That said, team is 7-4 in conf. play and tied for third place, yet today some complaining about Fox. How miserable are some of you people?

It's Georgia basketball. The good times have been rare. Enjoy the moment, especially since it may end Saturday.

"Fans can be very abusive today," said U of L head coach Rick Pitino. "Each year I've been in this business, it gets worse and worse."

Pitino has been coaching for nearly four decades. He was lambasted in Lexington in 2001 in his first game there as head coach of the Cardinals. In 2010, fans at West Virginia chanted "Karen Sypher" at least 10 different times (according to an AP count) when the Cardinals visited shortly after the gory details of that situation was made public. The chants were so loud, WVU coach Bob Huggins motioned for the students to keep it down.

Coaches hear it. Players hear it. The key is how to deal with it.

Asked if he's developed a thick skin over the years of hearing the chants and jeers, Pitino claimed, "What I've been through in the past four of five years (and heard) what's been yelled at me…I'm a rhinoceros."


Quote
The discussion on the subject emerged from a reporter asking Pitino about the recent Marcus Smart incident. Pitino says he doesn't worry about U of L fans verbally attacking a player to the point the player lashes out.

"The greatest thing about Louisville? It's a visiting team's dream," says Pitino. "When they announce the coach (at the KFC Yum! Center), everybody claps. Our fans aren't worried about the other team's coach or the starting lineup, they're worried about their next Maker's Mark," he joked.

The tough road crowds, like those at Rupp Arena (which Pitino calls one of the most dominant home court advantage in all of college basketball), will benefit the Cardinals when they face a different geography of enemy territory when Louisville moves into the ACC.

"We've heard every student body chant imaginable, so I don't think it's going to be any worse (than what we've already heard)," he says.

No doubt the fans at Duke, UNC and others are already orchestrating a welcome to U of L later this year.

Maker's Mark put up a billboard in Louisville after the Cardinals hired Pitino. It read, "Rick, you always looked better in red," with a prominent bottle displaying their signature hand dipped red wax.

It's Georgia basketball. The good times have been rare. Enjoy the moment, especially since it may end Saturday.

“We’re a better team than we were last year, yes. But that’s not because we lost Kentavious,” Fox said Monday. “We’d have been terrific if he stayed. But we’re better because we have Marcus (Thornton, who took a medical redshirt last year) back, because Nemi (Djurisic) has improved, Kenny Gaines has improved, Charles (Mann) has improved, Brandon Morris has improved. And that’s why we’re better.”

A four-game winning streak put Georgia (14-10 overall, 8-4 SEC) alone in third place in the SEC with an RPI rank of 88 on Monday...

Nobody has attempted more free throws than Georgia in SEC play this season, and it’s not close. Georgia has gone to the line 385 times, 60 more than Missouri. Getting there so much has masked many of the team’s other deficiencies, including 3-point shooting. Georgia is 13th in the SEC in made 3-pointers.

In conference play, Georgia leads the SEC in rebounds (40.2 per game), and is second in rebounding margin (an average of 7.9 more than opponents per game.)

D-Day is coming for Jay Jacobs. The Auburn athletics director is a week away from having to make the kind of decision about his basketball coach that he's made in the last two years about his football, baseball, softball and women's basketball coaches.

A year ago, Jacobs laid down a simple goal for Tony Barbee for this season.

"Significant improvement."

Jacobs put no numbers on it, using instead the "we'll know it when we see it" approach.

With one game left in the regular season and a date already secured in the SEC Tournament's First Four next week in Atlanta, there's only one conclusion to draw: This may be improvement compared to last year's debacle, the way a rainstorm is preferable to a hailstorm, but there's nothing significant about it.

Jeff Lebo was 10-6 in SEC games and won a couple of NIT games in his next-to-last season.

When asked to name the SEC's best team, former Vanderbilt and South Carolina Coach Eddie Fogler went with Kentucky's 1995-96 national champions.

Quote
Fogler noted how UK was so good that Derek Anderson and Ron Mercer split time at small forward.

"Holy (Toledo)," Fogler said. "... And a pretty good coach coaching that team (Rick Pitino)."

Fogler noted how Pitino's 1995-96 team identified and exploited the opposition's weak link.

"You couldn't hide," he said. "Put it that way."

Fogler won SEC regular season championships at Vandy in '93 and South Carolina in '97.

