AU Basketball only needs 6 more wins...
...in order to reach March Madness with a 4 seed or better.

Very easy schedule left.

South Carolina
Iowa State
Kentucky

Should get us to 18-3.

20 wins doesn't mean you will be in march madness.

Our guys should get that.......but we have some serious deficiencies at this point of the season. Hopefully our guys will continue improving.

No. I know it hurts but right now you’re paying for a bad OOC schedule. Two straight blowouts.

Our SOS is on par with the rest of the SEC...however we did strategically or by luck manage to schedule OOC games against teams that can't expose our biggest weakness.

It would be more accurate to say we are paying for the self-imposed one year recruiting ban this season.

VCU
USC
Utah State

All better than anyone Auburn played OOC according to the NET. LSU also went on the road to VCU and USC and played Utah St neutral site. Auburn played all of their toughest OOC games at home.

Google SOS and you'll see LSU is in the 40's and so is Auburn.

I just gave you the facts. Look at the teams we’ve played and where we’ve played them and you’ll see why LSU is winning close road games and why Auburn is getting completely destroyed on the road.

St Louis is at 54
Richmond 56

VCU is at 45
USC 46


That is marginal, at best.

You used some facts, but they don't support a SOS argument.

To be clear the reason Auburn is losing road games and LSU is winning them is guard play...nothing more and nothing less.

That is your logic?

You do know Auburn blew out State on the road and you beat them by 1 at home, right?

Auburn had a bad week on the road. It has nothing to do with previous schedule........just like this pat week will have no affect moving forward.

An average of 10 spots is marginal when LSU is playing the better teams on the road and Auburn is playing them at home? Come on man, be logical. LSU did the same thing last year. Went on the road and played good OOC competition. There’s a reason LSU has won 12 straight league road games.

Yet Auburn blew out State @ State.........LSU won by 1 at home. What is your "logic" to explain that?

Since trying to car-sell them they were great after playing those first 15 pansies, if he now continues to bull rush every player on his team he sees and screams as loud as he can at them and spits in their faces from 3 inches away on national TV - they might just accomplish that feat.

re: AU Basketball only needs 6 more wins...
So you think a 9-9 SEC team is getting a 4 seed? That’s sounds more like a bubble team to me.

Nobody will care or remember that Auburn beat up on the Eagle Scouts of America and the Sheet Metal Workers Union in OOC play in November and December.

You’re comparing a road game to a home game. There’s a ton of factors. I’m stating to you why LSU has been great on the road the last two seasons and why Auburn hasn’t. That’s ok though because literally NO ONE in the SEC is as good on the road as LSU.

It’s ok to admit your team is deficient in areas. LSU sucks at everything around the three point line. Shooting it and defending it.
