.  

I can't remember the exact wording but he said just one sentence.  It was either "we can play better than that" or "we are going to play better than that"  or just "we are better than that." 

Turned and walked out.

Down by 14 with 4 min to go against the Gatahs. Shots are not dropping. Looks like Auburn is about to lose 2 in a row.