Coastal Carolina head coach Cliff Ellis, who won his first conference tournament title, becomes just the 10th coach in NCAA Division I history to lead four different programs to the NCAA Tournament.

Quote
Ellis will be leading a team to the "Big Dance" for the ninth time after taking South Alabama twice (1979 and 1980), Clemson three times (1987, 1989 and 1990) and Auburn three times (1999, 2000 and 2003).

Mark Fox may be feeling the heat


■Georgia coach Mark Fox is drawing praise from peers during Bullodgs’ historic run, writes Chip Towers of the AJC. “Only longtime observers of Georgia basketball can probably fully appreciate what his team managed to accomplish this season,” writes Towers.

... Kevin Scarbinsky: Should Tony Barbee and Anthony Grant get another year? Let's chat. http://ow.ly/uvvn4

On the clock

If you're Jacobs, do you bring Tony Barbee back for a fifth season? If you're Battle, do you give Anthony Grant a sixth season?

If you look at what's possible at both programs, at the glory days of Sonny Smith and Cliff Ellis at Auburn or C.M. Newton and Wimp Sanderson at Alabama, both Barbee and Grant have underachieved at a time when the SEC is at one of its lower points as a league in its distinguished history.

Barbee had more success at his last head coaching job at UTEP, as did Grant at VCU.

Battle hasn't said much about Grant's future, but the AD has offered encouraging words in his weekly Battle Plan blog about the way the team has fought through this year's adversity.

Jacobs has said even less about Barbee's future, and his call after last season for "significant improvement" has everyone wondering if this season is what he had in mind.

MrSEC: Over the weekend, Auburn sports information director Kirk Sampson decided to follow Bruce Pearl’s Twitter feed.

The internet then exploded.


Quote
A quick Twitter check yesterday revealed in one quick five-minute burst that fans of Auburn, Missouri, Ole Miss, and Tennessee were calling for Pearl to be hired by their favorite school.  To heck with Frank Haith, Andy Kennedy and Cuonzo Martin.  And more than a few Alabama fans were still grousing about Anthony Grant getting another year when Pearl is just sitting out there waiting for a phone call(!).

Common sense says pick Billy Donovan and Florida to win their third national title. (Kevin Scarbinsky) http://ow.ly/uGKf8

Did you know that the Florida coach is one win away from matching LSU legend Dale Brown for second on the career list for victories at an SEC school?

Donovan will equal Brown with his 448th victory at Florida on Thursday against the Albany-Mount St. Mary's winner. He'll pass Brown on Saturday against the Colorado-Pitt winner.

Then Donovan will be only 426 victories away from catching Kentucky legend Adolph Rupp's record of 875 wins. Don't laugh. Donovan is still only 48 years old.

Did you know that Donovan is only one national championship away from moving into truly elite company in that category? If the Gators live up to their No. 1 overall seed in the NCAA Tournament, they'll give their coach his third national title. That would equal Bob Knight and Jim Calhoun and put Donovan just one behind Rupp and Mike Krzyzewski, who each have four big rings.

Bruce Pearl will land at 1 p.m. at Auburn University Regional Airport.


Small consideration.  Pearl cannot "legally" recruit until his show cause penalty expires later this summer.

“I’m humbled and blessed to back in the game that I love,” Pearl said. “I don’t know how long it will take, but it’s time to rebuild the Auburn basketball program, and bring it to a level of excellence so many of the other teams on campus enjoy.”

Pearl replaces Tony Barbee, who was fired last week during the SEC Tournament. Pearl’s three-year show cause penalty expires in August, which means he can’t have contact with recruits this summer, but will be allowed to evaluate them during the July recruiting period.

Tennessee had only been to the round of 16 three times (ever) before Bruce Pearl. He went three times in 6 seasons. Auburn has been 4 times.

Full video of Pearl embracing the crowd, then playfully scolding a fan for having a cellphone ring. Guy's a natural http://cbsprt.co/1lLVb6X

Bruce Pearl said he loves teaching. Told Jay Jacobs he wanted to teach an ethics class. Said Jay didn't know if he could make that happen

SEC Commissioner Mike Slive said of Auburn hiring Bruce Pearl `I trust Auburn has done its due diligence' in hiring process. I was disappointed in the actions of Coach Pearl that led to his suspension and ultimate dismissal (at UT) but he will soon complete the requirements of his NCAA penalties. I have every expectation that he has learned his lesson and will run Auburn's basketball program in accordance with these expectations.'
