Just looking at the numbers and common opponents, Alabama looks really really good. . . . We are going to need a herculean effort to beat them. . .now that said. . . it is at home, we are peaking, we’ve got a really good shot at them. I am looking forward to this game like none other this year.
Interesting comment. I don’t think that would have been his moniker as the season started. It sure looked to me in November that he was auditioning to be an NBA 2 guard. His progress and transformation into a PF have been amazing.
Remember the talk about Indiana fans being not unhappy that he was leaving. This someone pointed out something that was spot on. Smith was playing out of position on the wing at Indiana. In fact Smith attempted to do that here as well initially by shooting a lot of threes. I think Muss straightened that out and we see the results. I am betting he was playing 5 in high school.
Exactly what happened with Adrio Bailey in his senior year when Muss put him in his natural high school position.
Bama looked like they thought they were playing an easy tune up game in preparation for their game at Arkansas. I don’t expect to see a team, that in any way, resembles the Bama team that played Saturday.
The Hogs better “strap it on” defensively and make sure their shots are falling Wed. night if they expect to come out with a win.
And, by the way, I expect exactly that to happen Wed. night. With the help of the fans, the Hogs get a big, but close, win.
The star point guard for Auburn makes an impact in the TO department as much as he does anywhere else on the box score! Auburn has numerous possessions where he just went nuts With TO and getting his shot blocked in traffic down the stretch at money time.
Cooper is a loose cannon!
