    Anyone follow SEC MBB? How talented is Auburn? I'm thinking they could give our team some trouble, but I'm not expecting them to lose by any means. Hard to gauge as the Tigers haven't played a whole lot of stiff competition, except for their loss against Northwestern State who's been beating about everybody. Auburn is a bit of a mystery to me.

    I don't think Auburn has been good since Iowa State beat Auburn in Minneapolis in the NCAA Tournament in 99-2000 season!!!

    Auburn is tough matchup. They will likely win the conference and perhaps run away with it. Some "insiders" have them as a dark horse to the final four. Should be a good game if we win we are the real deal!

    They aren't good, but they aren't just a "show up and you win" game.
    They're a "show up and try for a few minutes and you win" game. Should be a pretty comfortable 15-20 point win.

    I won't call Auburn terrible, but they're whatever the next step up is. Bad? Yeah, let's go with that.

    They are 3-1 with wins over Nicholls State, Jacksonville State, and Murray State(not even close to their team two year ago) and a 20 pt loss to Northwestern State.

    So I can't imagine very good.

    All you had to say was Auburn lost to NW St. They did beat Iowa in the NCAA tourney a year or five ago.

    You sure you didn't copy/paste from a Michigan thread?

    I want to beat Auburn but not too badly. Id like to keep Sir Charles Barkley on our side since he had our backs after Buckeye Charge Gate.

    Auburn is 3-1 with wins over Nicholls State, Jacksonville State, and Murray State, and a loss to Northwestern State.

    Auburn allowed 72 points in the second half against NW State.

    Ive seen them play but only for about 15 minutes. Theyre somewhere between dumpster fire and Lickliter Iowa.

    NM about NW State. I must have been thinking of some other mid-major.

    No worries, Northwestern State is the real deal:

    I have zero problem with cockiness for an Auburn basketball game.
