Schedule update/Looking at: AU @ MSU
So the difficult times are upon us. The Advertiser's parent company, Gannett, has mandated that I take a one-week (unpaid) furlough beginning Sunday morning. I know. It sucks.
I am prohibited from posting here during the one-week (unpaid) furlough, so it'll be up to you to make the HABOTN interesting and informative. I know you can do it. You have done it three times before.
I hate that I cannot be here. It's 100 miles out of my hands.
I've got the Montgomery Academy-Lafayette game this afternoon and my church's Father-Daughter dance tonight, so there won't be much Auburn stuff to share.
Here's the box for tonight's Auburn-MSU game:

Notes: Auburn beat Georgia 82-63 on Wednesday night and now has one two of its last three games … Mississippi State is 10-1 at home this season … Varnado has blocked 120 shots this season and has 510 for his career … ``You have to be careful how you attack him. If you try to go around him and not through him, he will alter it or block it," coach Jeff Lebo said … Auburn has out-rebounded MSU only once during the past 17 meetings … Hargrove ranks among the SEC's top 10 in rebounding average (7.3), shooting percentage (50.2) and steals per game (1.5).
