Auburn def. MSU, 91-76 (men)

Welcome to Beard-Eaves Memorial Coliseum for the Auburn-MSU men's game.

In case you were wondering from the picture above, I am sitting in the stands today. Space along press row was limited because I arrived a bit late today. So it goes.

  • FINAL
    Auburn 91-76.

  • FOURTH TO @ 2:24, 2nd half
    Auburn leads, 83-75. The Tigers are hitting free throws. Yes, I'm serious. Eight of their past 11, in fact. That makes a difference, too.

  • THIRD TO @ 7:56, 2nd half
    Auburn leads, 73-67. Waller is back at it. He scored on a drive, a three and now has three free throws awaiting after a savage mauling along the perimeter.

  • SECOND TO @ 13:20, 2nd half
    Auburn leads, 60-54. The Tigers have scored on seven of their last nine possessions. They've made some defensive stops, too. It makes a big difference.

  • FIRST TO @ 15:50, 2nd half
    MSU leads, 52-51. Auburn hasn't made many defensive stops today. It didn't seem like a big deal when Waller was going off earlier. Now the Tigers have cooled and MSU is still rolling along.

  • HALFTIME
    Auburn leads, 42-40.

  • FOURTH TO @ 1:19
    Auburn leads, 40-38. MSU is sitting in a 2-3 zone and the Tigers are having some trouble getting the shots they want. The Bulldogs aren't having those kinds of problems. They're basically firing away from outside and hitting.

  • THIRD TO @ 7:20
    Auburn leads, 32-20. The Tigers haven't really scored since the last update. The one point was Knox hitting the free throw on the and-one referenced earlier. That's a six-possession span of scoring futility. The good news for Auburn is that MSU seems similarly messy right now.

  • SECOND TO @ 11:10
    Auburn leads, 31-15. This hot start hasn't abated. I just saw Brendon Knox score an and-one on an alley-oop pass from Speed Reed. How about that?

  • FIRST TO @ 14:53
    Auburn leads, 18-10. Great start for Tay Waller. He already has five baskets from three-point range. Incredible.

WOW AU looking good today!

Someone posted on the other thread about the two possible assistants.

I am thinking it may be Lolley and Thigpen from UNC, named one of the top recruiters by Rivals 2007 and 2009. From reading the UNC site he landed 5 , 4*'s for UNC.

This is such a nice change of pace. Usually when I watch the Tigers I'm shocked when 3s and FTs go down. Tonight I'm shocked when they miss.

On the football side of things, Kiffin has his 3rd recruiting violation.

So they give the team with the most criminals the Fulmer Cup, will they give the coach with the most screwups the Kiffin Cup. The guy has 3 violations and a League Reprimand, what a champ.

Go AU!

Don't worry about me Jay G, I got it together. But watch out, if I get any more love, the waterworks might start.

In an aside, as I may have mentioned months ago, my wife does not think Jan Terri is funny and thinks it's dumb that I think she is funny. As you may also recall, I had a son about a month ago. When talking about the addition to the family, my two daughters always call him, "Little Brother." This of course triggers me to start singing "Little Brother" by Jan Terri. Well, in Target today, wife my said the phrase "little brother" to my oldest daughter, age 4, and she sang "Come on, little brother.." just like Jan Terri. I was so darn proud. My wife got mad and told her not to sing that song. I told her to sing it loud and proud. Our house is divided on Jan Terri (do they make those house divided license plates for Jan Terri? I will put one on the minivan)

Tarheel & P.F. - 'Preciate the posts concerning St Simons on previous blog. We will NOT be going to the Georgia Room, although I'm sure it is outstanding. We are pretty low-key folks, not to mention poor. I think we have enough spots to hit over a long weekend though.

Silence of the lambs was ok, but I wasn't interested enough to see the sequel (or was it a prequel).

I watched the end of the game ... impressive ... then I dashed to the kitchen to make some pasta with meat sauce, salad and garlic bread for Mrs. Jet and the Stewardess.

I had made Ghiardelli brownies earlier ... served them with vanilla and chocolate syrup -- that should get approval from Dr. H.

Is Silence of the Lambs really horror? I more consider that suspense/mystery. And I would call Aliens an action movie. But I am not a professional movie categorizer, so feel free to ignore.

8:24 PM

Wikipedia's first sentence was, "The Silence of the Lambs (1991) is a psychological horror thriller..." I changed it to "The Silence of the Lambs (1991) is a psychological suspense thriller..." to support my point.

Wikipedia's first sentence is "The University of Alabama is a four-year institution of higher education located in Tuscaloosa, Alabama ...," but I changed it to "The University of Alabama is located by the River Styx in the seventh circle of Hell." to better support my point.

You know, all it took was for me ... a Lebo defender ... to jump off the bandwagon, then they win three in a row. He doesn't suck ... he's a good X-O coach. It's the other things -- recruiting until this past year, selling the program, developing some of the players.

They won today because they made shots, and played defense at crunch time. Varnado made his points, but he didn't kill us.

Lebo needs players, but he needs to sell his program internally. That will help crowds, which helps build the program. I presume if they get to 7 wins he survives.

DoWhat? - sorry for the delay, I've been scanning/photoshopping very old family photos. One had giant chunk missing from my daughter's face, including an entire eye. She now has a complete face with 2 left eyes and mild hypertelorism. But you can't tell when you zoom out to normal size.

To answer your question... all they talk about is basketball up here. I checked the usual Carolina related web sites and found nothing pertinent.

Sen Jet - Thank you for correcting the UA-T wikipedia entry. I will sleep better tonight. And yes, I give your dessert a Mobil 5* rating.

Blogger TarHeelTiger (JaySr) said...

Of course, TarHeelTiger can't help but be a fan of UNC alum Lebo, though I recently feared he wasn't going to be able to survive until the new arena. I certainly hope he does. We've put up with 90% mediocre or worse basketball for about a hundred years, so even if he doesn't improve, we can probably live with it until we don't have to pay a big buyout. Remember, Wooden didn't reach the Final Four until his 14th year at UCLA.

9:27 PM  
Blogger Spongeworthy said...

War Eagle all. Big win for Lebo.
Jet, I too jumped off Lebo's bandwagon. The loss to an below average Vandy team and a blowout at Ole Miss will do that. I agree with you completely. Good xo, average recruiter, needs badly to sell the program. The new arena and dorms will help recruiting. Perhaps someone in the athletic dept should step up and lead Lebo in selling the program. Wouldn't that be a novel idea. Not everyone is a Bruce Pearl type of guy

Before I check out ... I'm heading out of town until Wednesday ... will have limited computer time.

If it were any team other than Alabama, I'd feel sorry for them the way the lost today ... a tip-in at the buzzer, which was reviewed.

The kicker: South Carolina's player touched the ball when it was on the rim, which is basket interference. It wasn't called.

The officials reviewed whether the player had his hand off the ball when the light came on. The ball was clearly on the rim ... but that's not reviewable. So the officials had no choice but to score the basket and give South Carolina the win.

Good morning hotties!

I classify a movie as horror if one of its primary goals is to give you nightmares.

A really good horror movie has a high peek factor. That's where you want to cover your eyes but have to peek out to see what's happening. This varies considerably with individuals and for me is rare.

PeterF- You're right, AJC is stupid on that one. 18 yr olds shouldn't be on a first name basis with the coach, anyway.
