SEC is way different than the early schedule it seems.

Elite defense. Sloppy, anemic offense. No hot hands, no confident shooters. It's like no one wants to take control on the offensive boards. Where are the offensive schemes to create some space/shooting lanes? They turn the ball over waaaaay to much. So sloppy with ball security. Give Auburn credit, they are a very good defensive team. Differences is they are marginally better on offense.

"Where are the offensive schemes to create some space/shooting lanes?"..... we don't have any. All we do is spread the floor and run a high ball screen. That's it. Makes we wonder what we actually do at practice. Seriously, I wonder that.

Is the offense “give it to Pinson and hope we get the rebound”? Because that was our offense last night.

When at first you don't succeed (like the 1st 10 min. of the game) keep doing the same thing over an over again. Insanity. Driving to the basket got fouls and higher percentage shots. Once LSU did that the score improved. New rule should be no 3pt. shots till we've scored 10 points to settle them down.

Here is an idea. If nothing is falling from behind the 3 point line how about crashing the boards.

Crash what boards? The Big Ole White Dude was swatting everything away!

Fire everybody. WW has lost the locker room. Coach O’s fault. Did I do that right?

Nah, man. It's Trump's fault. The Orange Dude is bad mojo.

I think they need to play a hard 15 minute scrimmage right before game time. I’m joking, but what the hell with these slow starts?

WW said we needed to score over 70 to win earlier in the week...Auburn had 70, we needed 71. The guy is a statistical genius!

WW and the DSOs sounds like a 80s cover band. But that what you get when you play the Alabama College for the Visually Impaired and Northern South Dakota State A&M pre-conference
