    Thank you for agreeing. Division wins don’t qualify as relevant. Unless you are Auburn.

    LOL. Smoke weed all day? Good lord
    We won the conference as well since our natty. If you can’t brag about that then Kentucky can only talk about 2012 in basketball under cal

    Winning a title is the end all goal for a program like Kentucky. I am perfectly fine accepting that goals for Auburn are much less than that.

    oh, ok lol...you’re one of “those” people! You believe one must attend school before they can be a fan of a team lol. So tell me, if you didn’t go to whatever school you went to, would you still be a fan of any team???

    The truth hurts dude. Auburn struggles to sell tickets. You know that and I know that.

    https://www.al.com/auburnbasketball/2018/02/auburn_basketball_on_pace_for.html

    Hell half of the folks at any Auburn basketball game are students with a free pass. At UK students must pay to get in and there are only a couple thousand. The other 20,000 pay a big price to sit there.

    So don't go down that road. Auburn's basketball following sucks swamp water. You know it and I know it.

    There's been 81 NCAA Tournaments. Auburn has made 10 of them. And this is a rebuilding year? Interesting perspective.

    Pearl has only taken Auburn to the NCAA tourney twice. Didn't make it his first 3 years as head coach. This will be his third appearance in 6 years. Definitely blue blood status LMAO

    Is losing by 31 points as a 4 seed to a 5 seed Clemson considered choking?

    Auburn's 6th leading scorer was out with an injury, so that loss is totally excusable.

    I am so dumb that I went to "my" school and a couple others.

    It is really hard to educate a dumb ass hillbilly like Bert.

    Should I root for Johns Hopkins soccer or Kentucky basketball?

    Maybe. I'm not overly invested in that recruitment, but I thought Memphis and Oregon had an edge on him. I think he might play overseas, too.

    Yes. But two years ago Auburn was surging. They still had problems getting their students to go to the games.

    Okay: 20 seasons ago UK was selling out. 40 seasons ago UK was selling out. Last year UK sold out, the year before that UK sold out. This year UK sold out. UK sells out. Please find out when the last year that UK basketball did not sell out.

    UK usually leads the country in attendance and the ticket prices are out the ceiling. Few students get to go. So please tell me what I am arguing about?

    Auhoosier is a nut case. Auburn has no following in basketball.

    Do I need to continue?

    That is important. UVA had the best guards last year and they won it all.

    Agreed and Auburn’s back court last year was probably top 5

    Well I hate to hurt your feelings but I’m gonna tell you something you might not like to hear. You and the other few dumbasses on this board that say you have to go to a school to be a real fan don’t determine what makes a fan! Saying that is only way you can be a “real” fan of a team is the dumbest shit ever.

    I am not. You chose a team because they were already good. Easiest thing to do as a fan

    To be fair, it's not the weed smoking (or vaping or ingesting or however he takes his weed). It's the other aspect you alluded to - internet-based anonymity. The only Auburn fans I know IRL are just fine (and we can all agree that whenever Auburn beats Alabama in football it's a good day).

    Ha...laughable.

    Just as one example, how can you possibly argue that he gets more out of his teams than Beard?

    Whenever he’s getting drugged in debating you that’s the card he plays. Weak ass argument if you ask me and also he’s closet IU fan so he’s gonna pimp those titles to make himself look good, what a loser.

    Probably not. Auburn can't play games for the rest of the conference.

    I like you.

    Thanks for having a level head on your shoulders and Go Big Blue when not playing AU. That’s all sports.

    Not trying to argue, but I think it’s close between the two lately.

    Just look at last year for Auburn, Bryce Brown was a two star and had one D1 offer besides AU and it was Charlotte. Leaves as arguably the best three point shooter in SEC history. Jared Harper has zero offers from his home state of Georgia and just a three star. Plays his ass off for three years and made his NBA debut last week with the Suns. Anfernee Mclemore had zero offers from his home state of Georgia and only three D one offers. He chose AU over going to MIT and was a 2 star. I could go on and on, but it’s not like we’ve been killing it recruiting wise until maybe starting now if we get Jalen Greene with Shariffe Cooper. Now, I’m not saying we aren’t getting top 20 classes lately, but we still finish about 6th-8th in the SEC alone over the last 4-5 years when it comes to recruiting rankings.

    If you’re going to judge talent by star rankings, then it’s Beard by a landslide. He just nearly won the national title with a bunch of nobodies.

    Harper was a 4 star. Wiley a 5. Purifoy, Spencer, Okeke, Mitchell, all 4s, etc. Several fours and a five in his current freshman class. Pearl has had talented and experienced players. Everyone has had a lower-ranked player that excelled. Rankings are fairly meaningless after the top 10 or 20. Patrick Mahomes was ranked about 400 for God’s sake. And he was doing the same shit in HS that he does now. His HS reel is absurd.

    I wouldn’t say that Pearl got the most out of his team when they were 30-balled by a lower seed a few years ago. Or during last year’s regular season. And this year? I’d say they’ve done roughly what they should have. Some solid wins, some bad losses, and won a bunch that they should have. He’s probably getting a little too much credit for a team that got hot for a few games.

    There’s really no comparing him to Beard in that dept right now.
