As much as it pains me to say it, Auburn looks stacked. They play 11 guys, have probably the #1 overall draft pick, and have very good guard play. Wouldn't be surprised if they make the Final Four.
Yeah...looked at Florida box score and no Aub player had 30 minutes or more. Surprisingly they don't just play through Jabari Smith

Side note.....one of of B10 commentators made reference to the fact that we are playing "through Kofi" (him getting more assists and "hockey assists"...i.e kick outside that result in a direct shot or relay to better outside shot)...opposed to past years when we played "to Kofi" for only a shot attempt. I thought that was a great observation and we are all glad to see the Kofi progression.

We can debate whether rankings matter until we are blue in the face, but is there anyone on here that doesn't think we are one of the 25 best teams in the country? I understand why we dropped out. It was early in the year, and I think we all were a little worried about our slow start (even without Kofi and Curbelo either out or struggling). But this team is much different now than they were in November. I think it's a little ridiculous we need teams in front of us to lose just to get in. We are one of the best 25 teams in the country, full stop.

I'd say we're actually one of the 15 best teams in the country, maybe even top 10.

We lost to Cincy and Marquette WITHOUT Kofi or Belo...................We have lost 1 game since Kofi came back . to zona..............If the voters don't understand that and how we are playing now , then it's time to get some new voters........With the age of the internet , youtube , etc , if a voter takes a haphazard way of voting, and not do just a little homework before voting, then we need new voters......................

If we don't get ranked in the top 25 on Monday , then for sure we need new voters....................I'm tired of the nova's and bama's and others getting the benefit of the doubt and us getting the short end of the voting stick..........I would vote us in the top 15-20 right now , as we are dominating the rebounding and playing ELITE (yep , I said it ) defense...........................And shooting light's out from the arc......What else do we have to do to get some respect ????

We deserve to be ranked dam**t...........we really really do..............................

I understand your sentiment, but Curbelo played in both those losses and Kofi played against Cincy.

Agree, but I think you are expecting too much from the voters. It will be hard to overcome their short attention span.
