Auburn def. Florida, 61-58 (@ SEC Tournament)

Hey everyone. As you may or may not know, I am not in Tampa due to budgetary constraints.

I also am not available to live blog because I'm taking high-school scores at Advertiser headquarters. This one is up to you until further notice.
  • Auburn wins, 61-58.

  • Florida leads at halftime, 29-28.

  • Auburn ended the first half on an 11-4 run.

Both teams look a little uptight.

does anyone else get the commercial interruptions in the middle of the game?

forced two shots already

9:00 PM

make that 3

9:01 PM  
Blogger AUMom said...

An offensive rebound would be nice

9:01 PM  
Blogger AUMom said...

That was 10 feet behind the 3 pt line

9:01 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

I wonder if these announcers realize UF played last night. Dammit joe dean is such a schmuck!

9:02 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

Honestly though..I bet the two extra shoot arounds and last nights game will help the gaytors a tad.

9:05 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

I just hate how this team of d-bag announcers runs things in the ground. They'll be on our free throw woes in a few..just wait..

florida's caucasians are ballin.

Blogger Peter Frankenschmidt said...

I tried to call in the Palisdes v B. Arnold High's field hockey score, but just got the sports editors's answering machine. Guess I dialed the wrong number.


Didn't make it to Tampa. Decided to wait and leave tomorrow morning.

9:09 PM

Auburn makes TWO free throws

9:10 PM  
Blogger barkley for governor said...

it's all good, they can't shoot this well all night.

9:11 PM  
Blogger AUMom said...

Who is that FL guy making 3s?

9:11 PM  
Blogger AUMom said...

4 for 5 on 3s. Florida is shooting well

9:12 PM

Frankie Sullivan = cash money.

9:12 PM  
Blogger depressedAUfan said...

That was great ball movement. Gotta hang tough with Barber out of the game.

9:13 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

Jhag is excited about Tay and Frankie in the future

9:13 PM  
Blogger depressedAUfan said...

Jay, didn't you compare Frankie to Frank Tolbert? He has really found his groove since mid-season.

9:17 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

Best game of this tourney so far. The rest were yawners. I sure hope these big time bricks start falling. Lets go tigers!

9:17 PM  
Blogger barkley for governor said...

they have to cool down eventually......i hope

9:18 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

why does that basket count?

9:19 PM  
Blogger barkley for governor said...

so you can foul someone after you made the shot? wow

9:20 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

We're looking rusty. We need UF to cool off quick.

9:22 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

I sure hope I'm not setting myself up for a major bummer, but I still feel pretty o.k. about this one. I've seen starts a little like this a few times during the streak.

9:22 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

And someone figure out the stupid pick n roll, leaving shooters and post guys open.

9:23 PM  
Blogger WDEwg said...

Good grief. At some point, UF is going to have to start missing threes. Also, Calathes carries the ball every time down the floor, for the love.

We look tight, and just when we loosen up, it's either a called or TV timeout. DADGUM IT.

9:23 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

Take that! No more threes from half court, lizards

9:25 PM  
Blogger barkley for governor said...

nice effort vot

9:26 PM  
Blogger jhag said...

why are we making free throws?

9:26 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

1 posession game! woot woot!

9:26 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Two HUGE possessions for Les Tigres.

9:26 PM  
Blogger depressedAUfan said...

UF is really tightening the screws on Barber. Someone is going to have to hit some outside shots.

9:27 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

UF returning to earth

But we are still caught in it's gravitation pull

9:27 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

calm the flip down hargrove!!! damn

9:28 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Wow that was a terrible pass inside off a great opportunity.

9:29 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Tolbert and Sullivan have a lot in common. Both play with extra enthusiasm, though Sullivan is more thoughtful with his real-time decisions.

Sullivan is more of a shooter. They both seem endlessly energetic on defense.

9:29 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

rasheem and hargrove make me so so so nervous

9:29 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

This is some pace. Let's hope it catches up with UF in second half

9:30 PM  
Blogger depressedAUfan said...

Sullivan looks more composed than the upperclassmen. Hopefully, AU can keep it within reach and come out strong after halftime.

9:30 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

Jay--They say after every game that they don't care, but do you think they know or care about maryland winning and temple and baylor being on the verge of stealing bids??...making this as much a must win as you could ever have.

