AU fouls EVERY DAMN posession. Never been more angry with a win in my life. 2 times in a row AU has brought the thug ass mentality. I thought John Cheney was coaching AU sending some thugs at our guys.
Hey Barbee, why don't you teach Rob Choade how to block out instead of slap every one of our players every single second.
I brushed shoulders with him walking off the court after the game and he tried to foul me.
"I'LL WHIP YO @$$" -John Chaney
there was no effort a lot of time to play defense and they would just blatantly foul our guys.
I'm the biggest bama fan ever but people like u are not rational what so ever. Get a clue Barbee actually got alot out of his team considering several players are out and not much to play for.
I agree. I hate Auburn but didn't think they were playing "thug ball"....either way we beat that azz again and it doesn't matter

When your not very talented you have to be agressive on defense if not you get blown out.

This. When you dont have a lot of talent you have to slow the game down, and play physical D. Sometimes playing that hard D will get you in foul trouble with some ref crews, other times it wont.
YOu tell him 9209....I'd have already said it had I know Barbee was on this board!!
They were physical much like we like to be. However they got away with so many moving screens last night it was insane.
Having worked in C-USA I can say that there is a reason why Pastner got Memphis job and Barbee never had a shot at the job.
They always set moving screens, go and watch all their games. Chubb is the worst about it, he always sticks his shoulder out or knee out, or slides his hip into the defender.
Care to enlighten the rest of us?
Do you remember memphis being investigated after their championship appearance? Most people always assumed they got a slap on the wrist. There were other allegations that the NCAA thought were true, but very difficult to prove. I have heard from two sources one being very connected with the John Carrol program that Tony Barbee visited with Steele and Demarre Carroll and Memphis was immediately removed from both of their list. This source's parents are also boosters at Auburn and he informed me of this info before Barbee was hired as the Aub coach.
The other source was affiliated with UAB.
Calipari wanted barbee to get the Memphis job. NCAA heat came and memphis made the safe hire to prevent harsher penalties.
