    Oh man, you Auburn fans probably STILL flinch just at the thought of Clemson Basketball.

    "Mercy, mercy, mercy" "uncle, uncle, uncle".

    You are welcomed to hate on me all you desire. I don't know what basis you are attacking me on but have at it.

    Why don't you just put me on ignore and believe what ever source you want.

    Us UK fans are still breast feeding the baby that Duke put in our bellies in November 2018, so I get it.

    Luckily I was in breckendrige when Clemson decided to fvck us against our will in that tournament game. So I drank lots of booze and went and got in the hot tub while it snowed to ease the pain.

    The worst part is the fact that it's a loooooong off season.

    No kidding. I think AU is in for an early exit again this year, but next year will be looking bright as fvck if we land even a couple of the remaining 2020 kids Bruce is in on..

    Recruiting side note: AU and UK both gonna miss on big Cliff O. Sucks.

    I would drink some good bourbon with you my friend. Any of you UK fans on here as well. Were I live, we have a BWW’s where UK fans meet up at big games (20-30) and we have good talks during the games. They’re all from Kentucky and my family is there so it’s always good talks of course. They all like Bruce and what he’s done for the SEC and Auburn and how he’s always complimenting UK, etc. In return, I tell them I hated the Cal hire because I loved Pitino and thought Cal was just there for the money, but he changed my mind for his contributions, etc....you know, that sort of friendly stuff.

    He can work the refs like no one else. Before he coached he sold more Buick’s in the Midwest than anyone. For some reason, adults (the press, refs) that should know better buy into his whole schtick.

    But we still won't because Pearl likes to play 9-10 and wear teams down. It's his philosophy and it isn't changing unless he doesn't have 8-10 players, which doesn't look likely to be the case anytime soon. He's right about it, too, regardless of what some Kansas fan thinks.

    Why anyone would WANT a 7 man rotation is bizarre to me.

    John Wooden would tell Pearl he is a fool for having such a deep roster. You should never have more than a 7 or 8 man roster for many reasons.
    That's exactly what he told Cal during the 2015 season when UK had 10 guys. That's a lot of dudes to find playing time for and in this day and age, I don't think you're going to wear anyone down, these kids are in great shape. That kinda thing used to work back in the 90's and early 2000's, but the training these kids go through now is crazy.

    Pearl needs to learn how to play Texas A&M. Even lowly Kentucky beat Texas A&M at College Station.

    Plus the late calls were all in favor of Auburn. How can they get only 18 free throws against Texas A&M and 44 against Kentucky?