9:33 PM

Frankie Sullivan Show!!!!!

good half boys

9:37 PM  
Blogger barkley for governor said...

i'll take 29-28, the way they shot from the three point line.

9:37 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

Whenever the point guard holds up ANY fingers ... that means give the ball to FRANKIE!!!!

9:37 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

WHAT A BOARD that was by Frankie! Awesome! 2nd half is all ours!

9:37 PM  
Blogger Matt said...

What a rebound by Frankie

9:37 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Phew what a half.

9:38 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

Frankie is playing 4 inches taller and 2 steps faster than everyone else.

9:38 PM  
Blogger smoothie b in tennessee said...

great way to close out the first half.

FRANKIE SULLIVAN IS PLAYING OUTSIDE HIS MIND!!!!!! i love it.

9:41 PM  
Blogger depressedAUfan said...

Someone has to step up and help with the scoring. You know UF will be paying extra attention to #20 in the 2nd half.

9:42 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

11-4 run to close the first half. I like where we are.

And I thought we were done with the Daves. Raycom...ugh

9:45 PM  
Blogger Andrew said...

You're right kristina. Raycom is bad bad bad.

9:46 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

I thinkthe years of play off experience, albeit high school, will help Sullivan. He has performed before when the pressure was on.

9:47 PM  
Blogger Seanzie said...

We need a first 5 minutes like we had in the LSU game, just knock these guys out early and then smother them.

9:47 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

I see AU going to Vot more this halp as UF will surely come out on Sullivan.

9:48 PM  
Blogger michael said...

It is always nice to feel like you should be down 10 at the half and be down only 1.

9:49 PM  
Blogger wtc said...

We are a long way from 70 points, which is what I think we need.

9:49 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

I give up. Raycom is showing the ACC and ESPN360 has blacked out the AU-Fla game. I live 40 miles from the ACC tourney in Atl and 600 miles from Tampa and the SEC game is blacked out?

My wife can't find the game on Dish, but she's not looking very hard.

Sadly, there is no logic to sports programming avaliability on TV, whether it is on Dish, cable or rabbit ears.

So Brando gave us no love this year and now says this the 1st time he has seen us in person.

9:54 PM

The game is on 3 different channels on DirecTV in Huntsville, all displaying various levels of craptitude in picture and audio.

And thanks for agreeing with me, Kristeenuh. Your opinion means the world to me.

if you flip to espn or espn2, it makes you sick looking at how much better the picture is.

10:02 PM  
Blogger Jay G. Tate said...

Tay Waller often takes bad shots. He's the best bad-shot shooter I've ever seen.

You can't poop on him for that. The statute of limitations expires months ago.

10:02 PM

And again Barkley.... Geez

Yes, Sunshine.

ooohhh.ouch

10:05 PM  
Blogger Kristina said...

Are you kidding me? Well at least he missed the free throw.

10:05 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

Speaking of justice, that was not a foul and he deserved to miss the FT.

Took a three to get us back to five. DARN!!!

10:06 PM

did ya'll see how long it took for them to update the score..screw Raycom

10:06 PM

the chances of vot making an easy basket are similar to the chances of tommy trott making an easy catch.

Yeah, Waller is the classic streak shooter. He either hits everything he puts up, or nothing he puts up.

why does that hoop not count?? we're getting jobbed!! Exactly the same as the calathes play.

surprised the refs didn't call that on AU..

10:11 PM

I think I've forgotten how truly loathsome and despicable the Gators really are. That's the price paid for whipping them in football for so many years.

Well, after watching the passing in this game, there ain't a QB on the court.

10:15 PM

You're right for once, Brando. Florida is crappy. Good point.

10:16 PM

This is ridiculous..these announcers..Jay who do we complain too?

10:16 PM  
Blogger barkley for governor said...

i'm telling you, they don't want the lead right now. that would be too easy

10:17 PM

Andrew, choosing Rod is a sure sign of desperation.

10:17 PM

Good Lord! What a contrast it's been going from raycom florida announcers to whining rod. I'll take the good guys though...whining and all.

10:17 PM

Finally a lead.

10:17 PM  
Blogger Comm'r of Flesh Wounds said...

I am getting worried now. The rim is jinx. The ball is cursed. We cannot get a lead.

And that was an offensive foul you %^%@#()()*@

Even Brando is making sense.

All is well

sorry he hit that three as I was typing and the next thing that came out was WAR EAGLE!! that was fun...anyway..uhh?
